Fishing Creek South Nature Preserve
Lancaster County Conservancy Nature Preserve
167 acres of mature forest in Drumore Township features the Fishing Creek stream corridor, a DEP-designated high-quality cold water fishery with one of the only remaining natural wild trout populations in Lancaster County. A number of trails and a dirt road run through the preserve making for wonderful nature walks.
This interesting site has an uninterrupted lush forest canopy, wildflowers and a unique history. An Underground Railroad station was located on a nearby farm, along with the ruins of an African American schoolhouse. Several mills were believed to be located along Fishing Creek, including Long’s sickle and scythe mills, which produced noteworthy tools in the early 1800s. The preserve is managed by the Lancaster County Conservancy.
This nature preserve is open to hunting and has designated hunting and no-hunting zones. All Pennsylvania Game Commission Rules and Regulations apply.
