Yellow Creek State Park

The 2,981-acre Yellow Creek State Park is in Indiana County along one of the first “highways” in the state, the Kittanning Path. This trail was used by the Delaware and Shawnee nations and by early settlers.

Today, visitors enjoy the sand beach, picnicking and the educational programs. The 720-acre Yellow Creek Lake is a destination for boaters and anglers. The lake and park are an important rest stop for migrating birds.

The park is named for Yellow and Little Yellow creeks, which create the lake. The creeks have lots of yellow clay in the banks and bottoms.

This area offers hiking, mountain biking, camping, picnicking, boating, swimming and fishing. In the winter you can also icefish, ice skate, ice boat, snowmobile, sled and tubing, and cross country skiing.

Camping Cabins and Yurts are available by reservation.
