Menantico ponds

Can someone give me info about this place? I'm dying to go there but have heard mixed things about it. Can you actually get back there with a car? Where do you go ? I've heard you can't leave your car parked far unattended because people break in and stuff... Any information would be great

The pros: big mud holes, fun hill climbs, swimming when its real hot. The cons: privately owned, if you get caught which people do it could be hundreds in fines. A jeep can get back there if you know the right entrance, prob not a regular car.

Its all risk vs reward, if you are going to go, go with somebody who has been there and knows what they doing. Thats the only way I would go.

no its illegal, that means you don't go. There aren't many legal places to wheel any more and going on illegal trails makes it that much more temping to take away the good spots, all it takes is one person to ruin it for everyone.

Thanks for your response that stinks I don't know if I would trust going there then.... I heard there were huge bass there too and wanted to fish! Another quick question where do you get a beach pass at IBSP and are you allowed to go on the beach right away? Do you have to pay for regular park entrance still After you get it? I'm gonna go down this weekend but it's a far trip so I'm hoping I can get on the beach the day I buy it

People are talking about banning motor vehicles from the barrens and wharton state park as well, so its best not to add fuel to the environmentalist's fire

You can get the beach pass right at IBSP, at the Rangers office. They give you the pass right there,(for $195.) after you fill out the paperwork. The pass is for fishing only...you will need the proper offroad equipment too. a board, a jack, a shovel, first aid kit, tow strap, I forget what else. Go to New Jersey Beach Buggy Assn. web site, or the parks website they'll give you all the particulars.

To me the pines are in decent shape for being as popular as they are. Most people understand that they have to take care of the area. Offroading in general fuels the environmentalists objections cause most dont understand it. If it ever got to the point of banning motor vehicles, they should just make you purchase a yearly trail pass.

That's because we take pride in the fact we can go there and help to clean it up. Have a big clean up every October. Apple Pie Hill was a mess last weekend so we took some time to pick things up.
