The Underrated New Jersey Lake That’s Perfect For A Summer Day

Everyone knows about our beautiful oceanfront beaches but New Jersey is also home to some spectacular lakes. Most residents are probably aware of the more popular destinations including Lake Hopatcong, Round Valley Reservoir, and Atsion Lake; the lakes in our state parks tend to stand out. However, all New Jerseyans should know about the incredible lake tucked away in one of our county parks.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The park has plenty to offer, making it a perfect day trip destination and the inflatables and paddle boats only add to the fun. Sunrise Lake is open Tuesday-Sunday, and weekend admission is $7 for adults and $6 for children and seniors. Children aged 4 and under are free; weekday rates are $1 less.
