More about Jonathan Dickinson State Park

During World War II, Camp Murphy was a Signal Corps facility for top-secret training in a new (at the time) technology called "radar." The camp was dismantled and the land transferred to the State in 1947. The State Park, named after a 17th century Quaker merchant, opened in 1950.

The park has a Visitor Center, concession and restaurant, camping, hiking, biking and equestrian trails, picnicking, fishing, boating, kayaking and canoeing. Boat tours of the river, equestrian tours and a farm wagon ride are available. Admission fee, boat ramp fee are additional. The Hobe Mountain Tower provides an overview of the park and Atlantic Ocean at the eastern end off U.S. 1.
