The Holgate Unit is located at the southern tip of Long Beach Island, New Jersey and has been a part of Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge since 1960. It is about three miles long, and contains more than 400 acres of pristine barrier beach, dunes, and tidal. In 1975, Congress designated the area as a National Wilderness Area. Federal regulations prohibit the use of motor vehicles within wilderness areas; therefore, no motor vehicle use (driving or parking) may occur above the berm crest (see photo bottom left).
