Ohiopyle State Park, Ohiopyle
Bike, hike, or whitewater raft along the Youghiogheny River Gorge at Ohiopyle State Park. This park, which opened in 1965, features 23 km (14 mi) of the Youghiogheny River and boasts some of the best rafting in the eastern United States. Different parts of the park offer level I and II rapids, while another section affords the more difficult level III and IV rapids. Take in stunning views of the park's many waterfalls, including the 6.1 m (20 ft) Ohiopyle Falls, as you raft. Another favorite is the park's natural Meadow Run Waterslides, which have been carved out by nature and function like a waterpark waterslide in a natural setting, only a bit rougher. You can also canoe, kayak, horseback ride, and even cross-country ski through this 19,052 hectare (7,710 acre) park with over 160 km (100 mi) of trails.

The water was fast and furious when we were there for a visit. At 32 degrees and snowing no one on the river. Still the walk across the bridge is amazing. Beautiful PA park. more »
Gorgeous park. Walking and hiking trails. Plenty to do for all ages. Rafting kayaking guided tours. Town has neat shops, restaurants, and bars. Can swim and play in the river during warmer months. Water is always chilly but very clean. Frequent here all the time. Whether you live in the area or passing through highly recommend stopping if you're an outdoorsy type or adventure seeker!
Ohiopyle is my favorite small town. From spring to fall it is hustling with activity. Biking, hiking, and water sports are the main attractions. Small eateries are everywhere. The waterfall is mesmerizing, and the river is free to wade into. I just love this place.
