Bear-Creek-Lake is a borough located in Luzerne County in northeastern Pennsylvania. As of the 2000 census, the population was 284 residents. Bear Creek Lake is conveniently located off Route 903, close to exit 74 off the northeast extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Bear Creek Lake is private and secluded and offers amenities such as a 137-acre lake with beach, tennis courts, an outdoor swimming pool and clubhouse. Bear Creek Lake is also minutes from all the outdoor recreational opportunities of the Pocono Mountains resort area. The Poconos encompass the Delaware State Forest, including six designated natural areas. Also in the Bear Creek Lake area are seven state parks, seventeen state game lands and one national park - the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Towards the southern end of the Poconos is the Appalachian Trail, and in autumn the Poconos are known for its brilliant colors, which makes it great for scenic drives and hiking. Numerous ski resorts are located in the area, campgrounds are plentiful, and the Pocono Raceway is a major auto racetrack, home to two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races. Gaming is also available at two resorts in the Poconos region.
