Yellow Creek State Park, a state park in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. The centerpiece of the 3,000-acre park is Yellow Creek Lake, which covers 720 acres and is fed by two creeks. On the south shore is a large swimming beach, and on the north shore are several public launch and picnic areas, as well as the Boy Scout Camp Seph Mack, and a number of cabins and yurts for rent. There visitors will find the McFeater’s Cove mooring area. Fisherman pursue “smallmouth and largemouth bass, walleye, muskellunge, northern pike, tiger muskellunge, yellow perch, bluegill and catfish.” There are three public boat launches, and canoes, kayaks, and pontoon boats are available to rent from the marina during the warmer months. The park is also distinguished by an extensive network hiking and 18 miles of single-track mountain bike trails. These trails are developed, mapped, and maintained by volunteers including FOYC members in collaboration with the park. A waterproof map of the trails and the lake is available at the park office and area retailers.
