Parker Dam State Park

The 968-acre Parker Dam State Park offers old-fashioned charm and character. A scenic lake, rustic cabins, quaint campground and unbounded forest make Parker Dam an ideal spot for a relaxing vacation. For wilderness explorers, Parker Dam is a gateway to the vast expanses of Moshannon State Forest. You can walk through recovering tornado ravaged woods, backpack into the 50,000-acre Quehanna Wilderness, mountain bike to your heart’s content or enjoy quiet solitude searching for elusive Pennsylvania elk.

Our Boy Scout Troop was given a tough job to do, and the boys did one great job! We had a great time - this is our second year for Woodsy Owl! The lunch provided was delicious!!!

It was my first time there... I enjoyed it very much. Although understand it was the small event due to Clearfield changing their festival date

This workshop was fabulous if you like the outdoors. The park was great, the instructors enthusiastic, the activities were fun and engaging. I now have tons of ideas for incorporating wildlife education into my classroom.

The crisp sunny New Year morning and enthusiastic group made for an educational and invigorating first day walk. While I'd recommend an option for extended walk for those interested, it was a wonderful way to start 2017
