Head down to the park office and buy a permit. $195 for the year. Must have fishing gear, various safety gear.

Keep in mind that if you get the permit now, it's only good until the end of the year.

The 3 day is 50 bucks. Good for a vacationer from another state, but less so for someone from NJ.

I stoped at the guard shack and the guard told me it's $10 per day for NJ resendents
Does the $175 give you unlimited access and beach 4X4 beach drive on

Im going to Long Beach Island this fall. $25 for Sept-May. Would love IBSP but I want to try LBI first to see if IBSP is going to be worth it. I really dont want to pay $195 for a sticker I dont use.

And yes thanks for pointing out that there is a gear requirement including a fishing pole per everyone over 12 years old.

MANDATORY EQUIPMENT FOR A MOBILE SPORTFISHING VEHICLE (MSFV)

Permits are issued to 4-wheel drive vehicle owners for fishing purposes only. Carrying the basic equipment listed is required whenever the MSFV is on the beach.
1) Fishing equipment and bait and tackle for each person over 12 years of age;
2) Tire gauge;
3) Spare tire;
4) Workable jack and board/support for jack in sand (3/4 in. x 12 x 12 in. plywood square minimum size)
5) Tow chain or snatch line;
6) Shovel;
7) Flashlight;
8) Fire extinguisher;
9) Auto first aid kit;
10) Litter/trash bag;
11) Minimum of 1/4 tank of fuel.

A current tide chart is highly recommended. Jumper cables for the vehicle's specific battery type are also recommended

Access
To use the bathing beach is $10 per vehicle. I dont think that allows for beach buggy access. If it does let us know because I would pay a daily rate.

$195 is for a Mobil Sport Fishing Vehicle Permit. All access.

$10. is for access to the park, beach, trails, fishing etc.. Does not include taking your Jeep on the beach. For beach buggy access is $195.

The $195 at IBSP is for the sport fishing permit/4x4 access so you do have to be actively fishing and along with the gear to go on you have to have fishing equipment and bait for every adult in the vehicle. Not sure of the age they consider as an adult but I've seen in previous years rangers checking permits and gear and actually make people pack up and leave.

Also for got to mention if you do any saltwater fishing I would recommend going on the state website and registering for your Saltwater Recreational Registry Program certificate. It's free and you just print the card out once you register. I've never been asked for it but was told that if asked you have to be registered and required to show proof of the printed card. I register every year and just toss it in with all my gear to drive on.

The problem with IBSP is that the Rangers don't seem to enforce the fishing rule. During the swimming season (June - Sept) there always seem to be a lot of people on the 4 x 4 area not engaged in fishing. They're out there in their SUV's sunbathing and swimming. It kinda pisses off us fisherman because they're everywhere taking up a lot of space and getting stuck.

There are no beaches in NJ that allow wheeling in beaches unless you are fishing, even then you need to fish and not just drive around. Don't you know your not allowed to do anything fun in NJ.

I noticed that as well. A lot of folks bring a couple of rods, stick them in the ground and never cast.

I've been going to IBSP for over 25yrs now. Only last year did I do it via 4x4 and fished. I fish. I spent some coin on my gear. But I also just enjoy the beach and the ocean.

And that's why I don't go there on Sunday during the summer season.
