The Rancocas Creek provides an idyllic setting to observe nature up close in this rustic park. Hikers, bicyclists and joggers are welcome, however, there are no staffed facilities on site. The New Jersey Audubon Society operates a Nature Center on the Park (entrance off Rancocas Road) and sponsors varied wildlife programs. The Powhatan Indians manages a museum and a replica of a Native American village, both designed to educate visitors on their culture. The Powhatans hold festivals in the spring and fall months that offer music, performances and crafts".

The nature trail was generally well marked. The overwhelming swarms of biting flies and mosquitos made for an unenjoyable morning. Not sure if that is typical for the area.

Saw 4 deer!

nice 3.2 mile loop. You can start at the parking lot or at the entrance to the park (trail head is on your right after the state park sign, this entrance also follows the mile markers so you can follow the distance). nice and scenic with a good portion stretching along a river. Cool, creepy abandoned house towards the end. great place for pictures and to get away if you don't have very much time
