This summer is not a summer like most others. Gathering with others is more challenging than usual, as is escaping the everyday to get out of town, see loved ones and break up routine.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to break up routine and get a beautiful change of scenery right here in the Garden State. If you’re looking to go away with friends, loved ones and others but still want to maintain social distance, consider visiting one of the many private and public campgrounds that are open this summer — it’s a great way to accomplish your goals without traveling far.

Visit Allaire State Park, Bass River State Forest, Belleplain State Forest, Cheesequake State Park, High Point State Park, Spruce Run Recreation Area, Stokes State Forest, Swartswood State Park, Wharton State Forest or Worthington State Forest, where family tent and trailer campsites are open and available for a getaway into nature and a way to reset before the fall. apartments located near Cheesequake include rentals at Woodhaven Terrace, located in Old Bridge.
