Delaware State Forest totals 83,519 acres in Pike, Monroe, Northampton, and Carbon counties. Named for the Delaware River, the forest is characteristic of the Pocono region, with remote glacial lakes and bogs rich with plants, wildlife and scenic beauty.  


Road Resurfacing
As part of PPL Electric Utilities' commitment to DCNR for use of forestry roads, a contractor will resurface roads affected by PPL's Susquehanna-Roseland Project during July and August.
Road closures will be necessary according to the following schedule:
Beaver Run Road – July 28 – 29
Highline Spur Road – July 30
High Knob Road – July 29 – August 4
Hobday Road – July 31 – August 3, and again on August 11 – 13
Pine Flats Road – August 10 – 11, and again on August 20 – 25
Highline Road – Full length closure August 4 – 7, then the northern half only until August 10, and the southern half only between August 14 – 19.
We appreciate your cooperation with this project.  Any questions may be directed to PPL's Allentown office at 610-774-5341. Read PPL's letter to forest camp lease holders.
 

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.
