Camp at Blue Knob Park Campground

New Jersey Blue Knob State Park Campground

Added by The Outbound Collective

The Blue Knob Campground is infused with crisp Pennsylvania mountain air and enriched by the sounds of the native forest creatures. Climb to the top of one of the highest peaks in the state and admire the contours, folds, and colors of the mountain range.

Blue Knob Campground is the perfect place for a retreat anytime of the year. A mix of forest, mountain, and streams, this natural setting is truly alluring. Hike to the second-highest peak in the state for an incredible view of the Blue Knob park, or, ski its slopes in the winter. In fall, the glowing red, orange, and yellow leaves of the native trees bring a warm touch to the cool mountain air.

How to Get There

Wrong State

Blue Knob is a great place to camp and hike. However it is not in NJ, it is in Pennsylvania. Around 4 hours west of NJ.
