About Lake Horicon Park

The great Lake Horicon Park has been known to be a family favorite spot for over 10 years. There is no complete summer without a few trips to this beautiful peaceful lake.

This 63-acre lake is situated at the corner of Union Avenue & Lake Street, New Jersey. It is in the same area as many other interesting spots such as Crossley Preserve, Lakehurst Historical Museum, Navy Lakehurst Historical Society, Brooksbrae Terracotta Brick Factory, Manchester Family Golf Center, and the list continues!

It is a nice place to come for an afternoon swim, to construct sandcastles, to spend the afternoon having a picnic, and even to go for a jog on the nature trail.

What Lake Horicon Park Offers

It is a 63-acre stream-fed lake, with swimming, fishing, birding, hiking, canoeing. The cedar water is fed by two streams, Blacks Branch and Hurricane Branch, making it always refreshing. The park offers recreational opportunities for swimmers, joggers, or anyone who enjoys a peaceful, cool atmosphere. While there are no diving boards, canoes and kayaks are made available for rent.

The park offers playground equipment for children available in a shady location and is provided with benches for parents to relax. There is one lifeguard assigned daily on duty during the summer months until September. The lake admission is free of charge:
