Black Moshannon State Park - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Weekend Trip Report
Trip Dates: June 1-4, 2009
Nearest City: Philipsburg, PA
Difficulty: Easy


The lake was gorgeous and I would recommend this as a trip for anyone. The lake is a bit small gets shallow some spots but well worth the travel.

Black Moshannon is a unique bog land in Pennsylvania and due to its elevation, it harbors plants and animals otherwise not found in this state such as a variety of carnivorous plants. There are many water plants to paddle through and it can be thick but not a problem and it tends to be very cool there because of the mountains. The plants cause water to be a tea or black color which I like. Nice trails and one small one with information about the forest/animals along it.

LOVED IT. A very unique place.


Wonderful campground nothing to complain about. CLEAN with modern bathrooms. Good campsites well wooded and most are spacious enough. The cabins look modern and well kept.


Black Moshannon State Park is in Centre County on PA 504, nine miles east of Philipsburg.
