Lycoming County, PA, lies in the heart of north central Pennsylvania on the west branch of the Susquehanna River and is the gateway to the PA Wilds
. The largest county, by geographical area, in PA, Lycoming County is part of the Allegheny Mountain chain and contains many parks, state gamelands and forests as well as miles of rivers and streams. It is larger than the state of Rhode Island.
Williamsport, serving as the county seat, is also the home of Little League Baseball.
The west branch of the Susquehanna provides about 14 miles of navigable water making it perfect for canoeing, kayaking, water skiing and every other water sport imaginable. In addition, the Pennsylvania Fish Commission stocks three of the county's five major streams with trout and bass. One creek - Pine Creek - has a reputation for being one of the best trout fishing streams in the United States. For those who prefer dry land to water, Lycoming County contains 700,000 acres of parks. 300,000 of these acres are in the public trust. Pennsylvania's Little Pine State Park itself contains 2100+ acres with hiking trails, horseback riding trails and cross country skiing trails.
