The Poconos Mountains are 1 BIG amusement park. Things to do are scattered over the 2400 sq. mi. of the region. Lake Harmony is in the more western section of the Southern tier along Rt I-80 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. We call this the “Ski region” since all of the major ski resorts are located here. The other region is the more northern area we call the “lake region.” This area is along Rt I-84 with no major ski resorts, but more and larger lakes.
