Susquehannock State Park

Susquehannock State Park Professional Review and Guide

"The park overlooks the Lower Susquehanna River in southern Lancaster County. There are just 5 miles of hiking within this 224-acre park, but the Bureau of Parks includes this tiny park on its list of the best-kept secrets of the Pennsylvania State Park System. Highlights include panoramic, cliff-side views of the Susquehanna River and an optional visit to the Lock No. 12 Historic Area.

Susquehannock State Park is small and a million miles from nowhere, but it’s well worth a visit to do this hike, especially in mid-June to early July, when the rhododendron is in bloom. This hike takes you through miles of rhododendron, alongside a bubbling mountain stream, and out onto cliff -side viewing platforms that rise 380 feet above the Susquehanna River as it makes its way from Pennsylvania into Maryland."
