Lackawanna State Park boat concessionaire will not be in operation this season.  Our longstanding concessionaire has decided to retire this season.

Bridge repair on Route 407 will begin June 2, 2021 and persist through November 2021.


There will be 3 traffic lights, one on each side of the Route 407 bridge and one located at the park entrance controlling traffic flow.


Throughout the duration of this project boating access will be permitted through the center span of the bridge.


There will be a pedestrian barrier to allow foot traffic over the 407 bridge throughout the project.  This path will change sides as the work moves from one side of the bridge to the other. Signage will be posted along 407, the pedestrian path over the bridge, the boat passage under the bridge and at each boat launch.  Visitors should use care and pay close attention to signage when transiting the park.

SPOT THE PROBLEM. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect that poses a serious threat to Pennsylvania’s resources, businesses, and economy. To date, our park does NOT have these pests. Help us stay lanternfly free and stop the spread. Visit the Penn State Extension’s Spotted Lanternfly website to learn how to identify it, report it, and inspect your vehicle or gear when traveling to and from the quarantine zone.
