ENJOY 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. Bait (nightcrawler and garden worms) can be purchased in the Campground Office. 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.

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.
