The beach area is closed to public use and large group use of the picnic areas is prohibited. Park Rangers are still on duty and will be disbursing any large groups they come upon while on patrol.
The visitor center is closed to the public. The staff is still working, but the ranger station and administration building are closed to the public. If you need to contact a staff member, please call 610-376-6337 to make arrangements.
