Peters Sawmill

3 sites · Lodging15 acres · Hillsgrove, PA
In the heart of the forest, nestled among towering trees and surrounded by breathtaking views, a humble cabin. It’s the place that evokes tranquility and solitude, offering a refuge from the chaos of the outside world. What makes this cabin truly captivating is its unique location, obscured by the presence of a running sawmill. Come enjoy watching as it takes you back in time. This sawmill is unlike any bandmill, boasting a massive 4 and a half-foot circular saw, a relic from the years between 1935 and 1945. Its rhythmic, melodic hum fills the air, blending seamlessly with the symphony of nature. The captivating noise created an enchanting ambiance, luring those in search of solace and beauty. We run our mill with recycled cooking oil and a diesel blend. Behind the sawmill, nature thrives harmoniously. Wildlife painted the surroundings with vibrant colors, as birds filled the sky with their elegant dances and curious squirrels scurried about, their fluffy tails adding a playful touch to the lush landscape. The cabin is a sanctuary where one can witness the wonders of nature, just a walk away from the roaring sawmill. Come check out a piece of preserved history all while enjoying pristine wooded views! Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in history. Enjoy the power of the circular saw, a symbol of the immense progress and craftsmanship of yesteryears. Together, the cabin, the forest, and the sawmill form a perfect harmony — a testament to the beauty of nature entwined with mankind's desire to create. It offers a glimpse into a world where modernity meets tradition, where breathtaking views and the symphony of the sawmill entice all who venture here to enjoy.

River Mountain Outdoors

5 sites · Lodging, Tents83 acres · Bloomsburg, PA
The history of the Pump House began in 1878, when three ambitious men hatched a plan for the world's first long-distance underground oil pipeline which would transport oil from well to refinery more quickly and efficiently than the horse-drawn wagons of the time. Pumping stations were needed every fifty miles along this long route to keep pressure on the pipeline so that the oil could reach its destination. Pump House Bed and Breakfast is one of the only properties in the country in which the both the original homes of the foremen and the large brick buildings remain. Doug, owner, has spent more than 20 years lovingly restoring these foreman houses as well as the large industrial brick buildings. The Brick Barn Hall once housed steam pumps to pressurize the pipe and keep the oil moving, and the Catawissa Cabin behind it served as the telegraph office. The Studio Hall contained boilers that produced the steam to power the pumps, while the adjoining Studio Cabin functioned as a blacksmith's workspace. Today, the buildings function as reception spaces for weddings and other special events, and house private suites as well as an art studio where Doug pursues his work and teaches drawing, ceramics, and stained glass classes. The Season House, one of the two foreman homes, features additional guest accommodations while Doug resides in the other foreman house. Visit and experience a piece of PA history!

The best camping near Worlds End State Park guide

Overview

About

This state park isn't at the end of the world. But the spectacular scenery and quiet hiking trails make you feel like the last person on earth. Nestled in a narrow S-shaped valley of the Loyalsock Creek, the 780-acre park is surrounded by state forest. That vast wilderness offers endless exploration.

Trails crisscross the area, including the short but challenging Butternut Trail. For scenic vistas--and photos--trek the Canyon Vista Trail to the Loyalsock Canyon Vista. This lookout sits 650 feet above the park, offering stunning views of the creek below. You can also reach it by car off Cold Run Road.

The park offers 70 camping sites, about half with electric hook-ups. Tent campers may opt for a primitive site. Access to shower houses, picnic tables, and a playground is included. Near the beach and swim area, a seasonal snack bar sells fast-food and picnicking essentials. For cushier accommodations, rent one of the rustic cabins and settle in next to the wood-burning fireplace.

When to go

The best time to visit Worlds End State Park is during the mild months of spring and fall, when the park's flora is in full bloom and the autumn leaves create a tapestry of color. Summer offers warm days perfect for water activities, though it can be crowded. Winters are harsh, with snow often limiting access to certain areas.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your visit, as the park's terrain can be challenging in inclement weather.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking on rugged trails and bring plenty of water.
  • Be aware of park wildlife and maintain a safe distance at all times.
  • Review the park's rules and regulations, including any fire restrictions and Leave No Trace principles.
  • Cell service may be limited, so plan accordingly and inform someone of your itinerary.
