PLEASE NOTE: The boating season at Shikellamy State Park will end immediately after Labor Day in September of 2021 due to necessary repairs to the Adam T Bower Memorial Dam that creates the seasonal recreational pool of Lake Augusta on the Susquehanna River. The repair work will consist of replacing one of the seven inflatable bags on the dam, and is scheduled at this time of year to best take advantage of favorable weather and river flow conditions. Replacing the inflatable bag and construction of a temporary causeway necessitate ending the boating season on September 6th, 2021. All marina slip holders are required to remove their boats from the Shikellamy State Park marina by sunset on September 6th, 2021. The deflation process will begin the following day and take approximately 2 weeks. During this timeframe the parks docks will be removed. The bag replacement project is anticipated to be completed near the end of October 2021. Slip holders will be prorated fees for the shortened 2021 season. For additional information please contact the Shikellamy State Park Office: 570-988-5557.

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.
