I got drawn for a Zone 20 tag and want to find a place to pitch a tent before hunting since I will have to travel from North Jersey. Does anyone know of a place down there that allows tent camping? Or would someone on the thread have a piece of land they'd allow me to sleep on? I'm hoping for something free but will pay if I need to.

Try Parvin state park? https://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/parvin.html

They even have hunting but it looks like it's zone 21 not 20. But probably closest least expensive option to zone 20 unless you stay at a truck stop.


Campsites: 56 tent and trailer sites with fire rings, picnic tables, lantern hooks and a playground available. Six people and two vehicles per site. Flush toilets, showers, and laundry facilities are within walking distance. Facilities available for people with disabilities. Trailer sanitary station. Located on the south shore of Parvin Lake. Open April 1 to October 31. Fee: NJ Residents: $20 per night; Non Residents: $25 per night.

Thanks, deadeye. I saw that place in my own research and I think you're right it may be my best option. Definitely would work. Still, I have a hard time paying for a campsite. I grew up near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and just have it stuck in my head I aught to be able to find somewhere to camp for free, haha.

Not at all opposed to paying $20/night. Just figured I would see if there's a free resource or a friendly landowner out there. I actually found a person willing to let me camp in his yard on Facebook, and he lives right in the thick of Zone 20.

It's one thing to have the perfect place to pitch a tent but having the right equipment is just as necessary... any advise or thoughts about the Abco Tech Portable Cabana tent? I read a review on the article called Best Pop Up Tents. Your input will definitely help! cheers fellas:)
