2. Assunpink WMA, Assunpink Lake
3. Assunpink WMA, Stone Tavern Lake
4. Assunpink WMA, Rising Sun Lake

I don't know of many other places in NJ that require a launch permit. Where were you looking to paddle?
Also, the launch map on this website will sometimes include if there are fees or not for launching.
