    Most likely, 20* quilts will suffice, but Batona Campground is car camping, so you can bring extra stuff to supplement your quilts. If the temps look to be low, you can always ask to borrow a quilt or two and stack them.

    I happen to have just moved to NJ, so it looks like I probably need to make my way to Batona for this!

    I see a few new people who say they are bringing dogs. Just keep in mind that you will need to register your pet with copies of pet license and rabies registration on njportal.com. If you did not reserve a campsite, you can probably get someone who did to register the dog (if you provide them with the required documentation). There is a $5 additional fee for pets (dogs and cats only, no iguanas).

    Also, while the njportal.com website says you're supposed to bring your pet license and proof of rabies shot to the office, I don't believe that is necessary as long as you pay the $5 fee, register them at njportal.com, and bring copies of the documentation.

    Here's a link on pets:

    https://www.nj.gov/dep/parksandfores...y_camping.html

    Also, please keep your pets on a leash, as we have had problems in the past with those who did not think this rule applied to them and their roaming pets.

    Also, you are theoretically supposed to go to the office to get your camping permit, but nobody's done that since the COVID pandemic. Just print your reservation and bring it with you to the campsite. We sometimes have people not in our group who show up at the campsite and camp wherever they want with no reservation. If you have a printed reservation and they don't, they gots to move.

    This doesn't apply to people who are part of our group but did not reserve a site. You'll be fine.

    For newbies to Batona Camp, you should check out Carranza Memorial, just 100 ft. from the entrance to Batona Camp. Here's a quick blurb:

    The Carranza Memorial in Tabernacle marks the spot where Captain Emilio Carranza Rodríguez was killed while returning from a historic goodwill flight from Mexico City to the United States. Carranza became a national hero when, in the summer of 1928, he was selected to undertake a goodwill flight from Mexico City to New York City in response to the previous year's flight from New York City to Mexico City undertaken by American aviator Charles Lindbergh.

    Carranza began his American visit by landing in Washington, D.C. on June 12 where he was congratulated by President Calvin Coolidge. He then flew to New York City and was honored by the city’s mayor. Carranza departed New York on July 12. Shortly after taking off, he encountered thunderstorms while flying over the NJ Pinelands. His plane, named the Excelsior, came apart and he crashed into the woods. His body was recovered the next day.

    A 12-foot monument in Wharton State Forest marks the site of his crash. WikiMiniAtlas

    The monument, installed with funds donated by Mexican schoolchildren, depicts a falling eagle of Aztec design. Every July, on the Saturday nearest the anniversary of his crash (second Saturday in July) at 1:00 p.m. he is honored at the monument site by members of the American Legion Mount Holly Post 11 accompanied by an entourage from the Mexican consulates in New York City and Philadelphia.
