DCNR to Discuss Parking and Crowd Concerns at Beltzville State Park, Says Heffley
PALMERTON – The operation of Beltzville State Park will be the focus of a public meeting hosted by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (DCNR) Bureau of State Parks on Thursday, Jan. 17, according to Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon).

The informational session will take place from 4-8 p.m. at the Towamensing Township Volunteer Fire Company, 105 Firehouse Road in Palmerton. The meeting was originally scheduled in November but had to be postponed due to inclement weather.

“My office received numerous calls last summer from concerned residents related to overcrowding and parking at the park,” said Heffley. “During the upcoming meeting, state officials will provide us with an update on the Beltzville use and impact study that has been undertaken to identify and address these problems. I encourage anyone interested in the future of Beltzville State Park to attend.”

Heffley added that attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of representatives from a variety of stakeholder groups, including the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, state government, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Penn State University, DCNR park personnel and others.
