Philly in the summer has many things: fireworks (still, even after the Fourth of July, apparently), lots of live music, great food trucks, and a lively festival scene.
But we get it: sometimes you just need to get away for a night or two.
And luckily, Pennsylvania and New Jersey have plenty of options for some great camping in their state parks. There are spots to bring pets, do some great bird watching, hike and bike, fish, and kayak, all while ending the day around a campfire or lounging in a tent.
This summer we’ve put together the best camping sites the general Philly-area has to offer. If you’re not tent-inclined, fine! There are plenty of lean-tos, cabins, or otherwise. If you want to be around people or you want to be secluded, there are great options for you. Need to take 50 friends and family members on a camping trip? The Philly area has you covered.
Behold: the 9 best spots to camp, all within a one-hour drive of the city.
