Bald Eagle State Park

The 5,900-acre Bald Eagle State Park is in the broad Bald Eagle Valley of northcentral Pennsylvania.

With two campgrounds, boating, fishing, swimming, the Nature Inn, and diverse habitats that are excellent for wildlife watching, Bald Eagle State Park is a great destination in the heart of Pennsylvania.

Nice presentation. The length was great for fidgetly young boys who love nature but not sitting still too long. :)

Awesome 2 hour hike and history of the area. We enjoyed learning about the area and the changes to the area when the dam was built. We had a great educator that had just started a few months before and was very knowledgeable considering she only had a few weeks on the job.

The birdwalk begun on time. Binoculars were provided to all of us (to my wife, my 7 year old and me). It was an easy 90 minute walk and we observed osprey, red winged blackbird and a few more. Nice experience.
