Pennsylvania State Parks

This List of Pennsylvania State Parks contains the 120 state parks in Pennsylvania.  The Pennsylvania Bureau of State Parks, a division of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), is the governing body for all these parks, and directly operates 111 of them.  The remaining nine are operated in cooperation with other public and private organizations.

Included are three other lists: other names of nine Pennsylvania state parks; eighteen former state parks; and other names of two former state parks.  Five former parks have been transferred to the Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission, four to the National Park Service, two to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, one to both the Corps and the Pennsylvania Game Commission, five to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, and one has ceased to exist.

The list gives an overview of Pennsylvania state parks and a brief history of their development since the first park opened in 1893. State parks range in size from 3 acres to 21,122 acres, with nearly one percent (0.96%) of Pennsylvania's land as state park land.  According to Dan Cupper (1993), "Pennsylvania is the thirty-third largest state, but only Alaska and California have more park land".
