Hyner Run State Park was originally developed by the men of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) S-75-PA Camp Hyner. Although most traces of the camp are gone, some remain as reminders of that era, like plantation number 10-44-8, which are the red and white pines planted throughout the park. The park opened to the public in 1958 with the completion of the swimming pool, bathhouse, concession, picnic area, and restrooms. The camping area opened in 1975. Hyner View State Park CHILDREN’S PLAY AREA: Play equipment for children is between the swimming pool and the camping area. HUNTING AND FIREARMS: Over 90 acres are open to hunting, trapping, and the training of dogs during established seasons. Common game species are white-tailed deer, black bear, wild turkey, and ruffed grouse. Common furbearers are bobcat, red and gray fox, coyote, and raccoon. Thousands of acres of adjoining state forest are also open to hunting. Hunting woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, is prohibited. Dog training is only permitted from the day following Labor Day through March 31 in designated hunting areas. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Game Commission rules and regulations apply. Contact the park office for ADA accessible hunting information. Use extreme caution with firearms at all times. Other visitors use the park during hunting seasons. Firearms and archery equipment used for hunting may be uncased and ready for use only in authorized hunting areas during hunting seasons. In areas not open to hunting or during non-hunting seasons, firearms and archery equipment shall be kept in the owner’s vehicle or enclosed trailer. Exceptions include: law enforcement officers and individuals with a valid Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms are authorized to carry a firearm concealed on their person while they are within a state park. SNOWMOBILING: The park is a trailhead for the 64-mile Hyner Mountain Snowmobile Trail and provides plowed parking and unloading areas and unheated restrooms. Snowmobiles may be operated on designated trails and roads from the day following the last deer season in December until April 1, weather permitting. The focal point of Hyner View State Park is the overlook wall, constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. In 1949, the present park access road was built providing vehicular access to the view. With the opening of this road, the Flaming Foliage Festival, a local tourist promotion project, was first held at the view. This festival has since outgrown the view and has been moved to Renovo.
