Beltzville State Park Professional Review and Guide

"You enter the forest on a pleasant, mowed path that leads you to a ravine alongside a stream. From there the trail leads you to the Wild Creek Falls area, where you can swim, eat your lunch on the flat boulders, or just watch as children splash about in the shallow water. The trail follows above Wild Creek as the stream makes its way to Beltzville Lake, where you get a view of the lake.

Beltzville State Park comprises 2,972 acres that stretch along both sides of 949-acre Beltsville Lake, which sits on a southwest to northeast axis with the dam on the very southwestern tip. There are trails by the dam and on the southern side of the lake. Our hike is located in the northeastern section of the park and connects a number of short trails. (You can pick up a copy of the park map and hiking trails brochure at the park office, located near the dam.)"
