    Located principally in Elk and Cameron counties, Elk State Forest, comprised of 200,000 acres, is open to primitive camping, licensed hunting and fishing, and offers opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing.

    Primitive camping is overnight camping where all equipment is transported in limited trips by non-motorized vehicle methods and where a motorized vehicle is not located near or part of the camping experience. Primitive campers spending no more than one night at a campsite typically do not need a camping permit, with certain exceptions. Primitive camping is carry in, carry out.

    All trails are open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, unless posted closed. All trails with brochures are painted and cleared yearly. Contact the district office to find out which trails are best suited for your activity, for trail maps or self-guiding brochures and for camping permit information.
