Experience the Outdoors with Family & Friends

There's something about relaxing around a campfire telling stories with family and friends that makes daily stresses and troubles melt away, if at least for a while. Camping with family increases a sense of togetherness and allows for a time without modern distractions. So leave the television and video games behind (and even the handheld devices) and go camping!

Get out in the woods while staying close to home at the Turkey Swamp Park Family Campgrounds in Freehold, New Jersey. The campgrounds, open from April 1 through November 15, offer facilities for both tent camping and travel trailers. Of the 64 sites, 52 are available by reservation and 12 are available on a first come, first serve basis. Looking for great campground amenities to make your trip rustic yet still comfortable one? We've got 'em:
  • Wooded campsites
  • Electrical service
  • Water service
  • Drinking water
  • Modern restroom with hot showers and laundry machines
  • Dump station
  • Fire rings for charcoal cooking and campfires
  • Picnic tables
  • Children's playground
  • Pay phones
  • Vending machines
  • Quiet hours from 10pm-7am
Paddleboat Rentals at the Lake!But Turkey Swamp Park offers more than just campsites. While there, make sure to enjoy all the park has to offer:
  • A lake where you can fish for bass, catfish, and bluegills. (Visitors must have a NJ fishing license - not required for those under 16.)
  • Rentals of canoes, rowboats, kayaks, and paddleboats.
  • Nine miles of multiple use trails great for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians.
  • Plenty of open space to fly a kite or toss a ball around.
For those who don't have a tent or trailer, the campground also two comfortable cabins (one ADA accessible). The cabins feature a double bed, two sets of bunk beds, lights and electrical outlets. Outside each cabin is a water spigot and picnic area with a fire pit.

There's nothing stopping you but yourself! Reserve your site today by calling (732) 462-7286 (after 11am daily) or by filling out the Reservation Request Form.
