Whether you’re looking to pitch your tent beneath the trees in a dense forest or along open expanses of shoreline, New Jersey has a campsite for you. In the summer, beach camping is a fun way to explore miles of scenic shoreline, fish, and catch some waves. Tom’s River and Cape May are both great options. If you’re looking to explore the New Jersey State Parks, two good choices are Allaire State Park near Asbury park, and High Point State Park in Sussex, which offers tremendous views, especially when the leaves change color in the fall. In the Pine Barrens, visit Wharton State Forest for canoeing, hiking, wildlife watching, and a bit of history (the park is home to a former bog iron and glass-making center). This is also a great place to throw your tent and camping gear in a kayak or canoe and set off on a mission to explore some of the Pine Barrens’ less accessible areas. Many of the state's campgrounds are family friendly, so don't stress about traveling with the kids.
