Pymatuning State Park | jamestown

One of the largest state parks in the state, Pymatuning is the one you don’t want to miss. What makes this park so unique is the fact that bald eagles are constantly spotted here. Thanks to an intensive recovery program, the bald eagle population has grown and flourished since the 20th century. Although you can spot these majestic creatures any time of the year, the best time to visit is winter. With fewer visitors and fewer leaves on the trees, you’ll be better able to spot bald eagles as they roost on the ice near the Pymatuning Dam.
