“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

This is a beautiful state park with great pavilions for family gatherings or picnics, a nice pool, a cute playground. And just walking around on the trails is great for birdwatching. The lake is beautiful and no motors are allowed on boats so it's peaceful. They also have campsites. Beautiful Pennsylvania at its best.

“Great place for a Grad Party!”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

We used one of their Pavillions for 2 seperate Grad Parties over the years and it was fantastic. The price for renting it is reasonable and you have Grills and water, all the picnic tables you could need. just bring your food, drinks and decorations.

“Great camping and hiking”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

The lake is beautiful. It's not far from town if you need anything and there are many other diversions not far away if you need something to do on a rainy day while camping. Perfect for day trips, fishing and family reunions!
