The 407-acre Hills Creek State Park is nestled in the heart of the scenic landscape of Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Known for the osprey and loon populations that seasonally inhabit the area, this park is an excellent place for nature spotting and fishing. Overnight guests will have a field day in Hills Creek State Park, with 85 campsites to choose from.
The campgrounds are located at the northern side of the park and are accessible by the park's main road. These campsites reside in several different areas, so you can take your pick from grasslands, forested areas, or waterfront views. Most of the sites here come with water, sewage, and electrical hookups in case you've come in a recreational vehicle or tow camper.
Guests are free to use the public showers and restroom facilities immediately adjacent to these grounds, as long as they're staying for the evening. If you'd like to bring your canine along, they're free to accompany you on the grounds provided they stay restrained.
Canines aren't allowed in any of the indoor structures. The 137-acre Hills Creek Lake offers great fishing opportunities for a few different warm water species including muskellunge, carp, bullhead catfish, and walleye. An ADA-accessible concrete pier exists for fishing here as well, to eliminate any difficulties for the less abled or the elderly.
Canines are allowed on the pier provided they stay on a leash no longer than six feet. Hills Creek State Park also hosts swimming, with a half-mile stretch of beach offering great recreational opportunities. There's a set of showers and a concession stand that are open seasonally if you need a midday snack, or just a chance to get rinsed off.
Boats are allowed on the water as well, so guests enjoying the water should stay vigilant to avoid any accidents. Canines can enjoy the shoreline and beach leash free, provided guests clean up any messes left behind. Park visitors with pets are required to have them up to date on all vaccinations, as well as possessing proper registration.
