Mantoloking Bridge County Park
This is the place to go for spectacular views of the Barnegat Bay and some of New Jersey's finest fishing or crabbing expeditions.
This park is a haven for both crabbers and sightseers. The Park features a new 70-foot long pier, a boardwalk, a picnic area with a sunshade gazebo, and lit walkways.
The park is accessible 365 days a year for residents, and it's not just worth seeing during the summer season. The tiny Park is on less than two acres and includes numerous leisure activities linked to Barnegat Bay.
