Muddy Creek Oil Field
222 Camelot Rd., Portersville, PA 16051 GET DIRECTIONS
Local: 724-368-8084
Historic oil well demonstrations scheduled throughout the summer and fall. This original oil well site has been preserved and restored within Moraine State Park. The mechanism is powered by a one cylinder Bessemer gas engine now runs on propane which pulls the rod lines through a "Bessemer #2 Power" just like the old days. The exhibitis open to the public and operating on seasonal demonstration days. Access to the well site can be obtained by taking Old Route 422 west from the Prospect interchange and proceeding about ½ mile beyond the DCNR District Office and boat launch area parking lot.
