With a total area of 5,440 acres (2,201 ha), Tobyhanna State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Most of the park is located in Coolbaugh Township in Monroe County, with a tiny fraction also being located in Dreher and Lehigh townships in Wayne County. The 170-acre (69 hectares) Tobyhanna Lake and some of Tobyhanna Creek are located inside the park.
It is situated 2.1 miles (3.4 km) north of the town of Tobyhanna, with the Yellow Hiking Trail portion of the park bordering Pennsylvania Route 196 and the main park entrance on Pennsylvania Route 423. State Game Lands 312, 127, and Gouldsboro State Park in Pennsylvania are all located right next to the park. Here’s a glimpse of Tobyhanna State park Camping through our eyes.
Let’s walk down memory lane to commemorate the history of Tobyhanna State Park Camping. The Tobyhanna State park camping was a former artillery range. A sizable artillery training range that existed before Tobyhanna Army Depot was converted into Tobyhanna State Park, one of the state properties. The DCNR in Pennsylvania claims that it is important for visitors to Tobyhanna State Park to be aware that there may be unexploded artillery munitions in the more secluded and undeveloped regions. The park contains shells of three different sorts. The largest projectile has a diameter of about 6 inches (150 mm), and it is 18 to 24 inches (460 to 610 mm) in length.
The medium projectile measures 10 to 14 inches (250 to 360 mm) in length and 2.5 inches (64 mm) in diameter. The smallest projectile has a diameter of 1.25 inches (32 mm) and a length of 3 inches (76 mm).
The condition of the shells is extremely corroded without any identifiable prints or marks. They have the general appearance of a sharp steel cylinder that has eroded. In order to ensure proper disposal, visitors should not touch, attempt to move or otherwise disturb such items. Instead, they should report the location to the park office by calling without any identifiable prints or marks. They have the general appearance of a sharp steel cylinder that has corroded.

All year long, 300 picnic tables and a picnic pavilion with reservations are available.
Due to its proximity to Interstate 380 to the west-southwest, the park experiences considerable vehicular noise in its western section. Additionally, Pennsylvania Route 423’s traffic noise is audible to the south of the lake. (The Mount Pocono Municipal Airport, located 6.4 km (four miles) to the south, is the source of light air activity. The southern edge of the lake is further disturbed by noise from nearby homes, frequent toilet fans, vending machines, and park upkeep. The yellow route halfway north of its crossing of Tobyhanna Creek, where natural noises predominate the majority of the time, is the park’s quietest area on designated trails.
