  • Went to the park to see the lighthouse. Nice place to hike to, some small hills enough to get a sweat going, but easy enough to enjoy the views. The Turkey Point Light is well kept. Some good photo op...  more »
  • This is a neat little gem at the end of the park on Turkey Point. Near to camping, and park beach. Draw back-parking is pretty slim  more »
  • We enjoyed hiking at Elk Neck State Park. We did a trail in the front part of the park and then the light house trail as well. There were some trees down on the first trail and we had to turn back bec...  more »

  • We picnicked at the northeast beach. Beautiful view of the bay and a very nice beach. Bathroom facilities are spotless and clean. A good number of grills and tables great way to spend the day. Highly recommended
  • We visited the Turkey Point Lighthouse. It was wonderful! The hike there was pretty easy. It was a wide, gravel covered road with a few mild climbs. Once you arrive, the lighthouse offers spectacular views of the bay. It was closed the day we were there but according to the signs you can climb it on Saturdays and Sundays. I would definitely recommend it for a fun family outing.
  • I enjoyed this park. I went on the Beaver Marsh Trail. It's an interesting trail. I liked the Paw Paw trees. We don't have them in NJ. At least, I've never seen them in NJ 😊
  • The beach was beyond dirty. Plastic and food everywhere. I can deal with driftwood and even a couple dead fish, but a paid place should clean up a little! It was a cool day and we were the only people on the beach. And the FLIES were UNBEARABLE! The swarmed us. We couldn't stay. As we left we saw a little fox pup with bad mange in the parking lot area. Not a single person to be found to inform. I guess the only reason I'm giving it 2 stars is because I grew up going here. But this review is mostly about the beach area 2 weeks ago
  • Been here a couple of times. The view of the bay from Turkey Point Lighthouse is great. The nearby town is really nice too. Parking spots at Turkey Point Lighthouse are limited but you'll probably get a spot after waiting for about 10 minutes on an average.
