Susquehannock State Park is a park with remarkable views of the Lower Susquehanna River and can be seen and explored from four different locations in the park. The four properties are Pinnacle Overlook, Urey Overlook, Hawk Point Overlook, and Wisslers Run Overlook.
Each location has a unique view of the river and gives you a chance to enjoy the breathtaking views. At the park, you can try hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, camping, cross-country skiing (in the winter months), or simply grab your binoculars and watch some wildlife. If you venture to an overlook, you might even see a hawk or even a bald eagle.
If you want to go hiking while at Susquehannock State Park, the trails are relatively short, ranging from half a mile to a little over a mile, and the terrain is rated from easy to very difficult. Depending on the season, you'll see all different plants and wildlife on these trails. If you strap on your hiking boots and take Fido for a hike with you, be sure to pack both of you plenty of water and the doggie-poop bags so you can pick up after Fido.
You can get your grill on at this park and there's plenty of space-80 picnicking sites and 20 grills. There are also pavilions with electricity you can reserve in advance. Near the picnicking sites, you'll find volleyball courts, playgrounds, horseshoe pits, water fountains, and softball fields.
When you're exploring the park with Fido, make sure you follow the rules for dogs. Some places your pup cannot explore are swimming areas, buildings, or non-pet overnight areas. At all times, your pooch must be on a leash no longer than six feet, and Fido cannot be left alone. Your dog must also be healthy, non-aggressive, and respond to your command.
Also, make sure when Fido is exploring wildlife, your dog merely looks but does not touch. Do no encourage digging, chasing of native critters, or excessive barking. Each property of the park has a different address, so decide which part you want to visit and find the address on the official website to make sure you get to the right place.
Please note, the address listed will take you to the park office, Hawk Pointe, and Wisslers Run Overlook. There are no entrance fees for daily use in any Pennsylvania State Park, but if you wish to camp or do another activity, like rent a pavilion, consult the website for fees and rates.
