Worlds End State Park is located on the Loyalsock Creek, near Forksville, Sullivan County. The scenery is beautiful and the trout fishing and whitewater paddling opportunity is abundant in the spring.

Whitewater Kayaking at Worlds End State Park
Whitewater kayakers may use the Loyalsock Creek at any time of the year although the best time for kayaking is during the spring months until late May. Kayakers should inquire about water conditions before coming to the park. The stream is NOT suitable for open canoes.

Camping at Worlds End State Park
A 70-site tent and trailer campground is located near the park along PA 154. Many of the campsites have electric hookups. Restrooms and showers are located near the campsites. Pets are not permitted in the camping area. Organized group camping can accommodate up to 90 people for qualified groups. Advance reservations are necessary.

Cabins
The 19 cabins are available for rent year round. Each cabin contains a refrigerator, range, fireplace insert, table, chairs and beds. A shower building is located near the cabin area.

Fishing at Worlds End State Park
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission stocks the Loyalsock Creek with trout each year. The cold mountain water provides good fishing most of the year, however, water levels can rise and drop rapidly during the summer months.

Hiking
The over 20 miles of hiking trails of Worlds End State Park are mostly rocky with steep sections that climb the surrounding mountains. Hikers should wear proper footgear and be extra cautious in the winter and spring when trail surfaces can be frozen or icy.

Swimming
A small dam on Loyalsock Creek forms a swimming area that is open from May to September. Swim at your own risk. The mountain stream water is always cold and exhilarating.

Although campsites are available on a first come basis, it is advisable to reserve your campsite in advance. You can reserve a campsite online by clicking here. Or you can call 888-PA-PARKS.
