This image and quote from our most recent newsletter captures the memories that we make at our state parks and forests.
“The swimming area at the “Ore Hole” (a.k.a. Fuller Lake) at Pine Grove Furnace State Park has changed just a bit since this 1950s postcard pic! This is the beach I remember as a kid, when we walked a “goat trail” every day from our cabin… barely visible at the end of the lake, about halfway between the diver and the left edge of the photo. I loved that stone wall, and the two sets of steps leading down into the water. My grandmother and her friends swam around the Ore Hole every afternoon… it was a great “coming of age” moment when I was allowed to accompany them!” (Stu Einstein)
