Spring Camping in Stokes State Forest!

We're returning to one of our favorite parks for our first camping trip of the year! This park has many hiking trails, including six miles of the Appalachian Trail. There are great views from the top of Sunrise Mountain and in the Tillman Ravine Natural Area. The park includes a portion of the Kittatinny Ridge, and is near High Point State Park and the Delaware River. Check-in starts on Friday at 12pm, check-out is Sunday at 12pm. Those are the dates/times we can officially occupy the site, but you can arrive at, and leave the park basically whenever you want. Flush toilets and hot showers are a short walk away.

We will collect a fee on site, once we know the total amount per person to cover the cost of the campsite, plus propane, firewood, and any other shared expenses. We also collect $1 per person per night for Campers' Group on most multi-day trips.

    Remember that we are in the Haskins campground, group site H. Turn into the main park entrance on Coursen Rd, go to the end and make a left onto Kittle Rd, at the end make a right, and bare right. I believe site H is on the right.

      Jennifer, understand that our start and end times are the earliest you can arrive, and the latest you can occupy the campsite. You can arrive anytime you like.

    It looks like it might rain a bit on Friday. Does anyone know if there's a pavilion to chill in if it does??

      I heard about thunderstorms/lightning.­

      I don't think there is a shelter for us. With my present workload, it doesn't look like I can make it there Friday night.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
