Wharton State Forest: Atsion Family Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"New Jersey’s largest state forest has nine camping areas, with the capacity to hold more than 1,000 campers, but only 50 sites have access to flush toilets and hot showers. These sites are at Atsion Family Campground, the only fully developed campground in Wharton State Forest.

Atsion may not be as remote or secluded as Wharton’s primitive wilderness areas, but the sites are nonetheless beautifully wooded and private. The campground is easily reached by car. It has four paved loops suitable for small trailers as well as tents, although there are no hookups. Sites along the inner loops are close to the lake and farther from Atsion Road. Nine furnished cabins also sit along Atsion Road and look out over Atsion Lake."
