Riverwood Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"It’s free to camp with a permit at Toms River Township’s Riverwood Park, but you have to pay in sweat. Only one of the ﬁve sites is accessible from a motor vehicle, and even then the potable water and toilets are a half mile away. The other sites are hike-in or canoe-in only. Campsites stretch out along 2 miles of the eastern shoreline of the North Branch of the Toms River. Amenities vary by site—some have brick ﬁreplaces, trash cans, or benches, but the Toms River Township Department of Recreation guarantees only the presence of a picnic table. In spite of eﬀorts to keep the park clean, litter tends to show up along the shoreline and near picnic tables.
The park is still pleasant and wooded, though, with sites sitting far apart in private clearings among thick underbrush. The two sites at the northern end of the park are almost never used. Another nearby site, located oﬀ Medjay Lane and known as the Kiwanis Campsite (site 3 on the map on page 104), is used frequently as it’s just 120 steps from a secondary parking area."
