Camping close to kid-friendly MTB trails?

We are looking to go camping with the kids on the July 29-31 weekend. In the past few years, we've been to Swartswood state park, which was great but if I remember correctly doesn't have many MTB trails.

Does anyone have suggestions for a camping place that's not too far from Warren (1-3 hours away), that has beach/lake access but that also has some easy (kid-friendly) MTB trails.

If you do, please let me know!!

Thanks.

Off the top of my head:

Allaire and wawayanda have group camping sites.

Lewis Morris
Stephens state park
KVSP - best bet probably with rail trails too

Jim Thorpe?

Done! Can't recommend a better place and just in the 3 hour mark. Hell may even join if schedule is clear.

Yeah we are free and clear!
And now booked at site 28, guess I should ride the bike once or twice before going.
@Kirt head to your family's that weekend so we can have a moosic proper.

All the primitive camping sites are walk-in only... and with the kids we prefer car camping! I think we'll probably book something close to you! What date did you guys book (Seems like site 28 is still available on July 29-31)?

They are good sites close to pool shower and lake.

BUMP...

Looks like there are still some spots available for that weekend if anyone else wants to join us... @1sh0t1b33r @soundz

We will have the kids with us but there seem to be a lot of good trails out there...

This month doesn't look good for me. The house is going up for sale and getting rid of all the junk I've accumulated is daunting. I may decide to set the whole thing on fire.

This is a really great campground, don't miss a chance to hang out with some hall of fame mtbnjer's. Good riding at and surrounding the park. We are super stoked!

@Dominique There's a campground at Nox. It's on the other side of the lake from the MTB trails. And yes, theres a nice beach and a big lake.

*edit* Just noticed this post was from May.

LOL - Wine Spritzers. Not one of my prouder moments. What were we thinking?
I'll run it by my better half. I could really use a weekend in which I am not working...
