Covering 780 acres, Worlds End State Park is arguably one of the most scenic parks in Pennsylvania, located in the Loyalsock State Forest. Although largely rural, this civilization favorite can be reached with ease from nearby towns such as Mansfield, Williamsport, and Scranton.
Worlds End State Park offers plenty of things for visitors to do, such as fishing, swimming, hiking, biking, camping, rafting, wildlife watching, and more, so much that people regularly rent an RV in Sullivan County to really make use of all that it has to offer. Its name has been used since 1872, but still, its origins are uncertain.
The land was once used by Native Americans, and since then has had a number of uses and has undergone a range of changes. Today the area is largely untamed and wild, and this has inspired artists and photographers from all over the world. Birds and animals are abundant, as are fish that swim in the Loyalsock Creek that runs through the park.
World's End State Park is arguably best known for its exciting hiking possibilities, with over 20 miles of trails to explore. Many of the trails should only be tackled by the more experienced hiker as they are pretty rocky and steep and can become very icy in the winter months. One of the most popular trails here is the Canyon Vista Trail, and as the name suggests, rewards hikers with incredible views over the Loyalsock Creek Gorge. Double Run Nature Trail is one of the easiest, at 1.2 miles long; it loops through the woodland, offering glimpses of wildflower and waterfalls.
The Lotalsock Creek bubbles its way through the park, offering opportunities for white-water rafting. It is a favorite for more experienced paddlers as the water has been known to be temperamental, especially when the weather is not so good. The best time for white-water rafting is from March to May, and every spring, the park plays host to an exciting slalom race, which draws both paddlers and spectators from miles around to go RV camping at World’s End State Park. The white-water gradient here is 41, and the water is often too quick for open canoes, so kayaks are the chosen vessel. A swimming area opens in the summer months, and during this time, this section is closed to rafters.
Nature enthusiasts who are motorhome camping head to the park year after year for a spot of bird watching and nature viewing. A huge range of species calls the park their home, such as groundhogs and white-tailed deer. If you are exceptionally lucky, you may even be able to spot the odd bear or bobcat. Just be aware that hunting is allowed in the park, so always make yourself visible in an orange vest when trying to spot wildlife. The park forms part of a globally important habitat for bird conservation, and there are over 200 species that either lives in the park or stop there as part of a migration route. Flycatchers, herons, warbler, owl, grouse, and northern goshawk are all species you may be able to spot.
World's End State Park can cater 70 tents or trailers in its state park RV campgrounds, some of which come with electricity hookups. There is a central shower and bathroom facilities that all sites have easy access to. The sites are reservable and are set into the woodlands, with the trees providing both shade and partial privacy. They all have a fire ring, grill, and picnic table, so cooking and eating outside is no problem. The sites all vary in size, so always check which you are booking before making a reservation to go camping with an RV.
There are many other campground options in the immediate area, such as Grassmere Campground. This campground also has 70 wooded sites, this time with full hookups. There are also additional features such as a 3-acre activity field, games room, sports courts, video games, fishing, ice, and a camp store.
