Description

Looking for a way to pay tribute to the veterans in your life? The High Point Monument in High Point State Park towers 1,803 feet above sea level, with panoramic views of the surrounding farms, forests, hills, and valleys. It pays tribute to New Jersey’s war heroes, and is one of the standout features of the park. You’ll also find a 20-acre lake for swimming and fishing, and the highest white cedar swamp in the world. Family campsites, group sites, and modern cabins are available for your overnight excursions, so grab your swimsuit and your marshmallows and head over to High Point State Park.

The campground at High Point State Park has 50 spacious tent sites, many with direct lake access, located in a wooded area surrounding Saw Mill Lake. Store food properly as there are bears in the area.

Swimming in the park, with a seasonal lifeguard, is a few miles away on Lake Marcia. A bathhouse with shower is also here (no shower or running water in the campground bathrooms). Show your campground receipt to avoid the entrance fee.

We also hiked Monument Trail (3.5 mile loop trail) from near Lake Marcia to High Point Monument and onward. The monument was erected in honor of war veterans and on weekends it is possible to ascend the staircase inside the 220-foot monument to ~1800 feet above sea level for mountain and valley views.
