We took our two year old granddaughter to Shaver's Creek to visit the Raptor Center. We all had a great time. She loved the owls, eagles, hawks, and the falcon. We listened to a presentation by one of the employees which was informative and interesting. The hiking trails are plentiful and stroller friendly. Shaver's Creek also has a Discovery Room... More

Now that Lake Perez is (finally) refilled, Stove Valley is a great little outdoor gem about 25 minutes from downtown State College. An excellent place for canoe, rowboat, and sailboat rentals, or just to walk around. The raptor rehab center at Shavers Creek is an excellent diversion for kids of all ages (recent college graduate daughter never knew it was... More

Programs and staff - all excellent. Facility well maintained and space utilized. Nice grounds complement their commitment to environmental education and an appreciation / preservation of natural areas.

They used to hold the Regatta here, back in Stone Valley's heyday. They have a nice ropes course, nature center, and a small lake that they have finally refilled. Too few concessions, but with a little work and advertising, they could bring it back to where it was in the 1970's. The lodge is clean, the rental cabins could be... More

Stone Valley is lovely. Many trails and places to picnic. There's boating and boat launches, but no swimming. A nice place for a day trip.

Stone Valley is a lovely place to take an afternoon hike. They have a bird sanctuary with bald eagles, owls and many types of other birds. Lake Perez, which is part of Stone Valley, is currently dried up. There are however pretty streams flowing by the hiking trails.

My sister had her wedding at the Stone Valley Lodge. It had great kitchen facilities, a gorgeous main fireplace and enough room inside for a nice set up, although there wasn't air conditioning and it got pretty hot inside. Some tables had to be moved to make room for a dance floor. Lot's of people stayed the night in one... More
