Day Hiking
Oct 2020 • Couples
Stopped at the Visitors Bureau before starting our hiking for the day. They were very knowledgeable and helped plan to maximize our time without backtracking. Inspite of the rain, we had a lovely time and the leaves were still pretty colors.

Great Photos
Jul 2020 • Friends
I absolutely love the Allegheny National Forest. We stopped at the Kinzua Visitor Center but it was closed due to Covid. Amazing photographs from this area overlooking the river and forests. Enough parking too. Worth the stop on the way to or from the dam.

information center for Alleghenies
Aug 2019
This is one of many visitor centers giving information about the Allegheny and region. It is not part of the Forest Service, but promotes local commerce. It gives decent information, but is geared mostly toward commercial activities, as opposed to the USDA Forest Service ranger stations (also attracting visitors), that gives information on trails, permitting, access points, regulations, etc.

The Ladies here are Fantastic. Not only do the promote tourism, but help the local businesses too. It is a great place to find different things to do in the McKean County Area. I’ve lived here over twentyfive years and they still show me things I didn’t know about.

Helpful place to stop for information before visiting the Allegheny National Forest.
Oct 2018 • Solo
I stopped here before traveling to the Allegheny National Forest and Turina who was working in the office went over the maps and drew me places to visit and camp. The only thing she did not warn me about is about the killer ducks at a pond on SR346 right before the Marilla Bridge. I must have been the first person to stop that morning and they are used to being fed because when I had nothing to give them they attacked me and then chased me down the road! If you pass there and decide to stop make sure you got something for them. LOL

Very knowledgeable and helpful

We stopped in figuring it would be a wall of brochures. We were completely surprised when the employee mapped out a suggested route to take and provided brochures for all of the recommended stops. She was excellent! We would suggest everyone stopping by this area to check out the visitors bureau.

Visiting the Pennsylvania Wilds
Jul 2018 • Couples
While staying in Bradford, Pa. and visiting the wilds, I noticed the Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau nearby. My wife and I went in and were met by friendly staff. The lady asked us what we were interested in doing and highlighted a map of the area - describing the places we might want to visit. The descriptive area map was then given to us and was very helpful for our travels in the area. I highly recommend stopping in - the staff is knowledgeable and their suggestions will save you a lot of time.

Very helpful information right downtown Bradford
Apr 2018 • Couples
It took us a bit of effort to find this center since there is no signage outside the post office building indicating it is here, but once inside, the attendant, Bri, did an excellent job of providing us with the information we needed to fit our interests. Reading other reviews, there seems to be some confusion between this location in town and the information center at the Kinzua Bridge.

Thank you for the review. I thank you for the comments regarding signage, we are working on new signage for the front of the building. I would welcome your suggestion as to how we can differentiate our Welcome/Visitors Center from the Kinzua Bridge Visitors Center, we have been thinking of just referring to the building at the state park as the Kinzua Bridge Center or the Kinzua Center. I am pleased Bri was helpful, and I hope you had a good time exploring our area.
