Welcome to the Borough of Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore is located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River in southern Lycoming County, and provides easy access to recreation opportunities along the River, Pine and Larrys Creeks, downhill and cross country skiing, trout fishing, hiking, mountain biking, camping, snowmobiling, hunting, outlet shopping at Woolrich and much more.

Jersey Shore is also close to nearby higher education and employment centers in Lock Haven and Williamsport.
