Prince Gallitzin State Park

At Prince Gallitzin State Park, the forested hills of the Allegheny Plateau cradle sprawling Glendale Lake. Vistas offer scenic views of the 1,635-acre lake with its 26 miles of shoreline, which is a favorite of anglers and boaters. Campers flock to the large campground and also enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities. The varied habitats of the park make it a home for many types of wildlife, and a rest stop in the spring and fall migrations.

We enjoyed our Wildlife watch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We saw where the bald eagle nest is and she helped us identify the wildlife at Prince Gallitzin Park that we have been seeing on our many kayaking adventures.

The presenter moved about the audience assisting where she was needed. Pointed out various objects in the sky and was very knowledgeable.

The egg hunt itself was awesome. We were a bit disappointed though with a few things such as people smoking, children older than 3 in the younger area, and adults scooping up eggs right out from little children trying to pick them up. We walked with our children, but didn't pick any up. That's the point of separating ages, so the little ones can enjoy thethrll of the egg hunt without bigger children or adults taking them all. On the end of the park, though, we thought it was well planned. We liked the idea of earning prizes in eggs rather than waiting, plus that there was a wait between ages so parents can watch all of their children. Thank you for holding the event!
