Canoe Creek State Park

The beautiful, 958-acre Canoe Creek State Park features a 155-acre lake, wetlands, old fields and mature forests, which provide critical habitat for migrating birds and for one of the largest bat colonies in the Commonwealth. The lake is popular for fishing year-round. Hikers enjoy the trails that wind through the many habitats. Picnicking, swimming at the beach, enjoying educational programs, and staying the night in a modern cabin are also popular activities.

DISSAPPOINTING!! I just got home after driving for 7 hours total to attend this event and no one was there. I registered with a live person about a week ago. He took my credit card information and telephone number and said I would get a call if this event was cancelled. No one bothered to call me! There was not even a sign on the learning center letting people know that the event was cancelled. Unprofessional and inconsiderate.

I loved every minute of it. Wish they had guided hikes more often.
