This park has a range of lake activities to choose from. Sites are well maintained, with hot showers and clean bathrooms.
Featuring the 67-acre Lake Absegami, Bass River State Forest is a great place to spend a weekend on the water – swimming, canoeing, boating, and fishing are all possible here. There are also hiking trails through the surrounding woods.
The park has 176 tent and trailer sites, which include fire rings and picnic tables, open year-round. Nearby there is access to flush toilets, showers, and laundry. The fee is $20/night.
Alternatively, there are six group campsites ($25), nine lean-tos ($30), and six lakeside shelters ($40). For further accommodations, you can also book one of six cabins ($65) along the lakefront.
The beach has lifeguards and facilities, no pets allowed.
