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.

Two wolves with heads together

Lakota Wolf Preserve

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. 

While camping here you can walk around the outside of the preserve during the day when they are not doing a tour. To go on a tour you must book tickets in advance from their website at Tours are limited and tickets, especially on weekends, do often sell out weeks ahead of time. 

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.

Hike right from your campsite

Direct hiking access to Worthington State Forest and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area means you never need to worry about finding parking to hike to the top of Mt Tammany or the Appalachian  Trail.

With hiking destinations and loops both on our property and in the adjacent public land including Sunfish Pond and the point of the Water Gap, you can plan as long or as short of a hike you want.
