Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 28 Picnic & swimming by NJG
Went there with a group on Aug 28...the grounds are great for a day out. However the bathrooms were spotless at 8:30, but by 10am they were a disgusting mess that just got worse. If a Parkway reststop can be kept clean all day, so can 4 bathrooms.
Half the adjacent beach area was closed but had 2 lifeguards in one chair...maybe one could have moved 75 feet and sat by himself and avoinded terrible overcrouding? Beaches were also closed for 45 min 3 times so both life guards could take their break together instead of staggering them.
As a park the people that were there that day made a mess, there was no Ranger control and do not listen to instructions. One person was told not to fish 5 times over the loud speaker, but just kept walking back and fishing and there were no rangers in sight all day.
This facility is to be closed M-F Aug 29- Sept 3 and then open for the final Holiday weekend. I think new management is warranted, as this is a beautiful area.
I would love to come back, but not on the weekend.
September 23 truly beautiful by j karl

August 27 Excessive Park Police
Beware of the NJ State Park Police. Make sure your dogs are leashed. You will be issued a summons!
July 4 Good Park But....
Once the park is full you cannot get in. I am a local resident who invested in a park pass and was still not allowed in once the park was full. I really do feel that local residents within a 5 mile radius should have preferential treatment in order to enjoy the privileges of the park. Taxes here (Hunterdon County) are extremely high with few services provided by the state. The least they could do is allow local residents access to the park (especially if they have a park pass).

May 21 A family place to relax by MILLIE
Our family like to go there because you can swim at the lake and you can have a barbecue picnic as well. You can fish and go to the mountain as well. It is very clean and safe for the children.
August 14 ROUND VALLEY STATE PARK by CYNTHIA MCDONOUGH
PLEASE DO NOT CLOSE DOWN THE PARK. IT IS MAGNIFICENT. I ALWAYS BROUGHT MY CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN THERE. IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO SPEND TIME, NOT TO MENTION PICNICING.
July 24 A good place to swim by Joe in Colonia
I would like to find out if this park is still opened. My sister is celebrating her little boys birthday with a couple of relatives (not too many) and we would like to know if its still opened. Thanks
July 7 I love this park
I live in north jersey and the nearest park to me is branch brook. I hate it there. It is destroyed by people and its just land now. Round valley is a great spot to check out if you want to fish,herp,camp,swim..almost anything..

August 13 Childhood Favorite by Ivan
My family would go camping for a week or two during my childhood here. For ten years it was the best part of my summer. I now have a son of my own and was hoping to give hime the same experience and values that I grew up with. This is awful.

I go to the park every summer with my kids and the love it! We have been going there for over 10 years now, this is just horrible to do to the people that have made so many memories and fun times there.
