“Doesn't get any better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is a great state park for camping. Sites are beautiful. Wooded, private , quiet. The lake is nice because only electric motors are allowed. Lots of hiking trails. It's a good spot for day use too like Picnicking and fishing. No camp store here though, so bring what you need with you.

“Beautiful grounds and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We love visiting Frances Slocum State Park. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously kept. From a family gathering to simply walking the dog you won't be disappointed here. Great fishing spot too! Highly recommended for a very inexpensive family fun day.

“Pretty park, close to town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The park has a lake for fishing and paddle boats, rowboats and canoes to rent. Lots of pavillions and a swimming pool for a fun afternoon with the kids. There are lots of trails and plenty of parking, with an RV campground, too. Close to town (15 min. to Wilkes-Barre).

“Family park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

A very relaxing hiking trail with activities for family fun (picnicking, boating, etc). Ideal settings for large gatherings - family reunions, casual get togethers with fellow workers, etc.
