Discover Black Moshannon State Park

Getting Outdoors

The number-one attraction in Black Moshannon State Park would have to be Black Moshannon Lake. This 250-acre lake, created by a dam on Black Moshannon Creek, is fed by springs and streams, and its famous tea-colored waters are a hive of activity during the warmer months.

If you'd like to take a boat out on the lake, there are four boat launching areas available as well as more than 85 mooring spaces. Electric motors only are allowed on the lake. If you don't have your own watercraft, boat rentals are available during summer.

Regardless of whether you take to a boat or decide to stay on dry land, it's worth remembering to bring a fishing rod. Several nearby streams offer rich pickings for trout anglers, while there's also an ADA-accessible fishing pier on the western side of the lake. Ice fishing is a popular pastime during the winter months, with yellow perch, pike, bluegill, largemouth bass, and more all caught here.

When the weather heats up, however, the lake is the perfect spot to cool off. Black Moshannon State Park has a sandy swimming beach for anyone who wants to get wet, while the beach area is also designed to provide easy access for people with disabilities.

But there's plenty more to see and do in Black Moshannon State Park away from the lake, headlined by the 20-mile trail network that winds its way through the park. For an easy family walk, tackle the boardwalk of the half-mile Bog Trail to check out the pretty wetland. If you're feeling a lot more energetic, the seven-mile Moss-Hanne Trail leads you through varied local terrain — if you're walking it between June and August, you might even find some fresh blueberries along the way.

Camping at Black Moshannon State Park

If you'd like to go RV camping in Black Moshannon State Park, rent an RV in Centre County and then reserve a spot in the park's 73-site campground. Most sites in the campground are level, receive a decent amount of shade during the summer months, and can accommodate either RVs or tents.

Among these 73 sites, there are 12 full-hookup sites and 44 electrical sites. Clean restrooms with flushing toilets and showers are provided. Other amenities include coin-operated laundry facilities and an RV dump station.

If you want to camp at Black Moshannon State Park with your dog, the good news is that pets are permitted on designated sites. Make sure you choose a pet-friendly site when making a reservation, and remember to keep your dog on a leash and clean up after them at all times.

Finally, if you're traveling with friends and family who don't want to camp in an RV, they can make use of the park's cottages and cabins.
