Advisories for Clear Creek State Forest

Chronic Wasting Disease

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), which is an always fatal disease to deer and elk, has been detected in all or portions of the Clear Creek State Forest.

Hunters should be aware of special rules and regulations that apply to deer harvested within the Disease Management Area (DMA). It is recommended that those deer be tested for the disease.

Additional information about CWD can be found at the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture websites. In addition, the Pennsylvania Game Commission provides information about deer processors (PDF) in the DMA.

Road Closure Notice

Callen Run Road will be closed until further notice. The closure extends from Route 949 to the top of the hill.

Don’t Move Firewood

To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
