State Park · Hidden Gem · Park
Mt. Pisgah State Park is a 1302acre Pennsylvania state park in Smithfield, Springfield, Troy and West Burlington Townships, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The park is located almost exactly halfway between Troy and Towanda, along Pennsylvania State Route 3019, near U.S. Route 6, at the base of Mt. Pisgah. The park is bordered by Mill Creek, Mt. Pisgah County Park and State Game Land 289. Mill Creek which flows through the park has been dammed and forms Stephen Foster Lake a 75acre man-made lake.
The land on which Mt. Pisgah State Park is located was not settled permanently until the early 19th century. The first settlers migrated from New England. They cleared the land of its dense old-growth forest of pine and hardwood trees for farming. The stumps were stacked in fence rows, which still form the boundary of some of the old fields in the park. The land was used primarily for farming until 1969 when it was purchased by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Stephen Foster Lake, named for the famed composer and former resident of Tioga County was formed by damming Mill Creek in 1977. Mt. Pisgah State Park was opened to the public in 1979.
