    Stilling basin at blue marsh?

    Is the stilling basin at blue marsh right off 183 or do you have to go around the backside of the lake. I was never there and from what i understand...the stilling basin is the best place to start from

    Thanks

    The stilling basin is on palisades drive which runs into 183. From 222 take 183 north, after you pass classic harley davidson go about 2 miles there will be a long down hill with a church at the bottom on your left, at that intersection turn left that is palisades drive if you miss the turn you can turn around at the blue marsh canteen.On palisades drive the stilling basin is on your right after the overlook parking lot,there are signs at the entrances

    Coming from 222 & 183, there's a much faster way to get to the stilling basin lot. Make a left at the traffic light @ W. Leesport Rd, follow that until it intersects County Rd, then bear right onto County Rd.

    County Rd dead-ends into Palisades. Turn left on Palisades, and the stilling basin lot is the first driveway on the right.

    On the way back home, you can skip the turn onto Leesport Rd and take County Rd straight up to 183. Make a right and it'll take you back to 222.
