Nescopeck State Park is home to hundreds of plant and animal species, beautiful watersheds, and lush forests.

The 3,550-acre Nescopeck State Park, located between Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton, PA, is open to the public year-round.

Most of the park’s trails are level and easy for walking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

Fishing season is always a busy time at the park. Anglers of all skill levels can reel in trout, bass, and panfish on the shores of Lake Frances or the banks of Nescopeck Creek.

At educational events, park staff members discuss the area’s biodiversity and teach visitors how they can help protect the environment. Local schools frequently visit for field trips.

The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk. The park office is open specific hours. Contact the park office for facility seasons and hours.
