Wallenpaupack is from the Lenape language and has been interpreted as "deep, dead water" or "the stream of swift and slow water."
Approximately 13 miles (21 km) of the lower Wallenpaupack Creek lies buried beneath Lake Wallenpaupack, a reservoir created when the utility Pennsylvania Power and Light (PPL) dammed the creek in 1926 as a water supply for a 44-megawatt hydroelectric power plant.
