Sunnyday's Forest

1 site · Lodging25 acres · Tarentum, PA
Sunnyday's farm and forest was  a Christmas tree farm in the 1950's. I've owned it for the last 30 years and it is now a horse farm with pastures and  woods.Rustic area of 25 acres of pastures and forest bordering a hundred of acres of railroad and municipal forest. Great for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking. 1.5 miles from Deer Lakes park which has fishing, hiking, mountain biking and a great playground. The Allegheny river, judged to be one of the cleanest in the country, is just 6 miles away.  Harrison Hills park offers great hiking along the river and an occasional river otter. The Rachel Carson Trail and Baker trail are just a few miles away. It is a secluded log cabin in the woods on top of a hill overlooking a pasture. It is a very primitive cabin with a fireplace, brick floor, large porch, fabric interior and no chinking in the logs.  We provide a bunk bed and cots and 2 picnic tables.. There is a large grassy area in front of the cabin for tents.  There is no vehicle access, no electricity and no water at the cabin, but LOTS of downed wood for fires. There are horses, goats, chickens, ducks and a pig that roam the pastures. The cabin is about 300 yards from the parking area up a fairly steep hill, but the location is worth the walk!   If you're stopping with an RV or trailer we have ample parking near the road and have overnight accommodations for horses Great place for a stopover.

The best camping near Tomlinson Run State Park guide

Overview

About

We got 99 problems but a yurt ain’t one. Whether you camp, cabin or yurt your way to a good night’s sleep in these forested hills, you’ll need to be well-rested to take on a day of boating, basketball, swimming, and volleyball. That’s right, hidden in this remarkable patch of wilderness is an all-inclusive recreation center with every activity under the sun. Looking for a little more solitude than the volleyball court can offer? Head to the woodland hills for a walk through the wildflowers, admiring the overhanging rocky cliffs and endless greenery. Wandering through these stunning sandstone and shale cliffs, and neon-green tree canopies, will easily eat up all the hours of your day, but leave time for an evening game of miniature golf to get those competitive juices flowing!

When to go

The ideal time to visit Tomlinson Run State Park is during the spring and fall, when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers warm days perfect for water activities, though it can be busy. Winters are less crowded but chillier, so pack accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any alerts on closures or safety advisories before your trip.
  • Ensure you have the necessary permits for fishing or other regulated activities.
  • Accessibility varies across the park, so inquire ahead if you require special accommodations.
  • Facilities include restrooms and picnic areas, but always pack out your trash.
  • For a smooth visit, arrive early, especially during peak season from 8:30am to 5pm.
