Camp Glen Gray is a weekend camping facility located on the border of the towns of Oakland and Mahwah in New Jersey's Bergen County, just off of State Routes 202 and 208 and Interstate Route 287. Convenient to all of North Jersey, it is only 45 minutes by car from NY City. It was originally developed as a Boy Scout camp in 1917 and is named after one of its founders, Frank F. Gray.
In January of 2002, the camp took on a new role. Hundreds of wooded acres of the Ramapo Mountains became the newest part of Bergen County's park system. Nestled among thousand's of acres of county and state park lands, there's never a lack of things to do and see. Besides hiking trails, there is a lake to fish in (16 years old and over requires a NJ Fishing License). Rent a boat and explore the lake. Cabins, lean-tos and tent sites make wonderful places in which to camp, and there's lots of wonderful scenery to enjoy. A sports field, campfire ring and an amphitheater provide places to hold outdoor events. A Dining Hall (with a kitchen) may be used for indoor events and meals. Bathroom facilities at campsites consist of latrines in keeping with the camp's rustic mode. Toilets (in warm weather) are located off the parking lot.
In the winter, wood stoves in the cabins will keep you warm. Many of the cabins also have electricity. In warmer weather, play sports and games in Mary Post field.
The camp is managed by the Friends of Glen Gray for the Bergen County Department of Parks.
|Camp Glen Gray is a weekend campground facility. However, day visitors are permitted only if they are coming to participate in a camp or group sponsored weekend event. This would include such events as a Klondike Derby, a Merit Badge Fair or a weekend camp-out by any group. The day visitors must check in at the Camp Office and pay a $4.00 per person day use fee, regardless of age. They must also check out at the Camp Office when leaving camp. NO PETS OR ALCOHOL ARE PERMITTED IN CAMP!!!|
When you arrive at camp, the campmaster helps you enjoy your stay even more.
