Bull's Island Campground Closed for 2011
« on: October 07, 2011, 03:40:41 pm »
Unfortunately, the recent storms have forced an early closure of the campground at Bull's Island Recreation Area on the Atlantic Coast route about 7 miles north of Stockton, NJ. It would have normally closed for the season on October 31st.

The day use area, which is on higher ground and has bathrooms and water, remains open.  This is a fantastic place that I take a couple of three-day trips to every year. Let's hope it reopens on schedule next April.

Sadly, the entire campground will be closed for the entirety of 2012. A portion will never reopen due to tree instability caused by flooding. A portion may reopen in 2013. The state is also exploring land acquisition to replace the portion permanently closed. The day use area remains open.

In addition to the campground on the PA side of the river across from Milford, NJ listed on the relevant addendum, there is a county park with a campground on the PA side of the river not far from Frenchtown, NJ.  Here are the details:

In either case, I strongly recommend staying on route, crossing into PA at either Frenchtown or Milford and then heading south to access the facility. This will minimize your time on PA 32, which has little to no shoulder.

I have notified ACA.
