"Shikellamy State Park" Lewisburg Off The Beaten Path Tip by PA2AKgirl
Lewisburg Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 6 photos
It's not really as great at the other state parks in this area, but it's about 5 minutes from my house, on the same road where I live, so it deserves a tip:) Also, the view here, especially on a clear day is wonderful--you can see much of the Susquehanna Valley and where the north and west branches of the Susquehanna meet.
I guess the one part of it is more of an overlook--but there's playgrounds and some picnic areas here as well. Close by you have Shamokin Dam, Selinsgrove, Sunbury (yuck) and Northumberland...all have places to eat and shop. Lewisburg is about 9 miles away or so...
We used to come here in the fall when I was little to gather leaves. My sister in law even made me put together a leaf book when I was 5--I just found it the other day in amazingly great shape. Therefore, I can tell you that there are aspen, birch, oak, maple, dogwood, sassafras and pine trees here. Thank god for that leaf book...
Across the river, still part of Shikellamy state park, is the marina. There's a larger park over there for kids, a dog park, places to rollerblade, 2 miles of trails for biking or walking, a boat launch, etc...
This park was named after Iroquois chief, Shikellamy (pronounced Shick el lemmy...) who was a good friend of both the colonists and American Indians.
