The Elk Country Visitor Center is a premier elk viewing location and home to the largest wild elk herd in the Northeastern United States. The Elk Country Visitor Center is a newly-built facility designed specifically to help you experience these majestic animals year round and to learn more about elk, other wildlife and this amazing ecosystem. The Center is managed and operated by the Keystone Elk Country Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit whos mission is "To conserve and enhance Pennsylvania's elk country for future generations". No state funding goes into the operation of the Center.
Elk are truly awesome creatures, and are an unforgettable sight for visitors to this special region of Pennsylvania.
This world-class, eco-friendly visitor center offers panoramic views, interactive exhibits, a 4-D immersive story theater, a fun gift shop, and a planned hands-on Discovery Room for younger visitors. Outside, you can explore well-tended wildlife trails, elk observation areas and viewing blinds. Just beyond our facilities you'll find the Pennsylvania Wilds, with over two million square miles of forests, rivers, trails, historic towns and sites.
We've created this website to provide a virtual glimpse of this exceptional new facility.
In it, you will find descriptions of the Visitor Center, interesting facts about elk and other wildlife attractions found here, and resources to help you plan your visit to Pennsylvania's unique Elk Country.
We hope to see you in person soon. *** Please use the address: 950 Winslow Hill Road in your navigation system.
