Admission to PA state parks and forests is free. Help us keep it that way by being good stewards for these public lands. Please leave all plants, animals, minerals, historic sites, structures and exhibits as you see them for others to enjoy. Practice Carry-in, Carry-out and Leave No Trace ethics. • In some instances, state parks and state forest regulations differ. Please visit the state park or forest office for a full list, or find them at www.dcnr.state.pa.us.

free with very few exceptions. Please obtain a camping permit first from the district office.

• Please keep pets on a leash in state parks. Certain state parks allow pets in campgrounds.

• Our state parks and forests are open daily, year-round. State parks’ day-use hours are from sunrise to sunset. Most state forest roads receive no winter maintenance, and some are closed.

• Alcoholic beverages are prohibited on state park lands and state forest picnic areas. • Thousands of miles of trails weave throughout the state parks and

forests. To protect the environment, managers designate certain trails as off-limits to some uses. Please observe posted signs, and stay on designated trails where they exist. • You need to obtain either a DCNR launching permit or PA boat registration to use our lakes and rivers.

FIREWOOD ALERT! Invasive insects are attacking vast swaths of Pennsylvania’s forests. To help stop their spread, please do not bring firewood into the parks and forests, only burn wood purchased from the park or local sources, and please burn ALL your firewood before leaving your camp or picnic site. This helps to prevent this serious threat.

• State park reservations can be made online at www.visitPAparks.com or by calling (888) PA-PARKS. Camping in state forests is
