My family has been coming here for over 50 yrs. (me just 32). A lot of changes have happened over the years since then, but it still has the rustic feel with just enough modernization”. JU- OH

Clarion River History, Part II
The earliest use of the Clarion River through the Cooks Forest Cabins area was a main transportation link. The lumber industry used the river to build 100 foot rafts of harvested logs to float to the market in Pittsburgh. The river was a sink for sediment from reckless logging jobs, discharge from tanneries and paper mills and acidic drainage from coal mines. Extensive erosion and sedimentation resulted from clear-cutting the river valley. In 1909 it was believed the river in the Cook Forest area was the most polluted in Pennsylvania.
The logging and coal industries have been cleaned by numerous regulations. The tanneries are all now gone and the paper mills take care of their waste products. A testament to the amazing recovery of the Clarion River was in 1998, the awarding of the “Wild and Scenic” designation by Congress. The river has now transformed into one of the cleanest in the East. Numerous species of fish now thrive in the Clarion River as it flows thru Cook Forest State Park.
