About the Park
Located on a scenic oxbow bend in the Susquehanna River’s North Branch, Vosburg Neck State Park spans 669-acres, weaving together a rich historical and recreational tapestry. Known regionally as the ‘Vosburg Neck,’ it is just five miles west of the Susquehanna Greenway River Town of Tunkhannock in Wyoming County.
Vosburg Neck boasts 8 miles of trails, enticing visitors to embark on hiking and nature adventures. Non-motorized boating access to the Susquehanna River offers a serene aquatic experience, and designated picnic areas provide opportunities to relax and enjoy the wooded park environment.
Structures at the park, dating back to the 1700s and 1800s, provide a tangible link to the past, while remnants of a canal bed and rail bed underscore the area’s historical significance. Adding a touch of historical mystique, a cemetery from the 1700s also lies within the park’s boundaries—an interesting feature to explore for history buffs.
