A hidden gem...

99% off people don't even know this area exists. If you want a quiet piece of beautiful forest to truly rough it and go camping for a few days, then this is what you have been looking for. Less then 10 min drive from town, but hiking in and finding a suitable place to make camp has the feeling of…

Primitive Riverside Camping

This site is part of the DEWA NRA system of primitive river sites between Milford and Delaware Water Gap.  All river sites, including the three Hornbeck sites, are paddle-in only, first-come first serve, FREE (see note below), and include a fire pit.  It is primitive so there are no other…

Great place for an adventure

A few of us rode in to the steam mills campsite on motorcycles and took a couple days to enjoy the mountain air and views.

Cold, but pretty great!

My first time staying at Stokes Stat Forest, December 2020. Chose this campsite based on the photos online, the river right there was a big deal. I knew it would be cold and planned accordingly. The days were a good temperature for hiking, the nights were chilly. Once the fire died down, I snuggled…

Deceptive photography on reservation website

This was my second time camping at High Point State Park, Sawmill Area, October 2020. I chose this campsite, 031, based on the photos on the reservation website and boy was I disappointed. We wanted to setup our large tent on the **flat** gravel driveway and our hammocks and relaxation area on…

Nice Secluded Campsites

My first time camping at High Point State Park, Sawmill Area, September 2019. I chose a campsite close to the restrooms and water spigot. It turned out to be very secluded, minus the foot traffic to the restroom at all hours. The campsite is mostly gravel so the platform is necessary. There are no…

Good State Park Campground

My first trip to this campground was September 2020. We wanted to get out of the house, but stay clear of other campers during the pandemic. This campsite, CS52, was in the woods and we were able to get the illusion of privacy by parking the cars along the road as a makeshift wall and pitching our…

Good Campground Near Other Interests

This was my second time camping at Swartswood State Park. I got one of the last available campsites and it was okay, but not one I would have normally chosen. This campsite was in the open grass area and not very private, but that was okay for this trip as I spent the days hiking around lakes and…

Don’t waste your money

I would start with the good if there happened to be any.

I’ll start with pulling into the campground. First of all you have to find your own site as there are no assigned sites available. This had us pulling our 33ft camper around the whole campground until we came across our site we settled for.…

Awesome location!

Shawangunk was SUCH a nice place to stay. So many good things - though a few things to keep in mind when you're booking, too. 

I definitely recommend trying to get the walk-in (meaning you can't drive to them) sites (8-15) because they're just a little bit more set back and kind of wonderfully…

Cold night but worth it

Kicked off my first camp in the US at Jenny Jump. 2nd April 2021, site 34. Plenty of space, car park within 20-30ft. Was a cold night, 24oF. Burrr. Hikes close by. Other campers friendly. Dog friendly on a leash.

Went here about 10 times already. Can't wait to go again. If your looking for a close beautiful campground look no further. So many activities for the kids but also when you wanna retreat back to your campground you can and it feels like you alone in the woods depending on what site you grab. God…
