Cameron County

Discover Cameron County

Cameron County is a wild and wonderful outdoor paradise. Visitors looking to unplug from their busy lives are attracted to the area to connect with nature and unwind in the quiet mountains. The majority of the county is covered in lush forests and clear waterways provide rich habitat for bald eagles, magnificent elk, deer, bear, turkey, other wildlife, and a great variety of fish. Each spring, fishermen converge on the many streams in the area for the much anticipated opening of trout season and throughout the year the cold mountain waters provide some of the best fly-fishing in the state. With the arrival of autumn, hunters come to mountains the in search of plentiful wild game and to enjoy peaceful camp life.

Emporium

Emporium is the county seat and has many beautiful public art murals throughout the town. The new West Creek Trail connects Emporium with St. Marys. During the winter months the trail provides snowmobilers, riding the nearby state forest trails, easy access to downtown. There is also access for horseback riding on Thunder Mountain Equestrian Trail near Sizerville State Park. A sure sign of spring is the annual Cameron County Canoe and Kayak Classic in early April, which is one of the largest downriver paddling events in the state. Emporium also hosts a popular Big Foot Hunt during Weekend in the Wilds each July and rings in the holidays with Christmas in the Wilds.

Sinnemahoning & Driftwood

The Wildlife Center at Sinnemahoning State Park is a beautiful place to learn about the wild animals that inhabit this spectacular mountainous region. You can take a guided eagle spotting pontoon boat tour of the Stevenson Dam. The Bucktail Monument in Driftwood, pays tribute to the local soldiers of the 42nd Infantry, known at the Bucktails, who fought in the Civil War. The Little Museum in Driftwood was named one of “Pennsylvania’s Top 10 Seasonal Museums”.
