Welcome to Wharton, New Jersey, a borough of Morris County. The community is just south of Picatinny Arsenal, an important army research and development center. Apart from its proximity to this military hub, Wharton allures many with its parks and green spaces. Also, like many areas in the northeastern United States, Wharton is a city filled with history and is home to several historical sites. Although rich with history, Wharton is a suburb of buzzing metropolises like New York City. In fact, Wharton is just an hour's drive away from The Big Apple and the perfect place to rent an RV if you want to explore this big, iconic city without getting wrapped up in the chaos. But no matter why you’re visiting Wharton, there’s something exciting in store for you when you search for an RV in Morris County.

Discover Wharton

The Great Outdoors

When you book an RV rental in Wharton, you can experience the outdoors and a bit of New Jersey history all at once with a visit to Hugh Force Canal Park. The hike follows a portion of the Morris Canal, which combined the Hudson and Delaware Rivers. The canal first opened in 1831 and used 23 locks and 23 inclined planes to bring boats from sea level to Lake Hopatcong at 914 feet above sea level and then back down to sea level at the Delaware River. The canal was abandoned by 1924 with the introduction of railroads, but today, visitors can walk through the woods and along portions of the historic canal when you rent a motorhome in Wharton.

Hedden County Park in Randolph has two distinct sections stretching across 420 acres. The lake section provides access to the six-acre Hedden Pond and features a fishing deck, playground, and picnic pavilion. The other part of the park has hiking trails along Jackson Brook, a picnic area, and a multi-purpose field. Both sections of the park provide guests with access to ball fields, open green spaces, hiking trails, and restrooms. During the winter, if there is snow, the trails provide the ideal place for cross-country skiing. And be sure to pack your fishing gear as Heddon Pond, Wallace Brook, and Jackson Brook are all prime locations for the fish to bite.

It’s a great place to spend some time outdoors at any time of the year when you book a motorhome rental in Wharton.

Exploring the City

New Jersey was part of the original 13 colonies. As such, New Jersey, and many other states in the northeast United States have a colorful past. Watch history unfold before your eyes with a visit to Jockey Hollow in Morristown. It’s only 25 minutes from Wharton and was used as a winter encampment site for Washington’s armies during the American Revolution. Attracted to the heavily forested area on which Henry Wick’s cape cod style farm was built, during the winter of 1779-1780, Washington’s armies felled over 600 acres of Wick’s trees to build log cabins for soldiers. Today, the house is furnished to portray its usage as a general’s headquarters and is open to the public.
