Nurse Gail Goes Camping – Stokes State Forest, NJ – Cabin 4

I’ve been to Stokes State Forest in New Jersey twice in the past few years and both times exceeded my expectations.  During my first solo visit in 2014, I stayed in a lean-to with no electricity and no running water (i.e. no toilet).  I felt a tad bit vulnerable so, in 2017, I stepped up to a cabin and brought a friend.

There are 13 cabins available that cost around $70 per night (as a non-New Jersey resident). Cabins have electricity, running hot/cold water, full-size refrigerator, stove/oven, indoor potbelly wood burning stove, bathroom with a sink and toilet (no shower), and 4 twin beds. I stayed in Cabin #4 with a lake view and a path to the water. Lake Ocquittunk is stocked with trout and I purchased a 3-day New Jersey fishing license online, grabbed a life vest and a small cooler from my local Salvation Army, bought a $25 raft (technically an “aquatic toy”) with a $9 fishing pole on Amazon.com, and spent some time “fishing.”

If you are concerned about ticks at Stokes, there were quite a few, and I wrote about it HERE.
