Tilcon Lake (Lake Tilcon/Hidden Lake) - Allamuchy Township NJ

Site is an old flooded sand and gravel quarry as several storms dumped large amounts of rain in northern NJ (Floyd, Irene, Sandy just to name a few) causing the Musconetcong River to spilll it’s banks, forming what is today Lake Tilcon. Water has nice visibility, it is one of three lakes that the state stocks with landlocked salmon (Aeroflex and Waywayanda being the other two). There are some structures underwater, large boulders, piping from the old quarry, and we did find an old wooden cart as well. To access the lake, park at the gate on Kinney Road (just past the bridge) and follow the paved road to the lake. When you initially see the lake, it is the spot where paddlers launch their watercraft. Hang a left and on the path about 300 feet or so there will be another access point through the bushes for a nice sandy entry.
