Our camp is located on a rural road in north western New Jersey. The
only other major development on the acces road to our camp is an historical
village. but during the 70's they decided to cut our camp into two pieces. The
camp has wonderful route 80 going through it. The main side of our camp is
located on the side of the highway. At the rifle range if you fire in the wrong
direction you may even hit a car.
The next problem is that their is a huge concert field down the road
from the camp. It is only used a few times. But they have used it for the last
few years for Lallopaloza(?). They have so many people attend it they have to
close the road near our camp to allow people to walk to the concert because
parking is to far away. Other wise it is a great camp.
