Discover Codorus State Park

Getting Outdoors

With 1275 acres of water and 26 miles of shoreline to discover, Lake Marburg is the centerpiece of Codorus State Park. The lake is a dream come true for anglers, with the chance to reel in bluegill, catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, northern pike, yellow perch and a handful of other species. Fish off the shoreline or launch a boat at one of the seven ramps.

There's no swimming in the lake but you can cool off in the public pool, which is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It's perched on a bluff and boasts spectacular views over Lake Marburg and the distant hills. Bring your own picnic or stock up on snacks at the concession.

Kayaking is a great way to enjoy the lake, with rentals available from AOS Marina. Explore the lake independently or join a guided tour run by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Keep an eye out for turtles, eagles, osprey, waterfowl and other wildlife.

If you feel like stretching your legs the 3.5-mile Mary Ann Furnace Trail winds through the Black Rock Flats wetlands, then climbs through a lush deciduous forest. Take the left fork to skirt the lake shoreline and the right fork to ascend to a hilltop with sweeping views over the campground. On the north shore of the park, a designated 195-acre mountain biking zone attracts legions of adrenalin junkies.
