We just came back from the Poconos area and this park had outstanding views. Even though the water was frozen and the weather was very very cold, the area is very clean and beautiful and calm. Nice to relax and get cozy. A bit lonely, but I guess it was due to the cold weather.

This was my second time visiting a state park in the US. It was a holiday weekend parking was limited but we were able to find a spot quickly. The park was clean and the bathrooms were clean too. There were plenty of picnic benches available. Boats and kayaks can be rented. Kids can play on the playground. There were... More

This was my first visit to a state park in Pennsylvania. If this one is typical, they have an excellent state park system! It was very clean and well kept with new bathrooms and newly paved areas. We stayed in what they call a "camper cabin" ($45/night)(also seemed new), which is a cabin that has heat and electricity, beds, and... More

We have camped at many state parks, in multiple states, and rank this at the very top. The facilities are well maintained, recreational opportunities abound, the hiking trails are abundant, scenic and well marked, there is a high level of security, and the park is both child-friendly and pet-friendly. We stayed in a cabin and, while the cabin is designated... More

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.
