When New Jersey campgrounds reopened after 13 months of being closed, we got a little over excited.  We booked two campsites which, along with Scout campouts, made for four straight weekends of camping.  This was our family camping weekend, and we decided to try a campground we’d never been before.  It was a little chilly, but we enjoyed it!

Water: Water spigots at camp

Bathrooms – Flush bathrooms.  Even has showers!
Trash – dumpster
Others:

Camping area (#23)

Lantern hook

Fire ring and picnic table

Playground!

Food protection – no bear boxes (low bear risk).  Store food in car, especially if you don’t want to make friends with skunks or raccoon.

Facilities (each site):

Group campsites – 4 in park, 25 people each

Regular campsites – 54 tent and trailer sites

Cabins – 18 cabins

Seasons: All four seasons?  Not listed.

Other tips:

As with all sites in the New Jersey State Parks – no alcohol is allowed.  They can and will write tickets.

Some sites are near water.  Everyone can walk over to a viewing area by the playground:

Positives – Sites close to the trails and lake.

Negatives – Like many New Jersey campgrounds, the sites can be very close together.

Nearby trails and things to see:

The Parvin Lake Trail goes right through the campground.  There are also other nice trails in the park.  Park also has a swimming area with lifeguards during the Summer.  Canoeing and kayaking can be done on the lake.
