The 5,283-acre Nockamixon State Park surrounds the 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon. The park's forests and fields are a large green space in this rapidly developing area. In northern Bucks County, the park also serves Lehigh, Northampton and Philadelphia counties.
History of the Area
The name Nockamixon comes from the American Indian phrase "nocha-miska-ing" which is Lenni Lenape for "at the place of soft soil." Several American Indian sites from the Lenni Lenape Tribe (Delaware) are documented in the park area.

Secretary of the Department of Forests and Water, Dr. Maurice K. Goddard, proposed the park in 1958. The park was developed with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers plan for development in the Delaware River Basin. Originally known as Tohickon State Park after the principal stream flowing into Lake Nockamixon, it was renamed Nockamixon State Park by the State Geographic Board in 1965. The park officially opened in December of 1973.
Cabins
Located on the south side of Lake Nockamixon, ten modern cabins are available for rentals throughout the year. Each cabin contains a furnished living area, kitchen/dining area, toilet/shower room, two or three bedrooms and are equipped with electric heat. One cabin is accessible.
Swimming
Swimming:

The swimming pool complex includes a one-half acre pool with two water slides and a children's shallow end with fountains, dressing rooms, first aid station and snack bar. The swimming pool is operated by a concession and an admission fee is charged. Seasonal passes are available. Weather permitting, the swimming pool is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day, unless otherwise posted.

My husband would like to know when the Ironman Trialthon is going to be this year for Ottsville Vol Fire Police?
August 5 Beautiful Cabin Weekend
We often will rent a cbain or two for the weekend. The park is very clean and the cabins are excellent! We have always had a wonderful time each spring and fall when we come. We only live about 40 minutes away, but its nice to have a change of scenery and enjoy some outdoor cooking and boating for the weekend. The kids love it to! Give it a try.
