Fishing Description: 

The 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon is a warm-water fishery. Common species are walleye, muskellunge, pickerel, smallmouth and largemouth bass, striped bass hybrids, channel catfish, carp and various types of panfish.


Camping and open fires are prohibited in Nockamixon State Park. Camping is available at nearby private campgrounds. Information is available at the park office.

Boat Ramp: 

The 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon has four public launching areas. The Marina and Tohickon launch ramps are popular with sailboat, catamaran and windsurfing enthusiasts. Three Mile Run and Haycock launch facilities are favored for motorboats, kayaks and inflatable watercraft. Launching facilities are open 24 hours a day.

There is a fishing pier at the midpoint of the lake in the Day Use Area and an ADA accessible fishing platform near the Haycock Boat Launch.


The Marina has docking facilities for 648 boats up to 24 feet in length and a 120-space dry storage area for boats on trailers. Because of the tremendous demand for marina space a waiting list is maintained at the park office for seasonal slips or dry storage spaces. Marina slips may be rented on a short-term basis as available. Contact the marina office or park office for additional information and applicable rates.

A boat rental concession has canoes, motorboats, rowboats, paddleboats, kayaks and pontoon boats during the summer season. Call directly to the boat rental for applicable rates and regulations. 215-538-1340
