Bass River State Forest: North Shore Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"New Jersey’s first state forest has come a long way since it was acquired in 1905. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) altered the landscape significantly in the 1930s, when they planted 4,500 acres of trees. When they dammed two streams and constructed the park’s centerpiece, Lake Absegami, a public park was born.

More than 110 years later, the lake is surrounded by 176 campsites, 6 cabins, 6 lean-tos, 9 primitive shelters, and 6 group sites. Eighty-three campsites line the thin loop that comprises the South Shore Campground. A separate loop sits on the farther bank, housing 93 additional sites at the North Shore Campground."
