Check back on July 7, 2022 when this blog will be updated! Beautiful, scenic and majestic: all words associated with the Pocono Mountains. Our region boasts awe-inspiring views over 2,400 square miles of grand landscape and outdoor adventure, and a clear evening sky becomes the perfect canvas for the setting sun to show off its artistic skills. With an abundance of waterways and peaks, there are plenty of different locations to catch a breathtaking sunset.

With your help, we've gathered snapshots of six of the most stunning sunset spots in the area. Don't forget to follow @PoconoTourism on Instagram and social media for even more sunset photos, and share your own with the hashtag #PoconoMtns. We also need your help to keep our natural splendor pristine: do your part to Pick Up the Poconos and leave no trace when you visit.

Big Pocono State Park


For a 360-degree panorama of the evening colors, head to Big Pocono State Park in Tannersville, PA. There are over 1,300 acres of rugged terrain to explore and hike, but visitors can also drive up to the summit of Camelback Mountain to take in the expansive views along scenic Rim Road.


The Inn at Tyler Hill


When you stay at the Inn at Tyler Hill, you can take in a gorgeous sunset just steps from your room. This bed and breakfast retreat offers a beautiful view of the surrounding rolling hills and farmlands.

Promised Land State Park


Soak in golden hour with your pooch at your side! Promised Land State Park in Greentown, PA is pet-friendly, and with two lakes, there are plenty of vantage points perfect for enjoying the last light of the day.


Blue Mountain


How about dinner with a view? The Slopeside Pub and Grill is a skier’s and snowboarder’s paradise in winter, but sunset chasers can find delicious food and beautiful vistas from the peak of Blue Mountain at any time of year.


Lake Wallenpaupack


Sunsets on Lake Wallenpaupack have twice the drama, as the sky’s colors are reflected in the lake’s 5,700 rippling acres. Why not book a boat rental with local outfitters to enjoy a summer evening on the water? Every Wallenpaupack sunset is different: watch more than one and find a place to stay close to the water’s edge, like East Shore Lodging, where the above photo was taken.


Up in the Sky


Take your Pocono sunset experience to new heights! Fly up amongst the pink and purple clouds during an aerial tour with Moyer Aviation. Choose from popular flight plans or customize your own.



Pocono Mountain sunsets are spectacular in all four seasons, but they’re especially magical coming after summer’s extra hours of lingering daylight. From sunrise to sunset, see what the longest day of the year looked like all over the Poconos in our summer solstice time lapse video below.



There are even more beautiful views as well as tasty dishes to discover at our region’s restaurants, plus plenty of take out options to provide a sunset picnic. Take advantage of special offers and plan a stay at welcoming local accommodations to give yourself time to enjoy a whole weekend or even week of sunsets!
