R. B. Winter State Park covers 695 acres of the Ridge and Valley Province in central Pennsylvania. Located within Bald Eagle State Forest, the park lies in a shallow basin surrounded by rocky ridges covered with an oak and pine forest. The focal point of the park is Halfway Lake which is filled by spring-fed mountain streams and contained by a hand-laid, native sandstone dam. Open year-round, the park provides diverse opportunities for recreation.
Modern Cabin: A modern two-story log cabin is available for year-round rental. The cabin has a furnished living area, kitchen/dining area, 1 ? baths, four bedrooms, and front and back porches. Renters need to provide their own bed linens, bathroom articles, kitchenware and utensils. The cabin is rented on a minimum two-day basis during the off-season and on a weekly basis during the summer.
Camping Cottages: The three cottages sleep five people in single bunks and double/single bunks, and have wooden floors, windows, skylights, porch, picnic table, fire ring, electric lights and outlets, and a small baseboard heater.
Camping: modern sites, some with electric

The 59-site campground accommodates tents, trailers and motor homes. Each site is equipped with a picnic table, lantern holder and a fire ring. Some campsites have electric hookups.

Open from the second Friday in April until mid December, the sites differ slightly in elevation and scenery.

The swimming beach features 300 feet of white sand. The beach is open daily from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day unless otherwise posted. Swim at your own risk. The beach area includes restrooms, dressing facilities, a beach volleyball court and a children?s play area. A seasonal food and refreshment concession is at the beach house.

About 250 picnic tables are dispersed throughout the park. Charcoal grills, drinking water fountains, restrooms, horseshoe pits, play areas, and other park facilities are within easy access from picnic areas. Three separate picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Unreserved pavilions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
