Two picnic areas are located in Oil Creek State Park. Both have parking, restrooms, water, charcoal grills, picnic tables, picnic pavilions, playfields, and access to Oil Creek.
Picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Call 888-PA-PARKS for reservations.
Unreserved picnic pavilions are free on a first-come, first-served basis.
Picnic tables and restrooms are also located at key points along the bicycle trail.
In 2016 Friends of Oil Creek State Park received a grant to purchase new playground equipment for the Egbert Farm (Petroleum Centre) day use area. The grant was written by Greenways and provided by a charitable fund administered by PNC Bank.
Site preparation and equipment installation was done by park maintenance personnel.
Our special thanks to all those involved in this project.
We continue to look for additional grant funding for equipment at the Blood Farm day use area.
