Worth a Visit: Pennsylvania’s Mount Pisgah State Park

Mount Pisgah State Park, Pennsylvania© 2009 Little League BaseballThe lake attracts picnickers and boaters in summer and ice skaters in winter.

The 75-acre Stephen Foster Lake, named for the Pennsylvanian who wrote “Camptown Races,” “Oh! Susanna,” and other popular songs about the Old South, is the central feature of this 1,300-acre park. Stocked with bass, perch, crappie, bluegill, and bullhead, the lake offers good fishing, particularly in spring. Boats and canoes are for rent in the summer, or visitors can launch their own. The lake is restricted to electric motors only. In winter the frozen lake is popular for both ice fishing and skating.

Ten miles of trails pass through wooded acres, open farmland, and marshes. Since much of this countryside was once under cultivation, the effects of farming, such as fieldstone and stump fence rows, can be seen throughout the park.

The park sometimes sponsors maple syrup demonstrations in the spring. Visitors can see how sap is collected, boiled, and reboiled. Then everyone gets a free sample.

Open year-round. Check ahead for maple syrup demonstrations.
