Sizerville State Park is a picturesque park in Pennsylvania's Cameron and Potter Counties. Surrounded by Elk State Forest, this 386-acre park boasts a campground, picnic areas, and an extensive range of recreational and natural opportunities.
The park is open every day of the year and offers something for everyone - no matter what month you visit. Visitors during the warmer months love swimming in the free, 105 foot-long concrete pool, or letting their kids loose in the adjacent wading pool. Two picnic areas boast a total of six pavilions and more than 100 picnic tables, making the park the paw-fect spot to stop for a bite to eat.
Anglers can target brook and brown trout in Cowley Run, or try their luck getting a bite or two in the nearby Portage and Driftwood branches of the Sinnemahoning Creek. There are five miles of hiking trails to explore on foot, while the park is also open for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in colder weather.
Sizerville State Park's 28-site campground opens on the second Friday in April and closes in mid-December. Flush toilets and showers are available, and 18 campsites feature electricity. Pets are only allowed on designated campsites for a fee, so make sure you choose a pet-friendly site when you make a reservation.
You'll also need to make sure you're a responsible dog owner and that you look after your pooch during your stay. This means you'll need to keep your pet on a leash no longer than si feet, and ensure that your dog is never left unattended. Cleaning up after your pet and responsibly disposing of their waste is also essential.
Sizerville State Park provides a beautiful natural escape about 150 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. If you're looking for a dog-friendly campground where you can enjoy a weekend (or longer) with your furry friend, make sure you check it out.
