    it's a free permit Here.
    you just have to have it on you
    if Approched.

    I Think the Main reason is so they can take the time
    to tell you Where you can Detect, & the rules

    Which are Narrow device for digging,

    so they can Evaluate
    whether they want them or not.

    are a few spots off Limits this year due to Construction,
    And School Projects also.

    Individuals who want to use a metal detector in a state park must receive prior approval from the appropriate park office and report items which are found and will be removed from the park. The reasonable use of metal detectors is permitted in many state parks. Metal detecting is not permitted where this activity would conflict with a facility in use. Metal detecting is not permitted within fenced areas of swimming pool complexes (state operated or concession operated).



    At many parks, metal detecting on beaches and in lake swimming areas will be permitted within a reasonable distance of shore from the Tuesday after Labor Day until the Saturday prior to Memorial Day. During the summer season, metal detecting in beach and swimming areas will be at the discretion of the park manager based on his knowledge of the use and type of facility. Metal detecting in other underwater areas will be permitted within a reasonable distance of shore if it does not conflict with other activities or have the potential for causing damage to the facility.



    Many state park areas have the potential for the recovery of valuable historical objects. State park areas with this potential may have part or all of their area closed to metal detecting. The finding of historical objects in any state park area should be handled by first contacting the park manager of the particular park. In addition, persons should consult the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission if they are seeking or find historical artifacts.



    Shovels, spades, garden trowels, and other similar tools may not be used to dig into or turn over ground areas that are covered by turf, vegetation, shrubs, or trees. Permissible digging tools are screwdrivers, ice picks, and other similar narrow pronged devices.



    The above guidelines only pertain to state park lands. Persons should contact the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and/or the DCNR Bureau of Forestry for guidelines applicable to their lands.

    That's interesting, Jeff. Yours says Memorial lake. Do you need a different permit for each state park? This is a step in the positive direction for Pa.

    Another question. Is the application for this online? I see nothing about needing a permit. It just says prior permission. A permit would be great.

    each state park is different, some require a permit, some require nothing, a few can't be hunted at all. just contact the park director (email or call) and ask what is required.

    I Asked for Swatara, & See it has Memorial also,
    So I'm taking for granted it's good for Both.

    no on online, You must go Down to the Park
    office. in this case, at Memorial Lake
    in the middle of Fort Indiantown gap.

    For many years Swatara was Go help yourself,
    Have Fun ! last few years they added the permit
    system, as they are now Upgrading it to full
    state Park Status.

    Memorial Lake was , Stop at the office say
    I'm gonna detect today &
    back then.

    You familiar with 443 & the Hollywood Casino (Penn National ?)
    if you head East (north ?) from there on 443 till you get to Boundry Road.
    once you turn onto Boundry Road I Believe it's the Second building on the right, after you pass the Church
    only maybe a half mile off 443 maybe not even that far

    I'll see if I Can find a map online I Can link to

    Re: Metal Detection in PA

    Good information. Thanks.

    According to the link Florida is beach only.

    I had inquired at several Florida State Parks.
    I was told metal detecting was not illegal but I cannot remove or keep anything I find.
