June is the perfect month to get out on the water in Cumberland Valley.
For a relaxing experience on the water, try one of the many boating opportunities in the Valley. The scenic Children’s Lake in Boiling Springs is a great afternoon escape. The lake can accommodate shallow-draft boats, canoes and electric motor boats.
Another lake experience can be found at Pine Grove Furnace State Park on Laurel Lake. Rentals are available if you don’t have your own. There are also boating opportunities on the calming waters of the two water trails in the area. The Yellow Breeches Creek Water Trail (a PA Designated Scenic River) and the Conodoguinet Creek Water Trail both feature float-trips that are perfect for kayaks. There are also boating opportunities along the sparkling Susquehanna River.
The whole family can discover a beach getaway without the traffic and cost at Colonel Denning State Park or Pine Grove Furnace State Park. Both of these state parks offer sandy beaches and lake swimming. Swimming is also available at a variety of community pools throughout the area. Find a complete list at VisitCumberlandValley.com.
