The Center consists of 82 acres of gently rolling hills and quiet forested areas. The land is operated by the Hunterdon Conservation, Education and Recreation Council, Inc., a non-profit corporation. Our facility is directed by volunteer trustees who oversee the maintenance of the facility. the Center's lands and structures are leased from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and is operated and maintained through the donations of user-groups and private individuals. The Center has 1800 feet of frontage on the tranquil Round Valley Reservoir, which is a New Jersey Water Conservation Project.
