Colton Point State Park

On the west rim of Pine Creek Gorge, also known as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, the 368-acre Colton Point State Park resonates with the rustic charm of the Civilian Conservation Corps era of the 1930s.

The rugged overlooks offer great views of the canyon. Leonard Harrison State Park is easily visible on the other side of the canyon.

Seasons and Hours

The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk.
