Wawayanda State Park in New Jersey Northwest Skylands

NJ Skylands: Wawayanda State Park in New Jersey Northwest Skylands | by Mary Jasch

It’s a Jungle Out There

“The Jersey Jungle waits at Wawayanda State Park in Sussex County. As wild as its name, the land of ‘winding, winding water’ is home to Indian shelters and some of the best bear dens in NJ, a lake to swim and boat on, great gobs of pudding stone to climb, rock to scramble, ledges for leaping, primeval forest, 20 miles of Appalachian Trail and so much more. It’s a 16,679-acre garden-like jungle gym, a land of natural marvels and a dynamic showcase of human history. Its wildness survives us.”
