Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests offer adventure, wonder, and good times for you and your friends and family. PPFF is happy to help connect you to the fun and perhaps find some Friends (our Chapters) to help you become more involved in passing a love for these special places and experiences to generations yet to come.
What do you know about the health benefits of going outside to play? There are many! This video and others on our YouTube channel are full of surprises and good information.
Our free Explore Near flyers direct you to the parks and forests near where you live or where you plan to visit:
Allentown (English and Spanish)
Delaware Water Gap
Philadelphia (English and Spanish)
Reading (Special Spanish version with Leave No Trace principles)
South on I-81
