“swimming, some hiking, great family place and fun for everyone. there is picnic areas playground and the cedar creek for swimming. life guard is on duty in the summer. canoe trips down cedar creek are a blast if you love canoeing or kayaking. the water is some of the cleaned fresh water in NJ and empties out in the Barnegat bay near another great park~ Berkeley island! remodeled since Hurricane Sandy wiped it out. Now its wonderful place! also the cedar creek has the Barnegat branch trailer bike and hiking path. its a few miles long and a nature lover gem! ”
