When visiting this area, we always try to make it a point to walk around Shawnee Lake on this very nice trail. You may even get a chance to spot a bald eagle or an osprey diving for dinner. The trail offers a fairly easy grade.

I would recommend Shawnee state park to visit and fish. But not to swim when there is lack of rain in the season. One has to be cautious of the bacteria levels in the lake. But the State park is a great place to walk, bike, fish, picnic, and play at. The little town of Schellsburg is a blink to... More

For a place to camp in summer try this state park. Over 100 sites with or without electricity. There is a huge lake with boating, fishing and swimming. Picnic areas, too. It is right on US 30, Lincoln Highway west of Bedford.

I was just in that area for a weekend of field trips with a birding group. I checked out the lake and park friday, saturday and sunday. I enjoyed the water, scenes and wildlife. I hope to come back and possibly camp and picnic here too. Another wonderful example of the state parks our state of PA offers.

We took the 3.4 mile walk around the major part of the lake and it was delightful. Some lovely views of the lake. A nice thing to do in the morning.

This is a very scenic and pretty park. There are lots of nice picnic areas however some of the table are in need of replacement. A great. The hike around the lake is just a little over 3 miles and an easy walk/run. Boating, fishing, swimming, ball fields , play grounds, and camping available.

I grew up going to Shawnee to swim, walk around the lake and have family picnics. So last week I took my husband and son for a walk around the lake. We had a lovely 4 mile walk around the lake. This is particularity a great walk to bring a dog. Great park for family fun whether that is swimming,... More
