“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 fewer pieces of trash. Virtually none. The bathrooms had great hot water and pressure, individual lockable shower rooms. Spaces were roomy and only slightly unlevel (some worse than others) and they were well spaced apart from one another. The water spigots were far from the RVs, but in the front, they provided long hoses. We also stayed in the back for a few nights, and there we had to use our own 50 ft hose.

There were miles and miles of incredible hiking and biking trails, with trailheads right at the RV area--trails with scenic overlooks and well marked blazes, picnic areas, sign posts, swamps, ponds, boulders, and streams. It's incredibly beautiful. We had good cell service with metropcs (t mobile towers) and could even have full blown phone conversations in the deep woods. The park is just over an hour from NYC.

Since we started RVing full time in December, this is hands down our favorite campground, and we'll definitely be back.

“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 lucky to find an available site.

The sites are mostly shaded and some of them look like they might be a problem leveling. All of them are back-in sites with water and electricity. The power was steady but the water hookups can be pretty far away and you might want to arrive with a 50' hose. There is a large area of grass to walk your dogs (on leash) and the additional services (bathhouse, dump station, garbage) are convenient to all sites. We got 3 bars of LTE on both our Verizon and AT&T lines. We'd stay here again.
