George W. Childs Recreation Site


The site is named for George W. Childs, a noted philanthropist, whose  widow deeded the land to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1912.


This picturesque park is part of the Delaware Water Gap National  Recreational Area and includes expansive hemlock groves and cascading  waterfalls along with a picnic area, comfort facilities, and a short  hiking trail along the falls. The site contains three main waterfalls:  Factory Falls, Fulmer Falls and Deer Leap Falls.
