Pennsylvania's natural beauty
Nature Inn at Bald Eagle
Nestled in the very center of the state and the southernmost point of the PA Wilds is the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle State Park.
This new green building just achieved a Gold LEED rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Inn features natural surroundings and intrinsic green amenities. Birding is at prime at the Nature Inn, with a pair of bald eagles just across the lake. The Inn is also full of works by local artisans, from the stained glass in the lobby to the ceramic tiles integrated into the architecture. The Nature Inn is a PA Wilds treasure and a truly unique place to stay.
The Big Story Told Here
Two million acres of public lands, unsurpassed in natural beauty. Quaint towns awash in charm. The largest elk herd in the Northeastern United States. Welcome to the Pennsylvania Wilds – where discovery awaits.
You’ll find hundreds of miles of backpacking trails, bike paths, trout fishing streams, the Pine Creek Gorge (a.k.a. the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon), the Allegheny National Forest, and the darkest skies in the east at Cherry Springs State Park. Nestled among the forests, valleys, and pristine countryside are cozy lodgings, rustic campgrounds, unique artisans, and more to do than you’ll be able to fit into just one trip – a perfect reason to return. Interpretive signage along the Elk Scenic Drive tells of the region’s rich history and heritage.
