Those cold snowy days are just a memory - Memorial Day weekend is here! Kick off your troubles, pack your beach bag, grab your friends and family, and head up to High Point State Park. There is no better place to relax and have fun this summer. Pitch a tent, take a hike, watch the wildlife, go for a swim, build a sandcastle, have a picnic, or just sit back and enjoy the view…the possibilities for adventure are limitless.
Make High Point State Park your destination of choice. Consider purchasing an Annual State Park Pass – your family and wallet will thank you. Stay close to home and explore New Jersey’s wonderful State Parks and Forests.
Find a little happiness - take the family camping. The term “Happy Camper” was coined for a reason…try saying S’mores without smiling – you can’t can you? Don’t know what a S’more is? You really need to get camping. What better way to start your family camping tradition than to reserve a campsite at High Point State Park’s Sawmill Lake campground.
Why not make your camping adventure extra fun by joining National Wildlife’s Great American Backyard Campout on June 25th. You can create a team, register your campsite, get fun tips, activities and recipes, and share your camping story. Whether you decide to camp at High Point State Park or in your own backyard, pitch a tent and have fun.
Join the Friends of High Point State Park Saturday, June 11, 3 pm – 7 pm for Explorations at High Point State Park. Bring the family for an afternoon of adventure and stay for an evening of creative fun. Pack a picnic supper, grab the digital camera, and explore High Point. Make memories, take some photos, draw a picture, and tell the story of your adventure. Take home a keepsake journal of your day of exploration.
The Friends of High Point State Park is sponsoring a summer concert series on the beach - spread out a blanket and enjoy evenings of music in the park.
