Beautiful and relaxing. A six mile walking path around the lake nature at it's best. There is a place to rent boats by the our or half day priced well. You can also bring your own boat. Just the place to relax when the crush of Hershey park has gotten to much. There are bbq grills and Pitts around also... More

Good place to walk and exercise and you can rent canoe's or small boats. Fishing is possible, but adults need a permit.

I've been going to Memorial Lake for years with my family. This past Wednesday my son and I finally rented a Kayak, right there on the lake from Green Way Outdoors! Our kayaks were pristine and we had an amazing time! At only $15/hr for a kayak you can't go wrong! Plenty of places to see and explore and 90%... More

Memorial Lake is a peaceful retreat with lots to do, hiking around the lake is my favorite thing to do, fishing, canoeing, picnicking are also fun.

Walking, fishing, boating ,picnicking, volleyball, swings, places to run and play, great place to walk your dog or walk yourself. Children and adults alike will have a great time and it is all for free unless you rent a boat.

Whether you're looking to cook out, let the kids run around, boat, fish, or just walk around, this is a great place to visit. If I recall correctly the walk around the lake is just over 2 miles and allows you to see a lot of the park. You can walk through the woods or on the paved path. I've... More

The park is a great place to go for a picnic or to take a walk around the lake. Fishing is best done by boat and they have some nice Pike fishing in the lake.

We often visit Memorial Lake since we live only 10 miles away. There is no fee and there are a number of parking areas which are often lacking in state parks. The park is seldom crowded and the area is well kept. Restrooms are available in two locations seasonally. The park is used by fishermen, walkers with or without dogs,... More

Not very crowded, lots of grills and picnic tables too. The lake is OK, not sure about fishing but boat traffic is sparse. Location is near military base and easy to find from the interstate. Would definitely recommend.

Memorial Lake SP is a great place for running or trail walking. Scenery is beautiful around the lake and there is a lot to take in here. There is also a series of geocaches around the lake if your into geocaching.
