Not-to-be-missed hiking here, including trails to Mount Tammany and Sunfish Pond, with views of the Delaware Water Gap.

Hike to some of the best views in northern New Jersey on over 26 miles of trail. Highlights include a section of the Appalachian Trail (7 miles) leading to a glacial lake, the challenging hike to the peak of Mt. Tammany (1527 ft), and the Rockcores Trail, a new interpretive trail.

Best way to see it all? Stay overnight at one of the 69 tent and trailer sites, which come with picnic tables and fire rings. These are open April 1 – December 31, and have a fee of $20/night for NJ residents (or $25 for out of staters). There are also three group campsites available.

Beyond hiking, there is also plenty of activity along the Delaware River, where you can fish, canoe, or kayak.

To start I would like to say that I have been camping here since I was a toddler. I remember when camp sites where 12-15 a site for the same stuff they have now. I love this camp ground and it was so posed to be my happy place it's the place I go when I'm having a bad mental day like today. I understand not wanting to refund credit but I gave you $25 then had a mental brake down. So for the other campers I went home called and asked if I could get a refund even said please in tears when I was braking down. ( On the phone not to make a seen for your office) so thank you you have ruined one of my last safe places and now I'm home one step closer to the edge thanks.👍

It was nice to camp near the river! Our site looked right out onto the river but it was still nicely tucked away in the woods. We hiked mt. Tamany during the day- it was just a short drive away.

I did this as a fall foliage trip in October with a couple of friends. We set up camp after a full day of hiking mt tammany to sunfish pond followed by dinner in the AT thru hiker town of East Stroudsburg, right over the bridge. The campsite is nicely kept and spaced out enough between sites. It is right on the river and supplies a fire pit. We did not pack food to prepare at the site, so if this is something you want to do I'd bring a table/chairs because not all spaces have a lunch table. If not, the town is within driving distance to go grab something to eat.
