This was a nice state park. The upper lake is very large and clean. We stayed at Pickeral Point Campground. I think the sites were a bit close together. We had our pop-up camper, which the sites are only along the road and not close to the lake. Between the road sites and the lake are the tent walk-in sites,... More

Dozens of beautiful trails that are very well-marked and are very well kept. The area isn't very developed which makes it all the more beautiful. We camped at this site for two nights. On one of the nights there was a talk by one if the rangers that the kids just loved. We felt the camp site was very decently... More

I don't know where to start, so I'll start when we arrived. First making reservation for a camping spot is a breeze, you just go on the website, find the spot you would like and reserve it. it is almost like selecting a seat on an airplane when you book your flight. We arrived early and they allowed us to... More

Stayed at promised land state park with a few friends over the weekend in mid august. We stayed at the walk in sites with lovely water views in the pickerell area campsite. Bathrooms were exceptionally clean & modern. I heard there were recent renovations. I have 2 complaints which were not too big a big deal, since everything else about... More

Visiting this park was one of the highlights of our vacation. It is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Nature at it's finest. We started with the trail on Conservation island. This was a short trail (about 1 mile loop I think) and fairly flat and easy. The natural beauty and views of the lake are wonderful. Don't miss this trail. Next... More
