Where are we going today?
Pennsylvania has some amazing scenery, so why not get out there and explore it! Go on kids, turn those phones off - you have a whole world to explore!
Mount Pisgah State Park is a beautiful region of Pennsylvania's Northern Tier, with 1302 acres of wilderness for you to explore.
Only 2 miles north of US 6, you don't have to travel far to really get into the natural beauty of the USA.
In addition to the beautiful forests, there is also a 75 acre lake within Mount Pisgah State Park where a host of activities wait for you also!
Let's start with the lake! Grab those boats and head out with your electric motor because there are some pretty spectacular sights to be had from the center of the lake!
Fishing is also a popular sport within the park, with perch, bass and crappie just some of the fish that you can challenge yourself to catch. The west side of the lake is also ADA accessible too!
Think a lake is just a summer activity? Think again! When that ice forms over the water, you can enjoy some ice skating depending on ice conditions. Ice fishing is also a great way to spend the time! How much fun does that sound!
For those families who love sticking to the land, there is cross-country skiing and snowmobiling during winter, and in summer - where to begin!
There are 11miles of trails that are suitable for all - from the casual walker to those serious hikers. They take you through old fields, open farmland, woodland, and rugged terrain.
Mount Pisgah State Park also has a swimming pool open from Memorial Day to mid-August, which is the best way to cool off, and there are also plenty of picnic areas for you to enjoy!
So why not get out there are enjoy what Mother Nature created just for families like you!
How much does it cost?
When can we go?
The park environmental interpretive center houses artifacts and displays linking us with our past. You can learn about early farm life and the wildlife around us. A walk through the butterfly garden enables the visitor to catch a close glimpse of the area’s “flying flowers.”.
There is a snack bar with food and drinks within the pool complex.
There are picnic areas near the pool where you can enjoy shaded or sunny tables. There are three pavilions where you can reserve for a group.
Any Top Tips?
Swimming is not permitted in the lake, so make sure you enjoy the pool if you want to cool off.
