The Ocean County Parks and Recreation has two parks which offer swimming facilities.  They are:

Ocean County Park in Lakewood
Berkeley Island County Park in Berkeley Township. 

The first one has a beautiful, freshwater lake and sandy beach.  The second is on the Barnegat Bay, also with a sandy beach.  Both beaches are staffed with lifeguards from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily from mid-June until Labor Day (conditions permitting).  The best part of all is that there is never a charge to use County facilities!  Both locations also have playgrounds, restrooms and picnic facilities.
