Weekend Getaways : Black Moshannon State Park

Black Moshannon State Park- Just a 27 minute drive from State College, PA is a 3,480 Acre Pennsylvania State Park in Centre County. Black moshannon forest and wetlands provide recreational opportunities for all visitors!

Wondering how Black Moshannon got it's name? The "black" in the park name describes the tea-colored waters. The 250-acre Black Moshannon Lake is fed by clear springs and small streams which flow through the bogs that stretch in most directions from its shores. As the clear water flows through the moss and other wetland plants, it becomes colored by plant tannins.


Exploring Our Outdoors: Rothrock State Forest

Outdoor activities are plentiful in the region, thanks in part to public land like Rothrock State Forest.

Located just minutes from State College and Penn State University, this 215,000-acre tract of mountainous terrain in Centre, Mifflin and Huntingdon counties offers hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and much more.

Founded in the early 20th century by neighboring Mifflin County native Dr. Joseph Rothrock, the forest was initially barren due to excessive logging and resource extraction. Concerned that the barren ridges would not regrow without proper management, Rothrock took action in 1895 when he was appointed the first commissioner of what’s today known as the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. This was the beginning...

Weekend Getaways: Allegheny National Forest and beyond

Just over two hours from State College and Penn State University is the Allegheny National Forest, an outdoor lover's paradise. 

Covering approximately 517,000 square acres, the forest lies in the heart of Pennsylvania’s oil and gas region and is the only National Forest located within the state.

Early settlers cleared the land for agriculture, but the lumber industry soon followed. Deforestation caused wildfires and floods, and by 1900 most wildlife was eliminated due to overhunting.

The Forest Service began managing the land that is now the Allegheny National Forest in 1923, and things began to change for the better.

Today, forests have regrown and animal populations have rebounded. The forest — which includes the Allegheny Reservoir — is...

Weekend Getaways: Harrisburg & beyond

Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania, sits on the Susquehanna River about a 1.5-hour drive from State College and Penn State University.

This small city (pop. 49,528 city/574,659 metro) is the perfect weekend getaway, offering a variety of nightlife, cultural attractions and more, ideal for couples or the whole family.

Additional recreational pursuits can be found on the island, including miniature golf, arcade games, batting cages and a city beach.

Weekend Getaways: Gettysburg and Adams County

Adams County, Pennsylvania, has something for everyone: From national historic sites to wineries and antiques, it’s easy to spend a weekend getting lost in the area’s history and culture.

Located just two hours from Penn State's main campus and best known as the home of the Battle of Gettysburg, over 23,000 soldiers perished here in the largest conflict ever fought in the Western Hemisphere. This monumental battle site is memorialized throughout the Gettysburg National Military Park, which protects and interprets the 1863 battlegrounds.
