Old Pine Barrens Blueberry farm

1 site · RV11 acres · Presidential Lakes Estates, NJ
My property is an old blueberry farm. There are some trails through the property; but mostly it’s a quiet place to sleep in a small/medium sized self-contained RV (note: your RV or van must contain a toilet which must be emptied off-site. Further note: I DO NOT allow tents). If on the site in July, you can pick some blueberries (IF they are available) for your own use. The berries are chemical free. My neighbor also has a pick-your-own farm with tended blueberry fields. My site is in the NJ Pine Barrens which is renowned for its unspoiled nature, abundant, and diverse wildlife. It is also within the Pinelands National Reserve and within the area designated by the United Nations as an International Biosphere Reserve. Nearby is the Batona Trail, the Franklin Parker preserve, canoeing on Chatsworth Lake or the Wading River, bicycling through the Pine Barrens and and the cranberry bogs on the bicycle lanes on Routes 532 and 563, the quaint village of Chatsworth also known as the Capital of the Pines, Hot Diggidy Dog a food stand within the village of Chatsworth, and Brendan Byrne State Forest which includes the historic cranberry farming village of Whitesbog where the cultivated blueberry was developed by Elizabeth White and Dr. Frederick Coville. The Whitesbog Preservation Trust which manages the village has an extensive year round calendar of events.

The best camping near Allaire State Park guide

Overview

About

All aboard the antique steam train for a ride along the historic Pine Creek Railroad! The historic railway is the star attraction of Allaire State Park, chugging a scenic loop from the Allaire Historic Village, where your immersion in 19th-century life will be complete. Once you’ve explored the living museum, a former ironworks town, head down to the Manasquan River to kayak, canoe, or fish, or set out to explore the 20 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails. As for camping, there’s plenty of space at Allaire Campground, which has 45 tent or RV sites (no hookups), plus 10 shelters.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of the park’s campsites or shelters in advance via the NJ Outdoors website. 
  2. Online reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance. 
  3. Campsites, and especially shelters, book up as fast for summer and holiday weekends. Book your spot at least three months in advance to avoid disappointment. 

When to go

Whether you’re admiring the summer wildflowers or taking part in holiday festivities at Allaire Historic Village, there’s always something going on at Allaire State Park. However, be sure to check the opening hours for the different attractions. Train rides and visits to the Historic Village can be enjoyed daily through July and August, but on weekends only for the rest of the season (April through October), while the campground is open from April through December.

Know before you go

  • Allaire State Park sits 70 miles north of Atlantic City or just over an hour’s drive away. It’s just a 15-minute drive inland from the Jersey Shore, and the closest beach is Belmar.

  • Facilities at Allaire include a Visitor Center, gift shop, restrooms, picnic areas, and a seasonal sanitary dump station.
  • Pets are allowed at the park but must be kept on a six-foot leash.
  • Black bears are present in all New Jersey parks, so follow the park’s bear safety protocols.
