Named in honor of James Buchanan, 15th President of the United States, Buchanan State Forest covers 69,703 acres in Franklin, Fulton and Bedford counties. Buchanan’s woodlands straddle the iconic ridges of south-central Pennsylvania.

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.
