Book a winter getaway at one of the best cabin rentals in NJ
Philadelphia South / Clarksboro KOA
Located just 20 minutes from Philadelphia, this campground offers year-round four cabin types—from four to eight people. The options range from a stripped-down camping cabin with three beds and a porch to a deluxe place with bedrooms, bathrooms, a partial kitchen, and a patio. At night, warm up by the community fire pit while your kiddos make s’mores—you can pick up the kits, firewood, and essentials at the onsite store.
117 Timberlane Rd., Clarksboro, NJ 08020
Harmony Ridge Farm and Campground
If your family enjoys hiking, this is the place to be. Located in the Kittatinny Mountains, you can access the Appalachian Trail and the Stokes State Forest—or walk around the 160-acre campground. There’s also an onsite outdoor hockey rink, or you can go cross-country skiing or snowmobiling nearby. Later, take a well-deserved break by the lounge fireplace. Cabins are available for rent year-round, although certain exceptions exist during winter.
23 Risdon Drive, Branchville, NJ 07826
Beach Plum Farm Cottages
Staying on a farm might be just the vacation the fam remembers forever. And Beach Plum’s luxe cottages and barns offer a respite from the world—chances are, you will never want to leave. Ask to stock your refrigerator with farm-fresh meats and produce upon arrival and cook hearty farm-to-table meals with the kids. Spend your days sitting by the fire—each cottage has a roaring fireplace inside and a firepit outside. When you’re ready to move, the whole family will love biking around the 62-acre working farm, where you can stop to feed the chickens, meander down the Woodland Marsh Trail, and pop into the Farm Market and Kitchen for a fresh sandwich and shopping.
140 Stevens Street, West Cape May, NJ 08204
Chips Folly Family Campground
Get in touch with nature at this campground in the Pine Barrens and on the Wading River. Spend your day walking on a nature trail, challenge your kiddos to a friendly competition in the game room, and then head to the store to stock up on snacks and anything else you might need during your stay. And at the end of the day, relax in one of their cozy cabins—most have fireplaces perfect for snuggling up on a cold winter night.
