3. French Creek State Park

Year round, French Creek State Park keeps visitors busy with a wide range of park activities. In the winter months, you can go ice skating, sledding, ice fishing, and even cross-country skiing. If you plant to visit during spring, summer, or fall, you may be able to take advantage of hiking trails, fishing, boating, swimming, horseback riding, and more.

4. Erie Bluffs State Park

Looking to travel west? Consider a stop at the beautiful Erie Bluffs State Park, located right along scenic Lake Erie. This day-use park isn’t huge, but you can enjoy one mile of shoreline as well as hiking, fishing, geocaching, boating, and more. Note that the shore is fairly rugged, so swimming is not permitted within the park.
