I grew up in this area and have gone to Jacobsburg hundreds of times. I love walking the trails especially the ones next to the stream. There are historical buildings that you can tour also. I just love to walk there.

This is a really terrific state park close to home. Not only are there bathrooms, but there are trails that anyone can hike, even your dog (on a leash)! There are miles of trails from very easy to mid-range and everything is close enough together...More

Yes, I personally saw several persons fishing here and there. And that stretch of the Bushkill appears to have some great spots for fishing.
