The Great Outdoors

Port Republic Wildlife Management Area is right across the highway from Chestnut Lake RV Campground. With a mixture of natural habitats protected in this expanse, there is something for everybody at Port Republic WMA. You can enjoy the salt marshes, the pine and oak forests, or hiking along the coastal riverways. Given the assortment of protected habitats, there is a wide variety of wildlife to see while you're here. Home to bald eagles, river otters, foxes, and a seemingly endless array of amphibians, there are sure to be some exciting sightings for wildlife enthusiasts.A little farther up the road is the Bass River State Forest in Tuckerton, New Jersey. The first officially sanctioned state forest in the state of New Jersey, Bass River continues to protect the Pine Barrens. You can explore the loop trail that winds through the Absegami Natural Area for a quick tour of the region. If you want to visit something truly unique, head to the pygmy forest in the West Pine Plains Natural Area. This forest is filled with mature oak and pine trees, but due to the soil conditions, the trees do not grow higher than about four feet tall. You can feel like a giant as you walk among one of the world’s most expansive stunted forests.To escape from the modern world, Wharton State Forest is the place to go. The largest swath of land within the New Jersey State Park System, Wharton State Forest has something for everyone. You can head out on the trails and see if you can catch a glimpse of a red-tailed hawk, white-tailed deer, river otter, or some of the many songbirds that call the forest home. Or instead, you can launch a boat into the Mullica River and enjoy the forest from a different viewpoint. Or, if you’re a lover of history, you can head to the preserved Atsion Mansion to see a preserved yet empty estate. Consider a stop at Batsto Village where you can learn about the ironwork and glassmaking that took place at this location over 200 years ago.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
