  • The water is interesting, it’s shades of red, it’s from the cedar trees. The beach is clean and the water is well guarded. There is a snack stand and the food is delicious. Everyone is friendly, it’s....  more

  • I came here for hiking once about 2.5 years ago. This lake is beautiful. It has a recreation area with huge parking lot and a nice beach, and of course hiking trails. Then one day, on March 4, 2022 after I hiked in Batsto Village area, I planned to come here to watch sunset, only turned out that the gate to the recreation area was locked. So I drove to another side of the road, Atsion Road but found out that there were camping cabins all alongside with locked access. No way to access to the lake. So I guess it’s only open during warm seasons. But anyways, I found a roadside spot on Route 206 to watch sun setting down from another side of the lake, which was breathtaking! Check out my pictures and videos for it.
  • Beautiful lake! Such a nice facility. Lovely lake with a pleasant water temperature. Be prepared for the “tea” water tinted by cedar trees. In fact, per Wikipedia, “The name Atsion comes from the Lenni Lenape Unami language. It was the name for the strong, cedar-colored stream in which the tribe called Atsayunk, or Atsiunc” The lake is fed by the Mullica River. They rent kayaks and SUP right on the beach! Full menu, drinks, clean bathrooms and showers. They have a free “surf chair” (wheelchair) which is wonderful! Fabulous lake.
  • Don’t believe what you read. If you google are pets allowed here it says on a leash. I just got here & a sign is painted on the fence “ no pets”. It’s very disheartening to drive all the way here & you can’t even get out of the car. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
  • Great family vacation. Extremely reasonable and beautiful cabins. We will be booking our next summer's vacation before this summer is over.
  • Great place with a lake, playgrounds, BBQ grills, camp sites, bathroom and kayak rentals.
