Perhaps the most attractive aspect of the park is its natural beauty. Besides cranberries, the bogs are home to wildflowers, birds, and a host of other flora and fauna. This provides an opportunity for photographers and nature enthusiasts in any season. The 1.4 mile self-guided nature trail meanders through the farm into undisturbed woodlands that offer an escape from everyday life.

The Visitors Center opened in May of 2015, and contains exhibits that highlight the natural beauty and historical significance of the park. The Visitors Center will be open weekly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; and by chance during the rest of the week. To schedule a group education program, please call the Visitors Center at 609-607-1861.
