Elk Country Visitor Center

The Elk Country Visitor Center will be CLOSED March 17 through April 30, 2020.
Governor Wolf and DCNR Secretary Dunn announced the closure of all state park and forest facilities effective March 17, 2020 through April 30, 2020.  All training and organized programming at the Elk Center will also remain closed through the end of April.

The Elk Country Visitor Center is a World Class destination that sees an upward of 480,000 visitors every year. We occupy 245 acres of well managed forage that is optimal for Elk Viewing. Our 4-D theater is a great way to immerse yourself in the history of the elk as well as a four season journey through the eyes of an elk. Many surprises await you in our sensory theater. We also have three easily accessible trails that are centrally located for optimal viewing. The covered wagon tour is a 45 minute guided tour throughout our 245 acres that tells a great conservation story as well as optimal elk viewing. The Con-Ed staff at the Center offer many different programs to meet each group’s specific interest.   The Center is a smoke free, pet free facility.  Click HERE for our policies.
