  • Could not go swimming when we arrived because water level was too low. Thank goodness we found a Paddle Board and Kayak rental company. We happened upon it almost by accident.There needs to be better ...  more »
  • Being a native of Hunterdon county it makes me sad to see it 1/2 full. I understand it has other purposes. But for a Recreation spot? Not so much. Many other spots to chose from. 
  • So much to do here! The water is VERY low right now, so boating or kayaking can be tough, but there is a ton of trails and so much to see and explore. There is also camping through the State. Set asid...  more »

  • beautiful area. always clean. bathrooms are really clean. horrible toilet paper . showers are really clean.
  • Beautiful place to visit during spring/summer. Over 200 species of birds have been spotted here. I got very good sightings of Indigo buntings, cedar waxwings, green heron, killdeer, yellow warblers and willow flycatcher. My husband did a kayak lesson here with "KayakEast" and it was a very good class. We highly recommend the class, especially beginners, but others also benefit from the great tips provided by the instructor.
  • Huge shoreline and hours of fun walking around on a cloudy weekend afternoon. Clean restrooms. Dozens of people enjoying the lake beach and hundreds of families enjoying the campground and picnic areas.
  • Very quiet even on Labor Day! Great for just bike riding threw it like I did today or picnicking like we did last year!!
  • I've been in this area multiple times previous years and had a pleasant experience. This year I was very unhappy. First negative experience: when I was trying to fly my quadcopter over the water, park police came and told me that I can't do it, because dam on lake is security object, but on all FAA maps this area is clear to fly for UAVs. Second ocuurence: when I took motor boat from rental, engine stopped after 5 min of riding. When I was picking up my friends to ride on a boat from our campsite, boat rental employees told me that I should only pickup people from boat rental area. Last 5 years I didnt have such problems. I hope in the future New Jersey park service will think how to make recreational experience pleasant and stop being nasty.Right now Spruce Run is not very pleasant place, thanks to a personal who works there.
