Great place to stop on our way south, private with lots of deer around.

Quiet, peaceful and super dark at night

This has been one of our favorite host locations! Only miles from High Point State Park with gorgeous views and hikes of all skill levels, fantastic cell signal, not far from shopping, little bit of traffic noise during the day, but super quiet, peaceful and dark at night. We hope to visit again in the future, Thank you Raja's Place!

Great host Lawrence was kind enough to let me have a part shipped to him for my 5th wheel. Beautiful spot. The high land state park was great. If going. Take exit 2. Not. Exit 1.

Great spot for a stay!

The spot was level and the kids loved the creek and discovering baby snapping turtles! Nice, private, and quiet... we recently visited NYC and this was a nice recovery from the busy city!

We woke up to a flat tire and the host helped with an air compressor and directions to a tire shop that fixed us up and got us on our way quickly!

Thanks so much!!

Loved it!

New Jersey – who knew?! Beautiful property, nice and level spot beside the barn, and an interesting visit with our warm and welcoming hosts. Would highly recommend this spot to our fellow BW friends. And Raja is one sweet dog!

Fantastic Hosts

What a lovely, welcoming couple. The property is well maintained, quiet and great location. Would highly recommend this Boondockers property. If in the area this property should be high on your list. Thanks so much to the hosts.

Raja is the coolest!

This is a wonderful place to stay! We enjoyed the creek and chatting with the host. He shared his collection of autos, Rv's, and tractors. We enjoyed chatting with our host how has many interests. AND we loved Raja! This pup is very special and it really is Raja's place! Thank you again and we hope we can see you again soon!

Another good stay

This was our second stay at Raja's place so we knew how to find it with no problems. We appreciate their hospitality and will ask to stay again if we are passing by this way. Thank you very much!

Good stay

Very friendly and accommodating hosts. When we had trouble finding the location we called our host for further directions, but he graciously came to where we were and led us to it. The parking space is large with gravel, and level. Our stay was only two nights, and the day between was rainy, so we did not get to explore the grounds and meet with them again after our initial introductions when we arrived. Too bad, as we enjoyed that conversation and would have liked to have another one. We are not "dog people," but Raja was very friendly and well behaved, so we enjoyed meeting him, too. After several nights at a previous stay without electricity it was nice to have 120v at Raja's Place.

beautiful, quiet location

We only ended up staying for one night at Raja's place even though we had been scheduled for two. We have friends in the area and wanted to be closer to them to visit and not drive 30 min each way. Lawrence was was so understanding. This is a beautiful spot to come and decompress from the city or just stay and enjoy the area. There is a state park 10 min away that is incredible. Unfortunately, we never got to meet the gracious hosts. Communication was on point and very welcoming. Thank you for the hospitality hardinge, we are so appreciative that there is such a wonderful community of people out there that will open up their space for us road travelers to have a quiet and safe place to land. :)

Love this spot!!!

Another great (even if short) stay at Raja’s Place!!
Got to meet some fellow Boondocker’s from Canada 🇨🇦 and chatted in the RV for a while!!
Decided to leave the next morning to continue our journey south!


October 2018

Awesome host

Lawrence is an awesome guy. Very welcoming and a fantastic spot to stay. He’s got some very cool toys. Classic trucks, cars, Jeep, Harley and Raja the dog was so freindly! The world needs more people like Lawrence!


October 2018

Very welcoming couple - Highly recommenced!

Great communication prior to our stay and after we left. And wow, what a first impression, such warm and welcoming people, it felt like visiting with old friends! Great location, love the brook, and saw 4 whitetail deer for a moment before they saw us. Unfortunately we could only stay the one night but look forward to hosting them and Raja (such a well behaved sweet boy) or returning to their home again in the near future! Thank you again for the power!

A little piece of heaven

We are loving our stay at Raja’s Place. Raja is a very handsome and sweet dog!!
He has graciously invited us to stay on until Thursday!!
We were leaving here today to head to Vermont, but there is so much to see here and the accommodations are just lovely with a flowing creek right outside our door. Very private as their home is on the complete other side of the property.
We will come back here, if Raja 🐕 says we can!!!


July 2018

Gracious host

The location was ideal. It is very close to the High Point State Park in N.J. The host and his family are the best. The spot is quiet with a stream running close to it. The expansive woods invites one to loiter. I witness deer grazing. The host invited me to view his collection of antique automobiles. I am sure to visit the Hardinge family again in the future.


July 2018

Nice stop over location in Northern NJ

Raja's place was a lovely stop-over for us on our way to the NYC area. Our host Lawerence was friendly and provided us with a shady, level spot close to his barn, with electricity to boot. He has several acres to explore, and even suggested a local event that we enjoyed (the Saturday night Classic Cars Cruise-In). We highly recommend Raja's if you are in the northern NJ area!

Excellent host and great place to stay

This was a perfect place to stay. The parking has gravel and it was easy to maneuver my 37 foot RV. The river was very peaceful and relaxing, the the nearby field was a great place to spot some roaming deer. If you have a big rig, take your time going through the gate as the posts can be a little intimidating but we were able to handle it with no problem. The host was excellent and met us our first night. He was very friendly and polite, and took us for a short walk with his dog and showed us the area around the campsite. All in all, it was a great stay and we were very happy.


April 2018

thanks Raja’s Family

We had a fantastic time at Raja’s place, another piece of paradise in this this amazing country. Nestled by the river we were able to see deer wandering around the property and greeted by Raja and his owners Lawrence and Tara.
We were shown nothing but warm hospitality and given great tips on getting into NY city for a day trip.
Thank you so much for hosting us. Please come visit us in Australia one day soon.
