Campcation Photo Contest

New Jersery Campground Owners & Outdoor Lodging Association (NJOCA) is excited to announce their 2020 New Jersey Campcation Photo Contest. Campers are invited to take photos of their 2020 New Jersey camping experience and submit the photos to NJCOA. Entries will be accepted via email ( between August 1 - October 31, 2020.

Joann DelVescio, Executive Director of NJCOA, said "the contest is designed to engage the camper to share their New Jersey camping experience with us via a photograph. 2020 has been a trying year for everyone and we thought this would be a great way to get campers thinking about what they love and enjoy most about camping in New Jersey." She continued to say they hope to use the photograph in the 2021 New Jersey Campground & Outdoor Lodging Vacation Guide, if space allows. However, Joann did state they plan to use the winning photograph on their website, social media outlets, and other advertising mediums.

The rules are simple, your photograph must be taken in a New Jersey campground during 2020 and you must be an amateur photographer. More information about the contest along with the submission form, rules, and model release form may be found here.

Due to the changing times many more people are giving camping a try and taking 'campcations' instead of traditional vacations. A campcation is heading out into the wide-open road and exploring all New Jersey has to offer while staying in your personal hotel room on wheels. The best part of a New Jersey campcation is camping at the unique campgrounds spread throughout the state. Campgrounds in New Jersey offer plenty of room for vacationers to spread out and enjoy the great outdoors. Kids can easily explore the campground on foot or bike or head to the sports courts all while remaining close to their campsite. For those who do not own an RV, they can easily rent one or rent a unique outdoor lodging accommodation available at most New Jersey campgrounds. New Jersey campgrounds offer tepees, treehouses, retro campers, A-frames, cabins (rustic to deluxe), yurts, or safari tents. Some rental options include individual bedrooms, kitchenettes, bathrooms, and other modern amenities like TV's or gas fireplaces.

Traveling in your RV (or renting an RV) is great way to see the attractions throughout New Jersey while staying close to home. You can enjoy so much within a 2-hour drive of your home, the beaches and boardwalks along the Jersey shore when camping in a variety of the regions. If you want to hit the water, boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or looking for hiking or biking trails New Jersey is the spot for you. All these activities can be found throughout the state; however, the Skylands Region allows you to hike part of the Appalachian Trail. New Jersey towns offer a unique shop experience and a many area have a nice selection of outlet malls. Jersey Fresh produce can be found all over the state at the many farm stands or farmers markets. Jersey offers some of the best produce, perfect for cooking over the campfire. There are a considerable number of historic sites, from early American to WWII, to see all through the state along with an array of lighthouses that line the coast.

Just ask your New Jersey campground host where the best restaurants are, and you will not be disappointed with the vast selection of eateries. New Jersey wineries and breweries that are scattered throughout the state and are a must visit.
