High Point State Park Reviews
A lovely experience. The high point of the state is a fun place to visit. We had a clear day with a great view. more »
Great park just missed the cut off time to climb to the top. Great view especially in the fall when leaves are changing. Parking playground hiking pond and bbq all great spot more »
I have only been to the monument area which is a great place to visit. Since it is the highest point in NJ, you have spectacular views all around the monument. Climbing to the top of the monument when open allows a higher view of the area and some exercise. The park does have swimming, camping and hiking available, but those things I can't comment about. This is worth a visit, especially in the fall.
We only went to the lake. Nice place for a picnic and a day at the beach. Kids had a lot of fun in the sand. BBQ grills and picnic tables, as well as a playground, are available. The bathrooms could be cleaner. And I wish the roped-off portion of the lake where you could swim was bigger. But overall a really nice lake surrounded by beautiful forest.
