The 5,286-acre Nockamixon State Park is in the rolling hills of scenic Bucks County, close enough to Philadelphia or a day trip, but far enough away for a vacation. Tohickon Creek, Three Mile Run, and Haycock Run feed the 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon, which is a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and a destination for boaters and anglers. Visitors can stay the night in a cabin or enjoy the many activities of the park for the day. Popular activities are picnicking, swimming in the pool, hiking, biking, disc golf, hunting, fishing, and boating. Seasons and Hours: The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk. The park office is open specific hours. Fishing and boating is permitted 24 hours a day in designated areas. Some park areas are closed to vehicles in the winter. Contact the park office for facility seasons and hours.

This park is usually overcrowded in warm weather. The lake water is as clear as chocolate milk. Being located between Philadelphia and Allentown/Bethlehem, makes this like an inner city park on weekends.

Kayaking is not necessarily called for on a 53 degree day with 18 mph wind. But. It was still great to be here. Great setting and well organized. One of my go to kayaking state parks.

Beautiful park and scenery. We wanted to go kayaking however the lake was too large in my opinion. We did however enjoy just walking around and enjoying the views.

No real frills nor was there a significant elevation gain on any of the trails but the Highbridge Trail was by far the best. The spillway is definitely worth walking down to see is the neatest looking little spill way that you will ever encounter....More
