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.
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.

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.

Nature Programs
The park offers environmental education and interpretive programs which explore a wide variety of ecological and environmental topics.

School group programming for all grade levels and teacher workshops can be arranged. Scout, church, civic and private groups can also arrange for special programs. Advanced scheduling for group programming is required.

All programs are available from April to October. For more information, contact the environmental education specialist at the park office.
