North Pemberton Railroad Station and Rail Trail

"Railway stations are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, and to them, we return."
E.M Forster


North Pemberton Railroad StationThe Railroad Station was built in 1892 by John S. Rogers of Moorestown. It replaced the earlier frame station which had burned in November of 1891 Built in 1892, The North Pemberton Railroad Station was in active use until 1969 when the last direct rail service between Pemberton and Camden ended. Restoration was completed in March, 1999. The Station is on both the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Sites.

Walk or ride your bike on the beautiful 2.5 mile rail trail and allow the spirit of the past to take you by the hand and lead you back to a simpler time.





The Railroad Station Museum was filled with many historical artifacts related to the railroad, the cranberry and blueberry industry, and regional history. All artifacts were donated by dedicated volunteers and local historians who make it possible for everyone to appreciate these fine relics. The hands that touched these artifacts were the hands that built this country and made it the great nation that it is today.

The Railroad Station is now owned and maintained by the County of Burlington, presumably by its Dept. of Recreation. No other information is available at this time.

The Pine Barrens is becoming a popular tourist destination. It offers history, nature, boating, camping, fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and tranquility. It's important to families who live here, whether for a few years or many generations, that our peace and tranquility be preserved.A local lawyer or doctor won't look any different than his neighbor who works the land. Thousand dollar suits aren't what impress people of the Pines - taking care of nature and fellow man is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know that as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect for the flora and fauna, for the historical buildings or their remains, and show respect for the "locals". Walk and drive gently. Treat our Pine Barrens as you would want a visitor to treat your own home town - and your own family. Thank you.
