Farview-Karamac Parking Areas
Old Mine Road, Worthington State Forest, Warren County, NJ


This is a parking area, Farview (on the right side of Old Mine Road) and the Karamac Parking area on the left. (0.9 of a mile from the red light for the one land road section.)


New Yorkers, John Newmarker and Arthur Feindt, close friends of area large land owner Charles  C. Worthington, built Camp Karamac, a river-front hotel along with cottages, swimming pools, playgrounds, and boating facilities. The name Karamac came from a fictional Indian warrior.

Worthington sold the camp owners his retired ferryboat in the area. Worthington's two sons, Reginald and Edward, later opened the Buckwood Inn on nearby Shawnee Island.


Reach the Karamac Trail by heading west toward the Delaware River. The trail goes off to the south and heads to a parking area along Old Mine Road.

The Beulahland Trail (yellow blazes) heads up the Kittatinnies. It takes the hiker to Sunfish Pond.

4/22/2005.  Ceferino Santana, dog Sonar and I walked down to the Delaware River.  I had not noticed before just how much sand there is along the Delaware River.  Dog Sonar had a blast running back and forth and digging in the sand.  He had not experienced sand like this before.  We walked up the river for a short ways and then returned.  Brief stay.  Dr. Patrick L. Cooney.
