“Kayaker Paradise”

Black Moshannon State Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Black Moshannon was a very nice campground. It is not at all near the lake. The lake is on the small side and fishing is difficult from the shoreline. Kayakers would love it, as too, would electric motorboater. There is a beach for the kids to splash in. The campground is clean, but the roads through the campground are tight- keep an eye on your side mirrors, so you do not hurt a tree or your rig. They have a very quaint campstore and it is within walking distance. There is no bike trail. We biked on the roads (adults & teenager), with caution. Quiet place for relaxation.

Nice park tiny beach and waterway is clogged with plants making kayaking a pain. If you are in the area a nice place to relax and have a picnic lunch.

We chose Black Moshannon because it was between where we live and where our friends live. We enjoyed our stay and would like to return in the future. The campground is well cared for with large sites. The restrooms are fairly new and very clean. The variety of hiking trails offers a hike for everyone. We enjoyed several hikes with our friends and their dog, none of which were too difficult. Although we did not take advantage of it, there is a nature program availabe almost daily. The lake is very pretty and everything is within walking distance from the campgrund. We wanted to rent a canoe buut were disappointed to find that the boat rental is closed on Monday and Tuesday. We did find it unusual that check in and check out is at 3PM, so if you arrive early, there is a chance that you may have to wait to occupy your site. No worry about this because there are plenty of places to park for a while and take a little walk until you can get on your site to set up.

Mountain lake with interesting plants and birds. Check the Bog Trial and for a longer hike the Moss-Hanna Trail.

Fishing "Blacky" is an experience every angler should partake in. Bass fishing can be tricky if you're not familiar with the lake, but panfish, pickeral and catfish flood these waters. If you know the tricks, fishing here can be very rewarding. Having access to a boat,kayak or canoe will greatly up your chances of getting into fish. Big bull bluegill and other panfish/catfish can be caught from shore on almost every cast. The scenery at Blacky is breathtaking. There are so many things to do at the park. Hiking, bike riding, bird watching and camping are stellar. Its definitely a "Go to" park
