Take This Unforgettable Road Trip To 6 Of New Jersey’s Least-Visited State Parks

New Jersey’s least-visited State Parks make for excellent places to spend a day outdoors, exploring the Garden State. Take a two-day trip (or a really long day trip!) to find beauty at the beach, in the Pine Barrens, and up in the Skylands and you’ll get to see a variety of landscapes that make New Jersey such an amazing place to live! You’ll start off in Bass River State Forest and make your way all the way up to New Jersey’s very first State Park, Swartswood, all the while avoiding crowded trails and parking lots because these are the quietest parks around.

The entire trip takes under four hours of driving time, although you’ll want to carve out more time to stop. You can find the whole road trip itinerary here.
