Welcome
August is Animal Education Month. Join us for visits from our local wildlife professionals and learn about the furry and not so furry inhabitants of northeastern Pennsylvania and beyond. There are lots of fine musicians remaining in the Campfire Music Series. We'll hold our Second Annual Fish Fry on August 9th, and a Spaghetti Dinner over Labor Day weekend. Although we enjoy providing these activities and more, it's our hope that the first item on your to-do list is to sit back and enjoy the natural surroundings and the little gems that are within. For you might see a heron fishing in the creek, an eagle soaring above, a crayfish crossing your path, a noteworthy sunrise, or a sampling of this summer's blueberry crop. That's really what it's all about!
Welcome to the website for Clayton Park Recreational Area, located in Lake Ariel, Pennslyvania. For an interactive introduction to our park, use this website along with our Facebook pages. We are all about camping, fishing, boating and live music. And we have all kinds of information to share with you; about our park, the surrounding area, bringing your pets, and beyond! Click on the Links tab above to learn more about the area around us and to review our policies. Text in blue indicates a hyperlink to additional information. Ask about our seasonal rates, we still have seasonal sites available. Bring your RV, your tent, or if you're looking for a cabin, think about staying in a rental! Enjoy some weekend activities and take some time to sit back and chill. Visit our Rates tab for information on camping fees. Enjoy a reduced rate midweek, as well as Good Sam and other discounts.
Located in Northeastern Pennsylvania, we are a seasonal campground and boat launch where we endeavor to preserve and enhance our family tradition, spanning nearly a century, of providing the public with opportunities for memorable outdoor experiences on beautiful Lake Henry. Be sure to follow our Directions and use the I84 Route. It's never too early to make a reservation. Send us an email, or give us a call. Please note that as of 2014, all late check-ins (after 9pm) may be subject to additional fees. Clayton Park will be card access in 2014.
We anticipate the distinct contributions each and every one of you brings to our camping family! We are working hard and always striving to ensure you and your family enjoy a safe, relaxing, and unique camping experience. We hope that our activities will serve to enhance your camping experience and will never overshadow the experience of camping in the Pocono Mountains on one of its most beautiful lakes. We appreciate your patience as we prepare for next season's Campfire Music Series, themed months, our Second Annual Fish Fry, and other events.
We are an official Good Sam's and Wooodall's/AAA rated park! Ask us about becoming a Good Sam member. Please ask about these discounts upon making your reservations.
We hope everyone enjoys our Campfire Music Series as much as we enjoy providing it. Check our facebook page via Campfire Musicians or through Clayton Park Recreational Area.
Most of you have dogs who are a part of your family, which makes them part of our camping family. Check out our leash-free area. You can let Fido run around without the encumbrance of a leash, relax in the shade, and enjoy the view of the water. Just so there are no unnecessary surprises, please be sure to read our pet policy prior to making your reservation.
The Mt. Cobb VFW Post 6520 has achieved their new home. We were happy to help out with their fundraisers in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and we'll continue to do so in 2014. Come out for their annual chicken barbeque and their annual fun nite! Please help us support our local veterans. We are also proud to be a part of Tents for Troops. For 2014, we have reserved 2 tent sites and 2 RV sites for active duty military (holiday weekends exempt). We are happy to offer those sites free of charge upon presentation of your current active military ID.
Nestled in the quiet hills of the Lake Region of Northeastern Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, we began as a humble boat livery in the early 1900's. We gradually expanded to include tent and RV camping, pavilion rentals, and fishing tournaments. Today, our campground is a highly creative endeavor through which we paint experiences based on the tranquil countryside and the unique people who've composed around us.
While we are conveniently located just a few minutes from Interstate 84, our campground rests in a quiet, secluded setting on the shores of Lake Henry. The cities of Scranton, Honesdale, Carbondale and Hamlin are all within 30 minutes or less where you can find many popular attractions including The Steamtown National Historic Site and Stourbridge Line Rail Excursions, Glenmaura National Golf Course, The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, Dickson City Crossings, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, Claws 'N' Paws Wild Animal Park, Varden Conservation Area, and the world's 2nd best hot-wings at the Windsor Inn. Explore our Links tab for more information on the area where we provide our version of concierge service for campers. We also provide many unique activities opportunities which are thoughtfully designed to further enhance your outdoor experience.
We are located in the southern part of Wayne County, Pennsylvania, which has more lakes than any other county in PA, and is home to some of the best fishing in the state. The 310 acres of Lake Henry make it the second largest lake in the County and home to many popular species of fish, including large and small mouth bass, pickerel, perch, catfish, crappie, bluegills, and sunfish. Eagles and herons fish here regularly. Bring your PA fishing license and you can enjoy fishing Lake Henry too! But, unlike the birds, you must abide by seasonal dates for specific species of fish.
