Wondering what to do in South Jersey when its the weekend. Wow! Take some time and really plan a trip. There is so much to do it is overwhelming. With all the shows down the Casinos and all the events inland it is really hard to decide. For me it is not as difficult because I like the outdoors. So if you are interested in hiking, canoeing, kayaking then there are plenty of places all over. My favorite is the Winding River Campground in Weymouth. Winding River Campground 6752 Weymouth Road Mays Landing, NJ 08330 (609) 625-3191 GPS Coordinates: 39.51626, -74.78147
Travel like you are going to Mays Landing and then take Weymouth Road.
It is a great place to take the kids because the streams are just big enough and fun-filled for them as many other kids are there as well. There is a rest area middle of the way where the outfitter has a concession stand, volleyball, horse shoes and plenty of picnic tables. Then at the end of the trip, you put your canoe on the truck and then hike back. It is really close so no worries there; the drive is in the beginning, so at the end you are close to the entrance.
We typically go swimming in the pool. Then we venture to our site. While camping here it has all the amenities of camping areas and the stream for all the fun. Then next day we take tubes down and I usually take a kayak to ensure the safety of everyone. What a weekend, South Jersey is beautiful. The scenery is really tranquil and beautiful. http://www.aguidetosouthjersey.com
