The heart of Pennsylvania’s free roaming elk herd can be found in the small community of Benezette. Benezette is part of the Elk Scenic Drive, a 127 mile excursion through some of central Pennsylvania’s most rugged and beautiful country.




Visit Benezette to see the amazing 700 pound bull elk that are frequently seen along the roadways or even in the resident’s backyards! There are also designated elk viewing areas which provide beautiful views of the area and the opportunity to see groups of elk on the hillsides.

Spend the morning elk viewing and then stop in the Elk Country Visitor Center to learn about the history of elk in Pennsylvania, conservation efforts and more. The center features interactive exhibits to delight both young and old including a 4D interactive story theater.
