Swimming - 6/19/2009
In the summer, the Harvey Gap Swim Beach is a great place to beat the heat. You will find the beach at the south entrance to the park. The day use fee is $6.00. The beach has shaded picnic tables with grills, trash cans and restrooms. Pets and glass containers are not permitted on the beach. There is no lifeguard, so swimming is at your own risk.
