One of the Most Relaxing Pennsylvania State Parks!
Visit this small park in central Pennsylvania located on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Once a prime logging route, this river now is host to scores of waterfowl and fish. Great for boating and fishing, this picturesque recreational area is sure to please.
During your visit, be sure to set aside time to ride the historic Hiawatha paddle wheel riverboat, located in the heart of the park. This re-creation of an 1800s riverboat has been plying the Susquehanna for more than 30 years and is available for public rides 6 days a week - closed Monday.
