Many of the County Links
above will keep you specifically in Clarion County, in the Pennsylvania Wilds
of northcentral PA.
The Clarion and Allegheny Rivers provide many recreational and scenic areas within the county. The state parks and state game lands provide facilities for boating, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, and swimming.
The main function of Clarion, the County Seat, is to provide a base for the recreation available in the region. Clarion borders on the Piney Dam Reservoir, a deep, wide and six-mile long body of water, suitable for everything from fishing to water skiing. Upstream, as the Clarion River narrows back into a shallow stream, it runs through Cook Forest State Park.
In October, Clarion is the site of the Autumn Leaf Festival, a celebration that draws 500,000 people to the community, and has been held annually for more than 50 years. Craft shows, antique auto show, carnival, talent pageant, and food concessions all make the festival northeast Pennsylvania's premier rural festival.
