Parks & Recreation
Looking to do some serious social distancing? Our area offers outdoor enthusiasts plenty of opportunities to explore. Reeds Gap State Park, shown above, is a cool haven custom-made for warm, summer days, and it is the perfect place for a family picnic. Grab a basket, some provisions and pick a spot along the clear mountain stream which cuts its path through a grove of soaring hemlock trees. The park features camping and all the essentials for a fun afternoon or weekend in the forest.
Several full-service campgrounds with excellent facilities are located right on the Juniata River and great community parks in the area offer a host of primitive camping options. Public lands make enjoying the great outdoors easy. In fact, one of every five acres here is dedicated to outdoor recreation.
