Pymatuning State Park isn't the biggest but it sure crams a lot in! In fact, the size is due to the fact that the area is split up into smaller units which are sprinkled all along the shoreline of Pymatuning Lake.
The majority of this popular state park is located in Pennsylvania. In fact nearly 22,000 acres are! The rest sneaks into Ohio.
