NJ Merrill Creek Reservoir
Marker Description: Merrill Creek Reservoir has several areas to pull off and park for hiking and fishing but this is the only official launch site for boats and kayaks. I attempted to launch from the tower area and some eagle watchers (there are often nesting eagles near the tower where the water is sucked out of the Delaware to fill the reservoir) said they would call the rangers on me because everyone needs to check in who goes out on the lake. Needless to say this place is regulated and the people act as police as much as the rangers. So.... you must enter the lake from the marker location - boat launch. Or get around these crazies. Gates open at sunrise and dusk. So it is a little annoying having to hurry back.

The lake is on the top of the mountain and gets choppy, otherwise beautiful place.
