Swimming at Spruce Run

There will be no swimming at Spruce Run for the 2020 Summer Season.

*Each year the park makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice. 

Surrounded by the rolling hills of Hunterdon County, Spruce Run Recreation Area is popular with picnickers, swimmers, fishermen, boaters and campers. The reservoir was one of the first water supply facilities to be constructed and operated by the state and covers 1,290 acres with 15 miles of shoreline for recreation. Spruce Run is the third largest reservoir in the state after Round Valley and Wanaque reservoirs. April 1 through October 31 we offer campers 67 tent and trailer sites and three shelters with fire rings and picnic tables. Modern restrooms, showers and a trailer sanitary dump station are within walking distance. Hunting is permitted in designated areas within the park and is subject to Division of Fish and Wildlife regulations. Please contact park office for more details.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the park offers a swimming beach staffed with lifeguards. Restrooms and shower facilities are available to the public at this time. *Each year the park makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice.

For larger groups, we also offer a Group Picnic Area, by reservation only.
