“Lots to see a & do”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

My husband and I are fortunate to have a home a few miles from Hickory Run State Park. There's a little bit of something for everyone in the park. There are lots of hiking trails for all levels of hikers. Boulder Field is a National Natural Landmark and a great place to take kids. There's a swimming beach, camping and a playground. One of our favorite hikes is to Hawk Falls. It's a relatively short and easy hike at about 3/4 of a mile to a very pretty water fall. It's our go-to place whenever we have friends or family come to visit.

“Worth the walk!”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Beautiful park, great scenery and hike. Nice waterfalls, tho perhaps manmade (because of the dams). But, it's worth going to!

“Endless Trails/Not Great Trail Markers”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

Boulder Field has to be seen to be believed. Hikes are plentiful and loops can be self-designed easily. Just wish trail designations/trail heads/indicators along trails were a little clearer. Also Park office closed on weekends after third weekend in Oct. Not stocked w/enough trail maps for deluge of weekend fall foliage visitors. Download your own maps beforehand. Only porta john located near Park Office btw.

“Great for camping”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

We went camping for the weekend. A standard no electricity camp site with "modern" showers and bathroom.
Site was very good. There's a picnic table in good condition, fire ring and a pole to hang a lantern (which is located too far IMHO.
Showers and bathroom were clean. Better than other PA parks I've visited.
The park is beautiful. There are plenty of hiking trails in all levels of difficulty and it looks like you can spend days exploring the area.
Park store needs some serious upgrade - it's very minimal and many important items are missing.
