Located on the outskirts of historical Jim Thorpe, this county park is perfect for a family getaway. Walk or bike the renovated Switchback Gravity Railroad and many other trails throughout the park, rent a boat, hike or stroll through the woods to the Environmental Center to see birds of prey, or unwind on the park's sandy beach.
