We are located in the rolling hills of bucolic Delaware Township, NJ. On our property, you are welcome to enjoy our creek and hiking trails that wind through our 5.6 wooded acres. Directly behind us is Dilt's Park - a 60 acre farm park with a playground, tennis and basketball courts, restroom facilities and trails perfect for running/biking/dog walking.
Washington Crossing State park is just about 10 minutes down the road, along the Delaware River. There are tubing and kayaking opportunities at multiple locations and parks along the river. There are several river towns within a short drive - the closest being Lambertville, NJ about 7 minutes away. Just across a pedestrian/car bridge is New Hope, PA in historic Bucks County. A little further, about 30 minutes north, is Frenchtown, NJ. All of our river towns abound with great restaurants/cafes, artisan shoppes, and local 'flair'. All are accessible from the Delaware River canal path - a 60+ mile, multi-use towpath that is level, wide and well-maintained.
Fall update: It's not just the leaves that are falling. It is a wooded site, and there are large hickory, oak and black walnut trees that have started dropping nuts. Good news: these are edible and delicious. Bad news: the acorns are not edible or delicious, they are all loud on your roof and will hurt if they fall on you.
Respect the land, respect the hosts, leave the site as you found it. Have fun!
15 amp electrical hook-up and potable water hose at site.
RV dump is located up the drive at the house - your discretion as to whether or not you can make it up steep drive. (We drive our 28' motor home up the driveway - but all rigs are different, and you know your's best...)
If you would like to hook up, suggested donation is $10/night.
If you would like to stay additional nights, please book through our listing on Hipcamp:

Somewhat windy, local road, narrow in places - though we navigate it with our 28' motorhome with no problem. Some parts of the road have low hanging tree branches.
It's a pretty big, fairly level spot. You can park in front of your rig or next to it.
Closed for the winter 10/7/19 through 5/1/2020. Have a great season, and we'll see you when it is warm again.
In order of proximity to our place:
The Sergeantsville Inn - historic origins that date back to George Washington. Also (most importantly, in my opinion) GREAT food, locally sourced from our awesome farmers, and served in inventive and delicious ways. Not cheap, but definitely worth it. If you want to really get a feel for the local 'culture' the tavern is a popular local hang out.
The Covered Bridge - Sergeantsville's claim to fame
The Delaware Canal Towpath - starts in Trenton, NJ and runs up to Frenchtown, NJ. Several walking bridges connect it with the Pennsylvania canal trail. So, you can do a full loop through NJ and PA.

Lambertville, NJ and Frenchtown, NJ
New Hope, Pa and Peddlers Village, PA
Bowman's Hill Tower and Wildflower Preserve
Ringing Rocks State Park, PA - a short hike to sonorous rocks in a large boulder field, waterfall at the end of the trail. Bring a hammer. Great hike for little ones - short, easy, and they get to bang rocks with hammers. :)
Philadelphia - about 45 minutes
Princeton, NJ - about 45 minutes
New York City - about 90 minutes
Delaware Water Gap Nat'l Rec Area - Appalachian trail, Dunnfield Creek, Kittatiny mountains. About 120 minutes.
Very secluded very nice spot. Both spots have a fire pit and some chairs and stuff. The host was very nice and accommodating. We ended up extending our stay one night.
A suggestion for anyone with clearance issues take Highway 202 into Stockton
The hosts put a a lot of time and effort into maintaining the sites and it shows! Great location! I would definitely recommend checking it out.
They couldn’t have been more welcoming! Loved the tiki torches lighting the way to our spot.
We arrive much later than planned so really just needed a place to rest our bones and head out in the AM!
Thanks you guys!!
This stay was awesome. We really enjoyed foraging for berries and catching fire flies. The hook up did not work for our AC on our 13k btu with everything else turned off. We ended up getting a generator. But,with all that aside, this was such an amazing stay and such a beautiful area!
Our friendly hosts greeted us at their lovely wooded site with small creek and nature trails. We safely negotiated the challenging entrance in our 40’ RV and had a quiet relaxing overnight stay.
Very accommodating hosts welcomed us on our way to and from (several days later)
a family wedding. Lovely quiet wooded site area next to small stream and with nearby hiking trails. Our 40’ coach was a fine fit using host’s posted instructions. Convenient location near services and beautiful historic area.
We had had a hard day and Jen's place was just what we needed. Thanks Jen, for your suggestions and a special thanks to the kids for showing us their creek and special hideouts! The space is very private and peaceful. Best of luck with your future plans!

Thanks to Jen and Dave, my first night at Boondockers was fantastic, nice quiet spot...see you in NZsometime!
The parking area was easily accessible and very private. Jen came down to welcome me and guided me in. The site easily accommodated my 40'+ Winnie but it's always good to have reassurance! Very warm and friendly greeting. The site had 30 amp and water as well as a beautiful outdoor setting for relaxing. Absolutely beautiful area of the country and, if you have a couple of days, great small towns (and wonderful restaurants) to visit for sightseeing and antiquing.
Hosts are incredibly gracious and kind. We had a great time talking with them and wonderful nights rest on their property. The site sits next to the creek below the hill their house is on and is surrounded by trees. There’s a huge fire pit and table to picnic at. It’s very private and beautiful. This beats most campgrounds we’ve stayed at! I really wish we could have stayed longer. Also, I highly recommend the fresh eggs. They are delicious!!
It was great to meet and visit with Jen and Dave. They have a beautiful property. The area is very quiet. If you go there, I would suggest getting there from Hwy 202, which is much quicker than the back road we chose (can’t remember the name). Would highly recommend a stay with Jen and Dave.
Generous, welcoming hosts. We enjoyed getting to know them. Beautiful surroundings. While there we visited Washington Crossing, took a steam train ride, and played an amazing mini golf course. A+ hosts!
We had a wonderful time at Jen and Dave’s for our very first BW stay. We live only an hour away and are still breaking in our new 23’ trailer. Dave was there to guide us into a pull in spot and leave room for their other BW guest in a 34’ motor home.
They left us plenty of wood in the fire pit for a nice fire the first night. Next morning we bought a dozen of their fresh eggs and had amazing omelets.
After a nice day tour Lambertville and Frenchtown we headed back late day 2. Woke up next morning to a joyous chorus of birds greeting the sun.
Spot is shaded by huge trees so we didn’t get much solar. Ran our generator for an hour one to top up batteries. The camp area is near a quiet country road with little traffic and you enter a gravel entrance before their driveway. Their driveway is paved and leads up a hill. The house is far enough away that we only heard the roosters during our stay.
Would stay again.
Love this area of the Delaware River Valley.
What a perfect place to stay. We had a great visit with our hosts. They made us feel very welcome. They have done a superior job at creating a beautiful place to park the RV.
We hope to cross paths again. Thanks for everything.
