We haven't been here in a number of years but just made a trip last week. It is even better than before! The have expanded the beach area along the shore which allows much less crowding for swimmers and sun-lovers. The park is kept clean and this is in part to the people who go and pay attention to the... More

Our family has been coming to Promised Land State Park for nearly 50 years. Its difficult to know where to begin with the natural beauty of the area, the wildlife, the water activities or the hiking. We did everything possible during our last visit. We participated in three organized activities with Allison the new park Naturalist, fished every day (lots... More

A good time to get away from it all. Such a large lake, with a road that you can bike on with very little traffic ( 3 cars in 4 hours ). Lots of flowers, scenery, and nature to relax you!

OMG what a gorgeous day to be out on the lake in a paddle boat last Saturday. The weather was perfect and the view just awesome. We had a great time in the paddle boat. Had a tough time deciding what to rent - kayaks, paddle boat, row boat, canoe, they had it all at reasonable prices (but no credit... More

If you enjoy biking, hiking, fishing, campfires, and water sports than this is the getaway for you. The nicest and cleanest bathrooms and showers at a state park. So many hiking trails and areas to bike that you can't do it all in a weekend. Pet and family friendly with educational programs that are very interesting.

Great campsite.. We camped in one of the electric sites in the lower lake campground. The facilities were remarkable. Bathroom, Shower Area, Wash Basins, Dump Site, Extra parking space nearby. Enough space between adjacent tent sites. The state park seemed to preserved the nature so well.. Loved it.

My 8yo son and I spent three nights here in August 2013...and we both cried a little to leave. It was a beautiful, magical time that we'll both treasure. The gorgeous weather helped (I think the temperature topped out at 80 degrees, which is a godsend in mid-Atlantic August), but the park itself is just lovely. The lake is clear... More

The Promised Land State Park is located in North Eastern Pennsylvania. This is the first Pennsylvania State Park and campgrounds that we have visited. We found this park and campgrounds to be a gem. If large, wooded private, camp sites, fire rings, quiet, clean facilities that include hot showers are appealing then you will love this camping area. Camp sites... More

My husband and I visited the Promised Land State Park during the Memorial Day weekend. The area was quiet and peaceful even for holiday weekend. We discovered that this place is a breath of fresh air especially for us, city dwellers that we are. We enjoyed a leisurely walk around the Conservation Island at the heart of the park. The... More

My family has enjoyed camping here for many many years. We normally choose the lower lake tent sites but all the other areas are nice as well. Lower lake is further away from the lake beach so you have to ride your bike or drive to go swimming at the lake. The bathrooms are large, modern and clean. The trails... More
