Otter Lake makes your trip to reach us as easy as a
float on the river. The park is located in the Pocono Mountains, just ten (10) miles from the Delaware Water Gap, Interstate 80, and Stroudsburg. We offer easy access from both Interstate highways 80 and 84, yet all of the seclusion and quiet of a remote camping retreat.
Probably the best part of camping at Otter Lake is our direct
proximity to so many of the most popular Pocono attractions,
many only minutes away!
