Vosburg Neck State Park

Vosburg Neck State Park, formerly known as the Howland Preserve, marks Pennsylvania’s newest state park, a testament to conservation and community dedication. Opening to the public in 2006, the park’s journey to its current glory was fueled by the unwavering commitment of Doug and Ali Wilson, among many others who envisioned the 669-acre expanse of forested land as a recreational haven. With the North Branch Land Trust’s initial acquisition in 2003, the Wilsons played a pivotal role in transforming the space through tireless efforts and partnerships, leading to significant improvements and the establishment of a vibrant Friends group. The transition to state park status was bolstered by financial shifts and strategic advocacy, culminating in a $56 million allocation towards the creation of this and two other state parks. Vosburg Neck State Park now stands as a beacon of natural beauty and community effort, promising enhanced recreational opportunities and environmental education for Pennsylvania’s residents and visitors.
