  • The hiking, swimming, boating, and civil war era village are all delightful! Are refreshing day in nature with my family.  more »
  • The US is a miracle of nature. You expect nothing, has never heard of it, is random in New Jersey, and again one encounters when driving around on beautiful nature. So here!

  • Love this place! We visit at least once a year. I would recommend checking out the towns around this area, you can find a few gems if you look hard!  more »
  • We went tubing down the Delaware but there was next to no tidal flow and the wind was against us so what should have been a relaxing trip wound up being way too much work. Eventually the speed picked up but by then my arms were about to fall off. Definitely won't do tubing again. Kayaks might be fun though.
  • On both the PA and Jersey sides, the first mile is the toughest, but the views from either side make it worth the effort. It's great being able to walk a few miles of the Appalachian Trail, even so close to the city, and once you're a mile or two along the route, everything cleans up, quiets down, and you feel like you're truly off in the woods somewhere remote and wild. Well worth a day trip.
  • Beautiful area! Dinghman Falls was a great stop. It's a relatively short & easy walk along a nice walkway. There are 2 separate waterfalls to view.
  • This is one of the best national parks in the state of New Jersey. Visited turtle beach with friends and it was so much fun. You can grill, swim and play- all for a small fee of $10 for NJ residents Restrooms were clean. Kids enjoyed swimming in the river so much. Park officers were friendly and offered us trash bag as well.
  • Great place to go for Fall foliage. Lots of hiking trails, waterfalls, and colors to see. Definitely look up trails before you arrive as not all of them are clearly marked. The Pocono Environmental Education Center is a good place to start with several trails and waterfalls.
