WORTHINGTON STATE FOREST

State Park Service Overnight Facilities Update

Effective Monday, March 22, primitive campsites, group campsites and additional tent/trailer campsites will be made available for reservations for the period starting April 1 through December 15. 

In addition, reservations continue to be accepted for family tent and trailer campsites, RV sites and wilderness campsites at all areas through December 15. Please note some camping areas will continue to have regularly scheduled seasonal closures in place. 

Cabins, shelters, and lean-tos remain closed at this time. We look forward to the continued phased reopening of additional overnight facilities.

 Please be aware that the State Park Service has many primitive restrooms that do not have running water. Remember to bring your own hand sanitizer and other supplies to disinfect commonly touched surfaces.

Worthington State Forest was established in 1954 after the State of New Jersey purchased land from the Charles Campbell Worthington family. Located in Warren County in northwest New Jersey, Worthington State Forest is comprised of more than 6,400 acres and offers various recreational activities. While camping along the scenic Delaware River is one of the most popular attractions, there are also several hikes within the park worth noting. The more than 26 miles of hiking trails include the hike to Sunfish Pond, one of New Jersey's 7 natural wonders. Millions of years in the making, the pond was carved out by glacial forces during the last ice age and is one of fourteen rock-basin lakes between the Delaware Water Gap and the end of the Kittatinny Ridge. Visitors may also hike to the top of Mt. Tammany to experience a 360 degree view of the Delaware Water Gap.
