This is a great family place, with picnic pavilions, hiking trails, a nature center and a lake. It's a bit of a drive but worth it!

I have been going here pretty much since the day it opened. You name it: boating, fishing, hiking, x-c skiing, great interpretive programs and picnicking. My wife and I often come here on summer evenings to BBQ and relax, hardly anyone around during the week. Impeccable grounds, upkeep and facilities. Best park in the Danville/Montour county area. Be sure to look for the bald eagle.

Used to really enjoy going here to go fishing, but the kayakers are ruining it for everyone - they run into you, are loud (scare the fish) and are obnoxious. The picnic areas are always crowded & the kids get in your way when you're trying to launch your boat.

The fishing is terrific! Would definitely do it again. Only problem is there is no place close by to eat.

This is such a great place. Free. Lake is open to boaters - we take our kayaks and just float along. It's so big too that we never get bored. There are a lot of trails - large and small for whatever you're into.
