“A wonderful Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I've grown up just down the street from Nockamixon and always love going for a hike, bike ride, or simply to relax! if you love nature this park is for you!! Bring the family, friends, or significant others on a nice sunny day you won't be disjointed! There are grills so you can picnic, a little beach by the lake, and rentals for kayaks and paddle boats! If you are hiking pack bug spray just a warning!

“so peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

We sail and picnic there a lot, the Rangers can be sticklers, but that just ensures the park is enjoyed by everyone.
Great place to fish and sail

“Great Memorial Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I was surprised to see that it wasn't that crowded on a Holiday - which we loved! We did not stay near the lake - we chose a remote area that had a lot of space for a picnic. It's a really nice state park! very clean, lots of families! Plenty picnic tables, enough space to play games and run around. Perfect for kids! You can swim, fish, bird watch!
Would definitely recommend!

“Relaxing in nature just outside Philadelphia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I go to this park a lot because of its proximity to the city with the feeling that you are out in the middle of no where. You can bike on trails, picnic, fish (if you are licensed), rent boats/kayaks/canoes and enjoy nature!

On beautiful weekends in the summer the park and trail around the lake get rather crowded so go early to reserve your spot or be prepared to hunt for am comfortable plot.

Looking forward to the warm weather so I can get back ASAP!

“Quakertown Sights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Really nice park to take a walk or do some boating. There is also a pool to use for a fee. I hear the boat rentals aren't the best but I haven't used this service myself.
