We have stayed here multiple times and never have been disappointed. Pickeral Point was newly remodeled. Lower Lake is in great shape. It is one of those parks you purposely plan you trip to try to stay there. We have 24ft class C. Very wooded and quiet. Bathhouses are well maintained. Highly recommend to all.

Great state park. Clean water for swimming, nice picnicking areas, canoe rentals, great trails for hiking through mountain laurel and rhodies. Slightly off the beaten path allows for safe biking riding along roads. Camping site was average. Clean, modern facilities a nice bonus.

We haven't been here in a number of years but just made a trip last week.

It is even better than before! The have expanded the beach area along the shore which allows much less crowding for swimmers and sun-lovers. The park is kept clean and this is in part to the people who go and pay attention to the rules - clean up after yourselves. The restrooms were also clean.

The snack area was open and doing a decent business. There are places you can stop on the way for sandwiches but why bother when the snack area is open and costs only a little more.

This is a great place for families where you can swim, hike, catch some rays, row, canoe, or just chill on the grass and read a good book. The view is awesome. I can't imagine why it was so long since we last visited but we will not wait that long again!

Our family has been coming to Promised Land State Park for nearly 50 years. Its difficult to know where to begin with the natural beauty of the area, the wildlife, the water activities or the hiking. We did everything possible during our last visit. We participated in three organized activities with Allison the new park Naturalist, fished every day (lots of fish but no big ones) canoed on the upper lake and saw lots of wildlife including four black bears and we even spent an afternoon at one of the beaches. During this visit we stayed in one of the 12 cabins but in years past we have also camped or stayed at a nearby local motel.

We can not wait to get back again in the fall and next spring for the opening of trout season.
