​Advisories for Tioga State Forest

Heavy Truck traffic advisory

There will be heavy truck traffic on Baldwin Run Rd, Matson Trail, and Oak Ridge Trail potentially through late December due to gas development activity. Trucks will be limited to hauling between 6:00 P.M. and 4:00 A.M. on opening days of firearms bear and deer hunting seasons, along with other anticipated busier hunting days to minimize conflicts with hunters accessing state forest land. Questions can be directed to the district office at 570-724-2868.


Due to a recent landslide, the Owassee Road in Shippen Township, Tioga State Forest, Tioga County, will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice.

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.
