Friends of Big Pocono

December 4, 2015

Friends of Big Pocono are working together to preserve the park’s heritage and natural beauty for all to enjoy, and are dedicated to enhancing the Big Pocono experience for visitors.

Big Pocono State Park is in Monroe County in northeastern Pennsylvania. The park consists of 1,306 acres of rugged terrain on the summit and slopes of Camelback Mountain. From the summit, visitors can enjoy a magnificent view of a vast portion of eastern Pennsylvania and portions of New Jersey and New York. The park closes the day after the end of deer season in December and reopens as conditions permit in the spring. The park is open sunrise to sunset.

Big Pocono State Park facilities are operated and maintained in cooperation with the Camelback Mountain Resort. The trails of Big Pocono State Park are maintained in cooperation with the Pocono Outdoor Club.
