All You Need to Know About Kid-Friendly Activities at Lake Wallenpaupack

Kayak and Paddling

There’s nothing like spending the day out on the water, especially when surrounded by gorgeous landscapes at Lake Wallenpaupack. Take advantage of our recreation center and rent a kayak or a paddleboard! Not only is it a great bonding experience with your little ones, but also a fun way to show them the beauty of Pennsylvania. Reconnect with yourself, spend quality time with the ones you love, and learn a new way to enjoy the water!


Are you an angler who wants to pass on this passion to your kids? We recommend renting a boat and going on a fishing adventure! At Silver Birches, we offer pontoon boats, ski boats, and fishing boats for use. The entire family will have a blast catching a variety of fish in Lake Wallenpaupack. The species include striped bass and walleye for example. Here’s a map of the lake to help you plan your day on the water. Fishing Licenses are required for adults, and the visitor center has free fishing poles to lend out.


Take a break from the water and change your perspective of the lake. Another great activity to enjoy with your kids is to bike around the Lake Wallenpaupack Trail. It offers gorgeous views of the area and makes for a lovely family stroll. The trail is 1.5-miles long, which makes it accessible for all generations and levels. Soak up the scenery as you bike along the water, downhill toward the Wallenpaupack Creek, and through the chestnut oaks forest!

Take a Break at Cocoon Coffee House

After enjoying all these fun activities, you can reward your little ones with a well-deserved break at Cocoon Coffee House! They’ll probably be hungry and tired, and all they need is a cup of hot cocoa and a delicious, homemade pastry. It’s the perfect place to recharge and laugh about all the wonderful memories you’ve made during the day.
