If you’re looking for information about Sand Bridge State Park, the smallest state park in Pennsylvania, you’re in the right place!
This 3 acre Union County recreational area was initially acquired by the state in 1905, but it did not become a state park until 1978.
The park is located along Route 192; you can use 13180 Buffalo Rd, Mifflinburg, PA 17844 as the address for your GPS system.
The park is primarily used as a roadside picnic area; the three picnic pavilions there were built by workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.
Rapid Run is a stocked trout stream that flows through Sand Bridge State Park, essentially cutting it into two even smaller parcels of land.
The stream is spanned by a wooden foot bridge that connects the two halves of the park.
On the back side of the park, you’ll find restroom facilities on a hill above the picnic pavilions.
The entire park is surrounded by the 194,602-acre Bald Eagle State Forest.
