High Point State Park is home to New Jersey’s highest peak at 1,803 feet. Climb more than 200 stairs to the top of the High Point Monument for expansive panoramas of the rolling hills, pastoral farmland and valleys of 3 states, the Pocono Mountains toward the west, the Catskill Mountains to the north and the Wallkill River Valley in the southeast. The 220-foot High Point monument is an obelisk built in 1928-1930 in honor of war veterans. There are other hikes to explore the beautiful landscaping designed by the Olmsted Brothers, including one that explores the Dryden Kuser Natural Area and Cedar Swamp. Stop in the Visitor Center for more information. Take advantage of the many interpretive and educational programs, swim in Lake Marcia, enjoy fishing and boating or tent camping and cabin rentals. Winter features ice skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. There is a day-use fee from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.
