Bass River State Forest
Encompassing 27,635 acres of land, Bass River State Forest in Tuckerton was established in 1905 by the New Jersey Legislature. During the 1930s and 1940s, the men employed through the Civilian Conservation Corps built trails, bridges, roads, lookout towers, ponds, cabins, shelters, and lakes, including the 67-acre Lake Absegami.
For a day of fun on the water, bring along your canoe (or rent one) for paddling on the lake or drop in a line to try your best at fishing for sunfish, catfish, and pickerel. Enjoy trekking along the 50-mile Batona Trail through the forest and keep a lookout for the birds and animals along the way. Enjoy walking through the Absegami Natural Area, featuring a wetland forest with Atlantic white cedars and red maple trees.
