Camping in the Pinelands

Public campgrounds are for people who really like getting back to nature. Some campsites are termed primitive; only providing pit toilets. Others are called wilderness sites and include potable water, campfire rings and outhouses. Family sites offer flush toilets, cabins, yurts, shelters and lean-tos. Public campgrounds are usually the least expensive. Private campgrounds offer more amenities, including hook-ups, restrooms and possibly a convenience store. More information can be found at their website.

Camping at Wharton State Forest and Canoeing at Micks

Whether your group is Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts or just family and friends, and you want a weekend of camping and boating Micks can help. Rent canoes and kayaks for two or more consecutive days and receive a discount. Call or stop by the store for more details.

Rent four or more canoes or kayaks and stay at the Hawkin Bridge, Godfrey Bridge or Bodine Field campsites which are located on the Wading River in the Wharton State Forest and we'll provide transportation to or from the campsite. All you have to do is enjoy your trip.

All of the equipment arrangements must be set up at least one week prior to your arrival. Call our store at 609.726.1380 for help and information. The State Park Service is pleased to announce through ReserveAmerica their new reservation system for all overnight facilities within the New Jersey State Parks and Forests.
