Friends Camping in Woods

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 and campfire rings. 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, a company 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.

 

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.

PUBLIC CAMPGROUND INFO

For those planning a camping trip to any public campground, please visit Campground Reservations, operated by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection. You must first create a NJ Campground Reservation account. You can then easily review reservations already made and track the status of you campsite.

 

TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR RESERVATION

  • When making your reservation, especially from a mobile phone or a tablet, you may find it easier to choose the List View as opposed to Map View to find available sites for the date that you entered.

  • Some areas of Wharton State Forest are considered Primitive or Wilderness campsites, enclosed pit toilets are available.

  • Access to Lower Forge and Mullica River campsites by boating, hiking or horseback. No motor vehicles allowed.

  • Alcohol is prohibited.
