My daughter and I made a visiting two years ago and the park was amazing. I've been to a number of State Parks in both PA and MD, but I've never seen the large number of wildlife that we came across that day. Tons of birds, small fish, lizards, deer, rabits, fox and even a young rattlesnake that had caught a fish and was fighting to kill, then eat it. However, the fish wasn't giving up that easy and the small rattler wasn't really sure how to swallow it. It was great to see this life struggle and it was happening right in front of us near the waterfall and stream. My girlfriend and I went back just recently and found that it hasn't changed, great wildlife and a really nice waterfall. Worth the hike!!!!!!
