Voorhees State Park Campground

Voorhees State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nestled in the hills north of High Bridge is forested Voorhees State Park, former home to ex-Governor Foster M. Voorhees as well as to the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Currently, the 640-acre park houses recreational sites, natural areas, and the New Jersey Astronomical Association Observatory.

The campground has no hookups, but this doesn’t stop small-RV owners from driving up the hill to the grassy sites. Tent campers may initially be dismayed by the sunny, open field and the trailers. Don’t be fooled—follow the small road as it disappears into the trees behind a NO RVS sign. The sites beyond are shady, secluded, and green."

This sad little campground seems to get the overflow of campers who can't fit into Spruce Run (see my review there). There are limited sites, some of which are on steep slopes, so drive in first then call back with the site # you prefer, unless you want to sleep on a hill. Most of the sites are right on top of each other, with the exception of #44. The facilities are not well maintained, reeking bathrooms, dirty showers. The plus - there is a dish sink. There are also some cute hiking trails (though short), and an observatory with telescope that is open on weekends, which is the only reason this review got 2 stars instead of 1. There are some nice wine-berry patches as well.
