The Allegheny National Forest is nicknamed, “the Natural Escape.” Most will tell you, when you enter the land of enchantment you can feel the stress melt away. Take a Kayak and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Allegheny River, fish Tionesta Creek, or play a round of golf at one of the mountain courses. Camping trips bring people together, remove you from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and let you go back to the basics for a few days. If you are looking for a great breakfast before your outdoor activities, search no farther than Station 61 Family Restaurant. It is here, where they take their time and give you a delicious homecooked meal.

Breakfast – Let us look at some of the locals’ favorites dishes. The “Fire Chief” features scrambled eggs, home fries, cheddar jack cheese, and is topped with sausage gravy and crumbled bacon. The “Lodge Breakfast Skillet” (captioned) has two extra large eggs scrambled with peppers and onions, your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham, and is topped with your choice of cheese and home fries and is served in your own cast iron skillet. Feeling super hungry? If you are looking for a massive portion, go with the “Hungry Man.” It consists of your choice of either two pancakes, or two two slices of French toast served with two eggs, and your choice of bacon, sausage links, or ham.

My Final Take

Those that make the trek to areas like Tionesta, Marienville, Tidioute, Franklin, and other areas of the Allegheny National Forest understand that it is truly a unique way of life. As you weave through the landscape you notice small town America at its finest. You notice piles of neatly stacked cord wood, large propane tanks, tractors, and other agricultural items to take care of resident’s houses, camps, and property. Stores and restaurants close early and family dinners are of the utmost importance. The sight of glowing campfires illuminates the landscape. Next time you are near the Warren area, go back in time and fuel up at Station 61 Family Restaurant!
