“a National Natural Landmark”
The 15,990-acre Hickory Run State Park, Carbon County, lies in the western foothills of the Pocono Mountains. This large park has over 40 miles of hiking trails, three state park natural areas and miles of trout streams. Boulder Field, a striking boulder-strewn area, is a National Natural Landmark.
The state park is a vast forest that has a lot of things for everyone. Many hiking trails and room to explore. I only had interaction with the gate attendant and he was a kind young man that had plenty of information available. Did not really see the camp host though I know they were there. The RV grounds are very spacious and easy to get into. The power is steady and true at the post. A large field in the middle of the campground offers a lot of space for playing games and there is a swing set for the kiddos. Bathroom is a traditional campground rustic hole in the ground. Was well maintained though and did not need any further attention.
Wild animals are very abundant even in the camping area. We saw several turkey and a doe walking around freely. There has been warnings of black bears in the area but we did not see any nor a sign of one. Doesn't mean they are not out there so be smart people!
There is a town not to far away that gives access to local flavor and shopping for necessities. All in all it was a nice place to pass through.
Hickory Run State Park includes almost 16,000 acres and is located in the western foothills of the Pocono Mountains. The Park is very popular and has a wide variety of outdoor recreation including 40 miles of hiking trails, 3 natural areas, great fishing in numerous trout streams, swimming, hunting, disc golf, winter sports, a large campground and of course the famous Bolder Field.
