The most notable feature of Lacawac Sanctuary is Lake Lacawac - a 52 acre glacial lake preserved in almost pristine condition (totally free from development or encroachment). The Lake was declared a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department...more

Lovely and educational easy hike.

Thanks for visiting! We hope you will come back often.
We have been to Lacawac many times enjoying the diverse hiking trails, the nature center (when open) and the old original buildings of the camp.
They have lots of events and guided walks throughout the year.
Definitely worth a stop!
Very nice sanctuary in the middle of the Poconos! Good small visitors center (with restroom), with information about the sanctuary , and trail maps. The trails are easy to follow and well-marked, and the LL trail we followed had QR codes you could scan with...More
