The Poconos Mountains are one big amusement park with activities scattered throughout the 2400 square miles of the region of the Poconos Mountains. Bear Creek Lake is in the more southern tier along Rt I-80 called the “Ski region” since all of the major ski resorts are located along Rt I-80. The northern region we call the “lake region” located along Rt I-84 has no major ski resorts, but has more and larger lakes.
