Vosberg Neck State Park: Endless Discovery in PA's Endless Mountains
If summer has you in an adventuring spirit but the modern era has left you feeling trapped with few fresh frontiers to explore, look no further than the newly-opened Vosberg Neck State Park in Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains. This 669-acre park, situated on an oxbow of the North Branch of the Susquehanna, offers spectacular views of Pennsylvania’s peaks near a lovely wetland which was created by the state’s most well-known river. And whatever your preference—to set out or sit back—a visit to the virginal lands of the Vosberg Neck State Park can satisfy your need to explore the unknown this season.
Vosberg Neck State Park, Wyoming County’s first state park, came into existence through a donation of a proud Pennsylvanian who was adamant that his home it should remain intact and in the hands of the state. Now thousands of outdoor-loving Pennsylvanians (and visitors from across the States) can experience its untouched forests and stunning views for themselves. In addition to acres of pristine wilderness, the park features remnants of historic buildings from the colonial period, an abandoned railway, 8 miles of trails, a canal bed, boating access, and picnic areas from which to enjoy the untrammeled wilderness—with a sandwich (or your signature charcuterie spread) in hand. And once you’ve had your fill of the outdoors, Tunkhannock offers cozy dining, antique shopping, and local produce to satisfy your craving for small town exploits in addition to outdoor adventures.
To reach the newly-minted park from Tunkhannock, take U.S. 6 W for approximately six miles. Turn left onto Vosburg Road and travel 2.6 miles; then turn left into the parking lot by the barn. Please note that, while the park is ADA accessible, restrooms are currently limited to portable facilities.
