Ryerson Station State Park is an 1164-ace landscape located on the southern edge of Pennsylvania. It hosts several summer recreational activities like swimming, fishing, and picnicking among its various options. There are 13 total miles of trails which populate Ryerson Station State Park.
These paths vary in intensity from paved and flat, all the way to challenging or difficult rocky climbs. Hiking these trails allow you to view the abundant and varied habitats that populate the park, including evergreen plantations and wet valley bottoms, among others.
While some of these paths present a real challenge, about 75% of them are wide and easy to follow. Color blazes are occasionally used, but aren't all that common and only denote the steep and treacherous paths. If you're going to bring a canine along, make sure they're kept on a leash throughout their stay, and you clean up any refuse they might leave on the trails.
Ryerson Station State Park's free public pool is a great way to beat the summertime heat. When built in 2004, designers made sure that every aspect was ADA accessible, so that guests of all ages and abilities would be allowed to enjoy this area. Lifeguard staff is on duty here during all operating hours.
Adjacent to the pool is a concession lounge, which serves hot and cold snacks via a third party vendor. Sorry dog owners, but canines are barred from entering any of the pool grounds. Overnight guests can enjoy a few different options. For traditional campers, there are 46 total sites available for reservation. These facilities are open year round and feature electrical hookups for an additional fee.
For guests who'd like a little more comfort for their stay, there are two camping cottages that can be reserved several months in advance. These buildings sleep five people each and feature modern amenities like electric lights & heat, a porch, and nearby shower houses. Canines aren't allowed in the cottages but can accompany guests on the outdoor portions of the traditional campgrounds.
