Hi Strom,
The lake near paradise road is mostly surrounded by private property with houses. The Franklin Parker Preserve might own some land on the west shore, but would not be accessable by vehicle. I've never fished it

there are several old bogs along Burrs mill branch south of 70. the only access I know of, and use is here http://maps.njpinebarrens.com/#lat=39.88989326234983&lng=-74.63485226007935&z=20&type=hybrid&gpx=
As you near the brook there is some erosion and 4x4 would help. you also have to drag your kayak a little before you meet the brook. You might want to scope it out before you haul your kayak down there. It means you have to kayak to get to the old bogs either west, or east to get to the old resivour. There are pickerel in there.

I hate pickerel! This is what a 23" pickerel did to me on Friday when I couldn't locate my pliers and decided to stick my fingers down its throat to remove a lure.
