Hampton Pines Preserve, Ocean County NJ

Hampton Pines Preserve, Ocean County NJ
Lakewood Township, Ocean County
109 Acres

In 2002, Lakewood Township donated 109 acres of Township-owned land along the Kettle Creek to the Trust.  This donation is now the Trust's Hampton Pines Preserve, named in tribute to the Trust's former Executive Director, Thomas F. Hampton.  Tom was a long-time resident and civic leader in Lakewood.  Hampton Pines Preserve typifies the Pine Barrens landscapes that Tom appreciated.  The pitch pine and oak forests here will continue to provide habitat for wildlife such as red-tailed hawk, pine warbler and pine snakes.

Public Access and Uses:
Though onsite parking is not available, the property does have extensive road frontage along Shorrock Avenue.  The Trust intends to construct a short nature trail for visitors.  Hunting is not permitted at the preserve.
