The beach at a state park in Carbon County is closed Thursday due to high levels of bacteria.

Beltzville Lake Beach near Lehighton is closed to swimming because high bacterial levels were found in water samples, according to the state department of conservation and natural resources.

The beach will remain closed as a precaution until bacteria levels return to normal levels in water samples.

Officials said other activities at the park remain open.
