Need help locating a park near Basking Ridge NJ

We have wedding to attend in Basking Ridge, NJ in summer 2023.

I cannot find anything nearby that would fit our needs.

Class A 38í with toad. Prefer FHU but at least need electric if there is water/dump available.

Ideas?

Thee are a handful of public camp grounds west of Basking Ridge, but I know nothing about them. Closest we have stayed is Driftstone campground in the Delaware Watergap between Easton and Stroudsburg PA in 2019 .That is going a least a good hour from Basking Ridge. Driftstone was really nice. Full hook ups.

One we checked out once but did not stay at is Three Brooks. Very family oriented with lots of children.Too many for aging empty nesters like us It is in NJ closer to Baskin Ridge.

Thank you!

That looks like it will work for us.

I know this is maybe a done deal for you by now but I thought I would chime in in favor of Mahlon Dickerson. Used to live in that area and have been back several times to visit in our 40’ class A. It is very nice. Sites are paved, water and electric, dump station. Water is not at site but it is near site and the campground supplies hoses. Nicely wooded (forget about satellite reception) with a couple of trails, near enough to groceries, WalMart, etc. but also very quiet.
Reserve as early as you possibly can. Sites fill up fast and weekend dates can be hard to come by. Bring leveling boards. We’ve stayed on Sites 7 and 14, 14 is a bit more level. Campground roads well-maintained and easily navigable. Pay attention to site length, not all will hold a larger rig but the info on the web is reliable as to what will fit where. If anyone in your group is a smoker, be aware that smoking is prohibited anywhere in the park, including on your site. Expect about an hour commute to B’ville and some congestion but it’s a straight shot down 15 to 80 to 287. Enjoy your stay!

We are going to stay there summer 2023 hopefully. The reservations donít open for 2023 until January.
