We took the trail that went all around the lake. It was great weather, shady, with a small breeze. The trail is open and easy to walk, and is nice if you are in the mood for a not-too-taxing afternoon stroll.

The area was very scenic and expansive so You can hike around. If you like wildlife, there is plenty of that. Keep a eye out for porcupines. I never knew they were native to the poconos. Really, I liked everything about the park.

Clean campground with some very nice campsites, and some not so well suited to tent camping. Our first site was set up with most of it being large-ish sharp-edged stones. Not very good for tent camping, but fine for camper/RV, I'm sure. We moved to a different site that was quite spacious and grassy - much better. The lake was... More

Tobyhanna State Park is sure to bring adventure to your day. We have gone fishing on the fishing pier with our two children, we have walked the trails, picked berries (during picking season), swam in the beach, picnicked and had play dates. There's a 5 mile loop that goes around the whole lake. Bring bug spray and plenty of water... More

Exceptionally clean and well maintained facility. I have not camped there but the camping facilities look great. I live nearby and go there very often to fish and hike. Fishing is average, beach is sand and clean, water is clean (usual brackish color from the swamp that feeds the lake but is excellent quality), restrooms/changing facilities are kept very clean...

I enjoyed the Tobyhanna State Park & Lake area while I try to do some recreational fishing. The parking area for the Handicapped is also available so disabled fishermen can also enjoy some fishing.

Did all of the Lakeside Trail (blue trail) today. It's a pleasant 5-mile walk around the lake. Note that the "Lakeside" name is kind of a misnomer. Though you can see the lake on some of the South portion of the trail, it's not visible for most of the trail. That's okay - it's a very pleasant walk through the... More
