All About Eagle Lake
Sparkling Eagle Lake (formerly Henry Lake) is the center of the Eagle Lake Community Association – a campsite and mobile home community located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. A private, gated community, Eagle Lake members and guests can enjoy use of the 70-acre lake, pristine sandy beaches, multiple marinas, a community clubhouse, a country store, a children’s playground, and an Olympic-sized pool.
Located near the town of Gouldsboro, in southern Wayne County, Pennsylvania, Eagle Lake visitors will find themselves surrounded by the beautiful lake region of the Pocono Mountains. With 150 lakes and 170 miles of waterways, outdoor recreation is a way of life. In addition to swimming, boating, and sunbathing on the shores of Eagle Lake, nearby 170-acre Tobyhanna Lake and 250-acre Gouldsboro Lake are public lakes which offer unlimited water sports and outdoor activities.
Because Eagle Lake is a private community, you must own or rent real estate in the community to use the lake. Lots for sale or for rent can be used for tent camping, RVs and small mobile homes. Spacious lots around the lake feature larger, more permanent mobile homes with docks and screened Florida rooms. Membership to the association does have its privileges. Two sandy beaches, four marinas, shaded picnic facilities, a children’s playground complete with swings and slides, a game room, and a fitness center and clubhouse for adults can all be used by members. An Olympic size pool complex includes a 10,000 square foot pool, Jacuzzi, kiddie-pool and indoor concession stand. Basketball courts, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, handball courts, 1,500 acres for hiking and cross country skiing, horseshoe pits, a recreation area, and miniature golf are also available. Activities and sightseeing trips are sponsored by the Association.
Eagle Lake is located high in the Pocono Mountains in the midst of many spectacular attractions. Tobyhanna State Park and Gouldsboro State Park offer a combined 8,240 acres for fishing, boating, camping, mountain biking and hiking. Common sport fish in the Poconos include largemouth bass, small mouth bass, pickerel, yellow perch, catfish and sunfish. Tobyhanna Lake has been stocked with brook trout and Gouldsboro Lake offers muskellunge, walleye, and crappie. Fishing piers are available in both parks. Other nearby attractions include Lake Wallenpaupack, one of the largest man-made lakes in the state; state game lands; Big Pocono State Park at the top of Camelback Mountain which features a stunning view of three states; and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area known for its canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and tubing adventures. Just west of Eagle Lake, the Lackawanna State Forest contains 8,115 acres for hiking, picnicking, backpacking, hunting, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, fishing and leisurely nature walks
Golfers visiting Eagle Lake will find several championship golf courses in the area. Although best known for its hiking and winter sports, golfing in the Pocono Mountains is second to none. From late spring through the spectacular fall, the cool mountain air creates a fantastic environment for golfing.
Winter sports enthusiasts will find Eagle Lake’s proximity to a number of major ski areas make it the perfect place for downhill adventures. State forest land, state parks, and the rolling landscape around Eagle Lake can be used for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. Ice fishing and ice skating are popular lake activities.
In addition to vacation rentals at Eagle Lake, the Poconos are host to an almost unlimited number of vacation rentals and real estate in the form of resorts, lodges, spas, bed and breakfasts, inns, condos, private homes, full service campgrounds, cabins, and cottages. Lodging facilities in the Poconos are as numerous and varied as the mountains themselves.
Eagle Lake guests will find plenty of outdoor and indoor activities. NASCAR Fans will enjoy the Pocono Raceway which has long been noted as one of NASCAR’s most competitive race tracks. The region also has several performing art venues, outdoor and indoor concerts, seasonal festivals, museums, outlet stores, and many small to mid-size towns for shopping, dining and sightseeing.
Located 100 miles west of New York City, 150 miles north of Philadelphia, and 35 miles east of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre corridor, Eagle Lake is easily accessible any time of the year.
