Greeley, Pennsylvania is a town in Pike County, Pennsylvania, United States, approximately halfway between Milford, Pennsylvania and Hawley, Pennsylvania. Its population is 1322. Lake Greeley Camp is named after this town.

Greeley is a rural, heavily wooded section of Pike County, with no central town square. It is mostly established summer camp grounds and state game lands. Camp Shohola, Pine Forest Camp, Lake Greeley Camp, Camp Timber Tops, and Lake Owego Camp are popular summer camps for children and teens throughout the tri-state area. Camp Lee Mar, a camp in Greeley for developmentally delayed youths, has been in operation for over 55 years.

The town is actually under the administrative control of the municipality of nearby Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania, which lies at the convergence of the Delaware and Lackawaxen rivers within the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. Prolific western author Zane Grey began his writing career in Lackawaxen, relating stories of his experiences along the Upper Delaware River.
