Cheesequake State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Cheesequake is the most urban state park in the densest, most urbanized state in the country. A mere 36 miles from Manhattan, its wooded and marsh 1,292 acres play host to swimmers, anglers, hikers, bikers, picnickers, sports enthusiasts, small mammals, deer, and 186 species of birds. The Garden State Parkway, a congested coastal toll highway that can be scenic or aggravating (depending on traffic), runs right through it.

The PNC Bank Arts Center, a 17,500-seat amphitheater that features multimillion-dollar live concerts, is just 8 miles away. But its disadvantages are also advantages: Travelers who want to be near New York happily set up tents here. Concertgoers enjoy Cheesequake for its access to the arts center. And its proximity to the Garden State Parkway makes Cheesequake desirable for budgetconscious campers who want to be near Jersey’s northern beaches."
