Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation, Allamuchy-Waterloo Rd, Stanhope, NJ 07874

Please No Pets on Reservation Property

Mt. Allamuchy lies on the south side of Allamuchy Mountain and is bordered on the west by Deer Park and to the south by Stephens State Park. Ten miles northeast of the camp you'll find Kittatinny State Park; site of the H2H Bulldog race. The reservation's 880 acres offer an escape from the hustle and bustle! The 12+ miles of trails on site offer something for every rider and at the border lead you into the renowned Allamuchy North trail network. There are two large lakes that offer a spot for a refreshing dip, relaxing canoe ride, or a crack at landing a monster largemouth Bass. The reservation has a full service dining hall serving meals throughout the weekend and hot modern showers to wash away a day's worth of fun on the trails.

The covered picnic tables

Several grills are available in each camping area


Plenty of campsites in a variety of locations are available to tent campers. Several camping areas are spread around the property which offer your group an opportunity to either be secluded in your own camping area, or join in with other campers in a larger campsite. All areas are reachable by car for equipment drop off and are all within walking (biking) distance to all attractions.

Each camping area contains 6-12 tent platforms built for canvas style tents, but they offer an excellent weather barrier for setting up a standard tent.

Each camping area has a common large fire pit, and a covered area with two picnic tables.

There are also several BBQ grills in each camping area, don't forget your charcoal!


The cabins are group cabins. Meaning they are a large room with beds around the walls. They sleep from 12-20 people. They are rustic and include no amenities. They have electricity. You must provide your own bedding.


The waterfront will be open Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 for swimming. Lifeguard on premise.


Restrooms and Showers

Brand new climate controlled bathrooms and showers were installed last season at the Scout Camp. The showers and bathroom are conveniently located and each camping area is also equipped with it's own latrine and sink.


The family cabins are equipped with electrical outlets. Friendly cabin users will likely allow you access to charge your appliances or headlamps for night riding. Electrical outlets are also available in the mess hall and in the restroom facilities.


After a long day in the saddle grab some grub lakeside at the Somers Dining Hall. The camp dining hall will be open for meals starting at noon on Friday and ending at 2pm on Sunday. There will be a variety of items on the menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
