  • Great place to go with the family. Whether it's swimming, fishing, hiking, camping or just going for a picnic. Was just there for their summer concert series. Very nice place to sit and relax and listen to the band play while the kids play in the sand on the beach.
  • Best kept secret in New Jersey. Great trails, beautiful views and great cross country skiing. Also snowshoeing and swimming. Many sights set up for barbecuing. Oh yeah, there is also camping and fishing. The park is proudly cared for by the rangers.
  • Great park with different types of trails to suit your taste. Swamp trail is beautiful. View from the monument is great.
  • Very good place to visit in Winter as well as summer. It a big park having man made beach, lake, and a monument. It also have barbecues, gazebos, benches, hiking, tables, etc. Good place to go.
  • High Point State park is an awesome place to go on holidays for kids. Nice beach kind of pond. We went during fall season and the scenic beauty you see will remember always.
