I had the pleasure of staying three nights at Promised Land State Park; one in June 2018, the other two in July of that year. Our sites (383,385,402) were close to the bathhouse, a short walk away. Facilities were comparable to many state park campgrounds, and for the time of year, there were no wait times for shower or bathroom use.
During the July stay, there were reports of young orphaned bear cubs in the campsite area and we were asked to stow our food safely in a vehicle - our gear is a motorcycle and a Time Out trailer/tent that would not afford the sort of security for our food and belongings that was requested. The camp host kindly accommodated storage of our food and supplies overnight for as long as we stayed.
We did not get to see the entirety of the park, but did get to swim in the lake on premises. I will visit again and recommend this state park to anyone visiting the Poconos.
This is a beautifully taken care of State Park. Great sites, clean bathhouses, friendly camp hosts, rangers helpful and friendly, special treat of bear passing on nearby road, peaceful and well kept up trails.Dog friendly too. We enjoyed kayaking, hiking, biking and just enjoying the peace around the park. Plenty of areas to kayak. Two beaches and nice picnic areas. Walking and biking trails too. Rental for canoes, row boats and kayaks. Just be aware weekend rentals for kayaks are limited. Campsites and clean facilities.ignage was everywhere and water for filling up and two dumping stations near campground.It was our first state park and we came home and booked another trip in 2 weeks we had such a great time.After doing regular campgrounds the atmosphere of the state park is our#1 favorite now!
We stayed in the Pickerel Point of the park. We had full hookups (20/30/50 amp, water & sewer). There's no cable but we were able to pickup about 6 channels with our digital antenna. This place is absolutely stunning. The lake is crystal clear and the beach is spotless. You absolutely have to bring a kayak/inflatable boat, but if you don't own one, don't worry, you can rent one. All of the sites were spacious. The only complaint I had (which really isn't a real complaint) was that the grass needed cutting as it was pretty long and uncomfortable to walk through. Pickerel point is the most action packed part of the park. LOTS of kids and people enjoying themselves. If you're looking for a more secluded experience, the park has sections for that as well. We'll definitely return!
The whole park is amazing. Recommend Little Falls Trail. We also explored Conservation Island. Many more trails to explore and not enough time. The surrounding town is small and very cute.
The park has some great trails. They have camping sites to meet everyone’s wants and needs.
There are several different camping areas within the park. Some areas are pet friendly while others are not. Some sites have hookups while others are primitive. There is an area for everyone! Be sure to check out the hiking trails and the beach!!
This campground was nice. The campsites themselves were a bit small, but the lake and boating were great and the showers were good
Beautiful State Park!! Great beach area for swimming and kayaking. Beware of bears!!
Big sites with 30 amp service available for RVs and trailers. Each site has a large picnic table and a fire ring with an adjustable grate. The pull-through sites don’t offer much in the way of privacy, but that’s the trade off for convenience. There are two potable water spigots in the campground. The bathhouse offers warm showers, 2 dishwashing sinks, and a coin-operated washer and dryer. The facilities are kept very clean. On the weekends it can get pretty crowded, so it tends to be louder at night then, but the camp hosts and the rangers do a good job of enforcing quiet hours. Access points to several trails are very near the campground. As with all PA state parks, alcohol is prohibited. The park doesn’t have a camp store, however, there is a small general store on Route 390 (The Lake Store) just north of the park that would have any essentials you may have forgotten, as well as ice for your cooler.
Quiet and clean. Multiple sites on different sides of the lake with options for tents and RVs, both with and without hookups. The lake can get a little crowded and the bathroom can get messy, but very family friendly.
