The land for Stephens State Park was given to the State of New Jersey for park purposes in 1937 by Marsena P. and Augustus W. Stephens. This rugged, picturesque area includes nearly a mile of the Musconetcong River. One can trace the roots of the park's history by viewing the old Victorian Homestead and the lime kiln in Stephens State Park. The Saxton Falls portion of the park, less than a mile upstream, was acquired when the Morris Canal was abandoned in 1922. It includes the dam and the canal guard lock through which canal boats once passed.

Attraction Details

Stephens State Park is just one of many New Jersey State Parks in northern New Jersey. Jenny Jump State Forest, Worthing State Forest, Swartswood State Park and Hopatcong State Park are all under an hour drive from the park.

Waterloo Village, located in Allamuchy Mt. State Park, is approximately 5 miles away. Call Kittatinny Valley State Park office (973) 347-1835 or go to www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/url to get a schedule of Canal Heritage Days.

There is a Rock Climbing Area located about 5 miles away in Allamuchy Mt. State Park. A waiver for individual climbing, available at the Stephens State Park office or online at www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/url MUST be signed first. There are many other nearby attractions in Warren, Sussex and Morris Counties. The nearby Delaware River and Delaware Water gap National Recreation Area also offer many recreational activities for visiting families to enjoy.

Stephens State Park offers many recreational activities for both day and overnight visitors.

Picnic tables and charcoal grills are available, many of which are located right along the river. Designated multi-use trails are available for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The Jersey Off-Road Bicycle association (JORBA) provides trail maintenance. Stephens State Park is a favorite choice for mountain biking in the area. All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are not permitted in the park.

Stephens State Park offers 40 tent campsites, some of which can accommodate RVs/trailers, but they must be self-contained as there are no water, sewer or electric hookups available at the park. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. There is also a playground and a playing field in the camping area.

Stephens State Park offers excellent fishing opportunities for the freshwater angler. During the spring and fall, the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife stocks the Musconetcong River with brown, rainbow and brook trout. A New Jersey fishing license is required for individuals between the ages of 16 and 70.

Canoeing and kayaking are enjoyable activities, especially when river conditions are favorable.

More than 470 acres of Stephens State Park are open to hunting. Hunting is subject to NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife regulations.
