You won’t go barking up the wrong tree with a pet-friendly campsite in New Jersey.
Man’s best friend deserves a treat, so pack some doggy biscuits and hit the road. Pet-friendly campsites are plentiful in New Jersey, from rustic A-frames to two-story treehouses. For hiking enthusiasts, try an RV campground around the Delaware Water Gap, or keep it old school with a tent along the Appalachian Trail—the boardwalk of Vernon’s Stairway to Heaven segment is especially paw-friendly. If you’re looking to truly exhaust some puppy energy, hike to New Jersey’s highest point at High Point State Park. After enjoying the view, you and your dog can unwind at a rustic campsite with a communal picnic area, fire pit, and hot tub. Though if your pet prefers swimming, you can make that dream come true with a campsite on Long Beach Island or Panther Lake. With so many options and amenities, you won’t be begging for anything at your New Jersey campsite—but your dog makes no promises.
