Camp Glen Gray
Located in Mahwah, between Ramapo Valley County Reservation and Ramapo Mountain State Forest, Camp Glen Gray served as a Boy Scout camp from 1917 until 2002, when it was acquired by Bergen County. The Bergen County Parks Department or the NJ DEP manage the more remote portions of the 800-acre camp, but the "core area" - which includes cabins, lean-tos, and campsites - is operated by the Friends of Glen Gray. These rustic overnight facilities are available for rental by groups, families, or individuals -- use Contact Information on this site for more information.
