Visit our Shops
Products made by PA Wilds artisans can also be found at stores called PA Wilds Conservation Shops. These shops are tied to state parks in the PA Wilds, providing opportunities for you to “take home a piece of the PA Wilds” while exploring some of the region’s top destinations.
PA Wilds Conservation Shops
PA Wilds Conservation Shop at Kinzua Bridge State Park
Allegheny National Forest + Surrounds
The inaugural PA Wilds Conservation Shop opened at Kinzua Bridge State Park in August 2016. After exploring the height and hikes surrounding the Kinzua Skywalk, meander through the visitor center to visit the Conservation Shop and enjoy educational displays about the location’s history. This is a must-see destination in the Allegheny National Forest + Surrounds landscape of the PA Wilds. The PA Wilds Conservation Shop at Kinzua Bridge offers many products that are specific to the area, such as t-shirts, postcards, magnets, pins and artwork that reflect the history and beauty of the bridge, along with many other products from around the PA Wilds region. This gift-giving destination is perfect for all kinds of travelers, whether you live in the PA Wilds or are just visiting. The visitor center is open year-round with seasonal hours.
PA Wilds Conservation Shop at Hills Creek State Park
Pine Creek Valley + PA Grand Canyon
The second PA Wilds Conservation Shop is temporarily located at Hills Creek State Park for Summer 2023. Located in scenic Tioga County, the 407-acre Hills Creek State Park abounds in wildlife. Osprey, loon and waterfowl visit the lake that boasts a variety of warm-water fish species. Camping, cabins, swimming and picnicking make this an ideal spot for a family vacation.
The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk. The PA Wilds Conservation Shopmobile unit is open Thursdays through Mondays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. next to the concessions.
Currently closed for the 2023 season.
Experience our Landscapes
The PA Wilds region is a large region covering a quarter of the Commonwealth. Our communities share a rich lumber, conservation and cultural heritage. However, there are also sub-regions in the PA Wilds, known as Landscapes, that have their own unique character and place-specific experiences. Each of our Landscapes has its own remarkable assets and identity. And they can make your trip planning (and shopping) even easier!
