Because the Belleplain Group Lodge is just northwest of Cape May, these directions will work for most of our attendees.

If you need directions from other points, drop me an e-mail (merlin @ clam dot rutgers dot edu), and I'll help you out

To start out, you should head towards NJ-55 via NJ-42 and I-76 and/or I-295.
If you're coming from Philadelphia, you should take either the Ben Franklin or the Walt Whitman,
then take I-676 and/or I-76 south to NJ-42, then look for NJ-55 south

.

These directions pick up on NJ-55, just off of 42, south of 295:

Along this stretch, you'll see signs telling you to turn off of 347;

ignore them!

They take you to Belleplain's office, which is quite far from the cabin...

Watch on your left for a sign mentioning the East Creek Pond.

Pass the pond itself.

Just a few tenths of a mile further, make a left into the cabin's driveway.

PPS. If you wanna play around with Google Maps and see where you're going from a satellite/StreetView perspective, here's the cabin.
Notice how far down the road past the cabin you have to go before turning into the driveway...
