Pocono campsites packed after NJ closures

SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP, New Jersey – Because New Jersey can’t reach a budget agreement, the state’s government has shut down. That means New Jersey’s state parks, forests and recreation sites are closed.

Thousands of families panicked to make new plans for the Fourth of July holiday, and many re-routed to the Poconos. KOA Campgrounds in Smithfield Township had to come up with its own plan, quick.

The O’Donnell family had camping reservations in a New Jersey state park. But those big plans came crashing down once they learned it was closed. “So we had a last minute scramble,” says Kerry O’Donnell of New York.

The original broadcast about the campground closures is available at WBRE/WYOU.
