Pine Grove Furnace State Park Attraction Details
Pine Grove Furnace State Park
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/pinegrovefurnace.aspx
The historical character of the park is enhanced by its natural beauty. This park was once the site of the Pine Grove Furnace Iron Works that dates from 1764. Historical buildings include the ironmaster's mansion, a gristmill, an inn and several residences.

Seventy-four tent and trailer sites are available year-round. Access cannot be guaranteed in severe winter weather. The campground offers drinking water, non-flush toilets and a sanitary dump station.

Two guarded beaches are available from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. In the summer season, a snack bar is available at each beach. Boating, electric motors only, is permitted only on Laurel Lake. Laurel Lake has a boat launch, 85 mooring spaces and a boat rental.

Many picnic tables are scattered in the park. Charcoal grills, drinking water and restrooms are available. The chief species of fish in Laurel and Fuller lakes are pickerel, perch and stocked trout. Mountain Creek, which flows through the park, is stocked with trout.

The Ironmaster's Mansion is operated by the American Youth Hostel, Inc. Overnight, dormitory-style lodging, cooking and dining facilities are available.

The accessible park interpretive center has exhibits on the historic charcoal iron furnace community that flourished here for over 100 years. A self-guiding trail brochure is available at the interpretive center.

At Laurel Lake, an area is maintained for ice skating. Ice fishing is permitted in the rest of the lake. Ice sports are not permitted on Fuller Lake. Nordic skiers can enjoy the use of the railroad. Although no trails are specifically designated for cross-country skiing, numerous opportunities exist, both within the park and on the surrounding state forest lands.

There are a number of hiking and historic trails, including a segment of the Appalachian Trail. For more information, contact the park office or visit the park Web site.
