In sunny and fun South Jersey, the town of Swedesboro may have had its beginnings with Swedish immigration and the establishment of New Sweden way back in the 1600s, but today you will find a melting pot of various cultures. The city is just a short drive away from the urban centers of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware. There is no shortage of opportunity for cultural and urban exploration. This agricultural town turned commuter city also serves as the perfect middle ground to explore the natural wonders of the Delaware Bay region when you rent an RV.
If you want to explore the area like a local, you can jump onto one of the NJ Transit buses. With bus lines taking you into Philadelphia as well as around the local area, you can leave your RV rental in Swedesboro.
When you book an RV in Gloucester County, you will be able to relax on the Jersey Shore, hike through the sand plains and pine forests, and live it up in the City of Brotherly Love all in one weekend. With so many options at your feet, you will understand why New Jersey is one of the most densely populated states in the country.
If you want to try your luck at some wildlife viewing in South Jersey, then head to the Glassboro Wildlife Management Area in Clayton, New Jersey. Here, you may be able to see migratory birds as they make their journey, local birds who call the area home, and maybe even a deer or two. You can also head out on the maintained trails and explore the forest. The place is a well-kept secret, so chances are it won’t be too crowded when you go.
Just a quick drive to the east is the Wharton State Forest in Washington, New Jersey. The largest state forest in New Jersey, Wharton State Forest has plenty of opportunities for exploring and outdoor recreation. If you want to “get lost” in the forest, you can head out on one of the many hiking trails that cut through the park. If you’d rather get a better understanding of the waterways, you can get your hands on a canoe or kayak and let the waters whisk you away. If you’re looking to learn a little bit more about the history of the area, Wharton State Forest is also home to the Batsto Village historic site, an industrial center from the mid-18th to mid-19th century.
Just over the border into Pennsylvania is the Ridley Creek State Park near Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. At Ridley Creek, you can enjoy the peace and zen atmosphere created by a babbling brook as it makes its way through a lush woodland landscape. You can hike and follow the creek down through the forest, or instead, explore deeper in the woods. If you find yourself traveling to the area in the winter, you can strap some cross-country skis to your feet and head out on the snow-covered hiking trails.
When you choose to rent an RV in Swedesboro, you are going to need to find a place or two where you can spend the night. Luckily enough, there are plenty of places around town worth considering.
Just a short drive to the northeast of town is the Philadelphia South/Clarksboro KOA. At the KOA, guests will have access to full hookups, restroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, and Wi-Fi. Guests will also have access to an on-site convenience store and a fishing pond.

When you’re spending time in the never dull South Jersey, be sure to set aside some extra time to explore the vibrant local community. There is so much to see and do in the Philadelphia-Wilmington-Southern Jersey area, that you are sure to never have a dull moment.
If you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon, spend some time at one of the local wineries. You can join a tour, a tasting, or even see if there are any special events taking place. Regardless, you are sure to enjoy the scenic hills covered in vineyards.
Just over the state line into Delaware is The Delaware Contemporary, an art museum. Here, you can see all sorts of contemporary art throughout the many gallery spaces. Not only that, but the museum hosts several art classes that are open to drop-in students for the day if you want to brush up on your skills.
Also just over the border into Delaware is the Brandywine Zoo. At Brandywine, you can see a variety of animals, such as red pandas, servals, bald eagles, and so much more. With so many animals to see and special events to partake in, Brandywine Zoo is a great way to spend the day.
When you rent an RV in South Jersey, there is one local delicacy that you need to try that you can find at almost any classic New Jersey diner. Treat yourself to a breakfast sandwich with pork roll. The salty cross between ham and bacon served with an egg and cheese is always a hearty way to start your day. When you inevitably need to find somewhere to refuel and restock your Swedesboro RV rental by owner, you will have plenty of options to choose from in town.
