Shamokin Dam Vacations
Shamokin Dam is located some 130 miles (209 kilometers) from Washington, the national capital, and about 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Harrisburg - Hershey.
Shamokin Dam isn't the only place in Central Pennsylvania worth exploring; visitors with plenty of time should also drive a little further out to experience the magic of the surrounding countryside, communities and cultural attractions. Go to Selinsgrove, and enjoy the Susquehanna University and Selinsgrove Speedway. Selinsgrove is 4 miles (6 kilometers) away from Shamokin Dam is a great place to spend some time. Lewisburg is another spot worth investigating. Here you'll find the Packwood House Museum and Bucknell University. Lewisburg is 9 miles (14 kilometers) away from Shamokin Dam.
Around 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the south of Shamokin Dam is Harrisburg, an important regional city which is home to Broad Street Market, Dorothea Dix Library and Museum and City Island. If you have time to spare, be sure to check out Wildwood Park, Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and National Civil War Museum before heading back to Shamokin Dam.
Visitors with an interest in history will enjoy the region's fascinating traditional villages.
Tap into the knowledge of the locals and take one of the winery tours.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time return home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Williamsport, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north.
