Big Pocono State Park is a 1,305.6-acre (528.4 ha) Pennsylvania state park in Jackson and Pocono townships in Monroe County, Pennsylvania in northeastern Pennsylvania in the United States. The park is on Camelback Mountain and is maintained jointly by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Camelback Ski Corporation.

From the summit of the mountain, one has a view of vast portions of eastern Pennsylvania as well as parts of New Jersey and New York. A paved drive, 1.4 miles (2.3 km) in length, around the summit provides visitors with a view in all directions. Visitors can see the Delaware Water Gap from this location.

The park, except for the Camelback Ski Area, closes for the winter seven days following the end of deer season in December and reopens as conditions permit in the spring.

  • We felt like we were on top of the mountain. Be aware it is cooler and windy up there. The drive up is interesting.

  • Be smarter than we were: wear hiking boots, long pants, a backpack to keep your hands free, and a walking stick. We took the Indian Creek trail, which was rocky, but it was pretty.

  • Fantastic views in certain spots. Ample parking and picnic facilities. Hope to try the restaurant at the top sometime! I heard there were snakes but couldn't catch any. One allowed per year with license. Love me some Pennsylvania!!! Steep climbs. Bring the kids
  • Always beautiful up here, even when we are literally in the clouds. Beautifully kept park. Nice picnic areas and benches. Nice trails. Spectacular views.
