You bet your bass its time to plan another trip into the forest. How about a pygmy forest made of miniature trees? Bass River State Forest is home to one of the largest pygmy forests of its type in the world. The West Pine Plains Natural Area pygmy forest reaches a canopy height of no taller than four feet. Now if only miniature ponies also roamed the area!

Easy hiking trails are a great way to explore the area which also has a historic Civilian Conservation Corps camp where they created 67-acre Lake Absegami for swimming and boating as well as many trails, observation areas, bridges, cabins and other outdoorsy goodness for visitors to enjoy. Tent camping, lean-tos, shelters and cabins round out your options for spending a few nights in the outdoors. So pack the picnic, grab the family and head on down to Bass River State Forest!
