Clinton Township NJ is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Round Valley Reservoir . Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


The beautiful blue waters of Round Valley Reservoir attract swimmers, boaters, fishermen, picnickers and campers to its shore. The lake was created in 1960 when two dams were built, causing water to flood the nearby "round" shaped valley. There are trails around the lake, Cushetunk Trail accesses the campsites, the Pine Tree Trail and the Family Hiking and Biking Trail are all opened year-round.


There is a darker side to this scenic area; it is sometimes called "NJ's Bermuda Triangle." Since 1971, there have been 26 deaths that have occurred in the reservoir, including six bodies that have never been found.

Legends include stories of lake monsters or mermaids, an ancient Indian burial ground and some think that the lake is cursed because of the small town whose houses, graves and lives were destroyed to create the reservoir. Are these lost souls seeking revenge by taking another for disturbing their resting place? The saying in the area is, "If one body comes up, then another one is going down soon. "

Local law enforcement says it is human error, strong winds and the cold temperature of the lake that have caused the drownings in the area.
