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.

Unfortunately, I was unable to go because I was on the waitlist. I didn’t receive a confirmation that a space freed up for my husband and me.

Lora Russell is a real treasure. She can help a person with limited artistic ability create a painting they can be proud of. Her classes are a joy to attend.

Very informative. After that went out on the trails and helped Shane as he cut downed trees that were across the trails at the Wildflower Reserve.

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.
