JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – The Morris County Park Commission is announcing the reopening of the RV campgrounds at the Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in Jefferson Township starting on Saturday, June 13.
The reopening is possible due to Gov. Phil Murphy’s recent Executive Order. The Park Commission is stressing, that this reopening is only for recreational vehicles and not for the tent or Adirondack shelter area at this time.
