Camp Taylor Campground

The Genuine Outdoor Experience

Established in 1964, Camp Taylor has always been family owned and operated. Located in the beautiful mountains of Northwest New Jersey, the campground consists of 150 sites located on 400 acres of pristine forest.
Adjacent to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Appalachian Trail, our large wooded sites and miles of hiking trails offer a unique opportunity to reconnect with nature.

Whether you are a veteran outdoor enthusiast, or a first time camper, you will find what you are looking for in our primitive tent sites, electric and water sites, cabins, or onsite RV rentals.


Come visit us and enjoy camping as it was meant to be and
The Genuine Outdoor Experience.

We'd be pleased to be your hosts.

Now is also a great time to reserve a seasonal site for next year! Save on gas and time packing and setting up. A seasonal site means you can go camping anytime, at a moments notice. For more information, click the button below.

Two wolves with heads together

The Lakota Wolf Preserve, located on the campground, offers educational talks and photo opportunities of a lifetime. Reservations are required for their tours and photo shoots, please visit their website to reserve.  The howling of wolves, which can be heard while sitting at your campfire, reinforces the feeling of a remote wilderness setting, yet you are only a short drive from dozens of family attractions, restaurants and exciting shopping venues in the New Jersey Skylands and Pennsylvania Poconos. 

Attention Campers

Do not transport firewood!
In an effort to contain and eliminate infestations of the Asian Long Horned Beetle, Emerald Ash Borer, and other destructive insects and diseases, the NJDEP has placed a ban on the transport of firewood in NJ. Because of this threat to our forests, we can no longer allow campers to bring firewood from outside the campground. Anyone who does bring wood with them will not be allowed on the premises. No Refunds will be given. It is important that you inform all members of your party of this policy.

Our Mission Statement: 

Through daily business practices focusing on promoting and preserving our natural resources, we strive to provide camping families a place to experience & reconnect with nature through vacations that are both fun and environmentally responsible.
