New Jersey and its surrounding states are home to some of the most breathtaking scenery the nation has to offer. If you’re looking for a spectacular way to spend a weekend in the great outdoors with the family, take your NJ car rental to High Point State Park near Sussex.


Drive your NJ car rental along Route 23, and you’ll find High Point State Park just seven miles north of Sussex, NJ.


Here’s a taste of some of the great activities you’ll find at High Point State Park when you visit in your NJ car rental from

Camping: Campsites at Sawmill Lake come complete with fire rings, picnic tables, and nearby flush toilets. Site reservations cost $20 per night for NJ residents and $25 per night for out-of-state campers. Group campsites and cabins are also available at High Point State Park.

High Point Monument: More of a must-see attraction than an activity, High Point Monument gives park visitors a chance to see the surrounding areas ( the Pocono and Catskill Mountains) from an entirely new vantage point. The monument stands at a staggering 220 feet and is open to the public on most weekdays and weekends.

Cedar Swamp Trial: This one-and-a-half-mile loop wraps High Point State Park’s bog, known locally as ‘Cedar Swamp.’ The bog is lined with numbered posts, each one corresponding with the park’s trail guide which lists different attributes about the bog’s flora and fauna.


High Point State Park is open daily from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. The park’s office is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.


There are no walk-in entrance fees, but visitors are charged a minimal fee per vehicle. Combine this small fee with your cheap car rental in New Jersey, and this is truly a budget-friendly destination!
