About Rainbow Lake in Pittsgrove

It’s hard to imagine it today, but according to this story in the Vineland Daily Journal, Rainbow Lake in Pittsgrove was once considered to be the “Coney Island of the Vineland-Bridgeton area”. It was a summer resort that featured brass bands, dancers, and a great entertainment pavilion over the water with balconies facing the lake. In 1952 the pier burned down in a fire, and the owner decided not to rebuild it, being only partially insured. In 2001, the state declared it a Wildlife Management Area.

Today, Rainbow Lake still features stunning natural beauty, especially its amazing sunsets. It’s also a destination for fishing enthusiasts, with an ample supply of bass in particular. Despite occasional problems with water levels…there was a dam rebuild in 2007…there are even tournaments held from time to time. The Lake is also a quiet and beautiful setting for canoeing and kayaking, with public and private boat ramps. It’s an excellent place for quiet in the morning.
