Cherry Springs State Park

Cherry Springs State Park is nearly as remote and wild today as it was two centuries ago. Night sky enthusiasts flock to the park for its dark skies which are famous for great views of the Milky Way, planets, and hard-to-see astronomical objects and phenomena. Named for the large stands of black cherry trees originally found in the area, the 82-acre state park is surrounded by the 262,000-acre Susquehannock State Forest.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stargazing program. The interpreter was very knowledgeable and provided lots of great information. Viewing the planets and moon through the telescopes was great.

Very good. Unfortunately the sky was totally obscured by clouds (they were crystal clear the night before and the night after) but the rangers were still really helpful. They told us about the astronomical events and answered all our questions. On other nights, when we didn't have a tour reserved, they were just as helpful.

Unfortunately, the weather was uncooperative and the clouds got in the way of a good show. Excited to go back on a clearer evening.
