Bull's Island Recreation Area
2185 Daniel Bray Highway

Bull’s Island is part of the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park. It is bounded by the Delaware River to the east and the canal to the west. The main intake for the canal is located at the northern section of Bull’s Island. This 80-acre forested island provides numerous opportunities, including a day use area, playground, boat launch, and a section of the 70-mile D & R Canal Trail. The 42-acre natural area includes two unique forest habitats, the sycamore river birch type and American elm-silver maple type. A pedestrian bridge from the island crosses to the Pennsylvania side of the river and provides open views up and downstream of the middle Delaware River.
