WRWMG Assists Swartswood State Park with the Development of a Swartswood Lake Self-guided Interpretive Water Trail

Swartswood State Park, with assistance from the WRWMG, and through a grant funding by the NJDEP, has developed a self-guided Interpretive Water Trail map highlighting 15 different sites rich in natural, cultural, and historical resources around the lake.

Swartswood State Park is located on the shores of both Swartswood and Little Swartswood Lakes and straddles the municipal boundary between Hampton and Stillwater Townships. The Park was established in 1915 as New Jersey's first state park, and is open to seasonal and year-round activities such as camping, swimming, fishing, boating, hunting, picnicking, sailing, wildlife viewing, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, and horseback riding.
