Hunting and Firearms

Due to the park's small size, hunting is prohibited in the park. Hunters frequently camp in the park and walk to the Forbes State Forest lands that are adjacent to the park. Common game species are:

  • Deer
  • Turkey
  • Black bear

Use extreme caution with firearms at all times. Other visitors use the park during hunting seasons. Firearms and archery equipment used for hunting may be uncased and ready for use only in authorized hunting areas during hunting seasons.

In areas not open to hunting or during non-hunting seasons, firearms and archery equipment shall be kept in the owner’s vehicle or enclosed trailer. Exceptions include:

  • Law enforcement officers
  • Individuals with a valid Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms are authorized to carry a firearm concealed on their person while they are within a state park

Complete information about hunting rules and regulations in Pennsylvania is available from the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
