Lackawanna State Forest is named after the Native American phrase, "a place where the river forks." The forest's 32,000 acres blanket more than a few of the mountains near the confluence of the Susquehanna and Lackawanna rivers, thus its moniker. Tracts are located in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties.

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.
