    Just stayed for 3 days. The bathroom near the group campsite was very clean. We rented one of the group sites and got lots of exercise carrying our gear to it but that is what being out in nature is all about. Exercise!!!. We had an awesome time and loved everything: the bugs in our tea, the dirty feet, the cold at night, the trees, the sound of the birds, the lake. It was an awesome experience…and I really mean it. I felt like a kid. Nothing taste as good as food cooked outside and we all were sad to leave. Cass

    What a shame a Beautiful Campground, has the most disgusting Bathrooms I have ever seen, Port a Potties are better then these bathrooms. Checked in on Saturday and figured OK weekend people haven’t gotten to it, well here it is Monday afternoon and the same trash in the bathrooms is still in there, no toilet paper, no hand towels and no soap, and nothing has been cleaned, actually they look like they have not been cleaned properly in over a year, someone came in and changed one trash can on Sunday. Now lets talk about the Trash Dumpsters outside the bathroom, that are over flowing with trash, and attracting every species of animal in a 2 mile radius!!!! NJ we have the highest taxes in the nation, can someone please clean the Bathrooms in our State Parks so when people from out of state, don’t say Ewww NJ is disgusting!!!

    Parvin State Peak is, indeed, a beautiful park for hikers/walkers and nature lovers alike. However, my review is about cabin reservations. Those in charge of reservations at Parvin State Park ought to be fired, or at least ashamed of themselves, although I sadly feel assured that neither will happen.Some mutual friends had reserved two cabins for a weekend in May and October this year. (They have been renting cabins at Parvin for a few years now.) They made their reservations last year for this year, early enough to assure getting one, as the cabins go fast. There were no problems at the time of making the reservation and the proper amounts were withdrawn from their bank accounts for both cabins and both weekends. We went there in May, no problems.When we went there in October (yesterday, as of this writing), it turned out that both cabins had been rented to other parties. Two cabins rented, paid in full, and expected to be waiting for us had been rented to other parties. All of the planning everyone had to do prior to this weekend, including taking off from work (with monies that could have been made not being made), and the money spent for food was just shot in the you-know-where. Most of us traveled 30 miles or more to get there.To begin with, bumping people out of reservations should not happen. Yes, it has happened — according to a park police officer, this has happened before — but it should not. You paid for it, you should get it. Period. My friends received absolutely no notice from Parvin in any way, shape, or form about their actions. Their monies were taken, and they have to get a lawyer now the get reimbursed, but the cabins were not delivered.If this is what people looking to reserve cabins — people who have reserved there before — have to deal with, then no one should reserve cabins there. Perhaps the same is true for the campsites as well, I don’t know for certain, but a reservation is a reservation.Very unethical in its business practices, Parvin State Park is to be avoided for camping.

    Love parvin, been going since I was a,little girl. This was something my family could always afford to do. Only costs a couple of dollars in the summer to swim. Great and affordable snack bar. I was just there yesterday and hiked the 3 mile loop. Beautiful scenery all along the trails. Cant beat it!
