    Lebanon, New Jersey

    Welcome to Round Valley State Park Campground, nestled near Lebanon, NJ. This spot is a favorite for those looking to escape into nature without straying too far from civilization. The campground operates from April 1 to October 31, offering a perfect retreat during the warmer months.

    The campground is known for its stunning views and serene environment. The crystal-clear reservoir is a highlight, providing opportunities for fishing, kayaking, and even a refreshing swim. Just be mindful of the mud when wading in. The sunsets here are absolutely breathtaking, painting the sky in hues that will make you want to stay forever.

    For those who enjoy a bit of a challenge, the hike to the campsites can be tough but rewarding. The trails are rocky and hilly, so pack light and take breaks as needed. If hiking isn't your thing, you can also paddle in, which many find to be a more enjoyable way to reach the sites.

    Each campsite is equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring, making it easy to settle in and enjoy a meal by the fire. Drinking water is available, but some campers prefer to filter water directly from the reservoir for convenience. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    Visitors have praised the campground for its peaceful atmosphere and the helpfulness of the staff. Whether you're here for the fishing, the hiking, or just to relax by the water, Round Valley State Park Campground offers a little slice of nature's paradise.
