Searching for Munitions at Tobyhanna S.P.

Park rangers are warning visitors to Tobyhanna State Park or to the nearby state game lands to call 911 if they see anything metal- looking while walking in the park.

Tobyhanna State Park and the state game lands to the west of the park used to be the site of an artillery range.

It hasn’t been used for that since the end of World War II, but there are still live artillery shells inside the park.

That’s why a special crew of people come back every year to find the shells and then detonate them. Every spring for the past 15 years the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has come to Tobyhanna State Park with metal detectors in hand.
