Beltzville State Park reopens for swimming, bacteria counts lower
Beltzville State Park is open again for swimming. The swimming area was closed Friday due to high levels of bacteria. The swimming area was closed as a precaution last week when a water sample showed higher levels than the state allows.
The water was retested and the swimming area/beach has reopened.
Beltzville State Park features a 525-foot sand beach which is usually open from late-May to Labor Day, from 8 a.m. to sunset. The beach is a swim at your own risk location and there are posted rules to follow for swimming. A bathhouse is located near the beach.
