Cloverdale Farm County Park
34 Cloverdale Road
Barnegat, NJ 08005
Cloverdale Farm County Park is the newst addition to the Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation. The property was purchased from Katherine Collins in 2004, who operated the cranberry bogs and tree farm on the property for over 50 years with her husband William. The property has been continuously run as a cranberry farm since the late 1800s.
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. Facilities:
Visitors Center, restrooms, self-guided nature trail, fishing, bird watching, photography, hiking and walking trails, cross country skiing, environmental education and picnic area. Cloverdale Farm Trail Map (PDF) Cloverdale Farm County Park Brochure.pdf
