“Near the Base of Blue Mountain!”
Memorial Lake State Park’s 230 acres is near the base of Blue Mountain in East Hanover Township, Lebanon County. The park is surrounded by Fort Indiantown Gap, the headquarters for the Pennsylvania Army and Air National Guard. The U.S. military created Memorial Lake in 1945 to honor the Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers who served in World War I and World War II. As a feature of Fort Indiantown Gap Military Post, the lake provided recreation for soldiers and their families. In 1965, Memorial Lake was transferred to the Department of Forest and Waters (now the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources) and became Memorial Lake State Park. It continues to provide recreational opportunities for military personnel as well as civilians. The 85-acre Memorial Lake supports warm-water fish species including bass, muskellunge, northern pike, yellow perch, white and black crappie, and various species of pan fish and carp. Anglers can access the lake from shoreline, by wading, or by boat. A shoreline fishing access area is along Hillside Trail. An ADA accessible fishing pier is in the Middle Road Day Use Area. No fishing zones include the boat concession area through mooring area, across the dam bridge and dam breast.
