Advisories for Delaware State Forest

Pecks Pond Update

DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry is working to improve recreational opportunities at Pecks Pond while sustaining the ecological integrity of the lake ecosystem.

The initial job conference was conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services on Sunday, April 14, 2019. A contractor will begin work on or before Friday, April 19, 2019, with estimated completion in April 2020.

The public will be excluded from the fenced construction area until after restoration. The access road and foot bridge will be an active construction site within the secured area.

Portions of the Edgemere-Pecks Pond Snowmobile Trail will be closed to riding during the project. Updated maps will be available prior to the 2019-2020 snowmobile riding season.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call  570-895-4010.

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.
