Just got back from a weekend at site 212 at Steam Mill Campground. This is comes with a platform and is a rocky site but pretty nice. Wood is hard to come by and will have to hike to find some locals selling. Bathrooms are ehh and well water is clean.

Stokes State Forest has four campgrounds. The Steam Mill Camping Area is tucked out the of the way and is the most primitive. It is the smallest of the campgrounds with 27 sites only suitable for tents or small trailers/campervans. The campground has a pit toilet and a well. Many sites are rocky.
This visit we hiked the Tillman Ravine trail (tip: make the trail a loop and visit both the ravine and the nearby old cemetery).
You can also drive or hike to Sunset Mountain Scenic Overlook for a view of High Point Monument. High Point Monument is the highest elevation in New Jersey and is located in High Point State Park which borders Stokes State Forest on the north. High Point State Park also offers camping, hiking, sightseeing opportunities.
