Love this park. Clean. Well maintained with lots of trails nicely marked. Only downside was amount of ticks. Despite my dogs Sorreto anti tick collar I picked 4 off her and 3 off me. Will wait until the fall to follow the trails

Its a nice place to visit if your into nature. But if your going to take pictures just a heads up. If there are alot of people you won't see as much cause well there scarred. But if Your into long walks and just being out side great spot. Just heads up spray your self with tick repellent I have picked up a few ticks from this location.

Cattus Island is a beautiful park. By far my favorite in Toms River. Has a number of nature trails to walk or bike down.

Impressive nature center. Well maintained walking and bike paths going through estuaries out to bay. Some very nice elevated walkways over salt marsh terrain. Dogs allowed on leashes.
