Raymond B. Winter State Park offers 695 acres on which to recreate. The area lies within the Bald Eagle State Forest in a narrow valley 1,500 feet above sea level surrounded by oak forests on steep mountain ridges. This beautiful area offers recreation opportunities throughout the year. The park is a cold-water fishery which features brown and brook trout in the 7 acre lake and Rapid Run offers 12 miles of trout stream. The park provides camping in 60 tent and RV sites and one modern cabin. Folks enjoy walking the 6.3 miles of trails and enjoy using them as cross-country skiing trails during the winter months. Three areas are provided for picnicking. Approximately 350 tables insure a place to dine in the outdoors with charcoal grills, playfields and restrooms nearby. Snowmobilers from Bald Eagle State Forest use the park facilities during the winter months.
An environmental education specialist on a year-round basis presents programs. Programs are available for organized groups and general public. Historical and natural resources topics are addressed during hikes, slides presentations videos, children's programs and special events. A butterfly garden is located between the park office and lodge.
Halfway Run Environmental Learning Center is a wildlife viewing area and displays on local mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians are among the highlights to be experienced at the center. Various "hands-on" exhibits are available including microscope explorations, touch tables, a "Wall of Wood," computer stations and a cozy reading corner loaded with nature books, puzzles and games for young and old. Summer hours are posted, otherwise the center is open only by appointment.
