Camp in an RV near Jackson and spend a day exploring the Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area, which sprawls across almost 13,000 acres on the southern edge of the RV park. It forms part of the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve, with large tracts of pitch pine, scrub oak, and white cedar swamps. There are numerous walking trails where you can escape for a bit of solitude while keeping your eyes peeled for myriad bird species that frequent the area along the Atlantic Flyway. Drive in the other direction from the campground, and you’ll arrive at the Assunpink Wildlife Management Area, which lies in the geographic heart of New Jersey. It provides a haven for wildlife and migrating birds while being a recreational hub for fishing, boating, kayaking, horseback riding, and hiking. Mountain biking is permitted during the summer months, with seasonal hunting also available. State-threatened long-eared owls inhabit the area, as do American woodcocks, brown thrashers, and pied-billed grebe.Camping at Timberland Lake Campground is also a good base for visiting Turkey Swamp Park, which lies around 15 minutes’ drive to the east. It encompasses the northern fringe of the Pine Barrens and the headwaters of numerous river and creek systems where boating and fishing are also possible. Bass, bluegill, and catfish can all be caught in the 17-acre lake, with canoeing and paddle boating among the other recreational pursuits. Around eight miles of trails also wind through the park while the lake freezes over for ice-skating during the winter months.
