This nest was reportedly on a piling at the mouth of Matawan Creek, at a point just west of the intersection of American Legion Drive and Broad Street in Keyport. No nest existed as of the end of June 2014, but the area could easily accommodate additional nests in future years. There is a short term parking lot off Broad Street at the boat ramp; pull in beyond the spaces designated for the ramp to find 8-10 legal spots. The Keyport wharf offers a great vista on the nearby pilings as well as the shoreline east of the point. There is additional parking on West Front Street and in a municipal lot behind McDonaugh's Pub.

There is a tall channel marker on the Old Bridge side of the entrance to the Cheesequake Creek inlet, about 100 yards off the beach on a rocky jetty. It is one of a pair of channel markers, the other being on the Sayreville side of the inlet. No nest was spotted at this site in July 2014, but both markers would make feasible if noisy spots for nesting ospreys.

This roosting spot is at the top of a white oak tree overlooking Treasure Lake in the Cliffwood Beach section of Aberdeen, New Jersey. Osprey were often seen in this tree in 2015 but foliage obscured observation from the ground. In the summer of 2016, multiple visual and audible observations confirmed weeks of feeding and defense of the spot but no nesting activity.

The nest is located on the Monmouth County side of Whale Creek, just off Ocean Boulevard and across from the fishermen's parking lot at Cliffwood Beach in Aberdeen Township, New Jersey. Besides going to the shore and parking to go view the nest, there is a viewing stand with a NJ State Park interpretive sign and bench you can sit on along the Kavanaugh Trail in Cheesequake State Park. The wooded trail is accessible from Lakeshore Drive not far from the Aberdeen Twp Maintenance Center on Lenox Road. A wooden archway has the trail name marked at the street edge. The trail is new and can be pretty muddy after a rain, so wear proper foot gear. There is a description of the trail, creek, et al at Aberdeen NJ Life blog.
