aerial.jpgWoodloch is tucked into the rolling Pocono Mountains of Pike County, Pennsylvania. Pike County is a green resource in itself. Only one third of the county is available for real-estate. Due to marsh land and state game land most of it will stay green naturally. Pike County is spackled with the most southern of Glacial Lakes. The variety of old and young growth forest lends a dreamy quality to our green spaces, and provides the perfect habitat for a variety of wildlife. The Lackawaxen and Delaware Rivers cut through our area with majestic rapids and towering trees harboring nesting Bald Eagles. Visit the following sites for more info on our area, as well as general tips for going and staying green.
