Do not bring firewood from home to the Allegheny National Forest. You could unwittingly spread the emerald ash borer, sirex wood wasp, hemlock woolly adelgid or other firewood borne invasive species. Possession of firewood from outside the area of the Allegheny National Forest is prohibited. Firewood is available at or near camping facilities.
Water tests at Twin Lakes and Loleta swim areas now indicate that the water is safe to swim in. They were closed on August 15, 2015 due to E. coli in the water. All four beaches on the ANF are now open.
The swim water on the Allegheny National Forest’s four beaches are tested weekly by a certified lab during the summer.
The ANF's Marienville RD has temporarily closed approximately 5-1/2 miles of Forest Service Road 131 between State Road 3002 north to the Forest Service Road 228 intersection. The road was closed because of concerns that a slump in the road may expand following the recent heavy rains.
Forest Service Road 131 will also be closed to dispersed camping, but the Loleta Campground is open. Engineering crews are monitoring the road and will begin repairs as quickly as possible.
For additional information, please contact the Marienville Ranger District at 814.927.5700.
