Rothrock State Forest is named for Dr. Joseph Trimble Rothrock, a native of Mifflin County and the Commonwealth’s first forestry commissioner. He is recognized as the “Father of Forestry” in Pennsylvania. Rothrock State Forest comprises 96,975 acres that spread across the rugged ridges of Huntingdon, Centre and Mifflin counties.


Road Closures

Rehab work on the Crowfield Road bridge at Penn Roosevelt State Park will start June 23. A detour through the camping area at Penn Roosevelt will be established.  This work is anticipated to last 2 months.

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.
