A designated baptism site is located at Smithfield Beach about 150 years south of the swim-beach. Those attending a river baptism will be admitted to Smithfield Beach without having to pay the expanded amenity fee, so long as they only stay for the baptism. If those attending the baptism choose to remain at Smithfield Beach to recreate, picnic, or swim, they must pay the expanded amenity fee. There is no fee to apply for a baptism permit;however, a permit is required.
For more information about baptism permits, call (570) 426-2440 or email the park's special use coordinator.
