Vernon Township Tourism

Vernon Township is a township in Sussex County, New Jersey, United States. It is located about one hour's drive from New York City and is part of the New York Metropolitan Area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 23,943, reflecting a decline of 743 (-3.0%) from the 24,686 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 3,475 (+16.4%) from the 21,211 counted in the 1990 Census. It is both the most populous municipality and the largest in area in the county. Vernon is home to Mountain Creek (formerly Great Gorge and Vernon Valley), a ski resort and water park as well as the Crystal Springs Resort's Minerals Hotel and Elements Spa. The Hidden Valley ski resort, which opened in 1976 and occupied a 140-acre (57 ha) property that included one of New Jersey's three remaining downhill skiing facilities, closed at the end of the 2013 season and could find no buyers at an auction held that year. The Great Gorge Playboy Club was located in the Vernon community of McAfee, but was sold and turned into a hotel, now called the Legends Resort & Country Club.


It is a vibrant town located in New Jersey. Not very large, the place can easily be mapped on foot. Though the place has been here for quite long, it is only recently that it has started seeing visitors and gaining crowd. Thanks to that, the architecture is quite vivid but has been slightly tempered to give it that old rustic charm. Replete with natural charisma, the place and its highlands offer a great opportunity for hiking, biking and such. History lovers can walk through the old hamlets of Warwick that will serve as a remanence of history. Other important places are parks, museums, historical houses including the famous Strazza Art Gallery. Come here and connect with nature and culture here.
