fall landscape

"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanates from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews
a weary spirit." -
Robert Lewis Stevenson

The 250-acre Mill Cove Environmental Area in Tioga County showcases North Central Pennsylvania’s beautiful landscape, with sweeping views, lush vegetation, a thriving trout stream, and abundant wildlife. Mill Cove borders two million acres of public land, including Pennsylvania WILDS, State Game Lands, and the Tioga Reservoir. It is a peaceful and inspiring location for those who treasure the outdoors.

Mill Cove welcomes group outdoor events such as target shooting competitions and Boy Scout and Girl Scout camping retreats. Environmental and biology classes at nearby Mansfield University use the site as an outdoor laboratory and learning center.

The Mill Cove Environmental Area is owned by the Army Corps of Engineers and leased by Mill Cove, Inc., a nonprofit corporation formed to enhance the area for recreational and environmental education purposes.  Future plans call for the addition of an Environmental Education Center along with restrooms, campsites, improved driveway and parking facilities, trails, shooting ranges, and canoe and boating facilities.

"As an educator and outdoorsman, the promise and possibilities of the Mill Cove Environmental Area inspired me to join its Board of Directors. Now 10 years later, I am more passionate than ever about our project and its value to the environment and the future of the area."

Charlie Fox
Chairman, Mill Cove, Inc.
