Lawrence L. Knoebel Bridge is located in Knoebel's Grove Amusement Park and spans the South Branch of Roaring Creek, connecting Cleveland Township, Columbia County, with Ralpho Township, Northumberland County. The park is located at the County line, off Pennsylvania Route 487 between Catawissa and Elysburg.

This bridge was originally constructed over West Creek, near Benton, Columbia County, in 1881 by J. J. McHenry at a cost of $348.00. In 1936 it was sold to H. H. Knoebel and Sons for $40.00.
