The Kooser State Park is named for John Kooser. In 1922, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania bought the land so that a state park can be built. The land was balding, so to speak, because of the loggers in the area during the later 1800s and the early 1900s.

The Civilian Conservation Corps reforested the area, constructed a camp, and built the dam thereby creating Kooser Lake. They constructed roads, cabins from the logs in the area, and outdoor fireplaces. The fireplaces were built through native stones.

A total of nine cabins can be rented the whole year round. The cabins are normally rented by the skiers after the deer season is over until late March. The rustic cabins offer respite from the hustle and bustle of daily grind. A shower house with modern amenities is located near the cabins.

The cabins are equipped with basic necessities like sleeping mattresses, table, chairs, hot and cold running water, stove, microwave oven and electricity hook-up. Fishing is permitted but hunting is banned here. Come to the Kooser State Park and experience the rustic life!
