In accordance with Governor Phil Murphy’s order announced on April 7th, all county parks will close indefinitely beginning at 8 PM on April 7. At the same time, all state parks in New Jersey will close indefinitely as well, including Wharton State Forest which stretches into the southeastern part of the county. This full closure includes all park lots, grounds, facilities, trails, and playgrounds.
Although residents are allowed to exercise outside under the governor’s stay at home order, these closures are intended to further reduce instances of individuals gathering in groups and further the state’s social distancing efforts.
Atco Lake (77 acres) is located in Waterford Township on White Horse Pike. This location was acquired through Open Space Trust Fund in 2008.
