Among the activities you’ll find at the park, the lake provides for several of them. At 167 acres, Frances Slocum Lake provides an ideal habitat for warm-water fish. Electric boats and paddle craft are allowed. Wildlife viewing on the lake and in the wetlands that surround it is excellent. And, if it’s cold enough, you can ice skate on the lake in the winter. Additionally, the park offers many opportunities for hiking, and it has a swimming pool. Given that it is located only 10 miles from the somewhat urban Wilkes-Barre and a few miles farther from Scranton, the park is heavily visited, especially during the summer months.
