“Beautiful!”

Promised Land State Park

Reviewed 8 July 2014

We haven't been here in a number of years but just made a trip last week.

It is even better than before! The have expanded the beach area along the shore which allows much less crowding for swimmers and sun-lovers. The park is kept clean and this is in part to the people who go and pay attention to the rules - clean up after yourselves. The restrooms were also clean.

The snack area was open and doing a decent business. There are places you can stop on the way for sandwiches but why bother when the snack area is open and costs only a little more.

This is a great place for families where you can swim, hike, catch some rays, row, canoe, or just chill on the grass and read a good book. The view is awesome. I can't imagine why it was so long since we last visited but we will not wait that long again!

Our family has been coming to Promised Land State Park for nearly 50 years. Its difficult to know where to begin with the natural beauty of the area, the wildlife, the water activities or the hiking. We did everything possible during our last visit. We participated in three organized activities with Allison the new park Naturalist, fished every day (lots of fish but no big ones) canoed on the upper lake and saw lots of wildlife including four black bears and we even spent an afternoon at one of the beaches. During this visit we stayed in one of the 12 cabins but in years past we have also camped or stayed at a nearby local motel.

We can not wait to get back again in the fall and next spring for the opening of trout season.

A good time to get away from it all. Such a large lake, with a road that you can bike on with very little traffic ( 3 cars in 4 hours ). Lots of flowers, scenery, and nature to relax you!

OMG what a gorgeous day to be out on the lake in a paddle boat last Saturday. The weather was perfect and the view just awesome. We had a great time in the paddle boat. Had a tough time deciding what to rent - kayaks, paddle boat, row boat, canoe, they had it all at reasonable prices (but no credit cards - lol). Bathrooms super clean and the wildlife was great. Even saw a snake. Will absolutely go again.

If you enjoy biking, hiking, fishing, campfires, and water sports than this is the getaway for you. The nicest and cleanest bathrooms and showers at a state park. So many hiking trails and areas to bike that you can't do it all in a weekend. Pet and family friendly with educational programs that are very interesting.
