HIGH POINT STATE PARK, NJ
DescriptionThe original High Point State Park land was donated by Colonel Anthony R. and Susie Dryden Kuser, and was dedicated as a park in 1923. High Point State Park is home of the High Point Monument standing at 1803 feet above sea level and was built through the generosity of the Kusers, in honor of all New Jersey wartime heroes. Today with more than 16,000 acres High Point offers superb trails for hikers, quiet spots for campers and anglers, and many year-around activities for the day visitor.
Located in the extreme northwest corner of New Jersey, the park is situated along the crest of the Kittatinny Mountains in Sussex County. The view from High Point Monument, at 1,803 feet above sea level, is a spectacular panorama of rich farmland and forest, soft hills and lush valleys in three states: New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The blue line of the Delaware River divides the verdant ridges of New Jersey from those of Pennsylvania.
High Point State Park offers many recreational activities for both the day and overnight visitor.
Lake Marcia offers a seasonal bathhouse open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend from the hours of 10:00am to 6:00pm. Hot showers, dressing rooms and restrooms are available. An adjacent seasonally operated concession stand is also available.
High Point State Park is just one of many New Jersey State Parks in Sussex County. Swartswood State Park, Stokes State Forest, Jenny Jump State Forest, Worthington State Forest and Waywayanda State Park are all within an hour drive.
