Atsion Lake

Atsion Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the larger lakes within the 110,000-acre Wharton State Forest, Atsion Lake (pronounced AT-zon by locals) is the only one that provides on-site camping facilities, many of which are lakeside. White water lilies carpet the shallower western end, where the headwaters of the Mullica River, the largest waterway in the Pine Barrens, feed into the lake.

Thick pine and oak woods surround the lake, with a few stands of Phragmites along shallower shores. Red maple, hickory, and birch trees poke their branches between dark green pine and cedar at the water’s edge, creating a colorful contrast in fall. Most of the lake is fairly deep by coastal plain standards, with some spots reaching depths of 15 feet or more."
