When you plan a vacation, what are the deciding factors that go into choosing where you visit? If it’s unwinding from chaos and overstimulation, you’re in good company. Personally, I’m an avid fan of visiting State and National Parks. They’re some of my favorite natural resources to explore and enjoy, and my soul is energized from disconnecting from the craziness of life and spending some much-needed time in nature. When I first found out about Cherry Springs State Park I knew I wanted to immediately put it next on my list of State Parks to visit!
A “Dark Sky Park”
What makes Cherry Springs State Park unique and one of the best State Parks in Pennsylvania? It’s the first “Dark Sky Park” named by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. While most National and State Parks have plenty for you to do and explore during the day – and Cherry Springs State Park is no exception – the real treat is what happens in the evening.
Due to the exceptionally dark skies, you’ll find some of the best views of the night sky. Whether you plan to set up your camera for some unforgettable nighttime shots or just sit and take it all in, you’ll leave with a profound sense of wonder and amazement as you see the Milky Way, planets, stars, and astronomical phenomena that are usually hard to see.
The Peace and Quiet You’re Longing For
Summer vacations are often about how much excitement and fun you can pack into a day, but there’s nothing like a vast, dark night sky to fill you with peace and calm. Every day we find ourselves under a barrage of noise and stimulation. What if you could disconnect from the chaos and reconnect quietly with your place in the universe?
Hiking, Backpacking, and More
Cherry Springs State Park also features a campground, so after an evening spent stargazing, you can head back to your new or used RV and sleep in the next morning. Make some plans to get in some hiking or other offerings at Cherry Springs after you enjoy a late brunch cooked on the outdoor kitchen of your RV.
Cherry Springs State Park is an 82-acre state park and it’s surrounded by the Susquehannock State Forest. Nearby, you’ll find the Susquehannock Trail, which gives you 85 miles of hiking and backpacking opportunities.
