Canoe Creek State Park
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/canoecreek.aspx
Canoe Creek State Park, located 12 miles east of Altoona, is a modern day use facility developed during the Project 70 expansion era of state parks. The vast openness of this 958-acre park is exemplified by a panoramic view seen when cresting the hill on the entrance road. A 155-acre lake provides excellent year-round fishing, a popular swimming area and enjoyment for small pleasure boaters. Fields and woodlots are managed to provide diversified habitat for small game species and a variety of wildlife.

The park is the home of the largest nursery colony of little brown bats in Pennsylvania. On warm summer evenings, thousands of bats can be seen exiting the old church sanctuary. Education programs about bats are scheduled regularly during the warm months of the year.

Canoe Creek's proximity to nearby communities allows local residents to take a short pleasure drive and enjoy an evening of fishing, picnicking or walking. For visitors wanting to stay longer, eight modern cabins overlook the lake. They are within walking distance of the swimming area and are available for year-round rental. The rental period in the summer is one week. During the remainder of the year, they may be rented for a minimum of two days.

The park is open year-round. Winter activities include ice skating on two ponds next to the Beaver Dam Road Boat Launch, and also sledding, cross-country skiing, and iceboating.
