Cheesequake State Park

Cheesequake State Park
Matawan, NJ

In 1,274 acres, the park contains a wide variety of habitats including open fields, salt and fresh water marshes, white cedar swamp, pine barrens and hardwood forests. Marked trails take you through all these different environments.

You can also swim and fish, in the Summer, in Hooks Creek Lake, or ice-skate in the Winter. There are 53 family campsites with access to hot showers and flush toilets. There are two sets of group sites in the park, Gordon Field (3 sites) and Booth (5 sites). Each site has the capacity to hold 50 people. The Gordon Field sites have a bathroom (flush toilets, no showers) so it costs $1 per night per person. The Booth sites only have outhouses so they cost $.75 per night per person.

Driving directions: Take the Garden State Parkway to exit 120. Three right turns (following signs) will bring you to the park entrance.
