Autumn is a spectacular season at High PointState Park!
Sun dapples dance across the blue waters of lakes Marcia, Steenykill, and
Sawmill, as ridge breezes and rising thermals carry migrating birds and
butterflies on their journeys south.
Trails tempt hikers into leaf littered
woods and up mountaintops for breathtaking views of ridges and valleys, gathered
and stitched into a harvest colored quilt.
Campsites host cozy campfires on cool,
quiet, star-filled nights. Visitors from around the world stop to enjoy our
little corner of New Jersey.

We had a wonderful day of fishing and boating on Lake Marcia. Unfortunately, our campfire was rained out. Photos from the day are now available for viewing from our photos page. Be sure to join us Saturday, Oct 27, for our annual Open Hearth Cooking event, where visitors are welcomed to observe the Friends prepare a feast on the fireplace in the Interpretive Center and sample the many dishes hot off the hearth.
