Needmore is in south-central Fulton County, at the intersection of U.S. Route 522 (Great Cove Road) and Route 655 (Thompson Road) in Belfast Township. US 522 leads south 7 miles (11 km) to Interstate 70 at Warfordsburg and northeast 13 miles (21 km) to McConnellsburg, the Fulton County seat. PA 655 leads south 9 miles (14 km) to the Maryland border (the Mason–Dixon line). Hancock, Maryland, is 11 miles (18 km) south via PA 655 and 12 miles (19 km) south via US 522.

The community is in the valley of Tonoloway Creek, a south-flowing tributary of the Potomac River. The north end of Tonoloway Ridge rises just south of Needmore.

Geology[edit]

The Devonian geologic formation called the Needmore Formation is named after the town of Needmore.[2]
