  • I grew up in this neighborhood and i know this park like the back of my hand! Nature at its finest! Great place for photography, swings for the kids, take a bike ride, a jog, or a walk! Go all the way to the end and explore the roads less taken. ALWAYS CHECK YOURSELF FOR TICKS
  • Entrance looks nice, but as soon as you get to the bogs horse flies attack you which have no regard to deep woods bug spray. Boats are also all around causes noise pollution and you can see homes everywhere. If you want to experience nature, not the place to do it. Had to cut my hike short, because I couldn't stand the bugs.
  • Love this park. Clean. Well maintained with lots of trails nicely marked. Only downside was amount of ticks. Despite my dogs Sorreto anti tick collar I picked 4 off her and 3 off me. Will wait until the fall to follow the trails
  • We anchored off beach, walked to beach from 4ft deep water and Sandy bottom. Peaceful and not crowded. A few other boats and PWC's up to beach. Great day on the water.
  • Great spot to enjoy the Jersey Shore. My favorite thing to do here is anchor 10 foot off the beach of Cattus and Wade in the water. It's great for all other aspects as well
