State Park Advisories

General Firewood Quarantine: Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order for untreated firewood of any kind coming into the state. Any firewood brought into the state must be kiln dried, heat treated, fumigated, and/or USDA Certified.

To protect the high quality and native character of our State Parks from exotic invasive species DCNR highly encourages all visitors to:

  • burn/buy locally cut firewood (within 25 miles)

  • BURN ALL firewood brought from another area. Do not leave it. Do not take it with you.

  • Encourage friends and neighbors not to move firewood.

  • Do not remove firewood from a Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Area. Contact the PA Department of Agriculture, www.agriculture.pa.gov and search on the keyword Spotted Lantern Fly for current quarantine information.

Drone Restrictions: To protect park resources, limit conflict with other park users, and avoid safety and privacy liabilities, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), remotely piloted vehicles (RPV) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), all commonly referred to as DRONES, are only permitted on designated flying fields in six remote controlled airfield parks (Beltsville, Benjamin Rush, Hillman, Lackawanna, Prompton, and Tuscarora). The use of drones or other UAS is restricted at all other Bureau of State Parks locations.

Delaware Canal Towpath Maintenance Alert 5/25/2022 – In the area between southern New Hope and Washington Crossing (MM 23.6 to MM 19.1), various damage has occurred to the towpath in numerous sections due to weather events and general wear and tear to the trail.  The Park is aware of these issues regarding the towpath surface and is in the process of repairs.  Use extreme caution in this section when traversing it, or attempt to avoid it completely.  We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

If you plan to use the towpath be sure to use extreme caution due to damages sustained from Hurricane Ida. It is highly advised that visitors be cautious in the section of towpath between Easton (MP 58.89) and Point Pleasant, Lock 14 (MP 32.3). The towpath is closed in the area of Upper Black Eddy (MP 43) due to a bank collapse and washout to the river. Heed all signs for road and towpath closures.

The purpose of this closure is for PUBLIC SAFETY and will be in effect until the crossing can be made safe. Trail users should turn around at the closure and NOT attempt to get by it.

Water sampling results have confirmed that there are cyanobacteria toxins present in enough quantities over a wide extent of the lake to potentially cause health effects if people and animals come in contact with lake water through swimming in or drinking untreated water. These results may not reflect current conditions. Conditions can change so that cyanobacteria toxins may be present in all or parts of the lake.

Due to an active black bear population, the park is requiring all visitors to take certain precautions while exploring the park or staying in the campgrounds. Bear are generally not dangerous to people if they are left alone, however, as with all wild animals their behavior is unpredictable. All visitors, especially overnight guests, shall abide by the following: NEVER approach a bear to pet, feed, or photograph it. ALL food and scented items must be stored in locked vehicles. If a bear approaches you, NEVER throw food or other objects; they can act as an attractant rather than a deterrent. Do not run from a bear; stay together as a group, clap your hands and shout loudly while backing away slowly.
