I love to walk around Hickory Run State Park! There are so many nice trails and interesting things to see. I highly recommend exploring this park for couples, families, etc. Great places for kids to run around. I haven't been there in awhile but I'm planning on going again in the spring. If it ever gets here!

We had visited the Park several years ago and decided to stop in to see the Boulder field. we stopped at the park office for information and found out that the road to the "Boulder Field" was closed to motor vehicles and was only available to snowmobiles. We probably spent half an hour discussing the park with the attendants. They... More

With 18 inches of snow on the ground cross country skiing was out of the question. So we decided to go snowshoeing at hickory run state park. We parked at the amphitheater since the parking lot is plowed. We hiked a few miles and found the terrain perfect for out tracks. We really enjoy this park for various outings.

From waterfalls to fishing, hickory run is a great get away to the outdoors. You can hang at the beach and eat ice cream or take a walk on boulder field. This is a great location in Pennsylvania.

This place is really cool. I assume that kids would love it. The boulder field is amazing. The wildlife is nice too. We saw two bears.

A very nice park to visit in PA> In summer there is a nice lake with a sandy beach and facilities. Just have to check about lifeguards, as sometimes State funding ends up with them cutting guards. One 'must do' is a visit to Boulder Field. It's a deposit of boulders from the ice age, and is truly awesome to... More

The lake side beach is good. The state park is quite big and we were not able to cover the entire park, however, we went towards the lake side and had good time with friends. Wish we had more time to explore more...

This is the second time I have been here. It is truly a magnificent creation. It amazes me that this would be where it is at. I would come here again. I just wish that there was a t-shirt I could buy depicting the boulder field.

Have never seen anything like it. Amazing geology due to glacier age. Must do if you're in the area. Worth the 3+ mile down a 1 lane road to get there.

We had an afternoon to kill while visiting family in Hazelton and went to check out this park. The mid October colors of the forest were really beautiful and we enjoyed driving through the park which is free to do. From what we could tell you only have to pay if you are camping. There are plenty of trails and... More
