Washington Tpke is one of the major utility roads on the south side of the New Jersey Wharton State Forest. The road begins near the Batsto Visitor's center as pavement but quickly turns to a sandy gravel road. The road is wide and serves as a fire break through the forest. Near the road's east end, Washington Tpke passes by the Godfrey Bridge Campground. Camping requires a permit from the visitor's center and is just $5.00 nightly for out-of-staters. The campsites are relatively close together, and each has a fire ring. There is an outhouse in the campground. Many of the other more rugged roads emanate from the Washington Tpke.
