      Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United States of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City.

      The forests, lakes, wetlands, and fields are a destination for the people of southeast Pennsylvania to hike, fish, camp, and bike.

      Those same habitats are homes to many animals and plants that are rare in this corner of the Commonwealth. French Creek State Park is an important bird area as designated by the National Audubon Society, and an important mammal area as designated by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

      Seasons and Hours
      The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk.
