Park Alerts ( 5 Alerts )

  • MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL - The Mountain Bike Trail is closed for the Season for biking and trail running.  It will reopen in the Spring once the trail dries out.

  • WINTERIZATION has begun.....partly due to the low level of the lake and with Sunday's drastic temperature change, the boat ramps have now been pulled.  Bathroom facilities remain available at the fishing pier, park office lot, Tohickon and Haycock boat launches with the modern facilities closed for the season.  The park is still beautiful in its winter glory so come out and enjoy!

  • Work is scheduled to begin later in the summer and fall of 2016 on a timber salvage harvest within Nockamixon State Park consisting of many dead and dying ash trees affected or soon to be affected by an emerald ash borer infestation. A timber salvage sale is being used to remove ash and hazardous trees for the safety of park visitors within picnic areas and high use areas as well as from an area on the south side of the park. The salvage harvest effort will entail retention of all other healthy, hardwood tree species in the area. Once removal is complete, re-planting plans will be implemented.
  • Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.

Park Description

The 5,286-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 a destination for boaters and anglers. Visitors can stay the night in a cabin or enjoy the many activities of the park for the day. Popular activities are picnicking, visiting the pool, hiking, biking and boating.
