“Nice lake with beach, picnicking and camping accommodations”

Poe Valley State Park
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Coburn
Attraction details
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Hiking paths, beach and picnicking grounds with campsites just a short walk away. Used to go there for family vacations when I was a child. Other than added electrical hook-ups in the campground area, has not really changed much. A forested place to get away and enjoy peaceful mountain scenery.

We were actually renting a house past Poe Paddy Park, and found this gem our last few days on vacation. The park is pretty remote, but really beautiful. We visited the beach and picnic areas, and they are wonderful. The kids had a blast. The beach is a sand beach with the sand continuing into the roped off swimming area of the lake. The water is pretty shallow, perfect for young children. They have a very nice concession stand, that also rents canoes, kayaks and paddle boats by the hour. They do have additional small grocery items in case you forgot something. Believe me it is a long way out to the store. There is also a nice play area for the kids. The bathrooms and showers are very new and clean. The picnic areas are shaded and plentiful. Would love to go back and would recommend it highly. They don't charge for day use, which suprised me.

We stayed here for the first time the last weekend of June 2012 in one of the camping cottages. It has almost everything we - a lake with a swimming beach, beautiful scenery, a remote location (with no cell phone coverage). It's a bit of an adventure as there are no paved roads leading into the park. We made the mistake of traveling to the park via the road that runs through nearby Poe Paddy state park - that road was a little more "adventurous" than we had expected.
While staying here, we took a trip to Penn's Cavern which is one of the few caves that is toured completely by boat. It was a nice cool trip on a hot day that the whole family enjoyed.

My family lives near Poe Valley, and we have a sort of tradition of going yearly with our family. It's always fun, and there is so much space that even if there are other families there you will feel alone with just yours. Poe Valley is a great place to spend a day with family or friends..
