  • NJ lakes in the Pinelands-www.njmonthly.com
    bogs cause water levels to fluctuate While wildlife abounds up and down all of these rivers the Oswego has a particular reputation for beaver red fox and wild turkey sightings Keep your eyes peeled The Rancocas Creek Floating Amid the Mallards Don t let the word creek fool you While it may not be a mighty rushing river of white water and leaping trout the Rancocas is no slouch Stretching for more than 30 miles the north branch of the Rancocas winds its way through forests of maple hickory and oak providing glimpses of painted and box turtles blue herons white tailed deer geese bobcats and squawking mallards Like the Mullica the Rancocas is a quintessential South Jersey paddling experience with canoeing options for various skill levels The most popular stretch of the Rancocas runs from Browns Mills which is just off Route 530 below the bridge down to Mill Dam Park in historic Mount Holly According to Robert Johnson owner of RJ Toad s Canoe Rental in Browns Mills the entire stretch can be covered in a very long day but beginners and those who yearn for a more relaxed pace would be wise to break it up into two shorter expeditions The first leg of Browns Mills to Pemberton takes about four hours the journey from Pemberton to Mount Holly can be done in three Not only is this a more sensible way to travel the creek it also matches the cool indolent vibe of the water and the surrounding fairy tale forests If you are only looking to spend a morning or afternoon on the Rancocas there are other ways to parse the excursion Consider a calm relaxing float from Burlington County College to Clark s Canoe Rental in Pemberton That s just three easy miles of intimate South Jersey paddling Or perhaps put in at historic Smith Park and enjoy a wider stretch of water as you make your way down to Mill Dam Park in Mount Holly The Rancocas has plenty of high sturdy shores for stops to picnic or explore but camping along the banks is only by permission Also worth noting says Johnson is that the Rancocas remains relatively deep even during the dry summer months In Paddling the Jersey Pine Barrens author Robert Parnes says the origin of the Rancocas name is unclear There is general agreement the creek was named after an Indian tribe but it is uncertain which one Both the Remkokes and the Ancocus Indians lived in the region Recommended Reading The Last Nest Saving Our Bald Eagle Population The Batsto River Gateway to the Past I think the Batsto River is my favorite says David Bel co owner of Bel Haven Paddlesports in Green Bank You get a little of everything with that river You have narrow streams that open up into wider passages and it tends to be a little quieter than some of the others In some of the rivers down here you ll see hundreds of canoes in the water during the weekends but not so much with the Batsto The Batsto originates in Tabernacle Township and runs through the Wharton State Forest all the way down to historic Batsto Village where a dam forms Batsto Lake before a small stream finally connects it to the Mullica It is a sojourn peppered with historical sites and gateways to South Jersey s rich past including Hampton Furnace Lower Forge and Quaker Bridge Ambitious paddlers can try the long stretch of the Batsto that runs from Hampton Furnace on Hampton Furnace Road off Route 206 South down to Batsto Lake According to Bel the trip can be made in eight or nine hours but the endurance and skill required make it less appealing to novices Instead he says try the shorter trip which starts at Quaker Bridge a tucked away gem of a spot off Route 206 South in Vincentown and ends at Batsto Lake Those who would go for the longer option might want to consider breaking up the trip into two days stopping to camp at Lower Forge for the night and then continuing down to Batsto Lake the following day Be aware that Lower Forge Camp is about as primitive a camping experience as you will find in South Jersey with no drinking water you must carry your own and no roads into town Without any cars or lights says Bel you really get that wilderness experience If you are camping get permits for Lower Forge call 609 561 0024 or visit state nj us dep parksandforests parks wharton html and allow extra time to explore the Hampton Furnace ruins and Batsto Village Click here for more information about camping in the Pine Barrens The Salem River The Land that Civilization Forgot While not part of the Pine Barrens the Salem River is an important part of the South Jersey paddling scene At approximately 30 miles long the Salem runs through the Supawna Meadows National Wildlife Refuge the Mannington Meadows Complex and the Salem River Wildlife Management Area It is one of the largest tributaries to the Delaware River and covers more than a third of breathtaking Salem County Jim Waddington has been paddling the Salem for more than 30 years and still is overwhelmed by its enveloping quietude It s an unspoiled vista says Waddington economic development director for Salem County You can canoe down that river and see a few historic eighteenth century farmhouses but other than that there are very few signs of human intrusion According to Waddington the trip down the Salem is fairly straightforward It begins at Kings Highway in Sharptown where the road passes over the water and winds its way down to Hawks Bridge Road where it meets a dam that is difficult if not impossible to cross The entire trip can be made in less than three hours he says But take your time if you are quiet you just might spot a few falcons osprey
