  • A beautiful reservation park in close proximity to Chatham. I took a walk across Chatham and entered the Great Swamp. There are well marked trails and I took one of the of about 1.5 miles. The reservation is beautiful, alive with wild plantation and very easy to walk through upon a convenient board walk. Reservation center is there to offer help and additional materials. Highly recommended.
  • The only National Wildlife Refuge in the Great Swamp. Lovely park with raised walkways and bird blinds. Great bird watching and you can usually find a few turtles and frogs.
