Rate this Adventure New Jersey Jenny Jump State Forest

Added by The Outbound Collective

Located along the Jenny Jump Mountain Range, this park offers a rewarding summit hike (1,090 ft), fishing, boating, and secluded camping sites.

The park's 11 miles of trails include a hike up Jenny Jump Mountain for beautiful views of the surrounding area. In addition, there are opportunities for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and hunting within the park.

The park has 22 tent and trailer sites, with access to fire rings, picnic tables, showers, and toilets. These are open from April 1 to October 31. Alternatively, there are group cabins and shelters (close to the Jenny Jump Mountain summit) to choose from.

Keep in mind that this is black bear country!
