July 4th weekend is a time for backyard barbecues, watching local fireworks, and waving American flags. But for those who are looking for a little more physical outdoor fun, there are 50 New Jersey State Parks to explore.

State parks feature activities ranging from swimming at the beach, boating, fishing, hiking, golfing, biking and more. Most New Jersey parks are open from 8:00 to dusk but check the website for specific information.
