Mauch Chunk Lake Park

Located on the outskirts of historical Jim Thorpe, this 2300-acre county park is perfect for that family getaway. Whether you are visiting the park for a day, or camping for a week, MCLP has much to offer.

Swim, paddle, row, go fishing, or simply enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature while lounging on the clean sandy beach. Hike, bike, or ski the scenic and historic switchback gravity railroad trail which runs right through the park.
