While the main trail is a circle around the Parvin Lake, there are many little trails where one can get lost and enjoy some peace and quiet. It is a beautiful park. I was there just after parks were reopening so there were no bathrooms and the campgrounds were closed. That said, it was beautiful and we enjoyed the extra serenity on the backroads that are around the lake. You can learn some history, too, as the park is part of WWII history, for good or for bad. It was built by the Civilian Conservations Corps, but also served as a P.O.W. camp. You can learn about the history on the main trains that circle the lake. Make sure to stop at the amish markets on the way out for some nice treats. Spend as little or as long as you like.

We kayaked, hiked, rode bikes, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cabins are big and have electricity, a small kitchen area with full-size refrigerator with freezer, stove, oven, sink and full bath. Bring your own cooking and sleeping items. Shower pressure and hot water was excellent. Bunk beds were fun. Recommend bringing egg crate pad or other sleeping mat to help with comfort. The best part about the cabins is the entire front door slides opens to a screened-in porch. Lots of airflow. Highly recommend.

Parvins State Park has been in my life since a child. Many happy memories of hiking, swimming, and bbq. The trails are usually in pretty good shape. Lots of wildlife if you keep your eyes open. Fishing canoeing kayaking biking it’s all there! But please remember if you visit,,, there are no trash receptacles,,, so no leaving garbage or doggie dropping bags for others to dispose of!!

I’ve lived near the park for more than forty years. It’s a beautiful place to visit. I’ve hiked the trails, kayaked the lake, taken my children and grandchildren for picnics there and love to go birding in the park. Rustic cabins and lots of campsites. I’ve seen Bald Eagles, Scarlet Tanagers and more birds than I can count. Haunted Hayrides in the Fall too! It’s a South Jersey must.
