This place is really cool. I assume that kids would love it. The boulder field is amazing. The wildlife is nice too. We saw two bears.

A very nice park to visit in PA> In summer there is a nice lake with a sandy beach and facilities. Just have to check about lifeguards, as sometimes State funding ends up with them cutting guards. One 'must do' is a visit to Boulder Field. It's a deposit of boulders from the ice age, and is truly awesome to... More

The lake side beach is good. The state park is quite big and we were not able to cover the entire park, however, we went towards the lake side and had good time with friends. Wish we had more time to explore more...

This is the second time I have been here. It is truly a magnificent creation. It amazes me that this would be where it is at. I would come here again. I just wish that there was a t-shirt I could buy depicting the boulder field.

Have never seen anything like it. Amazing geology due to glacier age. Must do if you're in the area. Worth the 3+ mile down a 1 lane road to get there.

We had an afternoon to kill while visiting family in Hazelton and went to check out this park. The mid October colors of the forest were really beautiful and we enjoyed driving through the park which is free to do. From what we could tell you only have to pay if you are camping. There are plenty of trails and... More

My boyfriend and I went car camping in late September and it was a great experience. We stayed at the state park campground and the sites were well spaced and some were pretty secluded. The hiking and boulder field were really cool. I would recommend the Shades of Death Trail for the scenery. The campground store is great too- we... More

We stopped here while staying in the Poconos to specifically do some hiking. It had been raining in the morning so we didn't start till around 11. It was a Saturday but the trails were not very full. We went to the park office and got the trail map and took the Shades of Death trail that started right there.... More

Visited the park over the weekend and did the shadows of death trail. Sounds awful but it's a fairly easy hike with some pretty waterfalls scattered throughout. About a mile and a half round trip with lots of roots.. you must be attentive because it's very easy to trip. Otherwise a nice way to spend a little time outdoors. After... More
