You might check out CrazyGuyonaBike.com and search through the thousands of journals.  Someone probably has done it or come close.  Tailwinds, John

Did it 30 years ago but with a credit card and no tent.

It depends on your route. There is not one route to get between those two points.

I absolutely love the campground in Worthington State Forest on Old Mine Rd. (saw a bear cub when I was last there in 2018), but it's very hard to get into on the weekends, especially now that NJ state parks are only open at 50% for camping. Also, it's not that far of a ride from High Point. But the ride down the Jersey side from Port Jervis through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is fabulous. Note that it can get very cold up there this time of year. I did the Black Bear Century from Delaware Water Gap, PA. When we left the motel for the short ride to the start it was 34 degrees. That was in mid-October.

If you follow the river for a while there is Dogwood Haven in Upper Black Eddy, PA. Nice owner. Charges cyclists $10 or $15/night. Don't know how long his season runs. Probably at least through the end of October. It's a very quiet place occupied primarily by seasonal people. Site A is the best of the three tent sites.

There is Wharton State Forest, further south, NW of Hammonton, NJ. You need to check the official site since I think only one of the several campgrounds is open right now.

Further south still is Belleplain State Forest in Woodbine, NJ. It's a good place for a last night's stay. Cape May is a relatively easy ride from there. Work you way to Dennisville to SR 47 then cut through The Villas.

Pro tip: When you are asking about camping spots and you already have a route planned it is most helpful to let people know what that route is so they don't possibly waste time responding with suggestions that are not relevant to the planned route.  >:(

goes thru Wantage Twp.,Branchville Boro,cross's Sussex Branch Trail,down Rt.-206, Andover Twp., Stanhope ,Netcong, Mendam, Bernardsville, Warren Twp., Bound Brook and so on down to Cap May
The map set is called High Point Cape May Bike Route a tour guide for cyclists.

I rode from Point Pleasant Beach to Philly but stayed at the wife’s sisters place in the middle so no real help on camping.

I will say if you’re ever near Chairville NJ there’s an ice cream place there that is out of this world good.  Seriously.

John - Evergreen Dairy Bar, Chairville NJ.  Was a warmer day and the waffle cone was huge, full and delicious. Gets 5 stars from me and family.
