This review regarding Promise Land State Park is only in reference to hiking. We went there with other couple, the entire hiking took around 6 hours. We got the map from the office, the place offers several hiking trials that go thru the woods and around the lake. The day we were there, there were not many people. If go... More

This is a really nice park with a really nice lake. The park is nice for hiking and camping. We enjoyed the hiking and went by the lake. The lake is filled with clear water and has a beach area. You can also kayak or canoe here. We went in the fall and the foliage was beautiful. If you love... More

Oh my... I had several ideas on how to start my review but couldn't chose which one would like to mention first. This is by far one of the nicest and wonderful place we camped at! We made a reservation online 6 months before the actual dates and had a little trouble to find seven consecutive dates for booking of... More

I've been in this park throughout the year since January 2013. We live only 3 miles from here so we visit frequently to cross-country ski, walk the trails & swim. The swimming beach is very nice with clear water. There are a Lot of rocks underfoot but you can usually see them so you don't hurt your feet. Water shoes... More

There is an area contiguous to Promised Land State Park, not far from exit 26 on Rt 84 for Rt 390 called Bruce Lake Natural Area. There is a beautiful lake that you can't get to by car, you have to hike in called Bruce Lake. Depending on which trail head you pick, you will also pass Egypt Meadow Lake.... More

This was by far our worst camping trip our family has taken so far. Let me just say the cabin we stayed in was "rustic." That's how they described it. We were very excited to go, but when we got there, the first thing we did was, of course, open the door, and a wave of musty smell hit us... More

Been coming here for about 25 years and plan to keep on going. We stayed at almost all sites and cabin's. It used to be better before parts of lower lake were shut down and now you have to set your rent up on a stone pad but its still a great park.

Loved this Park. Stopped on our way to Florida from New England to just enjoy the great outdoors. Stayed in the Beechwood section and was one of only 6-7 campers. Plenty of easy hikes and peace and quiet. Probably did 10-12 hikes and only saw 5-6 other hikers in total. We had only electric hook up. Bathrooms were spotless and... More

We camped here while passing through traveling on I84 and found a real gem. We would return and stay for days. The campsite we had on Pickerel Point had a full hookup, woods between our neighbors and a trail to the lake behind us. No wifi, no cable, no problem. Restrooms were clean and park rangers patrolled occasionally. There was... More
