Today, Ole Bull State Park offers a wonderful rustic cabin for rent in addition to its campground. There are picnicking, fishing and swimming opportunities along Kettle Creek. A one-hour hike travels through the Black Forest of Pennsylvania while a shorter trail offers sites of Ole Bull's homestead. A nature trail provides an introduction to the environment along the creek. This three-quarter mile trail starts at the concrete fordway. Its flat trail surface is easily walked. In addition, the more difficult 85-mile Susquehannock Trail System passes through park in an east / west direction.
The park provides an environmental interpreter during the summer months. The park interpreter uses the history and environment of the area to develop an attitude of wise and constructive use of our natural resources. The programs include guided walks, children's programs and evening campfire programs.
Winter visitors will find that the park provides parking, restrooms and picnic shelters. Cross-country skiing is a favorite winter time activity and are permitted on all park trails.
Twenty-five acres of park land is open for hunting, trapping and the training of dogs. The park is surrounded by state forest land which is also open and within walking distance from campgrounds and parking lots. Safety zone areas are posted. Pennsylvania Game Commission laws apply in all areas, with the exception of: 1) hunting of woodchucks also known as groundhogs is prohibited and 2) dog training is only permitted from the day following Labor Day to March 31 in designated hunting areas. Many Pennsylvania bird and mammal species can be found in the surrounding area. The most popular game species include turkey, ruffed grouse, squirrel, white-tailed deer and black bear.
Two campsites with electric and picnic tables in Area 1 are handicapped accessible. Senior citizens and people with disabilities should contact the park office if assistance is needed.
