Big Pocono State Park Fall Foliage

Big Pocono State Park on Camelback Mountain sprawls across 1,306 acres of varied terrain. You’ll find a multitude of ways to enjoy the beautiful colors of fall at Big Pocono State Park. Here are a few of them!


1. Drive to the Summit

The paved drive to the summit of Camelback Mountain provides incredible autumn views of Pennsylvania, and — on good weather days — New Jersey and New York as well! So even if you aren’t up to hiking, you can still soak in the stunning fall surround.


2. Take a Hike

The 8.5 miles of hiking trails at Big Pocono State Park let you be up-close-and-personal with the falling leaves, as well as getting a bird’s eye view from many of the stunning overlooks. You can even hike to the top of Camelback Mountain. Be aware that some of these trails are quite steep and are not for a beginner hiker or a leisurely stroll!


3. Enjoy a Picnic Lunch

Picnic tables at Big Pocono State Park boast of a “picnic with a view” with an elevation well above sea level at 2100 feet. If anything could improve on nature’s beauty in this season, it would be a bottle of wine and a well-packed lunch of local offerings.


4. Dine at Cameltop Mountain Lodge

If you’re looking for excellent views without having to pack a lunch, consider dining at the Cameltop Mountain Lodge, near the summit of Camelback Mountain. A feast for your eyes and your body!
