Monroe County-  A nice weekend to be outdoors camping, hiking..but one element is missing...No Swimming at the Tobyhanna State Park
  The water is tested once every few days.
 Park rangers say the bacteria  was high and they had to close the lake to swimming.
   Some of those enjoying a long holiday weekend at the park were upset but others took the news in stride.
The lake at Tobyhanna State Park is usually open two weekends past Labor Day.
     For now, anyone hoping to swim can go to the nearby Gouldsboro State Park.
