Cook Forest State Park

The 8,500-acre Cook Forest State Park lies in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania. Once called the “Black Forest,” the area is famous for its stands of old growth forest. Cook Forest’s “Forest Cathedral” of towering white pines and hemlocks is a National Natural Landmark. The Clarion River connects Clear Creek State Park to Cook Forest State Park along a scenic 10-mile stretch of river which is popular for canoeing and rafting.

This trip was amazing! The Clarion River is beautiful. Dale Luthringer is a tremendous guide. I learned a lot about the history of the river as well as information on trees, plants, and wildlife. The river level was perfect. Dale prepared a great lunch for us and had a spot on the riverbank scouted out for our picnic. Every detail was taken care of thanks to Dale's experience. Dale is not only a great naturalist he will also help you with any paddling skills you need help with. Wow!
