River Baptisms Permits

A designated baptism site is located at Smithfield Beach about 150 yards south of the swim-beach. Those attending a river baptism will be admitted to Smithfield Beach without having to pay the expanded amenity fee, as long as they only stay for the baptism. If those attending the baptism choose to remain at Smithfield Beach to recreate, picnic, swim, hike, etc. they must pay the expanded amenity fee. There is no fee to apply for a baptism permit; however, a permit is required.
