There is a fire ring and picnic bench down near the creek, and a "lazy" swing to curl up with a favorite book, as you listen to the stream slowly gurgling by.

Little Pine Creek State Park is just a mile away with it's sand beach and other amenities.

The famed Pine Creek Rail to Trail is only 4 miles away, and the finest trout fishing east of the Rocky Mountains can be found in numerous streams within a half hour.   The cabin is centrally located with access to some of the finest hiking and biking trails in Pennsylvania, including:  The Golden Eagle trail, The Mid-State Trail, The Black Forest Trail, The Bob Weber Trail, and other smaller trails, too numerous to mention.   The park has a half dozen trails of varying difficulty, itself.

The DCNR area headquarters building with an outstanding visitors center is located only a short distance away.  Go to Waterville, turn right, and go 3/4 mile to the entrance driveway.
