Batsto State Park
31 Batsto Road, Hammonton, NJ 08037
Batsto Village is a former bog iron and glassmaking industrial center dating back to the mid-1700s that reflects both agricultural and commercial enterprises that existed there during the late nineteenth century. The Pine Barren village consists of 33 historic buildings and structures, including the Batsto Mansion, a gristmill, sawmill, general store and post office. Nestled in Wharton State Forest, which is the largest single tract of land within the New Jersey State Park System, the historic site is surrounded by rivers, streams and numerous lakes and ponds for canoeing. The park’s abundance of fields are great for wildlife observation and hiking trails, and its miles of unpaved roads for mountain biking and horseback riding.
