This was a very nice park to stay in! We had a great site which was level. This park would be a good anchor point. It was 15 minutes from 6 Flags, you got free beach access with your camping permit at a beach whose distance I can't remember. I also think you could get to NYC very easily! Lots of kids playing at the playground. When quiet hours it, it was quiet! Also very quiet in the mornings. Had only 3 complaints and in the grand scheme of things, didn't really matter. First was the distance the water was from the site. Take a VERY long hose. Second was that we had enough pressure to run toilet and sinks but not the shower which leads to the third issue, the bathhouse has next to no hot water in the showers. I am fairly sure we would go back there! And everything previous reviews have said is true! Thanks to Monmouth County for providing a great place!

We spent 3 nights at this campground. We were lucky to get a spot along the river. The site was tight but the hubby managed to get the trailer in fine. The site was NOT level nor did it have a concrete pad as the web site claims the sites have. It took a bit but the hubby managed to get the trailer mostly level. The campsite itself was nice. Free wifi! There was a big group of Winnies that showed up and they had taken over the big field. The site was also full of seasonal campers. One of the campers likes to hit golf balls into the river and almost hit our friend when she was out in her kayak. The staff was friendly. We arrived and the office was closed because the owners had gone out to dinner. They had left a welcome note on the front door of the office with a map to get to our campsite. The owner came down later in the evening to make sure we were ok and settled and all that good stuff. We had steps from the site down to the river and our own little concrete dock. The seasonal people had wood docks built. We had taken our yaks so the hubby and our friend made good use of this. We had chosen this site because it was close to Knoebels which we spent a fun but hot day at. We were also close to Penn's Cave which was great fun. That night the heat broke so we had a fire and the fire pit was on the edge of the bank down to the river. A lot of people had fires so it was nice. There was also a nice ice cream parlor within walking distance and it was quite nice

Very engineered site. Some sites had shade. The sewer hookup was not in a convenient spot for the camper. Site was not level but a few blocks fixed that out. The fire ring had to be delivered, and the location it was put was not close. The people were quiet around there but there was a lot of road noise since the campground was between 78 and Old Route 22. Owners were very nice and had a pig roast for all the campers. Convenient location to Dorney Amusement Park.

I was a bit leery from other reviews about this park, but we had a great time there! My parents were staying in a local motel and was meeting us at the campsite. I had asked at the office at check in about the visitor's policy to make sure my folks didn't do anything wrong. Parents were welcomed with open arms and the owners spent time chatting to them. Our hotwater heater decided to spring a leak on the 4th and the owners came over with what we needed to get it fixed. We were very happy! Downside..the site wasn't that level. Took a bit of maneuvering to get our caravan set. The trail to the Grand Canyon was a trail and dumped you out at the edge of the state park and you then had to find your way to the canyon. We did enjoy our time there and would happily stay there again when up that way. Oh, and their puppy is greatly unloved and needs lots of scritches *LOL*

This place was excellent! Level sites, mostly quiet. Sandwiched between the DNR canal and the Delaware River. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers had loads of pressure and space. Plenty of cheap firewood for sale around the park. Frenchtown is nearby with some great shops and places to eat. We will be going back in September for another kayaking trip.
