Channel Your Inner Pioneer When You Spend The Night At This Covered Wagon Campground In New Jersey
Do you remember playing the vintage video game Oregon Trail for hours at a time, trying to guide your wagon train across the most treacherous mountain passes and open plains in the country? Well, now you can bring your family to relive your pioneer dreams… except in New Jersey, far from any trails, and without any hardship. Spend a night camping in a Conestoga Wagon and you’ll have a blast recreating the past!
Great Divide Campground is a unique spot that will make you feel like you've traveled miles and miles away from the Garden State.
It's located in a rural part of Sussex County, but still easily accessible from Route 206 and I-80.
Their wide-open and shaded lots make for an ideal spot to pitch a tent, and the fire rings and picnic tables at each site make it easy to settle in and feel at home.
There is plenty to do at Great Divide, and whether you choose to go for a dip in the pool...
...or paddle out on the water, you're sure to find a fun way to cool off from the hot summer sun!
Now, if you're really up for a fun adventure, you'll want to rent one of their Conestoga wagons sites.
Channel your inner pioneer and think about what life would be like if you had to cross the country in one of these primitive RVs. Luckily, at Great Divide, you won't be trekking across the Sawtooths or hoping to cross South Pass!
Instead, you can enjoy the comforts of this restored wagon along with the modern amenities of the Great Divide Campground. Start a fire and sit around wondering who would have been the first in your group to succumb to dysentery or cholera if you actually had to make the treacherous wagon train treks of the 1800s.
When the sun goes down and the stars come out, retire to a comfortable bedroom within the wagon...
... and send the kids to their own bunks, too! Maybe remind me them how lucky they are that they don't have to hunt their own bison for dinner each night, too!
