TOBYHANNA STATE PARK — UPDATE: State officials reopened Tobyhanna State Park beach to swimmers Friday.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources closed the beach to swimming because of high bacterial levels in the water Thursday. The DCNR posted signs on the beach warning visitors.

Other activities at the state park are still allowed, including picnicking, fishing, boating, and hiking.

The beach reopened after acceptable water test samples were taken.

    Gouldsboro has a ranger who after Labor Day prevents people from swimming simply because the ropes have been taken down and the DCNR deems the season to be over.

    You can drown in mid summer with nobody around as long as there are ropes, but heaven forbid you swim in late summer or the fall.

    No money for life guards, but money for some tyrant with a gun and a bage.
