Bushkill

Bushkill ©
Bushkill is an unincorporated community in Pike County, Pennsylvania, United States.Portions of Bushkill were seized by the United States government during the controversial Tocks Island Dam project and are now part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Let the collections at Dorflinger Glass Museum and Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm capture your imagination. Visiting Bushkill Falls and Tobyhanna State Park will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bushkill: Lacawac Sanctuary (in Lake Ariel), Spas (in Hawley) and Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark (in Tannersville). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Resica Falls and stop by Country Kettle.

To see where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Bushkill road trip planner.

Jim Thorpe is a borough and the county seat of Carbon County in the U.S. Step out of the city life by going to Boulder Field and Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Jail Museum and Asa Packer Mansion. Get out of town with these interesting Jim Thorpe side-trips: Austin T Blakeslee Natural Area (in Blakeslee), Frances Slocum State Park (in Wyoming) and Blue Ridge Estate Winery (in Saylorsburg). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Episcopal Parish of St. Mark and St. John, immerse yourself in nature at Beltzville State Park, trot along with a tour on horseback, and take in the dramatic scenery at Hawks Falls.
