Howard - 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.

What a beautiful find. We wanted a get away and landed here. (Pun intended). Very comfortable. I love the mission stole furniture. Prepare to hike while here!

It's a beautiful park, near a train tracks. We heard the train once, but the train pre-dates the park, so it is what it is. But the lake is breathtaking, the woods serene, the facilities clean, and the amenities wonderful. This was definitely a great weekend camping trip!

It's easy to love a park when you spend a day there in the glorious sunshine, looking across the lake at the fall colors and watching people firing pumpkins across the lake. Yes, I was here for the annual Punkin Chunkin. Even without the entertainment factor of watching pumpkins fired over the lake this is a nice place to be. It's big enough that it didn't feel crowded even having attracted the crowds to the event (which is usually very popular) so I can imagine the normal day-to-day usage of the park would leave you feeling like you've got however many acres it is more or less to yourself. And that's never a bad thing.

Nice place for a picnic. You can camp and swim my favorite is to camp on the wooded primitive side. Great fishing and a place to take your boat for a joy ride. Free admission.

A large park with many trails and an ample variety of wildlife. The Nature Inn is beautiful.
