|State Park Overview:|
|The stream Hyner Run carves a small valley from the surrounding steep mountains, creating a cozy, quiet place for a family adventure. The park is entirely surrounded by Sproul State Forest, Pennsylvania?s largest state forest. Hyner View State Park is nearby.|
|Reviews By Park Visitors:|
One of the cleanest, well-kept parks.
I have been going to park for over 40 years. Swimming pool is great (sometimes cool water). Nice climbing wall. A nice setting for a great camping weekend. Nice to visit the town of Renova, especially during Fall Foliage Weekend.

|The camping area is open the second week in April and closes after the end of deer season in December. The camping area has 30 sites. Each site contains a level pad, picnic table and fire ring. Water and non-flush toilets with handwashing facilities are centrally located in the area, and a sanitary dump station is near the entrance of the campground.|
|The park is the eastern trailhead for the 50-mile Donut Hole Trail system, a moderate to rugged trail for the backpackers. Shorter hikes are available close to the park on state forest lands.|
|The seven-acre picnic area contains 150 picnic tables with the majority of tables in full to partial shade. A limited number of grills are also available. Two picnic pavilions, 24 feet by 36 feet, may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Unreserved picnic pavilions are free on a first come first served basis.|
|The large swimming pool is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, unless otherwise posted. The hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. There is also a 15 feet by 15 feet wading pool.|
|Fishing and Hunting:|
Hyner Run is excellent trout fishing. Brook and brown trout are stocked annually and native brook trout inhabit its upper reaches. Numerous other mountain streams within a relatively short distance of the park provide excellent trout fishing. The nearby right branch of Young Womans Creek has a fly fishing area.
About 20 acres are open to hunting, trapping and the training of dogs during established seasons. Common game species are deer, bear, turkey and grouse. Common furbearers are bobcat, red and gray fox, coyote and raccoon. Thousands of acres of adjoining state forest are also open to hunting.
Hunting woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, is prohibited. Dog training is only permitted from the day following Labor Day through March 31 in designated hunting areas. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Game Commission rules and regulations apply. Contact the park office for accessible hunting information.
Use extreme caution with firearms at all times. The park is used by other visitors during hunting seasons. Firearms and archery equipment may be uncased and ready for use only in authorized hunting areas during hunting seasons. In areas not open to hunting or during non-hunting seasons, firearms and archery equipment must be kept in the owner?s car, trailer or camp.
|History of the Area:|
|The park was originally developed as a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp. Although most traces of the camp are gone, some remain as reminders of that era. In 1944, much of the park was planted with red and white pine, known as plantation number 10-44-8.|
For more information on the CCC, visit the Civilian Conservation Corps Online Archive.
The park opened to the public in 1958 with the completion of the swimming pool, bathhouse, concession, picnic area and restrooms. A camping area was later added to the park and was opened to the public in 1975. Many other improvements and maintenance to the park have been accomplished through the federally funded Youth Conservation Corps and the Young Adult Conservation Corps programs.

Sproul State Forest: Hyner Run State Park and Hyner View State Park are in the heart of the 276,764-acre Sproul State Forest.
