WHIPPLE DAM STATE PARK

Surrounded by Rothrock State Forest in the northeast corner of Huntingdon County, this 256-acre state park is a delightful place for your next outing. Its 22-acre lake provides recreational opportunities such as swimming on a sand beach, boating (row or electric motors only), fishing (including ice fishing), bird watching or just plain relaxing. Three large picnic pavilions and many picnic tables are in a forest-covered area, close to the beach, and lake. Hand operated and pressurized drinking fountains, charcoal stoves and restrooms are throughout the park. The three picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Unreserved picnic pavilions are free on a first-come, first-served basis.
