Turkey Swamp Park

Freehold, NJ (187 miles)

About

Everyone loves lakeside activities, especially those who visit Turkey Swamp Park! With access to bring or rent canoes, rowboats, kayaks, and paddleboats it seems impossible to run out of fun. In addition to the boating, you're welcome to try your luck at fishing out the bass, catfish, and bluegills that call the lake home. The park also offers picnic areas with charcoal grills, children's playgrounds, and plenty of open space to fly a kite, toss a ball, or watch the clouds roll by. The best way to explore this park is on its 9 miles of multiple use trails. Hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians can enjoy the pitch pine and oak trees of the wooded area while looking for wildlife. Other plants and animals associated with the Pine Barrens can also be found. The park also features an archery range, reserved group areas with open shelter that accommodates up to 250 people (fee), open playing fields, a shelter building with fireplace, and soccer fields for league use.
