Colton Point State Park, Pine Creek Gorge


Pine Creek Gorge, north-central Pennsylvania, near Ansonia. In addition to beautiful scenery, Colton Point offers great birding. There is a primitive campground there as well.


Notable Species

Staying in a tent, serenaded at night by the Barred Owls was awesome! There are resident Common Ravens and Red-shouldered Hawks. Summer birding is great for woodland species too!

kindred spirit's review If you have never seen a raven, or heard barred owls, this is the place to go. It is far quieter there than Leonard Harrison SP, which is across the gorge. The times we have camped at Colton Point (May, July and October) there was only one or two other people camping there.


  • Great birding
  • camping there allows experience of night birding
