Is this off limits?

Don't really know anything about that place myself, but according to my parcels map ( ), most of that lake is private. Not sure about that small parcel at the North end though.

Looks like you could go part of the way through that small section of Parker Preserve from the road - although those two small parcels right on the road could be private? That appears to be a road easement from the road to the North and East sides of the lake.

Also notice how the Parker Preserve polygon is shifted over from the parcel boundaries. This is a common problem with the state's openspace data, it doesn't match the parcel maps. I know Scott has raised some good issues regarding the accuracy of the parcel maps, but in my experience they are much more accurate than the State's openspace dataset. ;)

You have to be really careful going in there. I accidentally entered private property there because the signs are confusing. I looked at my GPS and realized I was on the wrong road and turned around. On my way out a hunter from the club blocked my path. He was pissed. It was the evening before hunting week.

I will write more tonight. Scott may have some input also.

West Jersey Cranberry Meadow is private. I worked with one of the owners. Scott can also give input on this.

Boyd, I downloaded your Map Of The Pines, Big Burn, and the Parcels Map. I have given you some likes but just wanted to thank you for what must have been many, many hours of hard work. I am still getting up to speed mapwise, but will spend some time figuring out what devices I can use them on. Thanks!
