Kraft’s Bridge | New Jersey Swimming

Krafts Bridge

Kraft’s Bridge is one of the few safe New Jersey swimming spots. Being a general flat State, you need to be in Northern Jersey to get some real jumping done. Never the less, this bridge stands 40′ over an estuary running off the Delaware River. Located just north of Mount Laurel, this spot is connected to the Rancocas State Park. Spot found using the Big Swings App.

The water is not clean as it constantly moves with the tides, collecting dirt and becoming darker the further it gets into the land. With the tidal water you need to be extra careful. Do not jump at low tide, the water is way too shallow.

Parking – There is street parking a block from the train track entrance

Trail – There is no trail, just train tracks.

Depth – Depths depend on time of day and tidal charts.

Height – 40′
