Social Distancing (6/26/2020)

All visitors are required to wear a mask when entering state park buildings.

     Visitors can help keep state parks safe and clean by doing the following: wear a mask, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer regularly, avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose, cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow. If you are sick, stay home.

     The best advice to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to stay home, not recreate in large groups, and practice social distancing (stay six feet apart). If you are looking to be outdoors, stay as close to home as possible including your backyard, neighborhood, or local park or trail unless they are crowded or closed.

SPOT THE PROBLEM. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect that poses a serious threat to Pennsylvania’s resources, businesses, and economy. To date, our park does NOT have these pests. Help us stay lanternfly free and stop the spread. Visit the Penn State Extension’s Spotted Lanternfly website to learn how to identify it, report it, and inspect your vehicle or gear when traveling to and from the quarantine zone.
