But I've met people who grew up there who claim "New Jersey has a lot of nature and lots of fun outdoorsy stuff! Really!"
Is this true? If so, which state park should my family and I go camping in?
If you recommend against NJ after all, let me know your favorite northeastern U.S. camping destination! We'd like to be within driving distance from Boston, but slightly farther south is better at the moment, because we'd like to go sooner rather than later, so, you know, the mid-Atlantic is better than Canada (although we will be getting some awesome Canadian camping in during July).
