We went to the park for camping the Labor Day weekend. It is a really nice place. The place is safe and clean. The families camping here are friendly. I couldn't figure out any drawbacks of staying here for a weekend. Boating and fishing here is fantastic. If you don't have a boat, you could rent it here at a... More

Promise land as the name goes is truly a beautiful and serene state park. The lake, trails and the beach...one can spend days in this state park without getting bored. We camped in the Deerfield campground and enjoyed it very much. Very clean park with nice showers and nice beaches for kids to play and for adults to canoe, kayak.... More

Wonderful state park where we camped out in tents over the weekend. Very safe as you will see park rangers making their runs throughout the day and night (they are very discreet so as not to disturb anyone). The bathrooms are so well maintained and clean, they are almost spotless Very family friendly and who doesn't love a couple of... More

We have stayed here multiple times and never have been disappointed. Pickeral Point was newly remodeled. Lower Lake is in great shape. It is one of those parks you purposely plan you trip to try to stay there. We have 24ft class C. Very wooded and quiet. Bathhouses are well maintained. Highly recommend to all.

Great state park. Clean water for swimming, nice picnicking areas, canoe rentals, great trails for hiking through mountain laurel and rhodies. Slightly off the beaten path allows for safe biking riding along roads. Camping site was average. Clean, modern facilities a nice bonus.

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!
