Susquehanna State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A major draw for Susquehanna State Park is fishing. Striped, smallmouth, and largemouth bass are abundant. Anglers also catch channel catfish, carp, alewife, pike, and perch. What this means is that folks camping are often up and out early, especially in springtime, during the annual herring and shad runs. If that’s your primary motivation too, don’t worry.
The river is large, and a prime spot can easily be claimed. If your motivation for visiting Susquehanna State Park is hiking, be thrilled. The trails, more than 15 miles worth in all, can be surprisingly empty. One of them heads to the Conowingo Dam, a prime spot for birding. There’s also much here in the way of historical attractions: the Rock Run Historic Area includes the still-operational Rock Run Grist Mill (1794), as well as the Rock Run Mansion (1804)."
