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

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!

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.

We stayed in our camper twice, most recently in 2012. We found it friendly, clean, and beautiful with the mountains and trees. We have dogs and there are spaces just for campers with animals, which is perfect. There is a small beach and lake to swim.

It is in close proximity to State College and that makes it a gem. It is one of the things that makes it such a great place to visit.

Nice little park with something for everyone! Camping, picnic areas, pavilions that can be reserved, a trout stocked lake with a beach, hiking trails and close to huning areas. We have had church outings and family reunions here.
