What Locals Love About It. 

  • “This is a fantastic park that is well-worth the drive from Harrisburg. Expansive, with plenty of parking and lots to do. Boating, picnicking, hiking – they have it all. Hiked a fair amount in the park and the trail system is excellent – can’t wait to get back!!” – Christopher M. via
