Chapman State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This park has 3 cottages and 2 yurts for rent and an organized group tenting area. This is a relatively small park with a big feel. It’s only about 800 acres but is situated next to the 500,000-plus-acre Allegheny National Forest and some other public ground, so it’s a bit of a tucked-away gem. It’s also another site that’s great for families and children.
The relatively large sandy beach was redone just a few years ago, so it’s clean and pretty, and a large concession stand on the edge will help you keep the kids fed. There are grassy areas for playing games, a playground, and, adjacent to the beach, a boat rental where you can rent a canoe or kayak. There’s a fishing pier nearby and lots of shore access, so you can do a lot of exploring too."
