Codorus State Park

Codorus State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a big park with a big lake—the 1,275-acre Lake Marburg. Much of what goes on in the park centers around that water, which interestingly is owned by a local paper company that still uses the impoundment for its water supply. You can boat in your own craft—the campground has its own boat launch—or a rented one and scuba dive in one cove or fish for such species as muskies and tiger muskies, largemouth bass, northern pike, and panfish.

The park is also home to a special disc golf course. Rated one of the most challenging courses in Pennsylvania, it has hosted the state championship several times. The course features fifty-four holes with paved tees and winds through fields and forests. There’s even a mini disc golf course nearby for children."
