State Park Alerts

Kooser State Park is preparing to begin a large scale lake rehabilitation project to remove sediment from the lake bottom and to improve the shoreline, fishing access and fish habitat. When this project begins, it will impact the day use area immediately surrounding the lake, and at times may require closures of certain adjacent areas and parking lots. The timing and duration of this project is uncertain at this time, as are the associated closures to the parking areas in the lake day use area. Customers who plan to reserve the Mighty Oak Pavilion should be aware that parking and access to the pavilion may only be available from the areas near the park office, as the parking area adjacent to the lake and PA Rt. 31 may be impacted beginning in September 2017. Please check the park advisories page for updates to this project.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
