Picnic & swimming - Went there with a group on Aug 28...the grounds are great for a day out. However the bathrooms were spotless at 8:30, but by 10am they were a disgusting mess that just got worse. If a Parkway reststop can be kept clean all day, so can 4 bathrooms. Half the adjacent beach area was closed but had 2 lifeguards in one chair...maybe one could have moved 75 feet and sat by himself and avoinded terrible overcrouding? Beaches were also closed for 45 min 3 times so both life guards could take their break together instead of staggering them. As a park the people that were there that day made a mess, there was no Ranger control and do not listen to instructions. One person was told not to fish 5 times over the loud speaker, but just kept walking back and fishing and there were no rangers in sight all day. This facility is to be closed M-F Aug 29- Sept 3 and then open for the final Holiday weekend. I think new management is warranted, as this is a beautiful area. I would love to come back, but not on the weekend.

My favorite hideaway in college - I used to go up there alone or with my gf when i was in college Times at Seton Hall we had to get out of Essex County, and we would sit by roaring stream or by the lake all day

Memories - Camped in the cabins in 1940 and 1941 with Boy Scout Troop 19 (I think), Hackensack, New jersey. Winter and summer. Assisted CCCs put out a forest fire in 1941. Pulled 4-6 sleds behind a 1938 Ford wood side station wagon in couple feet of snow. Wonderful place.

Friendly and Welcoming - My friends and I wanted to try and ride our bikes from coast to coast in New Jersey, we stopped at this park to use the bathroom and maybe buy some water. The park ranger told us that we had to pay $2.00 each! Thank you....never visit this crap park.

Great place for birdwatchers! - I am an amateur birdwatcher and this is our first visit in the park this early summer. I took a lot of pics and great shots of different birds with my Nikon D7100 including Bald Eagles. We have an awesome day. I will visit the park in the fall again.
