Update 3/26/20: State park facilities will remain closed statewide to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Pennsylvania State Park facilities are now closed until April 30 to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As part of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, all buildings in the parks, including park offices, restrooms, campgrounds, cabins, marinas, shoreline mooring, boat racks, all reservable facilities, and all forms of accommodations are closed. All events and public educational programs are canceled. The public will still be able to access trails, lakes, rivers, non-marina docks, forests, roads, and parking areas for passive and dispersed recreation, such as hiking. Anyone with reservations in this time period will be contacted, and full refunds will be made. While these park facilities are closed, state park rangers and park managers will continue to work to ensure security and that public safety is protected.
The best advice to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to stay home, not recreate in large groups, and practice social distancing. 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. Visitors can help keep state parks safe and clean by doing the following: avoid crowded parking lots and trailheads, use the bathroom before you visit, bring a bag and carry out your trash, clean up after pets, and avoid activities that put you at greater risk of injury, as there is limited staff to assist.
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.
