Ralph Stover State Park

Rock climbing and whitewater hotspot in this park along Tohickon Creek


The Experience

Experienced whitewater enthusiasts love what heavy rains do to Tohickon Creek, which flows through the 45 acres of Ralph Stove State Park. The famous High Rocks, a 200-foot sheer rock face, is a popular draw for rock climbers, and there’s a scenic picnic area with an outstanding view of the creek’s horseshoe bend.

Anglers, take your gear, because the creek’s well-stocked with trout. In summer, look out for warm-water fish such as bass, sunfish, carp and catfish. If you decide to wander the easy trails along the millrace, make sure to note the many habitats along the way.

Come Prepared

The cliffs are sheer and dangerous, so if you are not an experienced climber, stay behind the safety rail. The park closes at sunset, alcoholic beverages are prohibited and pets must be leashed

Don’t Miss

Twice each year, in the spring and fall, a whitewater release provides Class 5 rapids for canoeing and kayaking. For experienced enthusiasts only!
