CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionOil Creek State Park is the site of the world's first commercial oil well. We tell the story of the early petroleum industry by interpreting oil boomtowns, oil wells and early transportation. We have a 9.7 mile paved bicycle trail. The park is open to hunting. Oil Creek offers a scenic float and is classed as a beginner's creek under normal conditions. Oil Creek is known for its bass and trout, great fishing. A complex of ski trails is also offered for beginnners and intermediate skiers for a variety of skiing experiences. Picnic areas are available throughout the park. There are 52 miles of hiking trails. We have two overnight hike-in areas (Cow Run and Wolfkiel) along the Gerard Hiking Trail. We offer several small self-guiding trails throughout the park. The park offers a wide variety of environmental education and interpretive programs. There is an excursion train that runs through the park from Titusville to Rynd Farm (just outside of Rouseville).
