Discover Lehigh Gorge State Park, PA

When you book an RV in the eastern reaches of Pennsylvania, you’ll be able to easily explore Lehigh Gorge State Park, which is a large park that covers more than 6,000 acres. Lehigh Gorge State Park is approximately 100 miles from Philadelphia, PA, and 118 miles from New York City, NY, making it a possible destination while visiting either of these major east coast cities. During the summertime, the park is popular for whitewater rafting, biking, fishing, and hiking, while wintertime brings guests who enjoy cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.

Lehigh Gorge State Park has humble beginnings as a location for logging and mining, the remnants of which can still be found in various parts of the park. The land was used for industrial means for many years, and it wasn’t until 1980 that the land was turned over to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, which helped it become the park that it is today. When you rent a motorhome and visit the park, be sure to keep an eye out from relics of the past like old bridges, dams, and industrial logging paths.

Getting Outdoors

There is a lot to do while motorhome camping near Lehigh Gorge State Park, including biking, hiking, swimming, and more. While exploring the forests and rivers, you’ll be able to hike over 30 miles of trails and bike over 26 miles of trails, a lot of which is built on an abandoned railroad path. These paths will take you past many waterfalls, and you’ll have the chance to spot wildlife like lizards, snakes, birds, and more.

Many waterfalls can be found in Lehigh Gorge State Park, all of which can be accessed on foot. The Glen Onoko Waterfalls are some of the most popular in the park, and when you rent an RV camper near Lehigh Gorge State Park, be sure to bring your swimsuit to fully enjoy the water. The hike to Glen Onoko Waterfalls is just under four miles from the trailhead, and guests should be aware that the trail is rated as difficult and should prepare accordingly.

Given the amount of river available to explore, it should be no surprise that whitewater rafting is a popular sport in the park. There are family-friendly rapids, rated Class I and Class II, in addition to more challenging rapids that are rated Class II and Class III. The river is controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and white water rafting enthusiasts love to visit the park during a dam release day for extra rapids.
