Raccoon Creek State Park

Raccoon Creek State Park has continued to develop from the park’s beginning as a Recreational Demonstration Area operated by the National Park Service in the 1930s, to one of the largest and most beautiful state parks in Pennsylvania. Facilities at the park are a mix from the early Civilian Conservation Corps camp to modern facilities. In addition to recreational areas, there are large tracts of undeveloped land. The 7,572-acre park features the beautiful 101-acre Raccoon Lake.

A Non-Denominational church service is held at the Campground Amphitheatre in F Loop every Sunday, 10 AM to 10:30 AM, from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend.

Wonderful hike in the Park with Pat and Shane. We even had the honor of witnessing a group do the polar bear plunge into the lake.
