Clementon Park To Be Auctioned Off
One of the most incredible stories of 2020 was the story of Indiana Beach. The park, closed and abandoned by Apex Park Group LLC, was bought and thrived under new ownership. Enthusiasts were hopeful that a similar outcome could occur with Clementon Park, an historic park that closed at the end of 2019.
A listing on the Capital Recovery Group LLC’s website appears to indicate that Clementon Park (also known as Clementon Lake Park) won’t be coming back.

Clementon Park was founded in 1907, and grew over the next several decades. The park was known for their coasters-Jack Rabbit and it’s successor Hellcat. The park eventually wound up in the ownership of Premier Parks LLC, before the park was quietly shut down at the end of the 2019 season.
