Seeing the Best of NJ at Our Local Campgrounds

Going camping with your Subaru

When you decided to buy a Subaru, chances are that you had a bit more in mind than just commuting to work on paved roads. If you’re eager to pack up your gear and spend some time exploring the great outdoors, then it’s time to check out some of the Subaru of Morristown team’s favorite camping spots right here in New Jersey!

High Point State Park

One of our state’s best known state parks, High Point is notable for a few reasons. Just like its name suggests, it’s home to the highest point in New Jersey; the view is truly exceptional. Additionally, the Appalachian Trail runs through the park and provides some great hiking.

If you’re looking to rough it, group campsites are available to accommodate everything from single tents up to groups of 25 campers. For those who prefer a little more indoors in their outdoors, the park also has two three-bedroom cabins or a single large group cabin, depending on availability.

Belleplain State Park

With over 20,000 wooded acres in South Jersey, Belleplain has plenty of space for campers to enjoy. Over 150 campsites accommodate tents, trailers, and campers, so you can camp however you like. Each campsite offers basic amenities such as fire pits and picnic tables, while shared showers and toilets provide the creature comforts many campers don’t want to leave behind–roughing it shouldn’t be too rough, after all!

Parvin State Park

Nestled along the south shore of Parvin Lake in Pittsgrove, Parvin State Park is another picturesque destination that you don’t want to miss. With over 50 tent and trailer camp spots, the state park offers a great opportunity for New Jersey’s busy locals to get away, disconnect, and unwind for a night or two.

Can I Drive My Subaru of New Jersey’s Beaches?

When you’re spending the day down the shore and see lifeguards and other beach employees cruising along the coast in pickup trucks or UTVs, you might start to wonder whether or not you could do the same thing in your Subaru.

While the team at our New Jersey Subaru dealer is confident that you can drive on sand with the proper preparation–Cars.com has ranked the Subaru Outback among the best vehicles for driving on sand, after all–you should keep in mind that most beach towns forbid driving on the sand during the busy summer season.

Subaru capability

Many towns do allow vehicles on the sand from September to March, though; some require a permit, while others don’t. Either way, you should always take proper precautions before driving your vehicle onto the beach.

Prepping to Drive on Sand

If you spend much time off-roading around New Jersey, then prepping your Subaru for different terrain or weather is probably a familiar process. With sand, you primary concern is making sure that you don’t sink in. Packed, damp sand is fairly easy to navigate, but loose sand is another story.

To start, deflate your tires to 15 psi or so. This allows your tires to squish out sideways, creating a bigger footprint to distribute your vehicle’s weight so that your wheels don’t just dig ruts into the sand. Of course, you need to re-inflate them before leaving the sand; even a short trip on pavement with such low pressure could destroy your tires or pull them off the rim.

While driving on sand, try to take turns very gradually. Sharp turns will dig you into the sand. Speaking of digging, keep a shovel handy to refill ruts if you need to reverse to attempt a curve more gradually after digging yourself down.

Whatever type of driving you plan to do, safety and planning are always key. To explore some of the most capable vehicles around here at Subaru of Morristown, be sure to contact us by calling (866) 910-3466 today!

Packing a First Aid Kit for Your Subaru With Our Parsippany Area Team

You might not think of your car as a place where you tend to encounter many cuts, scrapes, or bruises, but having a first aid kit handy is always a good idea. When you or the ones you’re with get injured, your vehicle is often closer than home. Having basic first aid supplies on hand can go a long way toward minimizing an issue until you get home or, in a worst case scenario, until emergency help arrives.

So, what should you keep on hand? Our Parsippany area Subaru dealership has put together a list of some of the basics to help you stay safe while traveling.

The Basics

Whether you purchase a first aid kit or pack your own, always be sure to have the basics on hand. Antibiotic cream and adhesive bandages, for instance, can turn an unexpected cut or scrape into a non-issue as you go about your day. Similarly, antiseptic wipes, gauze, and medical tape can help you to take care of many minor injuries you might encounter.

In addition to the essentials for cuts and bruises, we suggest packing an instant cold pack and antihistamines. These can help for minor bumps, swelling, and bug bites, respectively.

Your Must-Haves

While these basics that you’ll find in most first aid kits are essential, our Parsippany area Subaru dealer also suggests thinking of your and your family’s unique needs. If you have allergies that can require emergency medication, for instance, keeping them on hand can be a good idea. Just be sure to check with your doctor about how storing them in your vehicle might impact them and how to best transport them, first.

Of course, your first aid kit is only helpful when it’s handy and stocked. Your Subaru has plenty of cargo space, so be sure to always leave it where you can find it. Always be sure to replace items you use, too; those are the ones you’re most likely to need again!
