They have trees up to 300 years old with more than 300,000 visitors each year. They are in the running for USA Todays’ title of Best State Park in the U.S.
“The virgin timber is unforgettable, the towering giants of hemlock and white pine towering over waterfalls on rivers and streams that circle the park is what most of our visitors comment about continually, it is unparalled Letchworth State Park out of New York has been our contender for the number one spot and as of this morning we are back in second place so we are asking the public, if you love the Porkies, vote, vote, vote,” said Park Admistrator, Sandra Richardson, Porcupine National State Park.
