Surrounded by 198,000-acre Bald Eagle State Forest, this is a small, 620-acre patch of woods surrounded by a whole lot more woods. You can find solitude here or use this as a base camp for a larger adventure. Nearby is the famous Penns Creek, Pennsylvania’s longest limestone trout stream and one revered by fly fishermen for its famous eastern green drake hatch. It holds wild brown trout and stocked fish too. There’s some decent stocked trout fishing to be had in 25-acre Poe Lake in spring as well. Poe Lake is also fun to paddle around in a canoe or kayak, especially early in the morning and right at dusk, when wildlife tends to be more active and a quiet approach is often the ticket to some up-close encounters.
