Public Survey Purpose

Northampton County is developing a Greenway and Stewardship Plan for the Minsi Lake Corridor located in Upper Mount Bethel Township, in the northeast region of Northampton County.

In 1976, Minsi Lake became the first County park. Since then, the County has continued to expand its conserved land holdings to the current 1,100-acre Minsi Lake Corridor. These lands include Minsi Lake, Bear Swamp, the Archery Complex, and Tott’s Gap Conservation Area including the Twin Ponds, National Park Service Drive, and other contiguous lands. Visitors to the area can participate in a wide range of recreation activities including non-motorized boating, fishing, hiking, wildlife observation, bird watching, archery, and hunting. Additionally, many important and sensitive habitats lie within the corridor making it home to a large and diverse community of plants and animals.

In the following survey, please share how you currently use and experience this area. Your responses will help create a vision for the future of this highly valued open space. The survey should only take 10-15 minutes.

The survey will be available from Feb 17, 2021 until approximately September 26, 2021. Survey responses are not identified by name and your response will be anonymous. All responses will be compiled and be part of the Minsi Lake Corridor Greenway and Stewardship Plan.

This survey is being conducted by Northampton County and Simone Collins Landscape Architecture, planning consultants to the County. For more information, please contact Geoff Creary of Simone Collins at (610) 239-7601 or
