The scenery is beautiful in Mauch Chunk Lake Park. In the summer, mountains lined with bright green trees meet the horizon. There is a small fee to enter the park, but you may enter as many times as you like in one day after you have paid the fee. This is helpful because the road in the park is all one way. The lake is about 3.5 feet deep in the deepest of the swimming area, nad perfect for wading or relaxing. The Lake is warm in the summer. There are several picnic tables at the lake area, but there are also many secluded picnic tables in the woods along the lake. The secluded picnic tables offer privacy for couples looking to enjoy a romantic picnic, or families looking for uninterrupted quality time. Camping is available, but I find that Mauch Chunk Lake is perfect for day trips from Philadelphia.
