Penn Lake Park is a small and picturesque residential haven that is clandestinely located between White Haven and Bear Creek, PA, in the Pocono Mountains. Penn Lake Park has been in existence since 1938, mostly as a summer vacation community, but has increasingly become the place to live year round. There are always plenty of things to do. Swimming, boating or fishing, and if that’s not enough you can always get a workout on the tennis and basketball courts, or simply biking around the lake.
In 1974, Penn Lake Park was incorporated and became a borough with its own Mayor and Council governing body. Although there are no churches, stores or industry within Penn Lake Park, all are easily accessible by driving a short distance either to White Haven or Bear Creek.
