About 35 minutes from Atlantic City, you’ll find Bass River State Forest, 29 acres of pine and oak trees surrounding Lake Absegami. The campground is just off of Garden State Parkway, making it easy to get to beaches both to the north and south. In fact, Long Beach Island is also just 30 minutes away.
If you’re looking to camp simply and surrounded by nature while still having quick access to both Atlantic City and Long Beach Island, Bass River State Forest is ideal. It’s a great park for outdoors enthusiasts as it offers great hiking, swimming, boating, canoeing, and even fishing and hunting. While amenities are basic, the area is extremely peaceful and the facilities clean.
