Bass River State Forest, Tuckerton, NJ May 6, 2015 $25 plus a $5 transaction fee for being a walk in (required by Reserve America), 186 sites

This was our first time camping in a New Jersey State Forest and we really enjoyed camping here. The woman at the check in office was very nice and informative letting us drive around the two loops to pick out our site. There are two loops in this campground North and South with a beach, picnic area between them. We chose the South Loop because the lake trail was within walking distance and we could sit on the benches and enjoy the view and wildlife. There are no hookups here but there are bathhouses and water within the loops. There is a dump station and pets are allowed only in certain sites. This campground was developed by the CCC who built the roads, trails, bridle paths, ponds, towers, nature observatory, shelters, picnic areas, cabins and a 67 acre Lake Absegami. The State Forest encompasses more than 27,000 acres in the Pine Barrens. The Batona Trail a walking trail for over 50 miles goes this Forest. It is also part of the Pinelands Natural Reserve. The bathrooms are older but they do have showers. We would return here if near the area again but it was so peaceful because during the week at this time of year there were only about five sites taken. Weekends they are very busy Memorial Day through Labor Day. Enjoyable stay! We camped at Bass River State Forest in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hike Joes Trail and enjoy sitting on the benches around the lake.

I didn't have a high expectation but I was delighted to find a clean, efficient modern office with friendly staff. We camped in a perfectly level site pretty much by ourselves. Just us and the Whippoorwills. We camped in a spot near a water receptacle and I didn't have to worry about going anywhere to fill up. I was there for the Bassman Triathlon and checked out well beyond check out time with no hassle from the staff. I changed the listing above to reflect "big rig friendly". We are not a big rig but there were quite a few there. The roads, and sites were plenty big enough to accommodate the largest 5th wheel or motor home. We camped at Bass River State Forest in a Motorhome.

This is a nice state forest campground in the Jersey woods. Quiet and well maintained. No hookups, but a dump station and potable water are available. Even though I only gave it a seven, that number is quite good for any park in NJ ( although if you were to read some of my earlier reviews, I was overly generous to some other NJ campgrounds). After spending way too much time in NJ commercial campgrounds, I would have to say that the state parks are the way to go and this one is pretty good. We camped at Bass River State Forest in a Travel Trailer.
