We passed this park on the way to Whipple Dam State Park. After spending the day at Whipple, we returned to Greenwood Furnace around 4pm. Very nice area, and would love to spend a whole day here. Swimming area with beach was better than most state parks. The furnace and it's history were also very interesting. Not very busy at... More

Lovely spot for family fun. Safe beach for paddling, shallow waters for swimming and space for boating too.

Have visited this park many times - it's a hidden gem nestled in the mountains! The beach and lake are wonderful in the hot summer and the trees provide shade for the picnic area. There are bathrooms, showers with warm water, changing stalls and a snack bar that provides lunch fare and treats. The spillway is not to be missed... More

Unfortunately, the weather was not good when we visited, but you can tell it's a great place to spend a sunny day. Restrooms, picnic tables, covered area, jungle gym. dock. You could probably even canoe. Just lovely nature all around.

Grew up swimming in the lake and playing on the beach. Now that I'm older, I love to hike the several trails they have. Some of the extended trails are overgrown in May, but I got a machete for Christmas. Problem solved. We RARELY encounter anyone else on the trails. Peaceful. Serene. Still haven't seen Bigfoot.

Our group met for a picnic and we were able to use a pavilion. There was a grill for using charcoal near the pavilion. There were clean bathrooms nearby. We were there during a weekday evening, and the picnic area was not busy. I have also attended the park in the past and our family has enjoyed hiking and swimming... More

This park has ample parking and facilities to be there 1 day or 1 month, camping. The furnaces were really cool to look at and a key part of not only the areas history, but the countries.

I went here to check out the best mountain biking in PA. I had a good time but it wasn't all that. I did 25 miles in the Coopers Gap area -most of the IMBA Epic ride. I never felt challenged too much. Lots of rock gardens for sure. I have been mountain biking the New England area for 20... More
