    There's also a paddling section of the forum for donating members. Kayak Karl is a piney who can tell you some good paddles down there.

    In campsite 1 off to the left of the boat launch there is a handy little annex with trees placed perfectly for 3 hammocks.

    Does anybody know which sites are good at Godfreys Bridge or Hawkins Bridge? Preferably a spot on the water. I heard they cut down a ton of trees at Hawkins Bridge within the past couple years...

    When I went to Godfrey, tree selection was pretty dismal. It was raining so I cut out after only going through about half the sites. Very discouraging. I suspect this is all the work of ReserveAmerica 'cause they whacked a bunch of trees at Lower Forge and Mullica River as well about the time the ReserveAmerica came online. Oh, and they put fire rings at every site.

    I kinda hate ReserveAmerica myself. It wouldn't even let me book two sites (one for my group, and another for friends of ours) without charging me the $9.25 "reservation fee" twice! It's a total racket.

    Godfreys was nearly all booked up so I decided to go with a Hawkins Bridge campsite. Basically picked two random sites there and we'll see how they are. If they won't work hopefully the next site over will be empty to use and have more trees.

    Goshen Pond Site #16 is no longer a decent hanging spot.

    It used to be one of my favorites but a few trees were cut down.

    Now it will hold 2 hangers at most and the spots are right up by the road and directly across from the group site.

    I actually had to park my truck next to the hammock to block the headlights of traffic passing thru camp heading back into the forest. It's a favorite of Jeeps and Dirt bikers who are not familiar with the are and the hundreds of other options to get back to that section of the woods.
    Have sherpas, will travel...

    That stinks. Goshen used to be so nice. Lots of frogs out there in the summer!
    The Pine Barrens Tree frog requires the acidic waters of Atlantic white-cedar swamps and bogs in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. They will typically call from trees standing in or near water, and will return to a hammock in the evening.
