Trail & Path Info

The park itself offers many miles of great hiking trails. Most are well marked. As always, we recommend getting a map before heading out.

Things to See & Do

One of the most interesting parts to the park would be the observatory| ran by the New Jersey Astronomical Association. It can be found near the RelCntlinkID!!5220||campground, and usually has some type of sky watching every Sat evening. But please, check with the NJAA site before just heading to the park expecting to see the stars :)

Trip Ideas

A very simple, but nice day, would be to go explore Voorhees State Park during the day, hiking biking and more, and then visiting the observatory| during the evening. Better yet, why not explore Voorhees during the day, the observatory at evening, and stay in RelCntlinkID!!5220||Voorhees State Park Campground that night!
