I believe this is the old Hidden Lake from the 60's and 70's. I spent every day there swimming and building sand castles. It is now been drained and completely grown over. It was a great place to learn Lifesaving because th water was so dark you had to feel your way around to find your drowned swimmer. If youo could survive there you could swim anywhere. What a blast!

In the 50's thrugh early 70's there were so many lakes like this scattered around NJ..and probably outside the reaches of our small world. What destroyed them were the lawsuits and Insurance liability. That's why you cant find these great places anymore..instead you have to go to manufactured waterparks and pay outrageous fees and it's just not the same.
Whoever heard of having a great greased pig contest at Splashworld..or going into the creek behind the waterpark to retrieve the watermelon for after we were exhausted from swimming in the lake all day?
We used to go to Sunshine Lake and Lonnie Lake (Voorhees I think)for great church picnics... which are now just housing developments.
These are our "remeber when" stories that we will tell our children..past good times that likely we will not see anything like again.
There was a Lake Lonnie in Delran which was popular and is now owned by the township as a park, so it's still there.

I remember Holiday Lakes in the 60's and early 70's. At poolside, Hap used to make me wear a bathing cap and would accuse me of taking it off in the water. I remember Mr. & Mrs. Universe owned a Cabana there. They were friendly people. I do remember the German Lady at the custard stand. Also, the lifeguards were awesome and cute. Every year they would coax me to dive off of the High Dive so I would have the confidence to dive. I have wonderful and Happy memories from there and was sad to learn that it closed down.
