Codorus State Park is quite large, coming in at 3,500-acres. This diverse landscape offers several opportunities for fun, with everything from disc golfing to ice skating. Hiking is a typical past time in Codorus State Park, with over 19 miles worth of trails to explore. Two trails, the Mary Ann Furnace and the Laho are hiking specific.
You can wander these paths without worrying about meeting a pack of cyclists or an individual on horseback. These trails vary in difficulty, which is why its wise to download a copy of the trail map available on the Pennsylvania DNR website before visiting. Canines are welcome on these trails, provided they remain on a 6-foot leash or shorter.
No doggie stations exist, so make sure you bring the necessary supplies to clean up after your canine companion! Codorus State Park contains Lake Marburg, a vast 1,275-acre body of water that hosts boating and fishing throughout the year. There are seven different boat launch ramps for public use, all of which are regularly maintained by park staff.
There's also a campground-specific boat launch that's only available for registered campers. Boat registration is a must in these waters, both for powered and non-powered watercraft. For information on how to acquire a launch permit from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, please visit the Pennsylvania DNR website.
Canines are prohibited from any indoor launch areas, as well as the campground's launch ramp. The campgrounds here were recently renovated and now offer full electric and water hookups. 190 total sites are peppered throughout the park, and all of these sites are within walking distance to shower and restroom facilities.
Additionally, three camping cottages exist that can sleep up to five individuals. These sites all tend to fill up often, so make sure to reserve your spot as soon as you can. Canines are allowed on all of the tent camping grounds provided they are leashed but are prohibited from any indoor structures.
