Winter in Crawford County

The best winter has to offer.

As a neighbor of Lake Erie, you might already know that Crawford County gets its fair share of deep snow and frigid temperatures every winter. What you might not know is that we don’t spend this time hibernating here! Come to Crawford County to experience the best winter has to offer. Don’t miss the annual Winter Ice House Park Festival at Conneaut Lake, where you can find incredible ice sculptures, live music, historic exhibits, and even a delicious chili cook-off. Both Pymatuning State Park and the Ernst Trail offer cross country skiing for all of the snow bunnies, plus a 900 ft long tubing experience at the Avalanche Xpress! The Meadville Area Recreational Complex (MARC) offers family deals on ice skating and curling all season long, with opportunities for parties and lessons too.

During the height of the holiday season, head to Port Farms to cut down your own Christmas tree, then cozy up in Santa’s Workshop with some hot cocoa while the kids decorate cookies and ornaments. You can also hop on a Christmas Carriage Ride during Meadville’s Light-Up Night celebration or join the Santa Express on a ride through Oil Creek State Park or take a boat tour around Pennsylvania’s largest natural glacier lake during the Conneaut Lake “Trees of Light” tour. Make the most of the snowy season with Crawford County.
