Samuel S. Lewis State Park Attraction Details
Samuel S. Lewis State Park
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/samuelslewis.aspx
This 85-acre state park is dominated by Mt. Pisgah, an 885-foot high ridge separating Kreutz Creek Valley and East Prospect Valley. This overlook offers a spectacular view of the Susquehanna River Valley. The park landscape consists of mowed grass fields on the northern and eastern park slopes, pine plantations in the southern area and mature woods on the western section of the park.

There are picnic tables, a ball field and playground equipment. Three picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Unreserved picnic pavilions are free on a first-come, first-served basis.

The short hiking trails in the park allow exploration of the pine forests and pass near interesting rock formations.

The crest of Mt. Pisgah is an excellent area for kite flying. Local groups and individuals gather to show their skills and offer help to novice kite fliers.

The 885-foot high Mt. Pisgah is the highest point in the area and offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Susquehanna River and the towns and fertile farmlands that it borders. A wayside panel is located on the summit of Mt. Pisgah near pavilion C and identifies various points of interest along the river valley. Coin operated binoculars are available.

Mt. Pisgah offers an uninterrupted view of the stars. Local clubs and organizations frequently hold star gazing events for the public.

The natural and scenic backdrop provides a popular site for weddings. Contact the park office for more information on planning a wedding in the park.

Before the area became a state park, an arboretum of unique trees was created. European beech, persimmon, concolor fir, English yew and several other unique species still remain. A few of these trees are identified with metal plaques.
