Clearfield County serves as a gateway to the Pennsylvania Wilds, a rural 12-county region with as much public land as Yellowstone National Park and virtually unlimited outdoor recreation opportunities - beautiful rivers, forests, robust wildlife, rich oil and lumber history and authentic small towns.
Whether it is birding, biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, sight-seeing, geocaching, golfing, swimming, or cross-country skiing that catches your fancy, you can do it in Clearfield County. The All-American town of Clearfield is the county seat, named for the "clear fields" made by the large number of bison that once inhabited the area.
Clearfield, one of I-80's best kept secrets, is a perfect overnight stop. Visitors may discover us by accident but when they do, they want to come back.
