"Stopped by the highpoint to see if the Monument was open for summer and it was. There are 201 steps to the top where you can look out at the views through some windows. The beach was also open and there were several lifeguards on duty although the water is still pretty chilly. Non-residents are charged $20 during the weekends to enter the park and use the amenities.

"A return visit to the highpoint to replace a plaque with new wording for one of our Highpointers Club members who had donated the bench which was installed by park personnel last summer." - High Point (New Jersey), StoneMan, Apr 6, 2016
