We’re only days away from the start of spring here at Crystal Springs Resort in the pristine NJ Skylands. Spring is a season of rebirth and outdoor adventure. Northerners have been anxiously waiting to embark on golfing, fishing, and hiking trips since that first flake of snow slowly fell to the Earth in December. Whether you’re visiting us for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or a corporate retreat, you’ll quickly discover a wilderness wonderland here at Crystal Springs. We’ve hand-selected three of our favorite springtime activities, all of which are either on-site or a short drive from our luxurious family resorts near New York City.

Top 3 Springtime Activities in the NJ Skylands


There are dozens of things to do in NJ during spring, including ziplining, kayaking, and horseback riding, yet most of our guests want to play 18 holes at one of the six premier golf courses in NJ. The time to start making golf tee times is right now as hundreds of eager golfers are itching to dust off their clubs after a long winter. Our six unique courses have thrilling par three’s, including Crystal Springs Golf Club’s unforgettable hole #11. The links-style Ballyowen, a staggering ode to Ireland’s premier courses, is widely considered one of the best public courses in the U.S. Feel free to read about FootGolf, golf’s newest craze, and the hottest golf trends before making a tee time.

Fly Fishing

As the East Coast begins to warm, anglers of all ages start planning fishing trips into the lush NJ Skylands. Luckily for anglers young and old, we offer 2.5-hour guided fly fishing trips for only $175 per person. Our professional fishing guides have secret streams that are fully stocked with thousands of trout. While you’re encouraged to bring your own gear, we do provide complimentary poles, waders, bait, and tackle. These serene creeks provide the perfect mountain setting for a family-friendly half-day fishing adventure.

TreEscape Aerial Adventure Park

Two miles down the road from Minerals Hotel in Vernon, NJ, you’ll discover the exhilarating yet inexpensive TreEscape Aerial Adventure Park, one of our favorite things to do in NJ. Despite offering three hours of zip lines, rope walks, climbing, and obstacles for just $40, TreEscape remains a hidden gem here in the NJ Skylands. As one of the only four-season family resorts near New York City, our guests are always searching for kid-friendly activities – TreEscape is fun, safe, inexpensive, and convenient!
