I know there are some High Power and long range matches held in those areas.

What type of competition are you interested in?

If your looking to go long range, there is always the Pennsylvania 1000 yard club.
You'd have to do a google search, as I don't have it right off the bat.

competitions

The NRA has an online magazine "Shooting Sports" that lists every registered competition in the USA by state in every shooting discipline. The list is found at the end of the magazine.
If you are interested in CAS matches, the North Mt. Sportsman's Club in Muncy Valley has a marvelous facility and a very active program.
http://www.northmt.com/

In addition, the Wilkes-Barrel Rifle and Pistol Club in Hunlock Creek has a full schedule of rifle and pistol matches, including a number a PA state championships.
