Shikellamy State Park

The confluence of the North and West branches of the Susquehanna River divides Shikellamy State Park into two sections. 

In the middle of the North Branch Susquehanna River, the 50-acre Marina Section of Shikellamy State Park is the tip of Packers Island in Northumberland County. This eastern section of the park offers a marina, two boat launches, picnic tables, pavilions, paved paths, and close-up views of the river. 

On a 360-foot cliff overlooking the confluence of the river branches is the 190-acre Overlook Section of Shikellamy State Park. In addition to three scenic overlooks, the western section of the park in Union County offers hiking trails, picnic tables, and pavilions.
