Such a well run park.
Cabins, Fishing, Jim Thorpe Town is a bike ride away. So much fun. Hike the old trails and see the coal region up close.
Really enjoyed coming across the old toboggan run that was used back when the area was a winter resort. Date of stay: September Holly J wrote a review Aug My boyfriend and I love the outdoors and we were celebrating our anniversary this weekend, it was our first visit to Pennsylvania and we are so glad we went! We stayed in a cabin and it was super cute and clean, it rained poured our first night, but we made the most of it.
Saturday we went into town and then did a hike to Glen Onoko falls, which was gorgeous and then we rented Kayaks for our last day at Mauch Chunk which we both would highly recommend doing so, the lake is so clear and clean, and the views are stunning.
The only thing we both thought was really weird is that you are not allowed to have any alcohol- on site, we both thought this was very strange and there is no explanation as to why Oh last but definitely not least, I have grown up going camping in several areas, and I always cringe when its time to shower, because of all the bugs and dirt etc. Date of stay: August ChrisandCindy08 wrote a review Jul East Earl, Pennsylvania contributions 52 helpful votes.
Boat launch the best!! We were there for vacation and had our fur child, Goldendoodle with us. He loves the water and swimming.
A local we met at the beach in April told us about the boat ramp for him to go swimming. We went with our boy, taking his leash and life vest for a dog. He was happy, swimming with lots of happy sounds from him.
People launching from their devices said it made them happy to see him having fun. He is such fun to take on vacation and watch have a wonderful time.
Look forward to our next visit. Date of stay: July Trip type: Traveled with family. Jackie J wrote a review Jul Catasauqua, Pennsylvania 37 contributions 3 helpful votes. Very nice 3 night stay at the campground. We opted for a cabin which was very clean. The site included a picnic table and fire ring. Bathrooms were adaquit. The lake was very clean and clear and great for kayaking. There were alot of people on the 4th of July but still plenty of space to set up a beach tent and to swim. I look forward to many more camping trips here.

United States. East Mauch Chunk , organized as a Pennsylvania township when a part of 19th century Northampton County, Pennsylvania , was originally settled in the s as a cross river bedroom community from both vanished Lausanne Landing and the explosively growing Mauch Chunk  which it served as an upscale bedroom community, where company managers and officers were known to build homes,  along with the housing built in what is known as upper Mauch Chunk.
Today, after the two Mauch Chunk's passed home rule referenda to merge and change their names in honor of the Olympic champion Native American in the s compliant with the Constitution of the Commonwealth , the community merged with the Mauch Chunk borough and became the larger more residential part of Jim Thorpe, PA. The neighborhood is located along the eastern left bank of the Lehigh River on the opposite bank from the Jim Thorpe business district. Situated on a gently rising slope of Bear Mountain , and its street grid is arrayed along either side of PA which proceeds almost due northeast roughly parallel to the south-facing escarpment of Bear Mountain to connect with Albrightsville, PA and originates across the bridge joining the neighborhood with Jim Thorpe's business district and Tees into US By the s the area above the Lehigh Gap was being regularly penetrated by pioneers, and logging companies, in the face of the developing energy crisis, began small scale operations.
Sitting to south of the dominant height of Broad Mountain across the Lehigh from where the Nesquehoning Creek crashes into the Lehigh in direct opposition, their confluence skews off at right angles to both in a wide mile long 'slack water pool' that sits between railyards on both banks and was the historic divide between the Mauch Chunk sides.
Today's town, Jim Thorpe consisting of both halves is joined by a bridge, which was not so in the earliest days. The land of East Mauch Chunk above the cut bank of the river floodplain slopes gradually up and away to the northeast from the river, and homeowners have a beautiful view supporting the region's nickname. The referendum was approved by wide margins, with voters in the Borough of Mauch Chunk voting in favor to 90 against, and the Borough of East Mauch Chunk voting in favor to against. Today the village is primarily a bedroom community as it began and also a tourist waypoint as the southern entrance to Lehigh Gorge State Park ; among other traffic, white water rafting and water sports sporting companies shuttle tourists into and through the community.
