This is a truly beautiful park with a lovely large lake above an adorably quaint small town in the Poconos. The lake offers boat rentals and a large beach for swimming. Camping is also an option, but I've never taken advantage of that feature. my family like to just go up and walk the beautiful Switchback Trail (an old railroad... More

I always try to pick a different campground every year and this year with the main goal of white water rafting in mind, we decided on Mauch Chunk Lake Park. The location was easy to find and accurate on my gps. I also appreciated that there is a separate night entrance that can be used in case you check-in after... More

This is a great little place. Kayaking rentals are reasonable. Beautiful place to see fall leaves , hawk falls and boulder field are a quick drive, and Leighton gorge trail head is just outside of town - makes a great day hike , but be careful lots of snakes in the rocks

We tent camped here in early August. The kids swam in the lake. We rented a canoe and generally speaking had a nice time. My only complaint is the campsites are very close together and there is no noise enforcement. Some sites played loud music and had uncontrollable children yelling loud late into the evening after the 10pm quiet hours.... More

The best thing about the place is the lake. There is a small beach by the lake and has a marked area for swimming. The beach is very clean and is especially beautiful in the night. The place is great for camping with nice and clean facilities. Will visit again for sure!!!

Great place to camping! Beautiful lake, playground, beach volleyball court, boat and kayak rentals. Don't expect to be in a resort, the facilities is not that great, but it is good for a camping ground. We definitely going back this summer, so much things to do. We had so much fun!!!

Not sure why this is listed as a hotel. Maybe because there is a campground here? My family travels to Jim Thorpe often but we only recently traveled up to Mauch Chunk Lake Park. I only wish we had gone sooner. We went in December right after it had snowed. The snow shoeing was excellent. Such beautiful scenery! It was... More

We camped here two nights while visiting Jim Thorpe. The park was clean and well maintained. The bathroom was one of the cleanest I've seen! Showers were hot. We had site 100 on the lake. The sites are close to each other but it wasn't a problem. Would stay here again.
