  • We drove up to the top of the summit for a beautiful view of the fall trees in their wonderful colors. It was only about 15 minute drive to the top of the summit.  more »
  • Good thing the park is not too big as it could be very easy to get lost along the trails, especially after the leaves have fallen. Few signs and few markers to lead you. The trails aren't that excitin...  more »
  • Beautiful scenery. Good roads, very clean restrooms at the summit. A warning is posted to watch out for timber rattlers and bears. Easy trails to hike.  more »

  • Closed during winter, snow or not. Free ! Well there is nothing to do but look at the beautiful Pocono area. You can park and walk. At the top center road there is a bathroom and water most times. One "pay for" telescope. There are a number of paths you can take. The center stop is a panoramic view. This is right by the ski area. Near the entrance of the splitting road, on the left is a restaurant for the ski lift. Prices are accordingly. Nice view out there too.
  • We went to the Camel Beach Mountain Water Park. We really enjoyed the day. We also visited the state park and had driven through it. Also had a ropeway ride. Awesome place to visit.
  • Beautiful views. Great place for an impromptu picnic
  • Not much of a view on top, but a nice spot for a picnic or a short walk.
  • Beautiful place, go all the way on Big Pocono Rd towards its end to reach the top
