Northumberland and Packer Island

Iconic views from Shikellamy State Park lookout of the two branches of the Susquehanna River.

In the foreground on the left is Northumberland and to the right Packer Island where the Shikellamy State Park Marina resides.

Susquehanna River Fabridam in Sunbury

Every May, the "bags are up" damming the river to make Lake Augusta. By Memorial Day, the boats are out enjoying the seasonal lake.

The "Fabridam", built over 40 years ago, is an engineering marvel that's inflated with air and water.

Long standing conflicts over the impact on fish "Shad" runs and recreation were eventually resolved with a fish passage on the West side.

Shikellamy State Park Marina

A true relaxing sanctuary located on Packer Island between Sunbury and Northumberland.

A one mile paved trail laps the park. Hundreds of tables and parking make for an inviting picnic retreat.

During the summer, the garden blooms for an added highlight to park.

Forest Hills Cemetery - Pond Reflections

In proximity to the trails that lead to Klapperthal trails or down to the river (Exeter Scenic River Trail), this is a lovely pond in a peaceful setting.

Forest Hills is a beautiful final resting place with it's rolling hills and mature shade trees.

Marsh Creek State Park Sunset

On a mild spring evening, the perfect spot for sunset viewing and photography is Marsh Creek State Park.

With a long shoreline, calm waters and different objects to silhouette against the colors.
