COVID-19 has taught me to appreciate all our county parks either small or large and to enjoy the beauty you can find within them. This past weekend Lewis Morris Park partially reopened with restrictions, so when you go out practice safe distancing and wear a mask as we did when walking the trails and enjoy what nature has to offer.

We been coming to this park for years and have never seen a bear. We hike the trails that sometimes are not clearly marked. Get a map. There is a nice lake to swim in for a fee same as the paddle boats. Fishing is free just not from the sandy beach. Bring your own food. They need a concession stand with hot dogs.

Hilly hiking, a nice swimming lake, many picnic areas, some mountain cycling in a near to Morristown package. But it's part of the County Park System that boasts all very good to excellent sites and suffers some from the lack of vistas.

They promote on their web site paddle boats...however, they fail to mention, kids need to be 14 years old to use the paddle boat (unless with someone aged 18.) We paid the $28 in cash, and no one ever told us about the age 14 requirement at this time. When the kids proceeded to the dock to get a boat, they were told, "sorry, you're too young." Then the park refused to issue a refund!!! I even called the Director of Parks and Guest Services office to let her know, and they just gave me the run-around until I gave-up. Also, they make the kids take swimming test. My group of 4 all passed, yet were required to wear lifejackets...so what's the point of a swim test, if the kids are required to wear life jackets... They were understaffed, and staff were not friendly. More importantly, the water was a lovey brown color and filled with leaves (in August!!) Finally, everything, and I do mean, everything...is ADDITIONAL $$$$... This place is horrible. They trick people to come and try the boats, and then don't offer a refund...(so where's my cash?? we paid for a service that was not provided!) Would recommend skipping this place. There are better options...(Try Essex County Park and Turtle Back Zoo and paddle boats...)

Beautiful place, did not see any bears. Went twice, was told there were no snakes there, but saw one at Lewis Morris park and one at the National Historic Park. One was a copperhead and the other a timber snake. I like snakes, but you have to watch your step and bring a hiking stick. There are lots of turtles at sunrise lake beach club
