These 12 State Parks In New Jersey Will Knock Your Socks Off

New Jersey has over three dozen state parks and forests, each incredible in their own way. You’ll find opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and even a few historic sites in our state park system! There is so much to explore, and tremendous beauty to be found. While I highly recommend that you visit all of the parks at some point, the following dozen are a great place to get started.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Remember, our state parks are free in the fall – the perfect time for a breathtaking foliage hike! On or off this list, which is your favorite park to visit each autumn?
