Ohiopyle State Park
Located at the southern reaches of the Laurel Ridge, Ohiopyle State Park encompasses approximately 20,500 acres of rugged natural beauty and serves as the gateway to the Laurel Highlands. Close to major metropolitan areas and offering vast choices of activities, Ohiopyle State Park attracts millions of visitors annually.
Passing through the heart of the park, the rushing waters of the Youghiogheny [yawki-gay-nee] River Gorge are the centerpiece for Ohiopyle. The "Yough" [yawk] provides some of the best whitewater boating in the eastern United States, as well as spectacular scenery.
Ohiopyle is the southern gateway into the Laurel Highlands and represents the beautiful natural resources and unique sense of community that visitors can find throughout the region.
Absolutely amazing. Had such a great time exploring, camping, swimming, and tons more. The walled cabin we stayed in had bunk beds. It didn't say that anywhere on the site but it was a great perk. This park is so well maintained. The bathrooms were very clean, with hot water, and nothing scary . The grounds were spotless and beautiful. Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful state park! Plenty of fun with swimming at cucumber falls, rafting, bicycling, and hiking! Staff at welcome center was very friendly and helpful. Great little town with restaurants and shops. Falls were beautiful, water was clear, and everything was well maintained. Highly recommend cucumber falls picnic area for a great secluded spot away from the sometimes busy falls to hang out, eat, and play in the creak!
I have always enjoyed coming here. Summertime here is the best, I take my dog jogging on the trails whenever I can. Lots of plant and animal life all around. There is biking, rafting, kayaking available, Many waterfalls, the natural waterslides, a few shops to visit, places to eat. I definitely recommend Falls city Pub for drinks and food. All in all a very nice place to visit, also The house "Falling Water" is less than ten minutes away.
This is one of my favorite places to go to be with nature, that is an easy day trip. The little town is great place to eat and stroll around too. Waterfalls, hiking, biking,eating, people watching. Fun fun fun! And such a beautiful area!
The family loves this park. There are many hiking trails. You can rent bikes, kayaks, river rafts. There is a fun zip line activity course. Many people enjoy the river side sunning or swimming. You can learn about the area in one of two visitors centers. There is a natural water slide and a few waterfalls. This is a wonderful area to enjoy outdoors.
