New Jersey State Parks: History & Facts

Some of New Jersey's most exciting history can be found in our more
than two dozen State Parks. Names such as Wawayanda and
Hopatcong remind us of the Lenni Lenape, or "Original People."
Historic battlefields recall New Jersey's perilous years as "The
Crossroads of the American Revolution." Abandoned forges still speak
of our first great industry, and we can trace the beginnings of our
transportation network in the paths of the Morris and the Delaware &
Raritan Canals.

From the top of New Jersey's tallest mountain to our last undeveloped
beaches, discover the stories of our parks: who called them home in the
past, what happened in and around them, and how they have been
preserved for generations of visitors.

Illustrated throughout with original black & white photographs.
