Below is a list of major projects our Friends group has completed in its lifetime.

Volleyball Anyone?

The Friends group spread sand at the volleyball court at Trough Creek on September 4th 2020 just in time for the upcoming Holiday weekend. It has been very well received by the park guests and has seen a lot of use!

Table Kits!

New wooden tables will take the place of metal ones which are currently under the CCC Era Pavilions as well as various other places throughout the park. The group plans to continue assembling wooden picnic tables as needed by the park.

Yet More Volleyball!

A few of our members were at Warriors Path on May 25th spreading sand and installing the volleyball net at pavilion number 2. The court was completed and ready for use just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to those members who were available to help!

Tree Planting!

A handful of our members met at Trough Creek to plant the trees donated to the park by Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Foundation. Thank you to our members and Mike Garbinsky, park naturalist, for helping out! 


After three years of fundraising our playground for the campground at Trough Creek State Park has finally become a reality. Our friends group is beyond excited to see it complete. We have had our obstacles to overcome but what a beautiful result! Our group has held first day of trout season events as a fundraiser and we have received some private monetary donations, however wood sales at the campground has been our primary money maker.  We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has helped to support our friends group.  Your generosity has been very much appreciated. The friends group would also like to acknowledge and say thank you for the very professional job from Tanner Manspeaker of T&C Excavating and Trucking Inc. of Saxton for all site preparation.  Last and certainly not least we want to thank park manager Joe Basil for his support throughout the project.

Stay Tuned for More...
