  • Overview

    Bass River State Forest was the first forest acquired by the state of New Jersey in 1905 for public recreation and water conservation along with wildlife and timber management. Lake Absegami, a 67-acre lake created in the 1930's, is the center of the forest's recreational activities and provides an area for swimming and a serene setting for boating and canoeing. A trail through the Absegami Natural Area wanders through a pine / oak woods and a small Atlantic white cedar bog. The park features trails, camping, fishing, hunting, picnicking, boating / canoeing, swimming, cross-country skiing and snowmobiles.
