Double Trouble State Park is located in Lacey and Berkeley Townships in Ocean County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. The park was once the Double Trouble company's company town. The park's wilderness provides a unique insight into the Pine Barrens ecosystem. The park is operated and maintained by the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry.

Double Trouble Historic Village[edit]

The Double Trouble Historic Village was originally a cranberry farm and packing plant. The Double Trouble Company was formed to sell timber, millwork products, and cranberries. Many sawmills have been in the town since the mid-18th century. The village consists of cranberry bogs and fourteen restored historic structures dating from the late 19th century through the early 20th century including a general store, a schoolhouse and houses. The sawmill was restored in 1995, and the cranberry sorting and packing house were completed in 1996.

The town was named for the fact that muskrats breached a local dam twice in one week.[1]

Cedar Creek[edit]

Cedar Creek's headwaters start from the Greenwood Forest Management Area to its mouth at Barnegat Bay. Cedar Creek provides the water needed for cranberry culture and provides a source of water for wildlife.
