Lyman Run State Park

Potter County Pennsylvania

The 595-acre Lyman Run State Park is in scenic Potter County. A mixed northern hardwood forest of mostly maples and cherries surrounds the 45-acre Lyman Run Lake, making a most scenic setting.

Lyman Run State Park was named for Major Isaac Lyman, an American Revolutionary War soldier believed to be the second permanent settler in Potter County. In 1809, Lyman built his home in nearby Lymansville (now Ladonna), east of present day Coudersport.

In the 1880s, large stands of white pine were harvested and floated down Lyman Run to Pine Creek and on to Williamsport. In the 1890s, Goodyear Brothers purchased most of the land drained by the West Branch of Pine Creek. Frank and Charles Goodyear owned the railroad and lumber company.

By the turn of the century, the white pine was gone and the loggers harvested the hemlocks. A large camp and engine terminal was built in the area that presently serves as the park’s day use area. The land was sold several times to harvest the regrowing timber.

In the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps built Camp S-88 in the area that presently serves as the maintenance area. Towards the end of World War II, the camp was used to house German prisoners-of-war.

In 1951 the former Department of Forests and Waters began building the facilities that became Lyman Run State Park.


Lyman Run State Park is 15 miles east of Coudersport and seven miles west of Galeton on Lyman Run Road.
