Lake Ariel

Lake Ariel ©
Lake Ariel is a village in Lake Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania. Escape the urban bustle at Pocono Environmental Education Center and Lacawac Sanctuary. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Mountain Creek Riding Stable and Pocono ATV Tours. Explore Lake Ariel's surroundings by going to Paradise Riding Stables (in Mount Pocono) and Lackawaxen (Zane Grey Museum & Roebling Aqueduct Suspension Bridge). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Wayne County Historical Society Museum and stop by I84 Country Store.

Plan my day in Lake Ariel using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

New York City to Lake Ariel is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. Traveling from New York City in August, Lake Ariel is slightly colder at night with lows of °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Lehighton.
