Stopped by Double Trouble Park to see what's there. Not much! Walked down the paths to see old cranberry Boggs and to the old buildings used for processing .

We had a great day of hiking and walking around this park. The Double trouble village is pretty cool and gave us some photo ops. We took a picnic lunch and spent the whole day. Stroll by the cranberry bogs and packing house....and along the river.

I live near double trouble state Park and visit frequently. I run the trails and also walk my dogs. There is canoeing available also. I take my dogs swimming in Cedar Creek which is very refreshing on a summer day.. Located within the pine Barrens of ocean County New Jersey

A pretty straightforward state park. Some historic buildings by the parking area and trails out beyond them. Cedar Creek runs all through the park and looks like it's got a good current for tubing, kayaking, or canoeing. The woods on either side of the creeks and streams get pretty thick, so you would be able to see quite a lot... More

Been here a few times as we live fairly close. The latest trip here was just my wife and I for a morning walk. The weather was nice, but a little chilly. We walked around the cranberry bogs and along the paths. There is so much nature here. There are also a few old buildings that make you step back... More

Went here yesterday and it was a gorgeous day! We were there to hike but couldn't follow any trails on the map provided on the states website, because the trails weren't marked and the trail info at the park didn't match. So, we just walked down what looked like trails. LOTS of dogs- more of a dog park but it... More
