Lumberton lies just a short distance from the New Jersey Turnpike and is a great place to stay when you rent an RV in New Jersey. The town gets its name from the vast forests that once covered the central section of the state and was used to build many of the homes and businesses in the earlier days of Philadelphia. Today, most of the residents of Lumberton make their living in the Philly area, with the town serving as a bedroom community for the metro. If you’re interested in visiting the Philadelphia area from Lumberton, it’s best to use the NJ Transit bus system; it can be a challenge to find parking for your rig in the city as much of it was laid out before the advent of the automobile.
However, most visitors come to Lumberton not for the amenities of the big city, but the quiet suburban life of central New Jersey. Small towns and farms are common sights in this part of the state, and when you book an RV in Lumberton, you can count on a slower pace.
As one of the most densely populated states in the nation, New Jersey isn’t exactly well known for its nature. However, there are quite a few great parks to explore, and many of them are near Lumberton. One of the most interesting ones contains the Smithville Mansion and is centered on the North Branch of Rancocas Creek. You can take a guided tour of the historic home of industrialist Hezekiah Smith, but many just come to enjoy the colorful gardens outside the main building.
Rancocas State Park is another favorite for outdoor lovers visiting The Garden State as the trails there are relatively undeveloped, and you actually feel like you’re inside a forest, despite being quite close to an urban area. One of the more popular loop trails extends close to five miles and visits a picturesque pond.
For an afternoon with the family, you can’t beat Laurel Acres Park. The green space is centered on a large hill, Mount Laurel, which is quite popular for sledding during the winter months. In the summer, visitors flock to the park for afternoon picnics, but there’s also a great dog park there too if you’re traveling with a four-legged companion.
There aren't a lot of RV park and campground options in New Jersey. Dedicated RV parks are few and far between so the majority of your options will be campgrounds with a few amenities. Batona Campground on the north end of Wharton State Forest is one of the closest options when you get a motorhome rental in Lumberton; sites have drinkable water and toilets. Fortunately, there is some excellent hiking nearby, so consider this one if you’re into outdoor adventure.
There are also some sites in the Brendan T. Byrne State Forest that are a little more upscale. There you’ll have access to laundry facilities in addition to showers and toilets, but still no hookups for your travel trailer rental from Lumberton. The forest has 25 miles of marked trails to explore including the Mount Misery and Batona Trail that are quite popular with locals.
If you prefer to stay in a full-service RV park and don’t mind staying farther from Lumberton, there is the Philadelphia South/Clarksboro KOA just outside of Philadelphia. It’s got quite a few more amenities than the rustic campgrounds closer to town like full hookups, a swimming pool, and a dog park. If you’re traveling with the family when you get a camper rental in Lumberton, this might be a place to consider.
Due to the dense cityscapes around Philadelphia, you’re never far away from some great attractions. In Philly proper, there is the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art with its iconic steps featured in the film Rocky. But there’s also plenty to do without ever crossing the Delaware River into Pennsylvania.
While Eastern State Prison in Philadelphia gets most of the attention from penitentiary explorers thanks to its rumors of being haunted, the Burlington County Prison Museum is a much closer and less crowded option if you’re interested in the subject. Built on the outskirts of Mount Holly, this historic prison was designed by the same architect who created Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate. An audio tour is available to help you imagine what it was liked to be locked up in this grim facility as you leisurely tour the cells.
If you’re bringing the kids along on the Lumberton campervan rental vacation, you’ll probably want to plan a trip to Diggerland, a construction-themed park on the outskirts of West Berlin. You and the little ones can operate real big rig construction equipment and see how major earthworks projects get done. This has to be one of the most unique theme parks on the Eastern seaboard. For more hands-on experiences though, bring the kids to the Garden State Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill where every exhibit is expected to be touched.
