Kittatinny Valley State Park is a state park in New Jersey. The four glacial lakes, namely Lake Aeroflex, Gardner's Pond, Twin Lakes and White's Pond provide fishing, boating, and kayaking opportunities. The Aeroflex-Andover Airport is located in the park and is a general aviation airport that is also used by the NJ Forest Fire Service. There are two rail trails in the park that are designated multi-use. The 20 mile Sussex Branch Trail and the 27 mile Paulinskill Valley Trail that goes past the airport.
Hiking trails in the park vary from single track trails and gravel roads that are suitable for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and horseback riding. A 2-mile self-guided nature trail provides a brief introduction to the park’s natural and cultural resources. Hardcore mountain bikers will enjoy over 8 miles of rugged, maintained mountain bike trails. Mountain bike races are held in the park each year. The terrain is varied enough to be challenging to both novice and expert riders.
Motorized vehicles are not permitted on any park trails. Hunting is permitted in the park. Wildlife that can be found in the park includes whitetail deer, wild turkey, a variety of songbirds, beaver, muskrats, and squirrels. Fishermen can hook brown trout, rainbow trout, large-mouth bass, bluegills, landlocked salmon, and assorted pan-fish.
While fishing and boating is permitted, swimming is not. Please note: visitors will no longer be permitted to cross the airport runway along the southern shore of Lake Aeroflex.
