Tips for visiting Beltzville State Park during Memorial Day Weekend

LEHIGHTON, Pa. - Beltzville State Park will likely face extra large crowds and some traffic issues Memorial Day Weekend.

In a news release, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources noted that bridge construction could slow traffic and will require a detour route to get to Pohopoco Drive and the main entrance to the park.

The park also usually hosts larger crowds during holiday weekends.

"Many residents of the Lehigh Valley and Hazleton areas travel to enjoy the picnicking, swimming, boating and hiking available at the park and we are happy to welcome them," Beltzville State Park Manager Devin Buzard said in a statement. "Our first concern is the safety or our visitors, and that's why we want people to be aware of the detour issues and parking restrictions."

For more information about the road closures and detours, please visit the turnpike website.
