Description

Leonard Harrison State Park is a 585-acre piece of land boasting recently updated facilities, as well as a newly built visitor's center. For hikers, Leonard Harrison State Park has 4.6 miles of total trails to enjoy. These paths offer views of waterfalls and forested vistas but are forewarned that all of the hiking here is done on natural trails that provide a high level of difficulty. 

Visitors should only attempt these runs if they're in solid physical condition and have come with the prerequisites such as proper hiking boots and additional water sources. Park officials warn that weather is fickle on these outside passes, so having a compass and a fully charged cellular phone is a must in times of distress. 

Canines are allowed to accompany guests on the hiking trails as long as they're on a leash six feet or shorter in length. Although these are unpaved trails, guests are still responsible for cleaning up any waste that their dogs might leave behind. For would-be anglers, Leonard Harrison State Park contains Pine Creek. This small body of water offers seasonal fishing for trout, smallmouth bass, and panfish among others. 

Leonard Harrison also contains several other creeks and streams that offer trout fishing as well. These additional fishing spots can be found by walking the Turkey Path Trail to the north. All fishers should have a license from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission as well as all necessary equipment before their visit. 

If guests would like their dogs to accompany them on their fishing excursions, they'll need to keep them on a leash throughout their stay. If you'd like to stay overnight, there are over 70 sites available to choose from. These sites all come standard with a fire pit, picnic table, flush toilet, and a dump station for those visiting with an RV. Canines are welcome on these campsites provided they stay restrained throughout their visit.
