Yaw Encourages Residents to Enjoy Pennsylvania’s Great Outdoors This Year

(WILLIAMSPORT)  Is the economy impacting your plans for summer travel?  If you enjoy the outdoors, it should not according to Sen. Gene Yaw.

The Lycoming County Republican lawmaker said Pennsylvania has more than 100 state parks across the Commonwealth and there is no admission charged to enjoy the great outdoors.

“You can enjoy a variety of family-oriented fun including viewing wildlife and beautiful scenic vistas, hiking, picnicking, camping, rock climbing, swimming and a host of other activities in our State Park System,” Yaw said.  “With 117 state parks there is bound to be one close to your home.”

Yaw added that in addition to tent camping, many of the state parks have modern cabins rentals available.  People interested in making reservations should visit the State Park website, www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks or call 1-888-PA-PARKS, between 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday.

“I would encourage people to visit a state park this summer” Yaw said.  Each park offers a unique outdoor experience.”
