4 of the Best Activities for Your Poconos Family Vacation

1. Boat, Kayak and SUP Rentals

A Poconos family vacation without at Silver Birches offers plenty of fun. At the Recreation Center, you can rent boats, kayaks and standup paddleboards (SUP). Imagine paddling your way across Lake Wallenpaupack, surrounded by Poconos beauty, or casting your line out and reeling in smallmouth bass and walleye. We offer standard, tandem, fishing and children’s kayaks, as well as a variety of paddle boards. If that’s not enough power for you, then you’ll love our boat rentals. Thanks to the Freedom Boat Club, you can take your pick of a pontoon, fishing, or ski boat rental! Visit our website for more details and rates.

2. Stunning Sunsets

It’s hard to find a bad place to catch a Poconos sunset on Lake Wallenpaupack (in fact, we think it’s impossible). Relax at The Dock on Wallenpaupack restaurant, where you can celebrate the end of the day with a Sunset toast. Or, jump in the car and take the kids to the Palmyra Township Public Beach! Cookout, play volleyball or take a dip in the lake – just make sure you stick around for the views in the evening. Another great place to catch sunset views is from the Lake Wallenpaupack Observation Dike. Of course, then there’s nothing wrong with simply sitting on our front porch and enjoying the evening.

3. Fishing on Lake Wallenpaupack

Fishing and relaxation go hand in hand, and Lake Wallenpaupack will keep any angler happy. Whether you’re renting a boat or fishing kayak from our Recreation Center or taking a guided fishing tour, you and your family will love fishing here! The lake is known for its population of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, bluegill and more. Check out this blog on Lake Wallenpaupack fishing for more information!

This annual festival is the most exciting event to come to Lake Wallenpaupack! From August 27-29, the lake comes to life, and anywhere you go, you’ll find fun. Events and attractions include Blues, Brews & BBQ, Wallypalooza, artisans fair, food, and much, much more! Plan your Poconos family vacation around Wally Lake Fest, and you won’t be disappointed.
