New Jersey Campgrounds Resource List: Camping in NJ, PA and NY

Saturday, May 18, 2024
Thinking about finding the perfect family campground this summer? The idea of planning a fun-filled outdoor adventure might seem daunting, but never fear! I've found some great family campgrounds that might be a good option if you're looking for vacation and travel ideas.

*This post has been updated for 2024!

I will update this post each year, so be sure to Pin it for future use!

Just a disclaimer that I have not personally visited every campground in this post. This is primarily a resource for you to use on your own. I usually say I would never recommend something to you unless I have tried it and loved it myself, so if I have personal knowledge of any site listed here, I noted it next to the link.

Favorite Family Campgrounds, Resorts and All-Inclusives

These resorts may offer individual cabins or extra accomodations as opposed to just camping in a tent or bringing your own RV. Please call ahead or visit each website for information, since regulations and availability may change. Keep checking back, as I will be updating and adding more to this list as I receive more information.
