26 acres
1 site
1 Tent
Over 26 acres of open woods for you to choose where and how you would like to set up camp. There will only be one reservation allowed at a time, so the entire property is yours to enjoy. There is an open lot of approximately 2 acres at the beginning of the property adjacent to a quiet back road where you can park or set up camp. The back of the property is ideal for complete privacy and peace and quiet. This property connects to over four thousand acres of State Land that can be explored as you please. Fourteen miles of hiking trails offer magnificent views of the mountains and scenic Mountain Lake. The UACNJ Observatory at Jenny Jump is short drive, or a nice hike, from the property where free lectures and observing are open to the public every Saturday evening from April through October. The famous Shades of Death Road and Ghost Lake are also a short drive from the campsite.

Great host, great spot
Shawn was a great host. He’s very responsive and helpful with any questions. His land is really nice…lots of space to explore. Easy to get to and very secluded/private once there. We had an awesome time. We’re already planning on going back.

Shawn's place was excellent! It was very clean, and the trail systems were great to enjoy. Shawn was extremely responsive and very helpful as well. I would recommend Shawn's land to anyone in the future!

Great time!
Beautiful little campground! Good areas to explore and wander about and had a nice new firepit ring and cleared area at the top of the hill behind the field which was a great little perk. I think other campers or the host had left behind a good bit of chopped wood which was nice and there were plenty of options to find your own wood as well. I'd say our only slight disappointment was being close to a neighborhood (though so pretty at Christmas time with the snow) as the photos make it look a bit more secluded. Since there is so much area that keeps going into the woods behind the field it might be worth it to put one more cleared site for people to take advantage of deeper into the woods in all the beautiful space!

Amazing space, tons of options and your choice where you want to camp. There were some great looking spaces as you hike further into the property. So much to explore! Just a note, the deeper sites do require some walking and carrying gear. You can definitely create your own backpacking adventure and keep supplies in the car close by. We loved it.

Perfect Big Group Campsite
Shawn is a great host with an awesome property. Interestingly there are two established campsites with fire rings on the property, but we chose the one father from the road with the larger fire pit. With a big group of new campers having so much space to set up was great, and there was no shortage of trails to explore and views to be had on both the campsite property and Jenny Jump, which the campsite backs up to. We will 100% be back with our crew and hopefully will get to explore more of what this campsite has to offer!

My family and I had such a nice time camping on this great property! It's a beautiful piece of land with good trails and gorgeous trees. My kids loved exploring! Our tent was in a very peaceful spot, far from the road and noise. Shawn was awesome with communication! We definitely recommend it!

Perfect for group/dog camping
Beautiful campsite. Perfect for our large group! We had plenty of space and our dogs loved the location. Shawn was super responsive and answered all of our questions, and provided really detailed instructions which was so helpful. Highly recommend!
