Onsite Activities

What to see and do?

Ways to enjoy your visit…
Take time for yourself to relax as you wander the trails, or watch the Susquehanna River flow passed. We’re less than two miles upriver from Tunkhannock and about 10 miles west by road, but you’ll feel like you’re going into the wilderness. Our site is secluded, beautiful, and peaceful.

“The Neck” is the tightest oxbow in the Susquehanna River. It’s comprised of about 1,000 acres surrounded on three sides by the river. Nearly all of this private property is protected from future development. Onsite activities you can enjoy include:

  • Peek at the Birds of Prey in their enclosures
  • Borrow a Fundana and play a game along the trail
  • Skip rocks across the river
  • Search for fossils along the shore
  • Search for butterfles in the Native Plant Garden
  • Bring a snack or lunch to eat at the Overlook or at the picnic table
  • Relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy a very special part of the Endless Mountains
  • Bring a group from school or church for a field trip, groups of 10 or more must have a program with the Nature Center or a facility rental from Camp Lackawanna
