Wharton State Forest ] [ Atsion ] Camping & Hiking ]


Atsion Village & Recreation Center:

Like Batsto Village, Atsion was once a thriving iron community. Atsion also had life as a "planned community", and as the "Atsion Farm" of Joseph Wharton. Reminders of Atsion’s past are visible on the east side of US 206.

Atsion is now a part of Wharton State Forest. It was a part of the New Jersey’s purchase of the Wharton Tract in the mid 1950"s.

Today the Atsion Recreational Center and lake serve as the focal point of Atsion. The following recreational facilities are available:

Public beach

Bath houses

Nature trail

Picnic area

Bathing is permitted from Memorial Day until Labor Day with lifeguards on duty (fee).
