Go for a Swim  

To cool off after an exciting hike, take a dip in the lake! The most loved swimming spot in the area is the Palmyra Township Public Beach, which offers on-duty lifeguards, picnic tables, grills, restrooms, and even a snack bar. The beach is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by for a refreshing swim!
