Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 2 A rare gem of a find ! by C.K. Urban, CSW, MSW
My friends & I live in the urban areas & I am really not a city girl. I found the park three years ago & we visit every Fourth of July & every Labor Day. This Fourth of July we even went with the threatening skies. It srarted to pour just as we finished eating. The staff is wonderful and pleasant.
May 27 Our park views threatened by Linda in Swartswood, NJ
I live within walking distance of Swartswood Park and have gone countless times over the years. I agree that it is an absolute gem of a place but now those breathtaking views from the park are being threatened by a proposed 152-foot Nextel cell tower yards from Little Swartswood Lake. Although it would be erected on private land, it will be visible from all areas of the park, especially Little Swartswood Lake. It would pose a great hazard to the migrating birds that pass through and to the pair of nesting eagles. To see a photo mock-up of what the proposed tower would look like, and for more information, please visit www.noswartswoodtower.com.

We camp here every year - bathrooms are clean, many of their sites are large and well maintained. Rangers are helpful and really nice.
Watch the bears and keep coolers in your vehicles at ALL TIMES!!!!
August 22 Great for family fun. by irishguy1565
I started going to Swartswood when I was a teenager with my friends, and 30 years later, my sons and I enjoy all the benefits of nature and wildlife Sartswood has to offer. Great campsites, beautiful beach and lake, clean ammenities, the works. Lets you get rid of the electronic gadgets and back to quality family time in an ideal setting and more simple times.

April 16 One of my favorite places to camp
Swartswood has been my favorite retreat. I have been visiting the park for over 15 yrs. The staff and police are always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. They are one of the many reasons I look forward to returning each year.
March 1 Loads of family fun! by Linda
This is one place you can still go to enjoy nature and spend quality family time together. I have been going to Swartswood since I was little and now take my family there.
June 26 Our favorite place to go! : ) by -Dana
This park is awesome from the beach, playgrounds, lifeguards, etc. My husband and I live in the area for 7 years and have been going for the past year bringing our 3 small children. Great place to be - not far from home (great gas saver too)! We like it so much we bought a park pass and travel between Swartswood and Stokes. Great family place! Thank you!
