Stopped by to get some information about the hike up to the top of Seneca Rocks. They have a path for you to take up and an observation tower overlooking the rocks. They have a small gift shop in it as well. We were able to see some rock climbers scaling up to the top of the rocks. They were... More

This is one of the nicer state park stations I have visited. The facilities are very well designed, spacious and with an excellent view of Seneca Rocks. The 3D map is especially useful for newcomers to the region who want to hike, since you can get qood feel for the terrain before you go. The friendly ranger I met helped... More

The Center has an area for kids to play, 3-D maps, free state and park maps, and a gift shop among other things. The shop has many items at affordable prices. I particularly liked the choice of books. Actually did some Christmas shopping. The staff was very knowledgable and helpful. The building is very light, airy, and clean with a... More

If there is something you want to know about the area or find a book that tells the history from the eyes of soldiers who used Seneca for training or maps or just ask questions! Look around! You won't see this anywhere else!

Went through the center to go up Seneca Rocks. It is 1.5 mile walk up to the base of the rocks. It is so worth the sweat and exercise. Did not expect I would actually be standing @ the very top! Wohoo!

Our vacations consisted of camping whereever there was a good trout stream of which there are many in Pendleton County. The last time I was here there was a small... More
