The Poconos Are One Big Amusement Park
Activities are scattered throughout the 2400 square miles of the region of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Locust Lakes is centered in the Poconos and is located in the more southern tier along Rt I-80. We call this the “Ski region.” All of the major ski resorts are located here. There is a northern tier we call the “lake region” and this is along Rt I-84. There are no major ski areas here, but more and larger lakes.
