Codorus State Park

The 3,452-acre Codorus State Park is in the rolling hills of southern York County. The 1,275-acre Lake Marburg has 26 miles of shoreline and is a reststop for migrating waterfowl and shorebirds. The lake is also popular with sailboaters and motorboaters. Anglers love the lake for warm water fishing and can also fish Codorus Creek for trout. Picnicking, swimming in the pool and camping are popular activities.

It was a really good time. People were nice and the adventure was fun. If your tired of paddling alone, this is a good option. Shareing time with people with the same interests.

Everything was provided, very fun and informative. Relaxing paddle in the dark was amazing with the moon and we saw a large meteor!

We had a really nice time at the Homeschool Day learning about wildflowers! It was our first one that we attended and we all enjoyed it. The kids had a great time learning, playing and exploring with crafts, games and nature walks! We would definitely like to join another one!

Found out it was cancelled when we happened upon a ranger that was taking down the sign.

I organized this event (pontoon ride) for my meet-up group. They absolutely loved it. We had a picnic dinner beforehand, then this! The volunteer was fabulous with so much information - history, flora and fauna. Thank you!
