State Park Advisories

Contrary to some information found online, there is no fee to enter Point State Park, which is open from sunrise until 11 pm daily. Point is a day-use only park and has no swimming or camping facilities.

The accessible kayak launch at Point's Allegheny Wharf has been reinstalled for the 2017 season. We expect it to remain in the water and available for use until mid-October. Please check our website and our Facebook page for updates as the season draws to a close, as removal of the launch can be affected by many different factors. For additional information on paddling on Pennsylvania's waterways, please check the PA Fish and Boat Commissions website for water safety awareness, life vest guidelines, and other important river-related information. 

Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.
