“Perfect day at the park in the woods”

Caledonia State Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 21, 2017

We decided to take the kids to the park and play in the creek. The streams are 30 to 40 ft wide and shallow but clean water. Look for all kinds of cool things. Cook you burgers and hotdogs for lunch on the charcoal grill. There is a very large pool also.

Our family enjoyed a weekend of camping and hiking here. The campground was quiet, but perhaps in need of some maintenance. We hiked about 7 miles of the Appalachian trail on a perfect Saturday and we were amazed that it wasn't crowded. The children enjoyed playing in the stream near the picnic area. We found the park employees to be knowledgeable and friendly.

Stopped at the visitors office for help finding the Appalachian Trail. The ranger was very friendly and helpful. The park looked amazing for camping (we spent a day hiking here while staying in Gettysburg for a conference). There are lots of picnic tables, plenty of shade, and swings throughout. The park is well maintained. We hiked rambler, to 3 rivers, then awhile on the AT. There were a couple of challenging parts but overall, I'd recommend the park and the trails.

There is a lot more to this park than we experienced but of the small part we visited it was a pleasant visit. A lot of picnic tables and shade when it is hot. An outdoor water center/pool is available. Lots of history in the few buildings (usually open on weekends). The Appalachian Trail goes through this park.

We live locally and just discovered how wonderful the Caledonia pool is. Visited two days this week with different kids and everyone loved it. Took a picnic and set up on a picnic table outside of the pool area. We spent the day playing in the creek , having a picnic , playing in the pool and simply enjoying the beautiful weather in a beautiful Pennsylvania State Park. The kids loved the pool and the creek equally. The creek is easy to wade in with crystal clear water. The pool is professionally managed, very clean, and very safe - the lifeguards were very attentive. The pool is so large that even if it's crowded, you don't feel crowded. Caledonia is a great place for a family reunion or large group gathering. Definitely planning on buying a pass for next year.
