Little Pine State Park offers mountain vistas, beautiful shorelines, and several educational opportunities for both locals and out of town guests. A sandy beach lines Little Pine Lake, from which guests are free to enjoy the water throughout the warmer months. This is an entirely smoke-free beach, and guests are reminded to leave any glass or other breakable containers at home. Pets are unfortunately forbidden from enjoying the shoreline.
For fishers, Little Pine State Park's Little Pine Creek and Little Pine Lake both offer opportunities to catch your dinner. Due to the sheer diversity of the offerings here, Little Pine State Park can cater to fly, bank, and boat fishing depending on what guests are looking for. Visitors should check all posted signs, as individual portions of Little Pine Creek are regulated for specific types of lines and lures.
Make sure you've obtained a fishing license from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission before you try your luck. Canines are allowed to accompany guests on the shoreline as long as they're on a leash throughout their stay. Almost 11 total miles of trails wind their way through Little Pine State Park, many of which connect to Tiadaghton State Forest. For families, the elderly, and less able individuals there's the Button Ball Trail.
The Button Ball Trail is a half mile journey designed to present guests with an overview of the Little Pine State Park's offerings, and includes several informational plaques as well as being lined throughout with seasonal wildflowers. Panther Run is the park's largest stretch of fully contained trail, coming in at just under three miles.
Panther Run features several challenging pieces of rocky terrain, so make sure to come prepared if you're going to attempt it. Canines are allowed to accompany guests on these trails as long as they stay close to their owners throughout their stay. These paths are quite popular, so guests are reminded to clean up any messes their dogs might leave behind while hiking.
