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.

We had a great time. Of course the weather was perfect, as was the ice. The rangers/instructors were patient and accommodating. We would definitely bring our Boy Scouts back again for the experience. Please be sure to let us know when you do it again; meanwhile we will continue to check the website. Thank you so much!

As usual, the class was filled when I got the email announcement....so I registered on the wait list and as usual was never called that there was an opening...very disheartening.
