This small community is home. The welcoming feeling is an escape for anyone. The community holds the Loyalsock Creek, Worlds End State Park, and much more. I recommend anyone and everyone to visit Forks Township and all of Sullivan County, Pennsylvania.

As a current teenage resident of Forks Township, I can say that Forks is your typical Pennsylvanian suburb. Forks is unique, however, in that you can either be squeezed in with multiple neighbors, or have only a few. There are remote areas of the township being built more and more, with new developments springing up every year or so.
I moved to Forks Township a little over a year ago. Small town outside of Easton. People are very nice (everyone knows everyone), quiet, neighbors look out for one another.
