Fall Activities

Fall is the best time of the year for rustic tent camping�  No Heat, No Bugs and No Crowds!  Pack a few extra blankets and sweatshirts and enjoy the spectacular autumn colors in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DWGNRA).  The DWGNRA, located within a two hour drive of New York City and Philadelphia, offers 70,000 acres of public land for recreation.  Dingmans Campground is located right in the center of the DWGNRA, offering easy access to the Delaware River, nearby waterfalls, hiking trails and biking trails.

 Paddling on the Delaware River is unmatched for taking in the fall foliage.  Dingmans Campground continues to run our Canoe and Kayak livery service well into the peak autumn colors, until the water gets too cold for safe paddling (when the water temperature plus the air temperature are less than 100 F).  We have sent paddling trips out well into November in past seasons.  For more information about our river trips, please see the following link:

 There are numerous scenic loop trails and day hikes on modest terrain throughout the DWGNRA, offering endless opportunities to enjoy the fall foliage while hiking.  Hiking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) affords breathtaking views of the autumn colors along the Kittatinny Ridge in NJ, only 8 miles from Dingmans Campground.  For more information about hiking, please see the following link:

 The newly-constructed McDade Recreational Trail, stretching the length of the DWGNRA from north to south along the banks of the Delaware River from Milford, PA to Delaware Water Gap, PA, provides new opportunities to view the fall scenery by foot or by bike.  There are frequent access points along the McDade Trail, including Dingmans Campground.  For more information about biking, please see the following link:

 There are a dozen waterfall attractions within a short drive from Dingmans Campground.  Autumn brings the opportunity to enjoy these dramatic waterfalls amidst striking fall scenery.  For more information about the waterfall attractions in and around the DWGNRA, please see the following link:
