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

Alan Seeger Picnic Area - Starting Wednesday, October 7 through Friday October 9th, the Alan Seeger Picnic Area parking lot, located in Jackson Twp. Huntingdon County, will be closed for the installation of a new restroom facility.   This closure is necessary to protect both the public and employees. The area will be gated and signs posted during this time period. In addition to the closure days, please be aware of additional work being completed to this site over the next week.  The maintenance staff of the Rothrock apologizes for this temporary inconvenience. 

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.
