Visitors to the park will have access to the boat ramp, lake surface and hiking trails, however, camping, pavilion rentals and playground access will be prohibited until further notice.

New boating applications are available online at: and can be printed from the webpage, completed and faxed to the parks office at (609) 909-5825 to help expedite the process and limit face-to-face time.
