Marsh Creek State Park

MarshCreek State Park is a 535 acre lake surrounded by 1705 acres of beautiful Chester County countryside. Two boat launches, boat rentals, food concession stand, swimming pool, and picnic areas make this park a great place for everyone. Fisherman can try their luck for largemouth bass (up to 10 Lbs.), small mouth bass (up to 5 Lbs.) , and musky (up to 50 inches) Also abundant panfish, including yellow perch (up to 16"), crappies ( up to 15"), and bluegills over a pound! Spring fishing is always best, starting right after ice out (approx March), until the weather warms the water excessively. Then you must either fish deep or at night for best results. Water depths exceed 60' towards the dam. Spring fishing us usually best in shallower water such as areas like "the bridge", where plenty of panfish can be found, and bass fishing turns on early. There is an occasional musky caught during the spring spawn and sometimes even a walleye which are becoming a rarity. Marsh Creek is a state park and is free to the public and open year round. Boats need pre-registraion or launch permit(manually operated) to launch. Park office phone number is 610-458-5040.
