Poconos Lake Camping

The Poconos Mountains has a little bit of something for everyone. Crave water adventure? The Three large state parks with lakes have boating facilities for kayaks, canoes and rowboats. Want a quiet place to hike or mountain bike? The Poconos thousands of wooded acres have lots of places to get away from it all, with many trails that wind through the parks. Outdoor camping in recreational vehicles, tents and Cabin vacations make the Poconos a welcome place for families looking to enjoy the Mountains, Lakes, River and Streams, but escape the hustle and bustle of some of the nearby towns. The Poconos Mountains in Eastern Pennsylvania has a wide variety of developed camping locations, offering beautiful scenery, solitude, lake and river access, and unique features. Most of these campgrounds are located within or near rugged, mountainous terrain, and are designed to blend into their natural surroundings. Most campgrounds within the Poconos Mountains offer primitive, tent camping sites. Some, however, do allow camping trailers, an many have hookups available. Many campgrounds do offer water spickets, and some even have dump stations as well. Also, some campgrounds have only vault toilets with no showers, while others have full bathroom/shower facilities. Most campgrounds have picnic tables and/or a pavilion.

Camping is a lot of fun, but please keep in mind that good manners are as important in the outdoors as anywhere else.

Please keep in mind that quiet hours are from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. Others want to sleep for their big day floating, exploring the Poconos or may have children who go to bed early. Please respect your neighbors.

Please DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD! Moving firewood around the country helps spread forest pests like the Emerald Ash Borer and Gypsy Moth. You can gather any dead and down wood around the campsite or park, or buy local firewood at roadside stands, stores or canoe rentals. (Don't take it home with you, either.)

Keep a clean camp , small critters like skunks, crows and raccoons will certainly visit you, looking for a handout. Be prepared to keep your food and garbage either in a vehicle or hanging up high. Otherwise you may wake up to a mess and no breakfast! We have bears in the area, they haven't been a problem yet and we want to keep it that way. Please help by not making it easy for them to steal food or garbage.
