Lake Horicon – A great place to swim in Ocean County, New Jersey


About Lake Horicon

Lake Horicon has been a family favorite for over ten years. No summer is complete without a few trips to this nice quiet lake. Nestled in the corner of Lakehurst, New Jersey, this 63 acre lake is a great place to come for an afternoon swim, to build sandcastles, to go for a jog on a nature trail and even to spend the afternoon having a picnic.

    I reside in Jackson and having been bringing my greatgrandkids here for 2 years and have found it to be very family friendly. Kids enjoy the water as well as the park.
