Located between Norristown and Collegeville in southcentral Pennsylvania, Evansburg State Park contains a beautiful little green space for quiet walks and reflection in an otherwise urban location. This excellent piece of scenery includes Skippack Creek, which provides enough diversity in the landscape to help remove yourself from the hustle and bustle.
Evansburg State Park was originally settled by Mennonite farmers, who used the rivers that fill Skippack Creek to power their mills and other simple machinery of the time. When visiting Evansburg State Park, make sure to check out the still-existent mill buildings, houses, and remnants that still populate this gorgeous state park. As tours are regularly given in these preserved structures, canines are prohibited from accompanying you as you explore them.
Golf is a very integral part of what bring visitors into Evansburg State Park. Skippack Golf Course is a full service, 18-hole course that provides a picturesque location to engage in your favorite past time. These grounds include a clubhouse and public restrooms and are available to the public as long as weather permits. Canines are unfortunately not allowed to follow you through your game, nor are they allowed to enter the clubhouse.
Are you looking to camp out for the evening? Eighteen campsites are open for you to rent out up to three months in advance. These sites have flush toilets, picnic tables, and firepits to make your stay a little more comfortable. If you are looking to keep your dog with you for your overnight stay, make sure they stay leashed up and away from public structures.
For the hikers out there, six miles of paved and crushed gravel trails are open to you. Most of these provide a very moderate experience, without any challenging sections. If you'd rather not leave your dog behind, make sure that their leash is no longer than six feet. Park officials would also like to remind guests that they are required to clean up and business that their dogs might leave behind. Garbage cans can be found at every trail entrance.
