After some 150 years of oil and gas drilling, coal mining, and strip mining, this landscape was an ugly, polluted, and deserted wasteland. Thanks to exhaustive environmental restoration work, it's now a beautiful park with rolling hills, lush forests, a large lake, marshes, swamps, and countless recreational opportunities. There are trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Many visitors enjoy fishing for bass, Northern pike, and other fish. A fishing license is required for any fishing. The park's two swimming beaches are guarded and feature concession stands and restrooms. Handicapped-accessible restrooms and facilities are available. Other activities include boating (20 hp limit), sailing, ice skating, and sledding. There are 11 boat-launching sites at the park marina. Available amenities include 11 cabins (reservations required), bike and boat rentals, and tent sites for organized youth groups. Pets are permitted in the park and must be on a six-foot leash. No pets are permitted on the beach or in the cabins. No alcohol is permitted in any Pennsylvania state park or state-run campground. This ban is strictly enforced. I-79, exit 99.
It's a nice park. I like the beach
