    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Lake Absegami lies in the northwest corner of the Bass River State Forest at the southern end of Burlington County. The 67-acre body of water offers cedar swamps, bogs, and pine and mixed-oak forests surrounding the tea-colored waters typical of the Pine Barrens. Large coves will provide hours of exploring as you discover something new around each bend.

    Warblers, blue jays, cardinals, kingbirds, eastern pee-wees, and other songbirds add to the nature experience. While you’re there, take advantage of camping in a tent, a lean-to, or a trailer within the pine-scented woodlands. The park also rents rustic cabins, a few of which are lakeside. Schedule your trip around a full moon cycle to enjoy a pleasant moonlight paddle before retiring. Playgrounds are located at the swimming beach and within the camping area."
