“13,050 Acres of Awesomeness”
Ricketts Glen harbors Glens Natural Area, a National Natural Landmark. Take the Falls Trail and explore the Glens, which boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside. The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls. Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the scenic area. Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania. This large park is comprised of 13,050 acres in Luzerne, Sullivan and Columbia counties. Natural wetlands, old growth forests and majestic geological formations, which helped produce 22 beautiful waterfalls, make Ricketts Glen an excellent choice for outdoor studies. From March to November, the environmental education specialist conducts hands-on activities, guided walks and presentations on the natural and historical resources for school groups, scouts, civic organizations and the general public. Call in advance to set up a program that will enhance your classroom or group studies. Campers and visitors may check the bulletin boards and at the park office for listings of weekend programs and nature hikes.
Had a great time waterfalls were beautiful and mesmerizing. Great place for a day trip if you get a chance. I am definitely going there again.
The falls trail hike is absolutely gorgeous, as you hike next to 18 waterfalls. My husband used to camp and hike at this state park as a little boy and wanted to take me to experience it;'s beauty. I would hike this trail again, but maybe in the early fall or early summer when it isn't as busy. As for the campground, its all paved, even the sites. Which for tent camping is a drag. I would not stay at this campground again. Probably one of the worst campgrounds I have been to.
