Dark Skies at Cherry Springs

Cherry Springs State Park is just about as remote and isolated as it was two centuries ago.

The Star Gazing capital of the USA. Its dark skies make it a haven for astronomers. Named for the large stands of black cherry trees in the park, the 82-acre state park is surrounded by the 262,000-acre Susquehannock State Forest. Due to its exceptionally dark skies, Cherry Springs State Park is one of the best places on the eastern seaboard for stargazing and the science of astronomy.
