Penn Roosevelt State Park Attraction Details
Penn Roosevelt State Park
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/pennroosevelt.aspx
This park is located in the scenic Seven Mountains area of Pennsylvania. The Mid State Trail bisects the park and provides backpacking opportunities in the Ridge and Valley Province. Extensive forested areas provide hikers with a variety of habitats, wildlife and many scenic vistas.

The picnic area is on the west side of the lake. Picnic tables and a picnic pavilion are available on the eastern side. Drinking water and restrooms are available year-round.

The 19 campsites are for tents only. Some sites are walk-in for more privacy. Drinking water and non-flush toilets are available. Due to the isolated location, Penn Roosevelt provides an excellent opportunity to get away from noise and electric lights.

Penn Roosevelt offers a number of winter activities, but the roads to the park are not plowed in the winter. Cross-country skiing is permitted, and snowmobiling commences the day after the close of antlerless deer season.

The small, 3.5-acre lake at the confluence of Sassafras Run and Standing Stone Creek is not stocked, but there are native brook trout. The stream below the dam is stocked in the spring. Wading is permitted in the lake and stream; swimming is not.

Thickhead Mountain Road, leading west from Penn Roosevelt State Park, is closed to motor vehicles and along with the connecting Detweiler Road, makes an excellent horseback trail.

Many hiking trails are on nearby state forest land. The Mid State Trail bisects the park and provides cross-country hiking. This 171-mile ridgetop route passes through diverse forested areas from newly regenerated forest stands to old growth timber areas. Scenic vistas dot the trail.

For more information on the Mid State Trail, contact the park office or visit the park Web site.
