Pennsylvania’s 121 State Parks are seeing a surge in visitors this year, including right here in Luzerne County.

According to park officials at Frances Slocum State Park, in May it saw a visitor increase of more than 40 percent.

“On nice days, people are really taking advantage of coming out and enjoying their parks,” said Kevin Koflanovich, park manager.

In a recent study released by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council it shows that trail traffic has increased as much as 200 percent during March and April.
