Dingmans Ferry was originally right on the Delaware River in an area that’s now included in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area but the Army Corps of Engineers acquired the land in the mid-20th century for the creation of the Tock Island dam project and that is why Dingmans ferry is now further up the hill and away from the river.
An interesting fact about this is that the Dingmans Ferry Bridge in Dingmans Ferry is one of the few remaining privately owned toll bridges in America. It will cost you the same as traveling over the Milford bridge which costs one dollar.
This is a beautiful area with several communities within such as Birchwood Lakes, Pocono Mountain Water Forest, Hemlock Farms, Hideout Property Association, Marcel Lakes Estates, and Wild Acres Homeowners Association. It is a small town and as of 2014 and only has about 7500 people living there. If you’re looking for privacy, being able to commune with nature, enjoy hiking, swimming, hunting, fishing and camping this is certainly a great place to live
