Bass River in New Jersey

Choose Your Bass River Adventure


Lake Absegami is a 67 acre lake located in Bass River State Forest, close to the New Jersey shore. Lake Absegami features a recreation area with a sandy beach for swimming, a snack concession, grills, picnic tables, playgrounds and other amenities. Also inside the park are hiking trails, cabins and campgrounds. We launch from the far end of the beach so you can explore the areas that are not open to swimming. It’s not unusual to see small fish or a turtle sunning themselves on a fallen tree. Come camp out in the park and spend some time on the water!
