Camping Moderately Close to Diablo
I'm looking for somewhere to camp during the weekend of the US Open (25th-27th). I called Wawayanda, Stokes, and High Point parks. They are all booked as are most of the hotels around the area. Are there other places to camp besides the state parks? Thanks for any help.
I have been trying to get a site for the same weekend and it isn't looking good. A guy I work with is from vernon and said there are some private campgrounds up there too that you might be able to find through google. I think one might be called tall oaks.
if all else fails, crash in the parking lot overnight, and bring a sun shower
hell i got a big field/ clubhouse thing across the street from my house and im about 20 mins away. i dunno how the owners will feel with 10 tents up but screw it haha.
That's not a bad idea. I'm not sure how much they'd like camping in the parking lot though. I'll look into the Tall Oaks place.

ill look into it, but the only thing is theres no showers
Showers aren't a big deal. Just having anywhere to stay is the biggest problem at this point.

I found three that you may want to call, they are the closest private campgrounds to Vernon Valley:
Pleasant Acres Farm Campground - Sussex, NJ
Beaver Hill Campground - Sussex, NJ
Kymer's Camping Resort - Branchville, NJ
If they are booked, try
Panther Lake - Andover, NJ
Dingman's Campground, Dingman's Ferry, PA http://www.dingmanscampground.com/
Tall Oaks Campground - I found that one also, but it appears to be a "members only" campground
You may want to check out NY State as well:
Harrimen State Park, Bear Mountain, NY
Hope this helps - good luck with the search
