Dennis Creek Wildlife Area

River Access Point

Jake's Landing in the Dennis Creek Wildlife Management Area is a well-known site, popular year-round with fishermen and birders alike. For fishermen, the boat launch at the end of Jake's Landing Rd. provides easy access to Dennis Creek and from there to the Delaware Bay, which is approximately 3.3 miles from the boat launch. For birders, the experience begins with a slow pass along the 1.3-mile road. Majestic white pine stands, which were planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, are found among acres of dense wet forest extending far to the west.

The vast expanse of the tidal wetlands comes into view as one leaves the forested area, offering numerous seasonal bird and animal sightings. The Dennis Creek WMA includes a boat ramp with access to the Delaware River. A valid boat ramp maintenance permit from the New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Division is required to use the boat ramp. The fee is $15 per year.
