Date of Stay: July, 2016
In the last couple of years this park has been sold and is owned by one of those large companies that buy up campgrounds. When privately owned, this campground was a pleasure to stay in. Now it's a nightmare. First, entering and being searched by security. I guess they need to make sure you aren't bringing in wood, but the way the guy acted you would've thought he was looking for a cache of weapons and a truck of drugs! We were a family that obviously had none of the above, but didn't even get a hello. He then visually inspected the inside of our truck and counted the people in it. His attitude is what made it creepy. Pull over there and go inside. That was the direction given to us. We did and found a mildly chaotic office; nothing out of the norm. People checking in, buying stuff, etc. Our turn came up and we were again not met with a hello but a big ole eye roll. Ok, give me the map and let us get on our way. Our site was not pond front, but was very tight for the 30 foot trailer. Extremely tight on the left and right. Our site had not been cleaned up from the prior campers and had beer cans, juice boxes, and smoldering logs in the fire pit. I do not remember ever have an issue with the water at this campground, but the smell, even with a filter on the trailer was absolutely awful. Pure sulfur. The restrooms were no better and what made them worse is they were dirty. It looks like they only clean them once a day. The staff acts as though you are bothering them, and there is NO SECURITY at night leaving the place loud, with people running all over. Awful, expensive stay. Will never return or ever stay at another place owned by this company.

Park has extremely tight, narrow, potholed roads going in. Sites are large which is nice, but it stops dead there. Pitbulls running around unleashed, lots of public drinking and intoxication especially in the front. They rent kayaks and canoes to large groups and they get pretty rowdy right in front of the kids playground. The pool is very small and very crowded. It was dirty and in bad shape; holes in the sides, cracked concrete. People that didn't seem to be staying but coming off tubing trips just hopping in and using the pool. The worst part of our stay was when we saw a seasonal tenant, which most of the campground seems to make up these spots, run out onto his deck with a makeshift spear and throw it at the squirrels that were on his site! His face was twisted up as he threw this spear, the hatred was in his eyes. Thankfully, he had awful aim and missed the four times we saw him do this. Very scary sight to see, all caught on video. I would never recommend this place.

Site fee covers two adults. Children/teens are extra and this boosted our site fee up to $80 per night for three nights. Check-in - The office/store appeared dirty. Not just dirt from the ground, but old and run down. The staff was just plain old nasty. A little further into our stay and we realized the employees all seem to be seasonal people or maybe they just lived there all year. Either way, not nice at all. Site - Was narrow and not deep at all. Had a constant smell of sewer. Asked to be moved and was accommodated, but new site smelled the same. The smell of sewage kept us from eating outdoors. Amenities - Bare bones. A hayride for little kids and that's about it. The pool was closed. This campground is not family friendly at all. All in all - The place seems to be a party place. Speeding golf carts all over the place driven round and round all day and night by people with drinks/beers in their hands. They stop to talk after a few hours, but by then they are so drunk you have no idea what they are saying. Just walk away from them. The river was nice but the "beach" area was completely littered with trash. We canoed and had a great time on the river. The bathrooms were deplorable. Not just old and run down but absolutely filthy. Thankfully we didn't have to use them. This place is so over rated it's not funny. Even if it were just the two of us, we wouldn't return. Just way too sleazy for me.

This park, which I believe has relatively new owners, is suffering from a trend that owners of campgrounds feel it is perfectly fine to charge a premium, but provide bare minimum. This park is nothing more than a trailer park with a lot of permanent/seasonal sites. The bathrooms are old and dirty. This place sits in front of an airport, Atlantic City International Airport. There is nothing nice about camping on a airport runway. The noise from the planes is almost constant. The area outside of the campground is mainly commercial with shopping. I can't find anything good to write about this place. It appeared as though we annoyed the staff at check in, so when we needed stuff we left and went to a nearby Walmart. $50-$55 a night for this place is way over the top. Drop it down to $30.00 because that's all it's worth.

We didn't have high expectations, as this place gets mixed reviews. I'm guessing they don't write their own. We had a large group (some were from the north Jersey area which is why we selected this park), and all were set up together. The sites were not very level, but they were clean. The kids had an amazing time playing games and they actually kept themselves occupied! The staff was fine and we didn't require their attention except for checking in. Since we were all self contained and it was pretty chilly, we all used our own bathrooms and showers. I didn't even bother to look at theirs. We did have a good stay, but probably won't return especially in season. I'm sure it gets really crowded.

Park entrance appears nice but quickly stops. Sites are small with bad electric. Play park is small with outdated equipment. Pool was crowded with no supervision. Staff was horrible. Roads are dirt and potholed. Dead trees looming all over the place. You could hear them cracking. Tons of old moldy seasonal sites. Miles from anything. Many miles from the nearest beach. Would never return.

This park is more of a permanent trailer park than campground. The place is quite scary. Beat up dirty campers where I believe people live year round. The bathrooms were horrific. Bumpy dirt roads throughout. This place was probably once a nice place to camp as I heard so much about it. However, it is currently owned by one of those massive companies that are buying up campgrounds and running them in to the dirt. We left after one night. As I said the place was scary and we did not feel safe there at all. Not for children or families.
