    This place blew me away. I’d never been to the pine Barrens before and didn’t realize how truly “barren” it really is, since I don’t usually think of a forest as barren. It was wall to wall pine trees and nothing else, deadly silent. I didn’t even hear birds or squirrels most of the time we were there. Definitely a different experience. Additional points go to all the tea stained, black water for a little extra otherwordliness and creepiness. I also liked that there were so many driving trails so that you could get out in the middle of it so easily.

    Huge amount of area. Lots of dirt trails to explore with a Jeep or by foot. Would love to try biking through it. Good fishing spots. Bring a map, or a good GPS, because you can get lost really easy if you’re not paying attention, and cell phone reception is problematic.

    The Woods and Batsto Village are great for walking, hiking, biking, or dirt road “exploration” by SUV. Camping is good in some campgrounds depending on your neighbors and crowding. We’ve canoed the rivers (Upper Mullica, Wading, and Bass) several times and on weekends in the summers can be crowded but on weekdays the river or creek is “yours” to enjoy. I’ve also launched my 22.5 foot Grady-White at the state ramp at Crowley’s Landing off Rt.542 but that was a very tight fit (depth, width of river at that point and cross current). Beautiful cruise down and into Great Bay and the ocean. If you’re expecting major vistas and a tourist thrill park experience move on… if you love nature, woods and water this is a great place. Just be aware that deer ticks and Lyme’s are endemic and you need to be prepared (repellent/check self and clothes for ticks if you traveled through in the grasses or underbrush in the woods).
