Kettle Creek State Park

Kettle Creek State Park consists of 1,793 acres along Kettle Creek in western Clinton County. The park is in a valley surrounded by mountainous terrain and wilderness.

During the Summer months, the park has interpretive programs on the history and environment of the area for all ages. Children's programs, guided walks, and campfire programs are scheduled throughout the week during the summer. Program schedules are available at the park office. 

History of the park:

During the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed the original park in what is now the Lower Campground.

During 1962, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers opened the Alvin R. Bush Dam for flood protection for the lower Susquehanna watershed. The area above the dam was developed for recreation and administered by DCNR’s Bureau of State Parks.
