Music at the Marina poster

 

Mercer County boasts a 2,800 - acre wonder — the lake, wetlands, fields and forests of Maurice K. Goddard State Park.

 

Lake Wilhelm marina at Maurice K. Goddard State Park

The park marina basks under a summer sun.

Named for the father of Pennsylvania’s state park system, Goddard is a perfect place for biking, fishing, boating, and picnicking. It’s also close to hunting opportunities at Gamelands 270 and hands-on learning at the McKeever Environmental Education Center.

Founded in 2002, the Friends of Goddard (or FROG) assist the park in many ways: They raise funds for special projects, help coordinate cleanups, and organize the annual Pioneer Frolic the last weekend in June. (The Frolic is a two-day colonial festival complete with reenactments, live music, children’s games, crafts, food, and more.) FROG's accomplishments include outreach activities at Venango County’s annual Earth Day event and donation of a shelter for the park’s 12-mile paved bike trail.
