Forest Cabins in the Poconos For Sale
Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources -
Bureau of Forestry has over 4,000 leased campsites across the state
of PA. A State Forest Leased Campsite is a small parcel of state
forest land of about approximately 10,000 Square feet leased to
an Pennsylvania resident individual or to a group of Pennsylvania
residents for them to have a cabin for recreation including camping,
hunting, lake activities and most other types of outdoor activities.
DCNR stopped leasing new campsites in 1970, but the existing leases
are still allowed to be utilized by the public. If you are interested
in obtaining a lease, you must find a cabin on a leased campsite
that is for sale, purchase it and request that the lease be transferred
to you. Rules for State Cabin leases. You must abide by the regulation
for use of the land as established by the state

The campsite leases are for 10 years. At the end of the 10 years
the lease is up for renewal and depending on the lessees compliance
with the lease agreement and the DCNR guidelines, the Department
will determine whether or not the lease should be renewed.
though the cabins on a leased campsite are privately owned, the
land is still public state forest land, and part of the State Forest
system. The DCNR requires all lessees to maintain their campsites
such that it is neat in appearance and does not drastically contrast
with the surrounding State Forest land.
The buildings on a state forest leased campsite are considered as
real estate for taxation purposes. Each lessee is responsible for
any annual local taxes that are assessed on the structures located
on a leased campsite.
Pennsylvania State Lease campsites and cabins on these campsites
are a great way for PA residents to enjoy their state forest lands.
