  • Road Closure

    Starting June 11, 2018 and lasting approximately two weeks, the Toms Run Bridge on PA Route 233 will be replaced and the road will be closed. This bridge is located approximately 100 yards north of the stop sign at Pine Grove Road.  Pine Grove Furnace State Park will not be accessible via PA Route 233 south from I-81 exit 37 during the construction period, subject to change.  PennDot will have detours posted.  For those patrons coming from further distances away especially with RVs please use the following:  From Carlisle and points east, take exit 47A off of I-81 and go south on PA Route 34 for 8 miles.  Make a right on Pine Grove Road and go six miles to the park.  From Chambersburg and points west, take exit 16 off of I-81 and go east on US Route 30 for eight and a half miles.  Make a left at the light on PA Route 233 and the park is 12 miles ahead.

  • General Firewood Quarantine: Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order for untreated firewood of any kind coming into the state. Any firewood brought into the state must be kiln dried, heat treated, fumigated, and/or USDA Certified.

    To protect the high quality and native character of our State Parks from exotic invasive species DCNR highly encourages all visitors to:

    • burn/buy locally cut firewood (within 25 miles)

    • BURN ALL firewood brought from another area. Do not leave it. Do not take it with you.

    • Encourage friends and neighbors not to move firewood

    • Do not remove firewood from a Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Area. Contact the PA Department of Agriculture, www.agriculture.pa.gov and search on the keyword Spotted Lantern Fly for current quarantine information.

  • Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD): which is a fatal disease that affects deer and elk, has been detected in all, or portions, of the park.

    Hunters should be aware of special rules and regulations that apply to deer harvested within the Disease Management Area (DMA). It is recommended that those deer be tested for the disease.

    More information about CWD can be found on the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture websites. In addition, the Pennsylvania Game Commission provides information about deer processors and disposal sites in the DMA.

  • Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.
