Cook Forest State Park The 8,500-acre Cook Forest State Park and 3,136-acre Clarion River Lands lie in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania. Known for its stands of old growth forest, the park’s Forest Cathedral of towering white pines and hemlocks is a National Natural Landmark. A scenic 13mile stretch of the Clarion River flows through Cook Forest State Park and is popular for canoeing, kayaking, and tubing. Lodging Cook Forest State Park River Cabin 1 There are 11 old growth areas in the park, totaling more than 2,300 acres. Most stands are dominated by ancient hemlock and white pine, but also contain ancient under-story trees. Many white pine and hemlock trees in these areas approach 350 years old. Scientists believe these old growth areas began following a large forest fire in 1644. Some trees survived the fire and date back to the early 1500s.
