The largest lake in the Poconos region, Lake Wallenpaupack is known for swimming, boating, fishing, and other summertime watersports and activities. This is a popular spot for visitors for a variety of reasons, and the scenery and activities are just the beginning. The returning visitors call it Lake Wally as they have become fond of it, and new visitors fall in love, too.
Around the lake are several towns, and the historic town of Hawley sits just to the north of the lake. In this town you can find plenty of historic atmosphere along with great restaurants and nice shops.
The combination of Hawley and Lake Wally provide the perfect destination to experience the best of the Poconos: small town life on a lake full of fantastic summer fun. You'll have restaurants, shops, boating, swimming, fishing, antiques, bars, swimming pools, A-Frame houses, the mountains and nature, and more. You can't get more quintessentially "Poconos" than this!
