Introduction of Memorial Lake State Park

Memorial Lake State Park was established in 1945 and is completely surrounded by Fort Indiantown Gap Military Reservation, the Pennsylvania National Guard’s base of operations. Despite the fact that it is surrounded by the base, it is completely open to the public and there are no checkpoints to get here.

Memorial Lake State Park was named in honour of Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers who fought in World War I and World War II, as you might have guessed from its name and location.
