My dad and I stopped here before getting to our cabin in Elk County about an hour away. It was a little confusing/hard to find. The gps took us behind the building to private parking, so we parking in the grocery store parking lot down the street and walked down. The visitor center is a small little room right as you walk in the building. Not much there, but the woman that helped us was amazing! I told her the things we wanted to do, she recommended a few things to us and even drew us directions on a map. She was very kind and answered all of my questions! It's easy to miss, but if you are new to the area or have any questions this is the place to stop first. Glad we did!

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.

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.

I made this my first stop in the area. The bureau is housed in the old post office building which is cool. I had just planned to browse the brochures and pick up what looked interesting, but a woman at her desk came out to greet me with a big smile. She asked the right questions to determine my interests and provided everything I needed for the trip. She was very knowledgeable about the area and offered suggestions for lunch in town.

We did this 29-mile scenic drive on October 19th. Unfortunately, it was really past prime foliage time; it was a nice drive, but we assume it would've been better the weekend before. We stopped at two great overlooks-- Rimrock Overlook and Jakes Rocks, and got wonderful views and some nice photos!

The wonderful staff member at the visitor's center spent a lot of time with us, ongoing over major sites, hikes, scenic views, and places to eat. She highlighted everything on a large map, and basically developed a complete itinerary for us. As a result of her knowledge and skills, we had a wonderful experience at Allegheny National Forest, and look forward to returning.

This park is a family favorite for over 50 years and a few generations. This year in particular they were having an extra form signed to make campers aware of the bears this year as thera are many. A great place to visit.

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.
