The Forked River Rest Area on the Garden State Parkway is now closed until Memorial Day, 2020, as they construct a brand new rest stop.

So this means no parking, gas, rest rooms, or food will be available.

Motorists are advised to gas up prior to getting on the Parkway or be able to stop in Monmouth County at mile-marker 100 at the Monmouth Service Area or to the South in the Atlantic City area at the Atlantic Plaza Service Area at mile-marker 41.

Keep this in mind as you travel the Garden State Parkway here at the Jersey Shore.
