A recreational opportunity is being offered by the Atlantic County Division of Parks and Recreation. You can travel the wild & scenic Great Egg Harbor River with greater ease of access. For a fee of $5.00 (county code 97: 5-4) you may purchase a "vehicle access permit." This permit gives you access to three additional points of entry: One along the Egg Harbor River, one within our Lake Lenape property, and a third in Estell Manor Park along South River. The first entry/removal site is located on a level sandy beach approximately 250 yards north of campsite 18 on the western shore of the lake. This point is excellent for avoiding strong head winds and boat traffic one may encounter on the south end of the lake. No trailers or articulating devices permitted. The second location is Camp Acagisca, a half way point between Weymouth Furnace and Lake Lenape. This site is good for vessel entry or removal. Vessel must be carried from the hilltop parking area to the river. Vessels must be contained in the access vehicle; no trailers or articulating devices permitted. The third entry point is river access at the end of Artesian Well Road in Estell Manor Park. Vehicles with trailers are permitted but must be parked in the trailer lot approximately 150 yards west of the access along Artesian Well Road.
Permits can be obtained one of two ways. You can visit the Lake Lenape Boathouse located at 6303 Old Harding Highway or follow the link below to purchase the permit online.Be sure to have a description of the vehicle, license plate number(s) of the vehicle you will be using. The permit is valid from the time purchased until December 31 of the year acquired.
