Whether you’re looking to get away from it all, for outdoor adventures, or a taste of the rural life, Clinton County’s got it all and then some! We’ve got the great outdoors – more than 60 percent of the County is state land, available for public use. The region boasts a network of trails, state parks, forests and game lands, 
the Susquehanna River, streams and lakes. You can also enjoy sights and attractions ranging from breath-taking overlooks, to shopping for Amish and “English” handcrafted items, to local festivals, historical sites, a local barn theatre featuring professional actors, and outdoor concerts every weekend all summer long!

Clinton County is an easy drive from most points in the northeast United States, and there are plenty of choices for great food and a comfortable place to stay.
We’re a gateway to the Pennsylvania Wilds region. Whether you’re coming for a weekend, or staying for the week, you’ll find plenty to see and do for the whole family. Read on and start planning your visit! If you have questions, we’re a phone call away at: (570)748-5782
