Shikellamy State Park
After crossing the Susquehanna river at Sunbury and driving North on US 15 we come
to the Union County Line and also the entrance to the Shikellamy State Park.
This park has a view point looking east over Northumberland, PA and the
North section of Sunbury.  Many Shecklers' have traveled the East side of the river
where the railroad has existed for many years.  The park is in both Union & Snyder Co.
