Paradise Valley Homestead

11 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents33 acres · West Milford, NJ
GREAT NEWS!!! As of April 5th, my long awaited 1st Glamping site is available for booking! Please read the description carefully of the "Gypsy Rose Vardo", to see if it's the right fit for you. We have 10 large camping sites available on our 33 acre property located in Northwest NJ. Sites 1 through 4 are on mowed, fairly level fields and are large enough for campers or RV's up to 30ft, or a couple of tents, and sites 5 and 6 are further back in the woods, available only for a few small tents, sites 7 through 10 are much further into the property and are only accessible with a high clearance AWD or 4WD SUV or you can park and hike your gear in. There are 3 compost toilet outhouses spread out through the Hipcamp, so it's an easy walking distance from any site. Although we are only 2 1/2 miles from a main highway, the last 2 miles are on a dirt road with no houses. We are surrounded by protected land, so no neighbors and lots of wildlife, including the occasional bear, coyote or raccoon. Keep all food items secured. Because we are surrounded by protected land we are not sprayed for insects, so be safe and do tick checks often and bring the bug spray. We are 45 minutes from NYC or the Delaware Water Gap and an hour away from the NJ shore. There are horse farms nearby that offer trail rides. We are also close to the Highland and Appalachian Hiking trails. There are two reservoirs within a 20-minute drive for canoeing or kayaking. There are walking trails through our property, including a ten-minute hike on a marked trail to a small waterfall in a ravine.

TJ’s Beautiful Forest

1 site · RV, Tent2 acres · Wharton, NJ
When water levels are high there is a small creek that runs through the middle of the property. The property has a central clearing that’s perfect for RV parking, tent set up, as well as a fire pit with firewood that is supplied on the property for purchase! It is seasoned for at least two years and protected from the elements, so it is very dry. The location is super low-key at the end of a private street. Minutes from some of the state's larger lakes, such as Lake Hopatcong, and Mt. Hope Pond. Easy access, minutes away from the state's major highways. There are well known nearby ponds, where one can swim and enjoy these different Lake beaches. There are also a ton of great food spots in the immediate area, and a big shopping mall in Rockaway. There are several grass areas that are well maintained for tent setup or other recreational activities. Fishing is excellent in this area as well, with a ton of local spots. The property has a table and chairs for eating and relaxation. Wildlife sightings are abundant, an amazing opportunity for nature lovers. This is a double lot, one site with a new home being built, the other designated as a campground and nature preserve. I allow access to indoor garage area in case of bad weather.

The best camping near Cheesequake State Park guide

Overview

About

Cheesequake State Park is a remarkably diverse landscape consisting of hardwood forests, swamps, freshwater and saltwater marshes, open meadows and pine barrens. The park is an example of what grows in the transition between the coastal salt marshes and inland forests of New Jersey. A number of trails meander through the area so you can explore the diverse vegetation up close and personal. Dust off those botany skills from school or visit the Interpretive Center for a little history refresher. Afterwards you can spend time fishing or swimming in the well stocked Hooks Creek Lake or try your hand at crabbing along the bridge at the lake. You might be thinking, this all sounds awesome but where can I get some cheesecake? Sorry to break it to ya, but cheese don't grow on these trees!

When to go

The ideal time to visit Cheesequake State Park is during the spring and fall when mild temperatures create perfect conditions for outdoor activities. Summer brings warmth and a full bloom of park life, but also larger crowds. Winters can be brisk, offering a peaceful solitude, yet some facilities may be limited. Plan your trip accordingly to make the most of this natural sanctuary.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's operating hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, before planning your visit.
  • Stay informed about trail closures or advisories by visiting the park's official website.
  • Accessibility varies across different areas of the park; some trails may not be suitable for all visitors.
  • Remember to pack essentials like water, sunscreen, and insect repellent for a comfortable experience.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to confirm their status ahead of time.
