“Doesn't get any better”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

This is a great state park for camping. Sites are beautiful. Wooded, private , quiet. The lake is nice because only electric motors are allowed. Lots of hiking trails. It's a good spot for day use too like Picnicking and fishing. No camp store here though, so bring what you need with you.

“Beautiful grounds and views”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We love visiting Frances Slocum State Park. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously kept. From a family gathering to simply walking the dog you won't be disappointed here. Great fishing spot too! Highly recommended for a very inexpensive family fun day.

“Pretty park, close to town.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The park has a lake for fishing and paddle boats, rowboats and canoes to rent. Lots of pavillions and a swimming pool for a fun afternoon with the kids. There are lots of trails and plenty of parking, with an RV campground, too. Close to town (15 min. to Wilkes-Barre).

“Family park”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

A very relaxing hiking trail with activities for family fun (picnicking, boating, etc). Ideal settings for large gatherings - family reunions, casual get togethers with fellow workers, etc.
