because they allow pets & Turkey Swamp - Freehold, NJ
« on: January 02, 2012, 11:14:07 AM »
One of my favorites! We stumbled upon this one because they allow pets & when we were looking, NJ state parks did not. (Don't know if that's still the case)
 
Anyway, a great park. Huge wooded, sandy, pull in sites with water & electric hookups, as well as individual metal trashcans & recycle containers at each site. A word of warning; due to the size of the sites, in some cases, a very long water hose (40-50') is needed to stay hooked up at your own site depending upon how you position your camper. We prefer the sites on the outside perimeter of the campground as they back up to woods. The inner sites back up to each other & can be very close to your neighbor. The roads through the campground can be a tad tight if pulling a big trailer. All are passable, just go slowly & keep your eye in your mirror to watch that your backend clears some of the trees.

The park is lovely & has many amenities. (boating, hiking, archery, numerous playgrounds, picnic shelters, fitness trail) We especially liked that we could walk along trails to the main park area instead of having to drive to the day use area as is common in many state parks.

Acenorm mentioned Turkey Swamp in Freehold NJ as well.  2 people mentioning it, thats a good thing.  It is $32 per night but it sounds like they have lots of amenities.  And they still allow pets  :dog: :cat: :turtle: , at least in 2011 per the website.

A friend told me about some of the New Jersey county parks and when I checked them out online there were a number that looked very nice.

We've been wanting to check out some of them but haven't been able to get them on our schedule yet. We usually head to state parks west or southwest from home so our son and his family can join us without having to drive so far. French Creek is another destination when DW's father wants to visit when we're camping.

We've stayed there several times and it is a very nice campground. DW usually has her family join us for dinner since they think we're crazy going camping.
