Visiting All 117 PA State Parks

Map of All Of The State Parks In PA

When the kids were young, before we moved to the farm, we started camping because it was really the only vacation we could afford.  After a few years we decided to make it our goal to visit every state park in Pa before the kids were grown.

And then we bought the farm.  It's much harder to pick up and go camping when you have a farm!  And then there were the kids sports and activities as they got older.... we didn't reach our goal.  So we'll change the goal. :-) I still want to see all of the state parks in Pa, even if we can't take the kids (now all adults) along with us.

You can go to this link - https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=18u5DfIbV4JFrU7_9JafJL2LSukk&hl=en_US&ll=40.96806350514185%2C-77.7070445&z=8 and it will take you to the map shown above.  Click on the three dots to the right of the title (in the red part) and choose Copy This Map.  Now you can rename it and edit it for your own use.



I then went through the list and changed the icons on every park we have not visited, to green circles.  I have scrapbooks of just our state park trips, my goal is to digitize them so I can make shutterfly copies for each of the kids, and I'll add posts about each park as I do so.
