Need camping/hiking ideas

Recommended Posts

AT is free at the Delaware Water Gap NRA, just beware of the snakes and bears, or camp at Hickory Run State Park in PA, all kinds of trails there, Boulder Field, and if you take your bikes you can ride the Lehigh Gorge Trail next door. Rafting is available on the Lehigh River but you'll need to check the schedule with vendors.

Check out the old loggers trail. It might be a little more than 3 hours drive depending on where in jersey your leaving from but it's a nice hike and it's a 27 mile loop so park on friday start on the trail and get back to your car on Sunday. It followed an old narrow gauge railroad so not much steep grades. And it's all free backcountry camping. There are a few pre made campsights along the trail that arw first come first serve. nothing in the way of tubing but there are a few streams. Yellow dog has some great trout fishing if your into that. One of the best dinners ive ever had was fresh trout caught there and cooked over the camp fire after a long day of hiking!

Start your hike in Batsto Village.  You'll hike 11 miles through the pine barrens to Atsion Lake.  There are two camp grounds along the way. .One is called Lower Forge and it's primitive site.  There is a second camp ground with a water pump but I can't remember the name.  Trails are easy to follow and you have a river on both sides so it's just about impossible to get lost.

Or...

do the same journey the other direction (Atsion to Batsto) in a Canoe on the Mullica River.  Canoe camping is great because you can carry lots and lots of gear, it's easier than walking, and it's fun.  We've done this trip a dozen times.  It will be very easy now because we've had so much rain.  If it's been dry, it can be tough to get through a few low spots but it should be smooth sailing (no pun intended) now.  You'll end up about a mile, maybe less, from Batsto.  There is easy parking on both ends of the trip right where you launch the boat and right were you take out.

Thats right. Ive roughed it for years and screw that anymore. Everytime I tented it rained all weekend. Dont get me wrong we still go out primitive every now and then but Im too old for that crap all the time anymore. Rather have my stereo and blender pumping. Plus I own a primitive cabin in 2 states when I wanna get in touch with nature.

Wading pines in Basto/Chatsworth . You can tube and hike. Or kayak. Although the river was too high a month ago.

full hook ups. Little pricey. But easy parking with some pull through sights.

Cape May County has more camping spaces per square mile then anywhere else east of the Mississippi River. 

Belleplain State forest has RV sites, a lake and quite a few trails. 

Historic Cape May City is a nice area to walk, not really a nature hike but a beautiful walk nonetheless. 

Cape May Point State Park has a few miles of trails and beaches. 

You can stroll through Wildwood and get punched by the police (that’s a joke).

    • The first bottle, you may have a point.. The second, third fourth etc.... that becomes a systemic prescribing issue.    To your last paragraph.... how do you know he wasn't suffering from a medical condition? I don't agree with the driving part, tho. There isn't really any question to the addictiveness of pot, it is purely habitual. Taking a snap shot of someone's life and trying to analyze it isn't very productive in this conversation. We're getting into some hardcore reefer maddness here if were even going to start with comparing it to heroin....  Shit, i know women who cant relax without their nightly glass of wine, or people i literally cant talk to until they have their morning coffee. At the end of the day, we all do things that alter our mood, habitually.. I'm sure there are people here who get worked up if they don't go shooting regularly... 
    • @Ray Ray brother, you know I love ya but I'm afraid your taste is all in your mouth.  This is what Shockwave perfection looks like.  True, it's not as utilitarian as one decked out with lasers and lights and marine coating.  But. aesthetically, this is what perfection looks like.
    • I visited my enabler this evening to pick-up the S&W 296 Ti that I previously wrote about. In the normal course of events I asked him what was new. Seems that they got some very nice guns from an estate of a local veterinarian - one of which I bought, but that's fodder for another thread. He pointed me to three rifles on the rack. These still had the hang tags on them and had never been fired.  All three were Browning / Winchester / Miroku recreations. They are (stock photos): A Model 95 in .30-06 A Model 1886 in .45-70 A Model 71 in .348 Winchester They are all priced fairly - but not for the feint of heart. If there is any sincere interest in any of these, PM me and I'll give you the contact info for my FFL.  Just a disclaimer - I have no vested interest in these guns or this dealer - this is just a PSA. Adios, Pizza Bob 
    • I fear all governments want that, we are just leading the way.
    • Well I said on an earlier thread I want this over with.  Ginsberg aside, I'm ready for it all.  I want it brought to the SCOTUS the sooner the better.  I'm tired of all this nickle and diming with petty suits and want it all to go.  Tear it off like a band-aid. So go ahead and pass this crap.  I donate regularly and I'll donate more for the fight.  I want the freedoms to enjoy before I die.   I the mean time: STOCK THE "F" UP!! Every spare piece of change in your jars should go toward ammo.
