Lake-Wallenpaupack is a large man-made lake located in the northeastern Pocono Mountains. Built in 1927, the lake is 57,000 acres, 13.5 miles long with 52 miles of shoreline. The lake has six different recreation areas featuring hundreds of acres of forest lands, wildlife, walking trails, campsites and boat slips. The original survey of the lake region shows that there was a 12,150-acre parcel of land that was transferred from William Penn to James Wilson. James Wilson was one of only four men who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution of the United States in 1787. He was also appointed to the First Supreme Court of the United States by President George Washington. Today, Lake Wallenpaupack is a popular recreational lake for swimming, boating, fishing and ice skating and ice fishing in the wintertime. The lake is stocked with smallmouth and largemouth bass, rock bass, bluegill, walleye, northern pike, rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, catfish, yellow perch and other species. Lake Wallenpaupack is surrounded by thousands of lakefront homes and lakefront property, with a variety of residential and vacation home communities. The name, "Wallenpaupack," means "the stream of swift and slow waters."

Lake Wallenpaupack Weather & Climate

The Catskill Mountains  has a climate with many variations depending on the elevation. There is a totally different winter in the mountains and the higher plateaus over 1,000 feet. There, the grip of winter is strong and steady, and above freezing temperatures are less common. Average January temperatures are three to four degrees colder at elevations from one to two thousand feet and over seven degrees colder at elevations above two thousand feet. Snowfall is fairly uniform during the month of January in the Catskills. The third week of July is generally the hottest time of the year in the Catskills, and rainfall during the warm months is usually confined to a few days rather than spread throughout the month. September has warm days, cool nights and fog at dawn over the Hudson valley. By October the hills are a kaleidoscope of color, and the first hard freeze is usually at the end of October.
