Pike County, located in the Pocono Mountains, is named after Zebulon Montgomery Pike, the discoverer of Pike's Peak. The spectacular beauty of Pike County is reflected in its picturesque mountains, verdant forests, and pristine lakes, streams and waterfalls. Approximately 30% of the county is in public ownership including the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area, state game lands, state forest and state park. In the early 1900s, Pike County was a popular vacation spot for hunters, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts; today, many people make their homes there because of its proximity to the metropolitan areas in New York and New Jersey.
