Codorus is great for hiking, fishing, boating, and just relaxing. There are restrooms, but no eating facilities, so pack your lunch. Bring your camera as there are abundant birds and other wildlife throughout the park.

A really nice State Park. They have a large swimming area, although usually crowded with a lot of kids. They have a large lake and will rent boats and canoes. Great place to take the kids and have a nice picnic.

How much does it cost to rent a kayak?

Response from Debbie V | Reviewed this property |
I think it is 17.00 for first hour and 10.00 for every hour after. Tandem kayaks are more, but I am not sure of the price. I have my own kayak, so I had to pay to launch for a year.
