This is a very quiet park that is several miles from anything. Besides hiking and relaxing, there isn't a whole lot to do at this park as the river is several miles away. The bathrooms were clean but could really use some updating. Just a few dollars worth of stall locks that lock and shower curtains that stay in place would make a big difference. Hanging your towel on a horizontal round peg is hard - how about some two dollar towel hooks that actually hold a towel! Note that there is some sort of pump right at Site 32 that makes a loud clicking noise several times when turning on. I recommend NOT CAMPING at or near Site 32 due to this noisy pump. The voltage at my site was pretty good. It would have been nice if the dirt and pavement at our site was at the same level so we didn't have such a large step when exiting the RV. Not all sites have this issue. Overall, this is a very nice and scenic park that is great for relaxing.

The main amenities we expect from a campground are a decent place to park the camper and the utilities we need for that particular stay. In terms of location, there is no park better for visiting New York City. The ferry (expensive) is just a short walk away, or one can walk only five blocks to take the NJ PATH subway (inexpensive) right into Manhattan. The park also has ample security as it is part of a harbor with lots of expensive boats. The main issue we had, and the reason for the low rating, was the electrical voltage. The first evening it was 102.5V, until we switched fridge to gas, an then it only went up to 104V. That was only from one air conditioner.  Throughout the week the voltage tended to be around 106V with the fridge plugged into the extra 20 amp outlet on the box. We had to rig things to get by. There is also a large building under construction right behind the park. They get going pretty early. Not sure if we would camp here again or try to stay farther out.  Luckily, the bathroom was clean - since the park has no sewage hookups.

Very nice destination park. Lots to do on-site, though there are enough rules to take the fun out of many activities. Pool was too cold to enjoy, and spa was not hot enough. We had a premium site that was very private. I don't see how the four gold sites are worth more as they are not near as private. Had some issues getting wi-fi to work.  Voltage was good, and cable TV worked well. Sewage connection was a little high. Had to use several blocks to level camper. Note that this park is in the vicinity of a rock quarry. We could easily hear the machines working when they fired up early Monday morning. Apparently they don't run on weekends. Overall, quite pleased with our visit and we would definitely stay here again.

Decent place to stop for the night. Site was a little un-level front to back, but we were able to park without unhooking. Kids said the pool was warm.  Electric voltage allowed plenty of headroom to run water heater.  Wi-fi was not very reliable. Would definitely spend night here again, even if it's not a destination park.

What a beautiful little park. Very quiet, yet close to town. Probably the best voltage we have ever had. Ran very close to a full 30 amps and never dropped below 119V. While the park is on well water, the attendant informed us that they are switching to city water in the next few weeks, which would explain the hardware sitting in the woods. There are a couple of river-view sites, but water access is difficult due to being on a 30 ft bluff over the river. Sites are large and level and hosts are very nice.

The staff was quite friendly during our visit. The scenery is awesome in the Premium sites. I don't know if the Deluxe site would be worth it as you are really just camping in the woods in a small campground with few amenities. There is not much for the kids to do, which can sometimes be nice. Very convenient to town. Electricity was good. I do get aggravated with parks advertising WiFi and then providing a totally inadequate signal. That's why I gave it a 9 instead of a 10. Otherwise, we got what we expected.

Date of Stay:

Except for advertising "Free WiFi" and not providing a strong enough signal to use inside the camper, this is a nice park. Note that the owners clearly state that their goal is to sell all the sites to individual owners. Still, the amenities make for a nice temporary stay. We have stayed here more than once and will likely return when in the area. I'm not sure where the shaded sites mentioned in other reviews are located. All the sites we have occupied have been out in full sun as the trees within the park are pretty short.

If the park didn't advertise Wi-Fi, this rating would have been a 10. Could not get Wi-Fi to work unless sitting by the pool house. Otherwise, this is a very nice, clean park. Electricity was good. Laundromat was by far the nicest we had ever used. Would definitely return.

This is a very decent overnight stop. There are two primary camping areas. The long gravel pull-throughs with no sewage are down the hill. The very short level concrete pads with sewage are up near the office. We stayed in the latter and had very good electrical service. Note that none of these sites are on the water, despite the park having two lakes. The campground looks much larger. However, there are many permanent residents. While there is a nice lake and a pool, the size and remoteness of the sites would not make this a destination park - at least in my opinion.

Due to the poor electrical service at this park, I can unfortunately not recommend it. During the heat of a weekday, when the park was not full, our voltage was 104.5 V with ONLY the air conditioner running on low. The fridge and water heater had to be run on gas. Even when the sun went down, the voltage was less than 109 V with the fridge and air conditioning. We also tried the 50 Amp plug with no improvement. Voltage did get better at night, but not enough to run the water heater. There is really no point in commenting on the nice amenities, like the pool, since the utilities are of most importance to us when choosing a park. This is one of the few times that the previous reviews have lead us astray- though we realize most folks probably don't monitor voltage so closely. Also, expect to be nickel-and-dimed for kids and pets.

At first I was very concerned when the electricity and water were on opposite sides of the site. Besides that, we have no complaints. In fact, the electric box on the door side made for a nice awning anchor and cup holder. Just be aware that some folks may need an extension cord. Most of the full hookup sites are level enough that it will not be a problem. Many of the electric only sites are quite unlevel - some to the point of being unusable. Except for the very cold pool, there is lots for the kids to do. We stayed here several nights and would definitely return when back in the area. Very nice playground.

Except for the strict rules about having to supervise children under 18, this is a very nice park. It's not really a destination park, but it was very convenient for an overnight stay. Utilities were good, including electricity. Our pull thru site was level and long enough that we didn't have to unhook. Wi-Fi was strong and the kids enjoyed the game room.

Except for the awesome location, this park doesn't have a whole lot going for it. Sites are very close together and there is not a lick of shade. Electricity was fine and satellite was obviously easy to set up. The kids enjoyed the pool, although it is quite small. Showers were very clean. There was a very nice Sunday morning service. It is probably less than a 10 minute walk to the beach.

Note that this is the same campground listed as Fort Pickens under Santa Rosa Island. Newer reviews appear in this listing. Several of the loops are undergoing some sort of sewer construction, apparently for the bath house. That was the reason we were given on one day for the very low, to nonexistent, water pressure that we had. Except for that and the "boil water notice" that we received during our stay, everything else was great. In talking with one of the workers here, the low pressure seems to be a common occurrence. One of the pumps died while we were here, thus the reason we were told NOT TO DRINK the water. Now I get to sanitize my RV plumbing. Although in terms of roads and other amenities, this park appears fine, I think mechanically they reopened too soon. The closest bottled water, for example, is about four miles away in town. My son also noted there were no paper towels/dryers or hand soap in the bathrooms. With the low water pressure, the toilets weren't flushing anyway. If I were going back, I would certainly call first to make sure the water was deemed safe to drink again. Having no water in such a remote location is a big pain.

Great park with lots to do in terms of outdoor hiking. We always prefer the sites in the back with no sewage. The sewage sites are packed in like a bunch of sardines, which doesn't appeal to us. They were doing some construction. I don't know if they were just making some of the sites pull throiugh, or if they were adding sites.
