Having heard the park was on the 2010 closure list due to the budget shortfall, we were relieved and thrilled to see it survive.
My family and I spent the the 4th of July 2009 weekend at Col Denning State Park (CDSP) and had a wonderful time. There are several things we particularly enjoyed: the peace and quiet of the reservable walk-in tent campsites; the ranger orienteering program; the well-maintained and scenic hiking trails; the friendly volunteer campground hosts who sold ice/firewood; the clean vault toilets and the swimming beach.
We have travelled to six states and the US Virgin Islands to tent camp. Little CDSP remains one of our favorite spots. Thank you Pennsylvania for keeping it open. We can not wait to return this year.
