About Us:

Amico Island Park is a 55-acre peninsula featuring a diverse collection of habitats and terrain. With upland forests, freshwater ponds and wetlands, river shoreline and meadows, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, fishing and picnicking in a rustic natural setting at the confluence of the Rancocas Creek and Delaware River.

The park also offers beautiful river vistas and wildlife observation opportunities. Overlook areas are sited to capture stunning viewsheds of the waterways and marinas surrounding the park. Over 150 species of birds, 14 species of reptiles and amphibians, 29 species of butterflies, and 7 species of mammals can be seen over the course of a year. While hiking the trails, visitors are likely to see white-tailed deer, cottontail rabbits, hawks and eagles soaring over, and great blue herons. The small island in Dredge Harbor visible from Amico’s South Overlooks is an active great blue heron rookery, hosting 100 nesting herons every March-June.
