Very difficult to judge. On one hand, the property is very well run by very friendly, accommodating staff. But the devil is in the details. Every morning the guy who empties your individual trash can (nice), ran out of newspapers before he got to my site (not nice). The resort boasts a wonderful restaurant (nice), that was closed the night we wanted to go "because we forgot that we had already booked a private party" (not nice). The resort has a nice little boat that takes guests around the lake (nice), that was out of service when we were there (not nice). The resort fee of $15 per day per site will allow you to use the pool (nice), but it cannot guarantee that maintenance will not be power washing the apron of the pool area, all day, for two days straight in anticipation of the holiday weekend (not nice). That being said, nice resort, nice location, nice staff, nice, nice, nice. Just bad timing I guess.

Our third time to Elk Neck, first time in the new fiver. We wanted to keep close to home (less than 100 miles), but can't stomach Jersey state parks. Very quiet this time of the year, just us and the campground host. Periodic patrols of Maryland Park Police and park service employees add to the sense of security. always a good hike out to the lighthouse, lots of improvements being made all around the park. My wife just turned 62, so we signed up for the Maryland golden Age passport when we checked in, half priced camping. If you like quiet, clean state parks, this is a good choice.

Very difficult to rate. The professionalism of the staff and the overall attention to detail rates a 10. However, I was disappointed in the lack of Wi-Fi at the sites and the dodging of golf carts that seem to overrun the place. As a campground, I guess it would rate highly as a commercial campground. As a place to relax, it seems all too prepackaged and busy for my tastes. Restrooms, immaculate. Ease of transportation, efficient. I guess I find it comparable to a great hotel in a busy city. Clean, sterile and efficient. Just not what I look for in a great campground. My apologies to the Disney fanatics.

Very nice state park. Well maintained. Good camp store, bike trails, and staff. Wish we had a couple more days to spend.

Normally I don't write my review until I've left, but I wanted to get word to anyone coming to Bluewater any time soon to call ahead about the pool. It's currently closed for repairs to the apron that were supposed to have been completed by the end of August. They have not been finished and there is rebar everywhere. So if the pool makes a difference, you've been told. We only found out after we already were heading down through an email "reminding" us that the pool may be closed during our stay. That having been said, this place is still one of the best. We scored site 41, which is at the end of the key and is spacious and well laid out. The managers are still the best. There is a remodeled laundry that is great.

This is a nice county park. Lots of biking trails and a 15 minute ride to both downtown Charleston and the plantation tours. The only reason for an 8 rather than a 10 was that my wife found the shower not as clean as she would have liked. Otherwise, the store was well stocked, the staff friendly and the site was private. We would come back again.

For what this campground sells itself as, it is a 10. I would not call it a destination resort. But neither do they. It is a place along 95 to put in relatively early, put on your swim trunks and enjoy the great pool. The showers are new & spotless. The grounds are well maintained. We will use this place again.

Not much that I can add that hasn't been said before. Well run, friendly rangers, beautiful beach right over the dunes. Liked the visitor center, hated the occasional bug. Like the ponies, annoyed at times by the wind. Great dry camping.

Date of Stay:

This was our fourth stay in many years. I've reviewed this campground before. I wanted to review again now that I've had more experiences in other campgrounds. I feel that I can objectively tell you that if you want to get away, midweek, on a wilderness site, this is as good as it gets in South Jersey. It's good for short term. We found the front desk staff, as well as the workers around the campground to be pleasant. The pool was clean. Remember, this is the pines. Nothing fancy. Lots of families, lots of kid activities. Not a destination, but nice to sit by the river with friends.

Our second time to this beautiful park. Great walk out to the lighthouse. Well maintained. Camp host and rangers are friendly. Nice end to our season.

Date of Stay:

Great campground for families with kids. Lots to do. However, it doesn't appeal to my wife and me, as we normally like quiet. But like I said, if you have kids and want lots of organized activities, this is a well run machine.

Date of Stay:

Good base for visiting Biltmore. Friendly and helpful. Earlier postings that mentioned updating the restrooms are correct. Updating would make this a solid 9. Don't drive yourself crazy getting a premium site. There is a public area that you can walk to in the premium site area that has a great view, in my opinion.

Date of Stay:

Good stop along I-81. Friendly staff. Restrooms were clean. Well stocked store. Leveling the camper was challenging, had to change sites. Pool looked good, though we didn't use it. We would stay again for a stopover.

This is a nice state forest campground in the Jersey woods. Quiet and well maintained. No hookups, but a dump station and potable water are available. Even though I only gave it a seven, that number is quite good for any park in NJ ( although if you were to read some of my earlier reviews, I was overly generous to some other NJ campgrounds). After spending way too much time in NJ commercial campgrounds, I would have to say that the state parks are the way to go and this one is pretty good.

Date of Stay:

Good stop along I-95. Easy in, friendly staff. Freeway noise. Not quite level sites, but a good store and free Wi-Fi. Would use again for stopover.
