Cheesequake State Parks uniqueness lies in its geographical location. Not only is it situated in the middle of the urban north and the suburban south, it lies in a transitional zone between two different ecosystems. Open fields, saltwater and freshwater marshes, a white cedar swamp, Pine Barrens, and a northeastern hardwood forest are the main characteristics of the park. Park Entrance fee: On Weekdays: NJ Resident Non-Resident $ 5.00 $10.00 On Weekends/Holidays: NJ Resident Non-Resident $10.00 $20.00

I'll start with $20 parking fee for non NJ residents.
Park it self is very clean and well taken care of(I see where $20 goes to) Green trail was 3 miles long , it is well marked and easy to walk on. Trail should be marked as easy

gorgeous hike but it does goes through the "wetlands" which is just a nicer way of saying it can get a little swampy

Very very clean park, nice trails went through several environments from saltwater marshes, bogs, pine forests, freshwater swamps, and oak forests. The green trail allows you to see coastal habitats and inland old forests.

Some areas could use improvement as I had to walk through several muddy areas, and a boardwalk would have benefitted these areas. But it's not the outdoors if you don't get dirty right?

Bring bug spray to prevent the gnats which we're plentiful in the salt marshes.

every step I was walking into spider webs, and was being attacked by bugs. it got so bad to the point where we left early. only thing cool about the place was the wildlife and a cabin that tells you about all the kinds of wildlife that has lived there over the years!
