Camp Albocondo

Conservationists in Toms River Township had long tried to protect Camp Albocondo-a former private campground on the banks of the Toms River, which flows to Barnegat Bay. When a residential subdivision was proposed for the site in 2010, The Trust for Public Land helped purchase the site to protect it from development.

In November 2014, we transferred the land to Toms River Township and Ocean County to extend a greenway along the Toms River corridor. The permanent protection of Camp Albocondo's forests and wetlands ensures that the property will continue to provide flood protection for the surrounding community and safeguard the region's water quality.
