“Best Part of NJ!”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2019

Overall Rating

This was a wonderful place to camp! Each campsite was spaced out so it felt private. There was electric and water hookups. When we were there they had extension hoses provided to reach your camper. One of the highlights for us was all the wildlife we saw. There was a deer and beaver near the campground and we saw a bear at a dista... more

“Nice Park in Northern NJ - Who Knew?”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2019

Overall Rating

This was one of those adventures that turned out great. The site was secluded yet had water and electric but no sewer and was far enough from the the next site that you got a good camping experience. Leveling blocks were needed on the paved pad, maybe an inch or two side to side. The campground was clean. Our site was a little buggy b... more

“Nice secluded Campground”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2018

Overall Rating

I arrived after hours and was able to pick an open site and pay using the drop box by the office.

My site had electric and water. Paved blacktop level site. Dump station is available for use for registered campers.

Restrooms are average. Kept in good condition during my stay.

Only 18 RV sites. Would recommend if in the area.

“Hidden Gem”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2018

Overall Rating

My husband had a job in Newark and it was incredibly difficult to find a campground close by within out budget. However, I stumbled upon this campground. The website was a tad tricky to navigate but was definitely worth the extra effort. It was roughly a 1 hour drive to Newark as well as Newark-Penn Station where we took the PATH train... more

“Outstanding Campground In North Jersey”

Reviewed May 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a county park (Morris County, NJ) but it's more impressive than most state parks I've been to, as well as some national parks. Certainly at least the NJ park system should take notes from this park. The price is right. The place is dog friendly. No extra cost for pets. It's clean. Honestly, I have never been to an RV park with ... more

“One of the few dog friendly campgrounds in New Jersey! ”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2016

Overall Rating

This quiet county park is perfect for someone looking to checkout the New Jersey countryside. For the price, it was an amazing find. The roads are well maintained, it was easy to find, and even though every site was full, it was very quiet! Think about calling for reservations before arriving. We pulled in on a Monday and were very luc... more
