Best parks in Luzerne County

Park
“Beautiful state park with great trails for hiking. Amazing waterfalls along the trails. Visit Lake Jean while you are here & swim in the lake & play at the lakeside beach. A food stand operates near the lake in the summer months for your convenience to grab lunch or a snack. Feel free to pack your own if you prefer but definitely plan of spending the day!”
