Welcome to Spruce Run Recreation Area, nestled near Clinton, NJ. This campground is a gem for those looking to escape into nature from April 1 to October 31. With a rating of 4.2 stars, it's clear that many campers have enjoyed their stay here.

The campground is known for its scenic beauty, especially the water views. Many sites are right by the reservoir, offering stunning sunsets and a peaceful atmosphere.

While the park used to be a popular swimming spot, the lake is currently closed for swimming due to algae blooms. However, there's still plenty to do. You can explore the nearby hiking trails or take a short drive to Ken Lockwood Gorge for some beautiful scenery and fly fishing.
