Park Activities

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.

Grew up here. Love the campground...dog friendly. Staff is great. Have also spent a great amount of time at the cabins. Beach is clean and lots of groomed trails for hiking and cross country skiing. Lots of activities for kids and easy to get around. My kids love to go to the spillway and catch crayfish. Beavers are a blast to watch at dusk. Camp store and updated shower/restroom facilities. great place to spend a week or weekend spring thru fall. Kids always meet new friends and go back to see them each year we camp.
