Photography Scavenger Hunt:
Get Your Camera Ready for Our New Jersey Scavenger Hunt!
Want a little adventure? We’ve created a scavenger hunt for every county in New Jersey. You can see them all here.
So grab your camera, download the map below, and head our to get some new photos and explore some new places!
We realize that your favorite photo spot might not be on the list, and that’s ok! These maps and lists are designed to get you to some new spots you might not have explored in the Garden State.
Once you’ve crossed all the spots off the list, let us know and we’ll send you a sticker!
De Korte Park
There is so much to do at this spot, from walking a few miles, to birding, to checking out NYC from afar. If you haven’t been here yet, it’s a must see!
Palisades Interstate Park
Hike your way all the way to New York State from Palisades Park. Make sure you pack your photographer’s hiking gear!
Ross Dock Picnic Area
If you want something a little more chill, pack a picnic (and your camera, of course!) and see the GW bridge from Ross Dock Picnic Area in a different part of Palisades Park.
Overpeck County Park
Roam through this county park to see everything, from the wetlands to the art installations.
Ramapo Valley County Reservation
You can do it all in Bergen County, so hike your way through it! Ramapo Reservation is great any time of year.
For more hiking spots in Bergen County, check out our hiking map.
Fort Lee Historic Park
Set up your tripod and get a long exposure shot of bridge traffic here — we have a guide to teach you how to get there and what to shoot!
Flat Rock Brook Nature Center
Walk through the forest (yes, the forest!) in Englewood at this Nature Center.
While you’re in the Palisades, check out Greenbrook Sanctuary and hike to these falls. You will not regret the views!
Poplar Road Wildlife Sanctuary
Poplar Road Wildlife Sanctuary is located on Poplar Road in River Vale, NJ, and it’s relatively unknown. As you approach Lake Tappan, you could drive by it and not even know it. There’s a small patch of dirt on the side of the road which fits about 5-6 cars and functions as its parking lot.
If you have small kids, this is a great place to take them out in nature without a long hike. Read our guide on Poplar Road Wildlife Sanctuary.
GWB from Hazard Beach
Last but not least, check out the U.S.’s busiest bridge from Hazard Beach for a unique view — directly under the bridge. See if you can spot the little red lighthouse on the New York side!
