Camp Crockett County Park
Camp Crockett’s forest, lake and trails provide easy access to wildlife viewing in a family-friendly environment, especially if you enjoy paddling a canoe or kayak. After exploring, enjoy a snack in the sheltered picnic area. There is also a playground, which comes in handy when budding young naturalists lose their patience with elusive species. Don't miss the path at the edge of the lawn that leads into the woods. You will soon reach a stream where you may make interesting discoveries any time of year. In warmer weather, look for whirligig beetles and water striders, as well as the local frogs and salamanders.
Camp Crockett is open daily from 8 am to dusk from April 16th to October 31st. From November 1st through April 15th, no one is on site at the park, and visitors must call ahead to the Salem County Buildings and Grounds Office to have the access gate unlocked. It is recommended that visitors call at least an hour in advance of their arrival. If planning a weekend visit, visitors must call the Friday before to have the gate opened for the weekend. On site parking available.
