Aylesworth Creek Lake is a US Army Corps of Engineers dam control project with a drainage area of 6.2 miles. The project was operationally complete in October 1970 with the reservoir extending 4,600 feet upstream. The recreation area is operated and maintained by Lackawanna County. Nestled in the upper valley, Aylesworth Park was created as the result of a U.S. Army Corp of Engineers dam control project in 1970.

The picturesque location makes it a perfect spot for lake swimming, fishing, picnicking or a stroll around the new lake trail. The park is currently undergoing various facility upgrades.This 4-acre lake features a beach, picnic area and hiking trails and is located near East Jermyn, in Lackawanna County, about 10 miles upstream from Scranton on US 6.
