“Nockamixon State Park for Boating And Picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Came to view the steam boats for years for their annual event. Nice clean area for enjoyment on BBQing. If your into Kyaking though, watch for water snakes.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Even in the winter time, Nockamixon is a great place to run, hike, bike, etc. It is well-kept, clean and the price is always right -- FREE!!! You can rent boats during the summer and they even have a huge public pool. Take a visit to one of the state's great parks -- you won't regret it.

Great place to walk my dog and relax on the grass. The people that come here are friendly and respectful. It feels very safe.

this past spring/summer my friends and relatives all purchased kayaks. we meet every sunday with our picnic basket and have the most wonderful afternoon on the most beautiful lake to be found anywhere. we stay from noon to dusk.... we kayak while others fish, sail or just picnic.. a truly lovely way to spend a nice sunny afternoon or day and it is FREE...

“Beauty in Upper Bucks County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Great hiking trails but watch out for the hunters especially in the fall! Good for sailing and kayaking but watch out for the fishing boats as they sometimes need to hurry to get from fishing spot to fishing spot ; ~) Boats for rent and a swimming pool all add to the draw. There are also year round cabins available for rent. The lake is huge and beautiful as is the dam.
