The Beautiful Restaurant Tucked Away In A New Jersey Forest Most People Don’t Know About

There aren’t too many remote restaurants in the densely populated Garden State, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area consists of 70,000 forested acres across two states – New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Paradise for outdoor lovers, the protected lands offer everything from waterfalls to wildlife, including coyote, fox and deer. New Jersey’s portion of the park is even home to a well-preserved ghost town. While visiting, you’ll truly feel miles away from civilization.

For the most part, you will be. However, there’s an incredible restaurant here offering fine dining in a rustic setting. It’s the only dining option in the immediate area and, lucky for us, it’s a good one. If fact, good isn’t even a strong enough word to describe this wonderful place.

You can find the Walpack Inn at 7 National Park Service Road 615, Walpack Township.
