Promised Land State Park


About 3,000 acres in size, Promised Land State Park is on the Pocono Plateau, 1,800 feet above sea level, and is surrounded by 12,464 acres of the Delaware State Forest, including natural areas. Visitors can enjoy fishing and boating in two lakes, rustic cabins, camping, miles of hiking trails, and forests to explore. The forests of the park consist primarily of beech, oak, maple, and hemlock trees. Two lakes and several small streams add to the park’s outstanding scenic beauty.

Environmental Education programming is offered from April through October at both Promised Land State Park and Varden Conservation Area. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, recreational programming is offered on Fridays and Saturdays. From late June through early September, the park offers a weekly nature arts and crafts program for children of all ages that is organized by conservation volunteers.

The park also offers a family fishing program that builds fishing skills and includes loaner poles, bait, and tackle. Loaner poles can also be borrowed at the park office and the Masker Museum.

Spring through fall, school and group programs can be scheduled. These programs cover a wide variety of standards-based topics and levels. Please contact the park office to book a school or group program.

The Masker Museum at Promised Land State Park is one of the largest Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) museums in the commonwealth and features interactive stories, displays, and artifacts that tell the story of the CCC in Promised Land. A section of the Masker Museum has natural history displays, including mounted animals, interactive displays of natural features found in the area, children’s books and field guides, and a bird observation area. The museum also has a native plant garden and bird feeding stations. It is located off of Pickerel Point Road by the amphitheater and Pickerel Point Campground. The museum is completely volunteer-staffed. For information about becoming a museum docent, please contact the park office.
