Pocono-Lake is a community in Monroe County in the Pocono Mountains resort region of Pennsylvania. It's located south of the community of Tobyhanna. Pocono Lake is the site of many vacation homes, many of them available as vacation rentals for visitors of the area. The Pocono Mountain region is a popular vacation area in the state, located mainly in Monroe and Pike counties, with a portion in Wayne and Carbon Counties. The entire region has an estimated population of about 350,000, but there isn't a major municipality in the Poconos. Many people from New York and New Jersey, as well as the larger cities of Pennsylvania, have vacation homes in the area. This is a lush, forested region that is well-known for the outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking, fishing, camping and other sports. The Poconos encompasses the Delaware State Forest, including six designated natural areas. Also in the area are 7 state parks, 17 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. Numerous ski resorts dot 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 Pocono Mountains region.
