Cook Forest

Discover Cook Forest

Men’s Journal calls Cook Forest State Park “The Best Old-Growth Forest” in America and it is home to some of the tallest trees in northeastern U.S. The picturesque Wild & Scenic Clarion River, the Forest Cathedral of ancient pines, the panoramic view at Seneca Point, and the many events at the Sawmill Center for the Arts make Cook Forest one of the top state parks in the nation.  Each June, the sights and sounds of the French Indian War Encampment and battle re-enactments fill the forest. There are many places to stay, restaurants, kayak and canoe rentals, horse stables, and fun things to do in the area surrounding the park.
