Introduction of Evansburg State Park

Evansburg State Park is located between Norristown and Collegeville in southcentral Montgomery County. In an urbanised area, Evansburg provides a significant amount of green space and relative solitude.

Its main natural feature, the Skippack Creek, has divided the land into ridges and valleys, creating a sense of enclosure while also providing scenic views.

The first European settlers were Mennonite farmers who used Skippack water to power their industries. Even today, mill ruins, mill buildings, and houses from the 18th and 19th centuries dot the park landscape, serving as reminders of early American life.

The park is now a patchwork of cropland, meadows, old fields, and mature woodlands that draws day visitors from Montgomery County and Philadelphia.

People visit the open play fields, picnic areas, trails, golf course, and the relatively peaceful, natural setting.

Evansburg State Park Camping

Although RV camping is not permitted at Evansburg State Park, RV campsites can be found within a short drive of the park. The ‘Warwick Woods Campground,’ located just west of the state park, is an excellent location for camping. Campers are given partial hookups that include 20, 30 amp electric and water. A dump station, laundry service, shower block, flushing toilets, swimming pool, and on-site general store are all available. Many of the sites are pull-thrus, which means that all sizes of RVs are welcome.

‘Village Scene Park,’ a campground close to the park, is another option. RV campers can get full 20, 30, 50 amp electrical, water, and sewage hookups here. A laundry service, toilets, showers, and free WiFi are available.
