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

My family found a remarkable place for family get togetherness away from gadgets with "twitfacing" in this lovely state park. There are wonderful hiking trails, historical iron works and great swimming at the "beach" as my kids called the dam/little lake and little or no Network with the major carriers. There are great bathroom facilities with hot showers, pavilions for... More

This is a lovely PA State Park. There is a small lake with swimming, scenic mountains with hiking, and a few historic attractions. The park concession stand even had wonderful REAL food!

Greenwood furnace is a beautiful and historic state park. I have usually been a day use person, but there is camping. Greenwood was once the site of two charcoal irurces includeon furnaces circa 1900. There is a small visitor center which interprets the iron story. There is great fishing, hiking, and picnicing. Historic resources include an iron masters house and... More

My husband took our adult children and their spouses to Greenwood Furnace for part of the day. We enjoyed reading the plaques about the furnace and walking around and inside of it. Then enjoyed walking around the lake and had a picnic near the sandy shore. The beach is small, but it wasn't crowded. There were a few hiking trails... More
