Bull’s Island Recreation Area
2185 Daniel Bray Highway
Stockton, NJ. 08559
There ain’t no bull on this island. She’s a drop-dead knockout. Bull’s Island sits within the gorgeous 70-mile Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park.
The island sits on 80 acres of immaculate land in the middle of the Delaware River. A bridge connects you to the park via the New Jersey side and you can also get here from the Pennsylvania side. There is a pedestrian walkway that connects you via Lumberville (in beautiful Bucks County) near the pristine Black Bass Hotel.
There’s no bull about this structure.
This forested natural area supports a floodplain plant community with mixed oak trees among the landscape. Bull’s Island also boasts itself as one of the best spots to observe the spring migration of pretty birdies in all of NJ.
Such offerings are prothonotary warblers and cerulean warblers. Yes, I am trying to use BIG words. Making this a true bird enthusiast site.
The Bull’s island grounds are captivating. There are public facilities, boat launches, campgrounds, grills and semi-private beaches along the serene Delaware River.
The pedestrian bridge is impressive. If looking for a classy spot to grab lunch or dinner, the Black Bass Hotel is the way to go. It offers a wide selection of dining options overlooking the Delaware River. The town of Lumberville, in which the hotel resides, is one class act in itself worth exploring.
For the fishing nuts out there, bass in this area are huge! Bring your boat and get your fishy fishy on. Let’s go. The water is 80 degrees….aaaaaaahhhh…. Refreshing.
This is a wonderful place to go and visit. Bring the family. Make it an entire day. Go to Lambertville or New Hope for lunch in the general vicinity. This area is all worth exploring, trust me!
Bull’s Island is a natural beauty. I’m quite bummed I’m posting this island out to the world. I wanted to be the only “island woman” here. Now, I spoiled it for future generations 😦
However, my dear readers…I know you will treat it as special as I have.
Toodle-Loo…Yummygal is leaving for another adventure!
