June 2015 - It’s June -- Time to Get Outdoors and Pitch a Tent

A couple hikingHunterdon County offers many beautiful, natural areas to enjoy and this is the perfect time of the year to do that since June has been dedicated both Great Outdoor Month and National Camping Month.

Camping is a great way to appreciate our natural resources. In fact, 11 years ago the National Wildlife Federation started the Great American Campout in an effort to encourage people to connect with nature. The event this year runs from June 27 through September 7 with the goal of promoting the protection of wildlife and natural resources.

In Clinton Township, we have easy access to several camping facilities designed to satisfy campers of all levels. Round Valley Campground, located right here, is one of the few State facilities offering backpack camping. None of the campground’s 85 campsites is accessible by vehicle; campers must hike, bike or boat across the reservoir to reach their campsite. With steep, rocky trails and primitive facilities, this campground is best for the experienced camper.

Less experienced campers or those with young children have other options just a short drive away:

  • Jugtown Mountain Campground, West Portal, features 150 campsites, half of which are reserved for RV camping;

  • Spruce Run Recreation Area, Union Township, offers 67 campsites accommodating both tents and trailers;

  • Voorhees State Park, Glen Gardner, has 47 campsites accommodating both tents and trailers, two group sites and three shelters.

Before dusting off your sleeping bag, familiarize yourself with what is and isn’t allowed when camping in New Jersey. A list of general camping rules can be found at http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/camprules.html. Check with your campsite for individual restrictions.

If all of this still sounds too rustic for you, consider pitching a tent in your own backyard for the Great American Backyard Campout on June 28! – Still a great way to experience nature and teach children about wildlife.

Client Reviews

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.


Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships. He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Rotolo Law Firm and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and the Rotolo Law Firm for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
