About the Park

In 1807, Daniel Miller set aside nearly 20-acres of land for public park space in his original plan for “Milersburgh.” Today his legacy is appreciated by thousands of residents and visitors of Millersburg River Front Park, a gateway to the Lykens Valley Rail Trail and site of the historic Millersburg Ferry, which runs from May to October.

As its name implies, Millersburg Riverfront Park lies on the banks of the Susquehanna River, with easy river access and expansive views. It offers a picnic area and numerous benches and swings, making it the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll or bike ride and watch the river pass by. The park also features a boat launch that serves as the take-out point for the popular overnight kayaking route, Isle of Que to Millersburg Riverfront Park.
