Gorgeous blue lake to photograph, swim or picnic at. The lake and surrounding area is picturesque and serene.

Lake Horicon Park is located at the corner of Union Avenue and Lake Street in Lakehurst, New Jersey. For swimmers: the lake is cedar water, a lifeguard is on duty at first beach from June 19th through September 1st from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm daily. At the rear of the lake picnic tables and grills are available for use. For the best photography and view of the lake, there is a footbridge that leads you onto a small island on the lake. The clouds reflect in the water many times during the day which can be captured by a camera. Also, many delicious restaurants are located only a few minutes from the lake in Lakehurst.
