Patterson State Park is a Pennsylvania state park on in Summit Townshipmarker, Potter Countymarker, Pennsylvaniamarker in the United States. The park is on Pennsylvania Route 44 near Sweden Valley. The park has two rustic roadside pavilions.

History

The Pennsylvania Department of Forestry created "Patterson Picnic Area" from 1922 to 1925. During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps built two pavilions in the current picnic area from 1935 to 1941. Patterson State Park officially became part of the Pennsylvania State Parks system in 1950. The name is thought to come from people who lived in the area named Patterson, but there are no records of anyone named Patterson owning the land that is now part of the state park. In 2000 the park became part of the Hills Creek State Parkmarker complex, an administrative grouping of eight state parks in Pottermarker and Tioga counties.

Patterson State Park is surrounded by Susquehannock State Forestmarker. Visitors use the park as a trail head for hiking, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and snowmobiling.
