Bald Eagle State Park

149 Main Park Road

The 5,900-acre Bald Eagle State Park is in the broad Bald Eagle Valley of northcentral Pennsylvania. The 1,730-acre lake laps the flanks of Bald Eagle Mountain, surrounded by forests, fields and wetlands. With two campgrounds, boating, fishing, swimming, the Nature Inn, and diverse habitats that are excellent for wildlife watching, Bald Eagle State Park is a great destination in the heart of Pennsylvania.

Recreational facilities are a result of a cooperative effort between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources-Bureau of State Parks.

Lake is great. Campground is more open layout, not a tree covered area; so you will easily see your neighbors. Restrooms were spotless, plenty of hot water. The loop I was on had two cabins and two Yurts, they looked great. This park has a hotel on site, great views of the lake. Hotel is NOT open to non guests for anything. Because the park is near Bellfonte and State College, rain days were still worthwhile; we simply explored the two towns. June 2018, the park office is being renovated. FYI.

Multiple boat launches, a beach area for swimming and picnicking. Several hiking trails. Modern campsites aren't the shadiest. Multiple dog friendly sites. One of the more popular parks, usually completely packed in the midst of summer.

The beach area is large and well taken care of, they have jet ski, kayak, canoe, and bike rental. 1 of my favorite places for family fun. Some picture I took from the walking bridge located in the sycamore loop camping area

They have a very nice place to swim, the water is not to cold. Bathroom and changing area right there. We where also able to cookout at the beach area. They have a beautiful hotel there. My husband and I may stay there for a night or two this fall.

We go to this nice park often. Great place to walk, fish, boat or swim at the beach. We go here every year on Easter Sunday after dinner and hang out. Even on these out of season trips there is much to do.
