Enjoy Bear Creek lake State Park and the surrounding Cumberland State Forest with our ParkPacks. These backpacks hold a variety of items useful for exploring the park on your own. The Birder Pack has binoculars, bird call audio identification cards and player, and bird field guides. Our Forest Pack has info on animal tracks and scat (what's that?), tree identification, flower pocket guides, magnifiers and other helpful items to let you find your way at your own pace. These packs are free to loan out and may be reserved on an 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily basis, or during posted office hours. Only one of each pack is available on a first come, first served basis. Contact the park office for pack availability.
