We visited Mauch Chunk Lake Park in Jim Thorpe when there was still a nip in the air, which means we had the beach to ourselves. Not that I am complaining. Solitude is bliss. Especially when you are on a beach in the middle of Pennsylvania’s Carbon County. Popular in summer, desolate on a cold Spring day, Mauch Chunk Lake Park began as a flood control measure. Now it has camping, swimming, picnicking, hiking, biking, fishing, and boating.
Go back in summer, shall we?
