Nockamixon State Park

The 5,286-acre Nockamixon State Park is in the rolling hills of scenic Bucks County, close enough to Philadelphia for 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, visiting the pool, hiking, biking and boating.

Great night! Thank you Rebecca for all the great programs. Thank you to the families who used to live where the park is now, we appreciate you sharing your stories. Thank you also to the BuxMont Astronomical Club for bringing out the telescopes. Two little boys were SO EXCITED to actually see the moon craters.
