Just the beginning to a beautiful drive thru the mountains

The Bald Eagle State Forest hosts all the major game species typically found in Pennsylvania, including deer, bear, wild turkey and other small game.

There are thirteen streams within the Bald Eagle District totaling 47 miles that are stocked and fishable. Particularly noteworthy are Penns Creek and Fishing Creek. Along the Mifflin County section of Penns Creek the Pennsylvania Fish Commission has established a "catch and release" stretch of stream where year-round trout fishing is permitted. Near Fishing Creek and the village of Lamar in Clinton County the Federal Fish and Wildlife Service maintains a fish hatchery for stocking the surrounding area.

Driving and walking for pleasure is a major outdoor recreational use of the forest. The District has 340 miles of drivable roads and about the same number of miles of trails. There are five designated scenic drives.

The Mid-State Trail traverses the District running northeast from the Route 322 roadside rest at the Centre-Mifflin county line, through R. B. Winter State Park to the village of McElhattan, southeast of Lock Haven in Clinton County.

There are 27 vistas within the Bald Eagle State Forest. They offer the forest user many and varied views of both the State owned and private land within and surrounding the District.

June 30 Awesome forest but.... by josh
Awesome forest but....a lot of these reviews are for Bald Eagle State Park. The state park has the lake with a rustic camping side. The state park is nice too, but the state forest is amazing!
May 9 Awesome
Love this place!
May 8 WE VISIT EVERY MEMORIAL WEEKEND by belinda
We have been camping here with the kids for over 18 yrs. The lake itself is a very good lake for Crappie. We camp on the rustic side and have always enjoyed our stay. Watch out for the raccoons they will eat your bait and get into your coolers at night.
July 27 Awesome by D3
We stayed at the rustic sites for Memorial Day weekend. The host family was wonderful, the bath-houses clean, the site was impecable. Everything was exactly as I had hoped it would be!
