Kymers Campground, Branchville, NJ

The wife and I spent the weekend here and really fell in love with it. We chose a back in site along a very active stream and the sound of the stream was like music to my ears. Our 1 year old Springer just loved it as well.

It's a fairly large park with very generous lots which is a bit uncommon in NJ. The lots are mostly wooded and shaded so satellite reception may be an issue, the cable included about a dozen or so stations so it was adequate for our purpose. The Wi-Fi was only available near the office which was a good thing in that it kept me off the computer for the most part but if you need it it can be an issue. The loop from our lot all the way around the park was over a mile and perfect for a nice morning and afternoon walk with the dog. Between the walks and the playing in the stream our puppy has been sleeping for the last few hours!

At $32.00 for the night for a 30 amp site with water but no sewer and $8.00 for over night guests was acceptable for what they offer in peace and quiet. We booked another weekend at the end of May so I'll see how it is during the "on" season.

If anyone was looking for a nice campground in the area you might want to give them a try.

I have no affiliation what so ever with this campground.

Hey Al,

We'll be the Friday the 14th through that Sunday and again in August on Friday the 13th through the following Sunday.

I really like this place and if it's as nice during the on season I'll be spending a lot more this season.

Our site is #18 on the stream. By all means, drop by.

Hey Don,

Yeah when I was working I remember how hard it was to try and work in all the things you want to do with the little time you have to do it in!

Although I'm looking foreword to it, time seems to be passing by all too fast anymore. I'm thankful for what I have and that I'm able to enjoy my life as much as I do at this point in my life. I just couldn't see waiting until I retired to start enjoying life.

Thanks for the words of encouragement .

Hey there Al, We'll be there but we are planning on taking the bike out for a lunch ride so the earlier you can drop by the better. Last time we stayed in site #18 and loved it so that's where we'll be this weekend as well.

I really loved this place so I'm hoping that as the camping season starts to pick up that the atmosphere doesn't change for the worse as sometimes happens to places when the get crowded.

I'll have coffee ready!

Same here Al, good meeting another Nor-Easter group member. I'm glad to hear you like Kymers, for only our second visit we're just as happy as we were the first time around. Having the shade from the trees and the stream for Murphy really make for an enjoyable weekend.

The bike ride really went well as well!
