Wawayanda State Park
The quiet charm of Wawayanda appeals to hikers, campers, swimmers and boaters. Forested hills surround Lake Wawayanda creating a restful backdrop for canoeists, boaters and fisherman, while steep mountains challenge casual as well as serious hikers. A twenty-mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail runs through the park, while the top of Wawayanda Mountain offers sensational views. More than sixty miles of trails are marked in the park.
Terrace pond.... if you plan on taking the 2 mile hike to the cliff jump. DO NOT wear sandals ... so do ur research before going.. know that u will be climbing up crazy hard rocks then back down them a lot of times ...be prepared to get 100% dirty... however the views are incredible and the dive is awesome
Great beach for families, and just outstanding hiking trails in every season (although we tend to avoid the swampier ones in the summer). We usually use the "back" entrance, where parking and admission are free on weekdays. Trails are very well marked, and range from simple walks to pretty strenuous hikes. Boating rentals are very nice as well. Lots of BBQ pits available, as are overnight camp sites.
One of the best places for fall seaaon... It's a hill so it was too cold... but the view was fabulous and the route to the park is unimaginable a woooow

Great place in the summer. The beach gets crowded on weekends. Rent a boat and BBQ.
This is a great place for a good hike. There are multiple trails there with varying levels of difficulty and length. We wanted a relatively easy trail since we had a 10 year old and this was a perfect place to experience the Appalachian trail for a relatively easy 1.5 to 2 mile stretch followed by more paved trails leading to a small lake/picnic area. The entire round trip was about 5 miles which was ideal for us.
