Imagine looking out from the highest peak in New Jersey, the pristine sandy shores or miles of forest as far as the eye can see. From the Highlands to the Pinelands - New Jersey’s state parks encompass more than 400,000 acres of land, containing some of the most significant natural landscapes and historic sites in the state.
Whether it’s searching for lost hikers on the Appalachian Trail or High Angle Rescue from perilous perches in the Kittatinny Mountains, the experience is like no other. Let New Jersey’s great outdoors be your office.
