Double Trouble State Park

581 Pinewald Keswick Road
Bayville, NJ 08721


Double Trouble State Park offers an outstanding example of the Pine Barrens ecosystem and a window into the Pine Barrens history. The park provides the protection and interpretation of over 8000 acres of significant natural, cultural, and recreational resources representative of the Pinelands National Reserve. 

Its location and resource base afford an opportunity to introduce visitors to southern New Jersey's natural and cultural heritage. Both the natural environment, consisting of a high quality Pine Barrens watershed, and an extremely well preserved historic village associated with New Jersey cranberry agriculture and Atlantic White Cedar logging and milling industries are available to visitors at Double Trouble State Park.

The Double Trouble Historic District has a self-guided, marked 1.5-mile loop nature trail and several miles of unmarked paths along sand service roads. Nature trail guides are available at the trailhead next to the cranberry packing house and at the park information building.

Double Trouble Village is an active cranberry farm. Visitors are asked to use caution around the bogs and reservoirs.  Vehicles are not permitted beyond the parking area except for canoe access at the White Bridge.  Horseback riding & mountain biking are permitted on existing sand roads only; mountain bikers and geocachers are asked to refrain from creating rogue trails.  No ATVs or motorized vehicles.  Pets must be on a leash (6 feet or less in length) at all times and owners must clean up after their pets.
