“Not much to do unless you bring your own boat”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We went there in an attempt to rent a canoe and go canoeing on the lake. We went there because a brochure of PA's state parks stated that Whipple Dam State Park had motor boats and boats. However, when we got there, the only boats there were private ones under lock. We stayed just long enough to take a short walk. It was okay, but nothing I would take anyone else to.

“Nice park and good eats”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

A small, no frills state park featuring swimming, boating, fishing and hiking spring through fall. Cross country skiing during the winter. Easily accessible from Huntingdon or State College. Recommend Doan's Bones BBQ just outside the entrance.
