South Jersey Jeepers' - check in!!!!

I live around the Sea Isle City area and work in Millville. Any legal offroad places around there. Today on my way home from work I ventured off road on Rte. 83 onto some what looks like a fire road, the only real fun was the steep down/upslope off the road. Still, I got to work out the transfer case a little. My rigs' a stocker right now that needs a new upper ball joint so I have to take it easy.

Any places that I can go "mild" offroading? I've never tried the hardcore crawlin' and what not and don't really think I would want to try it. I also am not into the "heavy" muddin'. I guess I'm your "basic" off-roader.

Anyway, if any south jersey jeepers are in the area post here with your LEGAL off-roading spots.

WHarton is the only legal place to wheel in NJ. Its on Rt. 206, exit 28 on the expressway.
Im from AC, check this section. I think we are planning a run for sometime in July on a sunday.

Wharton is good because it has everything that is mild to pretty extreme. Our last run out, we had a JK on 37s burried to the doors where a stock XJ made it through about 20 feet to the left. As long as you know where your going, you will be fine.

DONT wheel alone at wharton, some holes get DEEP and there are freaks out there and you dont want to be stranded. Ill send you a PM next time we go out.

wharton

wharton state forrest is a great place.just dont get caught running over vegitation.very big fine.also get caught with adult drinks very big fine,have a camp or fire with out a permit,very big fine. end up in some ones cranberry bog or blue berry field you will be shot at.litter and you will be killed on the spot. trash or mess the place up,you will not make it out of the woods with your vehicle.that is a promise. the rangers have a zero tolerance policy.mess up and it will cost you more than you think. i live on the edge of the state forrest. i guess that makes me a freak.most just call us piney's.it is amaizing how nice people can get that are not from around here after being stuck up to the windshield all nite,and a piney in his bobbed deuce pulls up and ask's if you need a pull.the law of the woods,you never charge or accept money for pulling some one out.what goes around comes around.have fun be safe and think twice. and bring a few extra girls,with teeth.

Brian -

If you are looking for others next time you go let me know. My son and I would like to tag along. Our jeep is stock as well and my sons DD so we wouldn't be looking to take on anything really difficult but would like to get out.
I was in there about 20 years ago with a Toyota 4x4 pick-up I had at the time while camping to collect firewood but didn't venture very far into it. I did get in far enough to see a Ford 4x4 pick-up that was left there buried alive in sand and it would be nice to explore a little further.
Let me know if you wouldn't mind some extra company.

Sure. Funny, back in november there was a burried F150 left on. Saw a toyota coming to get it on our way out though.

Also the other smaller State Forests with dirt roads.
The woods are dry enough now for stock vehicles to go just about anywhere.
I'm local so I ride or wheel every weekend.

thanks Brian, i feel special that you meantioned me twice my stock XJ made it through just fine this past weekend, only time i got stuck was trying to pull Brian out, failled, and then tried turning around and got caught up in some mud. i've wheeled Wharton 3 times this year, got stuck only twice in about 15 hrs of wheeling. its pretty easy to go through the area if youre alittle smart about the route you take, and if youre a bit careful.

dennis is right though, it is pretty dry out there unless you become adventurous like we did and go in the more muddy/water areas. then you can refer to the picture Brian posted about getting stuck lol it was fun nonetheless, but damn Wharton for breaking my XJ.

as for yellowjacket, you tried going through some nasty areas, peanut butter mud indeed you went through lol
