Offering both warm-water and cold-water fish species, Lackawanna Lake is a 200-acre lake in the northeast part of the state. Boating, camping, biking, hiking, swimming and fishing draw visitors to the park. Boats are limited to electric motors or un powered, making this a great environment for kayaks, canoes and row boats.
Rental boats are available near the public swimming pool. Several trails around the lake provide access for fishing from the bank along some of the 7 miles of shoreline. An ADA accessible fishing pier is also available near the main boat ramp. A three-acre pond for youth fishing only, is at the north end of the park. When the ice is safe in winter, ice fishing is popular.
