Salt Springs State Park
Silver Creek Road, just off Route 29, six-miles north of Montrose, Franklin Forks
Eight hundred forty-two of the most beautiful acres in Susquehanna County make up Salt Springs Park. Just under half of this land is a state park the Friends of Salt Springs manage for the Commonwealth, and the rest is our own land we encourage the public to enjoy.
Salt Springs offers the peace and beauty of streams and woodlands combined with nearly 15 miles of trails, historic farm buildings, cottages, camping, picnic grounds, and a variety of programs and events.
Salt Springs is open to the public year-round, without charge, from sunrise to
sunset. The park is 6 miles north of Montrose, the county seat of Susquehanna County, and is within easy driving distance of Scranton, PA, and Binghamton, NY.
The focal points of the 405-acre Salt Springs State Park are the towering old growth hemlock trees, many estimated to be over 300 years old, and the rocky gorge cut by Fall Brook with its three waterfalls.
