Best in New Jersey: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
This campsite provides a great location to use as a base for day hikes. The tent site is situated beneath a canopy of two large Red Oak trees. This property was formerly a farm and has since grown back to a pioneer Hardwood Forest. There are stone rows throughout the farm and some areas that have been cleared of invasive vegetation and planted with native grasses to enhance the deer population.
We suggest day hikes such as Catfish Fire Tower, Van Campen's Glen, and Buttermilk Falls. Here's a list of our recommendations for hiking, fishing, and just plain old exploring:
The Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area (DWG) and nearby Walpack Fish and Wildlife Management Area in Layton have many hiking trails (See the National Park Service's website). Great areas for sightseeing, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting.
Buttermilk Falls, (find the trailhead on) Mountain Road in Layton. Hike to the top of the beautiful waterfalls near Walpack and take a 6.8 mile loop trail to Crater Lake.

Appalachian Trail (AT). Check out the AMC Mohican Outdoor Center located along the trail in Blairstown. The AT runs through the DWG. Offers hiking and sightseeing.
Long Pine Pond & Crater Lake in Walpack. Both are spring fed and great for swimming and boating (clear water).

We loved staying at Twin Oaks! Campsite was secluded but there is still close access to local activities and personal needs. Only caution is to be careful of falling acorns from the animals above.

This was a perfect site to set up camp and sit back by a fire. We had no problem finding the site, setting up and finding some peace and quiet for a weekend out of the city. Stephen shared a ton of great hiking and eating recommendations, and even drove up to the site with a small front-loader full of firewood.
The site has a fire pit, lots of nice, large stones to sit on around the fire, and a convenient pit toilet for when nature calls (not that you're not in nature). Water is available from a spigot downhill from the site, so no need to pack too much as long as you bring a container.
I can't wait to be back!

Charming and cozy
Stephen's cabin was so cozy and perfect for a weekend getaway. He went the extra mile to let us know about the area's amenities and to make us feel welcome. The goats are also amazingly charming.

This was a perfect spot for our weekend trip! The campground was incredibly well thought out and every aspect of our interaction with the owners was incredible! It was secluded so you didn’t even realize you were behind someone’s property. Potable water was easy to access, the bathroom was well maintained and the shower was lovely! It was also really nice to have firewood included with the site. Would highly recommend staying here!
