About the Park

Located 6 -miles northwest of Wrightsville, PA in York County, Susquehanna Riverlands State Park spans 1,044-acres along the confluence of Codorus Creek with the scenic Susquehanna River. Thanks to its proximity to the river and creek, the state park boasts about 2.5 miles of waterfront views. Along this expanse, a notable feature of this park are the many rock outcropping vistas overlooking the river. One spot worth visiting is Schull’s Rock Overlook, which offers a stunning view of the Susquehanna River.

Adding to Susquehanna State Park’s allure, a 2.75-mile segment of the Mason-Dixon Trail weaves through the park, connecting the Appalachian Trail at Whiskey Springs in Cumberland County with Chadds Ford along the Brandywine River.
