Located in scenic Tioga County in the Pine Creek Valley and PA Grand Canyon landscape of the PA Wilds, the 407-acre Hills Creek State Park abounds in wildlife and beautiful sights. Osprey, loon, and waterfowl visit the lake that boasts a variety of warm-water fish species. Camping, cabins, swimming and picnicking make this an ideal spot for a family vacation. Hills Creek State Park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk.

Leonard Harrison State Park will experience construction and renovations, expected to last from mid-May until the beginning of September. During this time, the PA Wilds Conservation Shop mobile unit will remain at Hills Creek State Park.
