Comprised of 220-acres of pristine wilderness, Reeds Gap State Park is an area rich in local history. Due to the excellent cross-country skiing found here, it's a favorite spot for winter sports enthusiasts. Fans of fishing will love the healthy populations found inside of Honey Creek.
Both native species of trout and stocked varieties can be found here. Many guests enjoy hiking out to the more remote parts of this location for a bit of reflection while they drop their lines. The park suggests the spring seasons as the best time of year for fishing in Reeds Gap State Park.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission requires all would-be anglers to possess an up to date license as well as stamps for the stocked trout before getting your rod and hitting the creek's mellow waters. No rental services exist, so make sure you've packed all the necessary items before departing for your trip.
If you're bringing your dog along for this particular journey, make sure they're well behaved and kept on a leash throughout the day. Guests of Reeds Gap State Park can stretch their legs on 3 miles of trails, some of which connect to trails in the neighboring Bald Eagle State Forest.
A few of these trails at the Reeds Gap State Park follow the path of the old sawmill workers who would bring lumber down the mountain. Visitors who decide to brave these challenging ascents will get to witness several rock formations, and a small tucked away pond.
You can find these features by following the Reeds Gap Spur trail or the section of the Mid State Trail that travels through the park. Most of these trails are natural and unpaved, so guests are encouraged to dress appropriately in good boots and quality clothing. Dogs are welcome on the trails here, provided guests clean up any messes they might leave behind.
A 14-site campground was built here in the early 1990s and features water hookups and a shower house that's free for guests. All structures here were designed to be ADA accessible, so less able guests should have no trouble enjoying the amenities offered. Dogs are welcome on the campground as long as they're restrained but are forbidden from entering any indoor structures.
