Gouldsboro State Park is located in northeastern Pennsylvania just minutes away from Tobyhanna State Park. The topography of both parks is one of broad, flat, swampy areas intermixed with low hills covered with a northern hardwood forest. Common tree species are beech, birch and maple. The woodland area offers an inviting habitat for white-tailed deer, black bear, snowshoe hares, squirrels, wild turkey, beaver, fox and raccoons.

Gouldsboro State Park offers fishing in the 250-acre lake, swimming along 850 feet of sandy shoreline, picnicking at over 300 tables and hiking on over 8.5 miles of trails. Ice fishing is a favorite sport during the cold winter months. Designated areas of the park are open to hunting, trapping, and dog training, with the exception of: 1) hunting of woodchucks also known as groundhogs is prohibited and 2) dog training is only permitted from the day following Labor Day to March 31 in designated hunting areas. Pennsylvania Game Commission rules and regulations are in effect for all activities in the park. nParking spaces in Parking Area 1, nearby picnic tables and restrooms are wheelchair accessible.
