Wyoming State Forest was the name of the Pennsylvania State Forest in Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry District #20. As of July 1, 2005, a reorganization of Pennsylvania State Forests in eastern Pennsylvania resulted in the elimination of the name "Wyoming State Forest". The District #20 main office was located in Bloomsburg in Columbia County, Pennsylvania in the United States.

The state forest lands in Sullivan county became part of the new Loyalsock State Forest (still District #20), along with state forest lands in eastern Lycoming County (previously part of Tiadaghton State Forest) and Bradford County (previously part of Tioga State Forest).

Prior to the reorganization, the Wyoming State Forest was located in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania. District #20 used to include Columbia, southern Luzerne, Montour, Northumberland, and Sullivan counties.

After the reorganization, southern Luzerne County became part of District #11 (now part of Pinchot State Forest) while Columbia, Montour and Northumberland Counties became part of District #18 (now part of Weiser State Forest).
