Owner description: The 5,286-acre Nockamixon State Park is in the rolling hills of scenic Bucks County, close enough to Philadelphia or a day trip, but far enough away for a vacation. Tohickon Creek, Three Mile Run, and Haycock Run feed the 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon, which is a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and a destination for boaters and anglers. Visitors can stay the night in a cabin or enjoy the many activities of the park for the day. Popular activities are picnicking, swimming in the pool, hiking, biking, disc golf, hunting, fishing, and boating. Seasons and Hours: The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk. The park office is open specific hours. Fishing and boating is permitted 24 hours a day in designated areas. Some park areas are closed to vehicles in the winter. Contact the park office for facility seasons and hours.

There are so many different aspects to this park it's difficult to know where to start. There is boating, swimming, camping, fishing, hunting and hiking. My favorite hike is the trail to the top of Haycock Mountain that starts from Stony Garden Road. Second is Viewing the Falls over the dam from South Park Rd. Third is walking out along the top of the dam from Foellner Lane. Note: In Fall there is no hunting on Sundays. The bathrooms at the marina are the best ones. And you can rent a canoe or kayak!
