You can not be disappointed on a clear night here. Your night time blanket is the Milky Way, thousands and thousands of stars can be seen. It truly is unlike anything you have ever seen. It will give you great pause to sit and contemplate where you are at. Go here, while you still can.
If you are lucky enough to gate a clear night this is a great place for stargazing. Nice facilities, very rustic, but that's the idea. Very cold at night, any night, so pack jackets, sleeping bags.
This space is in a wonderful location and it was a great day to drive through and check out the sites. I missed the leaves by a week (or maybe just a single rain storm).
If there is a full moon you will not see so many stars but still well worth the trip at night!! There is a nice seating area so no need for chairs, just take yourself!!!

My only complaint was that we went during a full moon and the light of the moon obstructed many of the stars. That was our fault though, next time we will prepare better :)... 更多
Easy to find off Rt 44. We set up on the free public access of the Dark Skies facility since we were not staying overnight. Plenty of parking and porta potties.
A must stop and see when in the area during the evening on a beautiful clear night. Perfect area all set up for stargazing. Perfect sky views. One area for the professionals and those staying the night and the other area for general public. PA Ranger brings in telescope equipment for public area that also has seating area. You can... 更多
