Marsh Creek State Park is a massive, 1,727-acre park that hosts sailing, fishing, and several other seasonal activities. For guests looking to get into the water, Marsh Creek State Park has an ADA accessible public pool and splash zone. These facilities cost a small fee to enter and include a sunbathing area and snack bar in addition to the water areas.
A picnic pavilion inside of the pool grounds is available for advanced rental if you'd like to have a pool party. Sorry pet owners, but canines are prohibited from any of the poolside areas. For more information on renting the pavilion, give the Marsh Creek Swimming Pool Complex a call at 610-458-8535.
Marsh Creek State Park is ideal for mountain bike enthusiasts, with 11.5 total miles of trails to ride through and test your mettle. There are several loops available here, all of which are denoted with either orange, yellow, or blue blazes denoting difficulty. Park officials warn cyclists to take care during hunting season, as these areas often traverse grounds where wild game resides.
Make sure to wear bright colors and check posted hunting information during these fall and winter months to avoid any accidents. Canines aren't allowed on these cycling trails at any time. Marsh Creek State Park also caters to backpacking and hiking with almost 20 miles of trail network winding throughout the region. These paths are relatively flat and offer a few different habitats to wander through like forests, plains, and marshlands.
If you're looking to get out here with your dog, you'll need to keep them restrained throughout your walk. No doggie stations exist here, so it's wise to bring any materials needed to clean up after your canine. Fishers are in luck here, enjoying species like largemouth bass and panfish on the 535-acre Marsh Creek Lake.
Guests are reminded that the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission requires all guests looking to catch their dinner come with a state fishing license. Dogs are welcome to accompany fishermen (and women) throughout their stay, as long as they stay on a leash.
