Canoeing Jim Thorpe


We found this beautiful lake when my parents took the grandkids camping a few months ago. We loved Mauch Chunk Lake so much we said we had to return for an afternoon of canoeing.

We packed a picnic lunch, put the canoe on the car and made the 45 minute drive to Jim Thorpe.


There was a shady spot by the lake where we had a nice view of the boaters while we ate. I could see why some locals said this spot was the area's best kept secret. No entrance fee and a tranquil setting.

EJ was quick to put on her life jacket as soon as we finished lunch.


We had enough jackets for both kids to go out at the same time but CJ was content to sit on the bank and watch his sister at first. He likes to observe things before he tries them.

After their long trip around the lake seeing the ducks and watching the fish, he was ready to jump in for a ride.

It was a relaxing afternoon at the lake.
