Get ready for a fun-filled Summer in the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors! We have plenty of suggestions for your family vacation or short getaway from your everyday life.
Endless opportunities for cooling off in the hot summer heat! Explore one of the nationally designated Wild & Scenic rivers (the Clarion and the Allegheny) by canoe, kayak, or tube. Water skiers will love the lakes offering unlimited horsepower and you can’t beat the scenery! Drop your line in one of the clean mountain streams, we have a large variety of fish including walleye, catfish, trout, and many more!
- Attention shutterbugs! Grab your cameras and hit the trails. Our area boasts many scenic vistas and overlooks including Beartown Rocks and Brady’s Bend. You will definitely want to check out the Mountain Laurel around May or June to witness the state flower during full bloom! Share your photos on our facebook page.
- Horsing Around! The horses want to stretch their legs too! Experience the Great Outdoors on horseback. Outfitters and guides provide enjoyable experiences for all levels of riders. View elk and other wildlife while horseback riding. Camping is also available along with an equestrian friendly Bed & Breakfast!
