  • My family used to come here often when we had small children. It was always relatively clean and peaceful. Renting a canoe was always the main attraction for us. Nice to explore and see all the wildli...  more »
  • Let me just start off by saying I was not expecting this park to be so big. We decided to start at the boat docks and hike the Manasquan trail. This trail was one of the longer hikes out of the bunch ...  more »

  • This is a great local park. It has nice friendly trails for the family which were well kept - even in January. The park is free and has free parking. There are a number of playgrounds for the kids and plenty of places to picnic. This park was great even on a fall weather like day in January. Monmouth County keeps up its tradition of having an exceptional park system!
  • Went with the Fiance to camp for a night. Very nice camping sites, with some nice walking trails. Pick your site wisely.
  • Great walking paths, but the horses that use them are definitely ruining them, creating a lot of erosion by tearing up the paths and then they fill up with rain water and cause a huge mud pile of a mess. You'd think park employees would use wood chips or something to fill in these treacherous spots each year, but instead each year they get worse with no help from the park at all in fixing them.
  • Very nice park. Decent fishing. A few really nice trails. There's an archery range and camping as well. My only complaint is that the trails to the Nomoco area are not a loop. The park is divided by Nomoco Road.
  • Gorgeous campground with lots of trees and privacy. Large pull through spots with tons of room. 2 really nice playgrounds within a few minutes walk of our campsite, and a lovely small lake where you can fish and rent little boats. 3 washers/ dryers by the bath house. (Pricey: $2 for wash, $2 for dry - but to have them at a county campground is awesome!) The bath house is old and showers have a mildew smell. They are the showers where you push the button and get water for a few minutes, then water turns off by itself. I didn't use them; hubby said water wasn't hot but it was fine. Bathrooms have AC. Only real downfall of this place for longer term camping/ big rigs is no sewer, and only 30amp electric (no 50amp). If business brings us back here again in our RV, we'll absolutely stay here! Highly recommended.
