There are three small lakes on the Kittatinny Ridge within the DWG that were created as part of a summer home community in the late '40s/early '50s, Crater Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, and Hemlock Pond. After the land was bought up by the Army Corps in the late 1960s the owners were forced out and the homes were eventually demolished, but the lakes remain. The nice thing about them is that they are swim at your own risk, unlike the lakes and ponds on state park land which are either lifeguard only or no swimming at all. Blue Mountain Lake is the first one you come to after turning off of Old Mine Road onto Flatbrookville-Stillwater Road. There is a paved parking area and it's a short walk to the lake. There are bathrooms and a small beach area, but you can basically set up anywhere around the lake.

You used to be able to drive to Crater Lake via Flatbrookville-Stillwater Road to Skyline Drive, but that is still blocked. Finally, there's Hemlock Pond, but the road has long been closed to vehicular traffic. It's a two mile hike over easy terrain to get there. I was thinking of bringing a wagon to haul my toddler, our beach chairs, and grill there in order to get away from the crowds at Blue Mountain Lake this Summer. Crater and Blue Mountain used to get really crowded on nice Summer weekends, so with Crater inaccessible (way too far to walk) Blue Mountain will be a lot more crowded. Self contained propane camp grills are allowed-no open fires or charcoal grills. Alcohol is allowed as well, but I keep it in cups/low key anyway.

It's a great place to bring the kids and the dogs when the weather is nice. I live right between Round Valley and Spruce Run Reservoirs but we never go there to swim-its too crowded and there a million rules (swimming in designated areas only, no dogs, no grills, no alcohol, etc...), so it's worth the hour drive to the Gap.
