1. Prompton State Park

Prompton State Park is a lush, 2,000-acre state park in Wayne County, Pennsylvania. This sprawling state park is a popular destination for many summer activities in the Poconos. It features over 26 miles of hiking trails and a glistening 290-acre warm water fishery, Prompton Lake. This lake is home to many fish species, including crappie, yellow perch and largemouth and smallmouth bass.

From boating, kayaking and fishing to hiking, picnicking and mountain biking, there is an activity for everyone at Prompton State Park. 

2. Lackawaxen River

A tributary of the Delaware River, the Lackawaxen River meanders gently through the northern Pocono Mountains. This lazy, 31-mile river is a fun place to wade, swim or splash around with the family. This river also welcomes activities like fly fishing, kayaking and water tubing. 

Remember to always wear sunblock and life jackets whenever you and your family are in the water.
