Black Cherry Interpretive Trail is a 1.6 mile trail beginning and ending near the lower campground loop. The two loops, one 1 mile loop and one .4 mile loop, circle the campground. The Black Cherry Trail also makes up the eastern end of the Twin Lakes Trail . The trail will take you through a valley with a small stream, that you will cross at one point. The Twin Lakes Trail connects to both the Mill Creek Trail and Brush Hollow Trail systems.

Twin Lakes was once the site of factory buildings, stores and row houses owned by the McKean Chemical Company which made wood alcohol. When McKean Chemical Company closed in the 1920s, the US Forest Service acquired the property.

In 1936, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed the present dam on Hoffman Run, creating the swimming impoundment. They built the lower campground, picnic area, pavilion and bathhouse.
