The Ocean County Parks and Recreation has two parks which offer swimming facilities. 

Ocean County Park in Lakewood. Beautiful, freshwater lake and sandy beach.

A. Paul King County Park in Stafford Township (Manahawkin). This picturesque location has both a freshwater lake as well as a beach.

All beaches are staffed with lifeguards from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily from mid-June until Labor Day (conditions permitting).  The best part of all is that there is never a charge to use County facilities!  All locations also have playgrounds, restrooms and picnic facilities.

Smoking is prohibited on our beaches.
