More About Visit Bedford County's (PA) Shawnee State Park

Shawnee State Park opened in 1951 is a beautiful 3,983-acre park that features a 451 acre lake. Shawnee is located adjacent to Rt 30, Schellburg PA, just 10 miles west of Bedford. The park was named for the Shawnee Indians who originally inhabited the area. The area surrounding the park was used as a trade route and military road during the French and Indian War. General John Forbes built the Forbes Road (which the modern-day U.S. Highway 30 parallels) to send supplies from the ports in Philadelphia and Baltimore to a force of British soldiers under his command as he tried to capture Fort Duquesne from the French in 1758.

Shawnee State Park has a 293 site campground. The sites are modern with some electric hook-ups. There is a centrally located bathhouse with flush toilets, hot showers and a sanitary dump station at the campground. Camping season usually begins with trout season opening in mid-April and ends at the conclusion of deer season in late December.

In addition to modern campsites, there are yurts available, a lodge, and youth group camping area.

In 2017 Shawnee State Park was recognized as "Park of the Year" by the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation.

Shawnee State Park is open for year-round recreation. There are 15 miles (24 km) of trails open for hiking and some are open to biking. Five pavilions are spread throughout the park along with numerous picnic tables.

Shawnee Lake is a warm water fishery. It is stocked with game fish by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. The common fish are walleye, pickerel, smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern pike, muskellunge, catfish, crappie, yellow perch, bluegill, bullhead, sucker and carp. While pleasantly warm for swimming, and supportive of the above fish, Shawnee lake is too warm to support a trout population. There are three boat launches at Shawnee Lake for electric and non powered boats only. Gas powered boats are prohibited at Shawnee State Park. All boats must have a current registration with any state or a launch permit from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. The beach at Shawnee State Park is open daily from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend

Go for a day, weekend or longer and visit this beautiful Tri state area park.
