ENJOY TURKEY SWAMP PARK Photo of trail in Turkey Swamp Park
The site features a lake where visitors can bring or rent canoes, rowboats, kayaks, and paddleboats. Visitors who have a New Jersey fishing license (under 16 license not required) can try their luck with the bass, catfish, and bluegills that call the lake home. The park also offers picnic areas with charcoal grills, children's playgrounds, and plenty of open space to fly a kite, toss a ball, or watch the clouds roll by.

The best way to explore this park is on its 9 miles of multiple use trails. Hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians can enjoy the pitch pine and oak trees of the wooded area while looking for wildlife. Other plants and animals associated with the Pine Barrens can also be found. The park also features an archery range, reserved group areas with open shelter that accommodates up to 250 people (fee), open playing fields, a shelter building with fireplace, and soccer fields for league use.
