Prouty Place State Park is a Pennsylvania state park on in Summit Townshipmarker, Potter Countymarker, Pennsylvaniamarker in the United States. The park is southwest of Pennsylvania Route 44, along Long Tree Road, near Sweden Valley. The park provides access points for hiking, hunting and fishing in the Susquehannock State Forestmarker. It is a small rest area for hikers and other travellers to the wilds of Potter County.

Prouty Place was designated a Class "B" campground by the Pennsylvania Department of Forestry from 1922 to 1925. During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps built the current picnic area and former campsites between 1935 and 1938. Prouty Place State Park officially became part of the Pennsylvania State Parks system in 1957. No camping is allowed at the park today. The park is a short distance from the Susquehannock Trail System, and is connected to it by a link trail.

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.

As of 2009, Prouty Place State Park is tied for second smallest state park in Pennsylvania (Upper Pine Bottom State Parkmarker, a picnic area to the southeast in Lycoming Countymarker, is also only ). Only Sand Bridge State Parkmarker (another picnic area) is smaller.
