The 5,283-acre Nockamixon State Park is in the rolling hills of scenic Bucks County, close enough to Philadelphia for a day trip, but far enough away for a vacation. Tohickon Creek, Three Mile Run and Haycock Run feed the 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon, which is a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and is a destination for boaters and anglers. Picnicking, swimming in the pool, and exploring the park’s forests and fields are popular activities, as is staying the night in a cabin. A 2.8-mile paved bicycle trail is located on the north side of the park. Off-road biking is allowed on about 9 miles of trails in the eastern area of the park known as Haycock Cove. There are 20 miles of equestrian trails available for riding in the park. Horses may be rented at a private establishment near the park. There are three miles of hiking trails that wind through forests and near the lake. There is no swimming permitted in Nockamixon Lake.
