Wrightsville PA Real Estate - Samuel S. Lewis State Park

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

My family & I had a great Labor Day picnic at Samuel S. Lewis State Park in Wrightsville, PA.  Just across the Susquehanna River from Lancaster County, Samuel S. Lewis is 85 acres with an incredible view.  It's worth the drive just to see the vistas of theWrightsville PA Real estate, Samuel S. Lewis State Park river and Lancaster County beyond.  We were there for a spectacular sunset which lit up the hilltop park.

Wrightsville PA Real estate, Samuel S. Lewis State ParkSamuel S. Lewis State Park is dominated by 885 foot Mount Pisgah.  There is a viewpoint with one of those sets of fixed binoculars that you need quarters to activate - we didn't have any.  Still, the view was wonderful even to the naked eye.  There is about 1 mile of hiking trails with moderate elevation change.  Three picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance  for a fee by calling 1-888-PA-PARKS.  Unreserved picnic pavilions are available free on a first-come basis.  We used one of the many free-standing picnic tables set about the hilltop area.  Parking is plentiful & nearby to the bulk of the picnic areas.

One interesting possibility at "Sam Lewis" is kite flying at the crest of the ridge.  There is plenty of room to spread out and catch some breeze.  Local enthusiast groups gather here periodically.  The park closes at dusk so get here early. 

Take an afternoon and drive over to Samuel S. Lewis State Park - you'll enjoy the time away.

Sam Lewis is a great park in a great location!  Just to add a little, you can also reserve it for a group event.  My husband is from the Lancaster side of the Musser family who pioneered the home farms on the north side of the Susquehanna River, just across from our current home near the Accomac Inn.  They have decide to have a multigenerational reunion this summer and bring back cousins who have not visited the sites that have family historical significance.  We will gather at the Sam Lewis park for the day and make field trips across the river to the Musser farms.

With such a beautiful spot and the facilities available we are looking forward to a great day!

I will plan to share a couple of pix after the event.

We do love living in this beautiful part of the world!
