This is a beautiful state park with many attractions. Many, many different lodges/cabins to stay in. Tons of things for kids to do: water slides, go-kart races, horseback riding, deer park, etc. One of my family's favorite things to do was tube down the river, stop part way to picnic, then continue on down the river.

Cook Forest State Park is the second most visited state park in PA, second only to Presque Isle on Lake Erie. Wonderful forest, many different species of wildlife including eagles, bear, deer, bobcat, river otter, turkey and the list goes on. A very relaxed atmosphere in which to unwind, A great Clarion River to enjoy canoeing, kayaking, tubing or just... More

Loved hiking the trails, especially the Longfellow and the Cordouroy! 18 inches of snow made the forest spectacular!

Trails are very well marked. Hiking was fantastic. Peaceful and beautiful. Nothing is marred by man. Huge trees that have never been cut. Awesome.

Just seeing the huge trees worth trip. Lots of hiking trails thru old growth forest. Found one bike path in brief visit but only rode 1.5 miles. Neat log cabin with displays. Fall colors spectacular.
