Passive recreation at a safe social distance is permitted in New Jersey state parks and forests. Check the state park webpage for information about parking capacity, restrooms, and other important information. Sign up for notifications about park closures on this page. Face masks are encouraged. Please be safe and respectful so we can keep the parks open.
If you see illegal activity (ORV abuse, illegal dumping) call 1-877-WARN-DEP and press option 2. The parks and forests are under more pressure now than ever and we need to help protect them.
