Fishing at Hacklebarney State Park is permitted with a license. The license can be obtained at any sporting goods store in the state of NJ. Check in with the Hacklebarney State Park Ranger's office for tips on the best spots for fishing. I have to say in all my years visiting the park, I have yet to see someone catch something.
Hiking in Hacklebarney State Park is the number one recreational purpose for the park. There are several trails, all of varying degrees of difficulty. Look to spend about 2-3 hours at least exploring the various trails. They're all worth taking!
Equipment: All you need is the proper attire for cold or warm weather depending on the season, and a good pair of shoes.
