    Ricketts Glen State Park Campground Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Ricketts Glen is one of the most heavily visited parks in the northern tier of Pennsylvania—and for a number of good reasons.

    Located on the edge of the northern escarpment, the park’s beauty is astounding, especially its Glens Natural Area (a National Natural Landmark) with 22 named waterfalls ranging from 11 feet to the remarkable 94-foot Ganoga Falls. The park offers great hiking opportunities, as well as other water-related recreational activities."

    This is a really nice big park with some waterfalls, hiking trails and a lake. The hike to the falls isn't super easy but not overly difficult either. Wear good hiking shoes if you can or at least ones that can handle slippery rocks. The hike passes along the stream and past several waterfalls. It's never super crowded here either which is nice.

    Excellent campground! Clean well spaced campsites, with some views of lake. Clean well maintained bath house, with deep basin sink behind building for dish washing (a first for us). Paved roads, large beach close access to hiking trails. There were signs of a concession stand, but appeared to be closed due to construction, although there was no signage indicating closure. Overall a very good experience and we hope to return soon.

    Hiked the trail a couple days after a heavy rain. Definitely needed hiking shoes, as trails were very wet and pretty slippery. Lots of up and downs, but the trail is well-marked and clear. Views were worth any amount of effort! The falls, particularly Ganoga, absolutely awesome.
