Whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, the natural beauty of the Susquehanna River Valley is sure to inspire you to take in the great outdoors. The Susquehanna River Valley is  home to the majestic Susquehanna River. We are also surrounded by state parks, scenic country roads, abundant fishing streams and year-round recreational opportunities.

The region also offers a number of land and water trails. Take some time to explore DCNR's  interactive website, which features more than 5,700 miles of trails throughout the Commonwealth. Want to kayak, camp, bike, or cross-country ski locally but don't know where to start? Go to Get Outdoors PA and learn more about what our area has to offer.

Did you know that PA's State Parks are the best in the country? They are! Our 117-state park system received the 2009 Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. Watch a video created by PA DCNR highlighting our state parks.

There’s truly something here for everyone – whether you like to hike, bike, fish, canoe, golf, watch wildlife, or take a leisurely stroll through a park with friends and family – it’s all right here for you to enjoy!
