Always a wonderful place to visit.Pretty big state park but usually busy.Lots of people go for biking or to visit the falls. Nice hiking trails also .Very well kept park .The shops that reside beside it can be little pricey example the t-shirt hat combo we purchased at the park store is 5.00 more across the street and you'll pay 3.50 for just one scoop of ice cream. The campgrounds are little more woodsy in places but almost all are suitable for tents.

Ohiopyle State Park is a beautiful area in Southwestern Pennsylvania that offers opportunities for any number of outdoor activities. There are many hiking and biking trails as well as natural water slides and whitewater rafting and kayaking opportunities. The town itself has seen a lot of development in recent years with new outdoor adventure groups and tour companies springing up all the time. This is a great place for families and outdoor enthusiasts to spend an enjoyable weekend together.

Great day trip. The walk to Cucumber Falls was easy. Pretty place to take pictures. Since it was warm out a lot of people we're sunbathing on the rocks. We brought our dogs and they enjoyed it as well. Easy enough for kids to walk around. There's a few restaurants within walking distance.

Great place to camp,white water raft , or take a hike or walk. We've been coming here for years. Camping and Fort Necessity was fun with our daughters when they were young. Biking was even more of a blast. It's great for everyone. Of all ages. Enjoy!!!!

If you love the outdoors, this place is for you. Such a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is mountain living with a chill vibe. Feels like those awesome mountain towns out west. I would live here year round if I could. Fishing, camping, biking, white water, the list goes on. It is heaven.
