Great place to bike. Wonderful for photography. If I had had the time, I could have walked all the way to the water, but I had less than an hour to spend there. What scenery I did see was gorgeous & photogenic. I intend to return when I have at least 2-3 hours to spend there.

There is plenty to do at Cattus Island County Park. It's nice to walk all around. There is a playground area that our Granddaughter loved as well as the hike we all did. You can take a short or long hike. There are also historical areas to explore to see how this park was established. You can have a picnic... More

So many memories from growing up and being able to share them with my children. Fun interactive displays that the children can learn and daily classes that focus on different animals in their displays. My son while three fondly named it the "owl House"

We took advantage of a dinner and cruise recently. Inexpensive pontoon ride to a local restaurant on the river. Great time and worth it just for the scenery.

Great place to escape from the ordinary. Very natural setting and absolutely beautiful. Only drawback is the bugs are aggressive and give a nasty bite. Wear protection

Cattus Island is a great place for hiking; Be sure to wear your bug spray because the bugs are out even in the daytime! Some of the trails are a bit overgrown with thin willowy leaves that brush against your body and will cause itching for days. (You can easily avoid these trails, there are so many others) However, it... More

I have always known about Cattus Island and have been there many times when my children were young. I just began visiting again, for exercise and my new hobby which is birding. The trails are well marked to see the wildlife and those birds that are shy. I am fulfilling tow goals. 1. Exercise and 2 , seeing birds ,... More

We have been coming here for 35 years. Even though Hurricane Sandy caused building and trail damage the park has weathered the storm and remains a wonderful place to relax, walk the trails, birdwatch (which was totally amazing yesterday) and simply hang out in the little coves. Especially if you are able to canoe/kayak around the perimeter on Barnegat or... More
