Visit the Stephens State Park Home Page
The Musconetcong River, an excellent freshwater fishing spot, flows over and around boulders through Stephens State Park. An easy walking but rocky path follows the river with places for picnicking in shaded areas.

Two miles east along Waterloo Road at Saxton Falls are the remains of one of the Morris Canal’s twenty-eight locks and a section of the old canal’s towpath. The original canal was 90 miles in length, stretching from Newark to Phillipsburg, and was used to ship coal and iron across the state. However, the canal could not compete with the development of the Morris and Essex Railroad in the late 1800s, and the canal was eventually abandoned.
