Wharton State Forest: Batona Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Far from the beaten path sits distant Batona Campground, directly across the road from Carranza Memorial. No sites are demarcated on the ground alongside the unimproved sand road, and fire pits made by past campers are the only indication that campers have stopped here for the night. Two outhouses, a water pump, and a sign are the only developed features here under the pitch pines. Campers will encounter little auto traffic in the campground, but they may meet a hiker or two.

Batona Campground sits in the sand alongside the legendary Batona Trail, a 50-mile, mostly flat hiking path that traverses Pinelands National Reserve. The Batona (an acronym for Back to Nature) Trail passes through parts of Brendan T. Byrne State Forest and Bass River State Forest as it winds its way across the Pinelands, but more than half of it is located within Wharton State Forest."
