Our full-service site was sand and heavily wooded. This is a huge campground that seems to have a lot of seasonal campers. We were there a few days before they closed for the winter, so a lot of the amenities were closed down. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Date of Stay:

This campground is immaculate. It is right on a very beautiful beach. The beach runs East/West and you get both sunrises and sunsets. Most of the campsites are behind a tall dune and can not see the water. We were in Red 64 on the top of the hill back from the dune and had a great view of the water over the top. We arrived after a big rain storm, and the Green tent sites area (which is in a low spot between 2 hills) was flooded. The staff were very helpful. We liked it here so much that we added a third night to our stay.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here twice, once on our way South and again on our way North on the same trip. We arrived on a rainy night and found the pole with our utilities in the middle of a small pond of water. Campground staff graciously allowed us to relocate. The sites for transient guests are level, gravel, pull-through and full service. It takes a little while to get connected to the internet, and the connection is not strong. The trains mentioned in other posts are present, but we did not find them that disruptive. That said, it is very conveniently located off of I-95.

We stayed the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday before Halloween Saturday. The first two nights the campground was empty. Friday night was quite busy with families pulling in and decorating for the big night. Almost every campsite is near the water or has some kind of view of the water. Be aware that some of the waterfront sites have had substantial erosion. There are lots of activities for kids. We put our kayaks in the water and had a very nice paddle. If you like watery sports, there are lots of things to do here. We ran into people who have been coming here for 30 years (came as kids, now bringing their kids). Added bonus, the campground is owned by the same family as the Cherrystone Aquaculture Company and they farm clams and oysters right off shore. You can get oysters and clams at a good price from the "plant." The plant is on the same road as the campground, and you can walk, bicycle or golf cart over to pick up yummies. In warm weather they also give tours for a nominal fee.

There is no other way to say it, this is an aging trailer park with 17 RV sites jammed together around a bath house. We arrived after the office was closed and were met by "security" to be let into the gate and led to our site. On the way, we passed the burned out shell of a trailer. We walked around the campground with our dog, and saw quite a few 1970's vintage trailers. Some of the sites were fixed up nicely, others not so much. We had thought to stay longer and explore Lewes DE, and decided that there was nothing for us in this campground and hit the road the next day instead. We had come over on the afternoon Cape May Ferry. All of the other campgrounds in the area were already closed for the winter. This place is adequate if you have no other option. If you have a choice, choose someplace else.

We stayed in a brand new section of the campground. Our site was level and well kept. At the time we were there, there were 3 of us in the whole section. We moved from our assigned site right next to another camper to a site further down, so that there was space around us. We liked it there, and found it very convenient to Cape May. We had an odd encounter. We arrived after the office closed and when we left the next morning, we were asked to sign a waiver for them to use photographed images of us. Really? We were leaving and no one on staff had been around all of our short stay, much less taken our picture. It seemed an unnecessary piece of bureaucracy.

We stayed here 1 night after we visited Atlantic City. This is more of a permanent RV community than a campground. We moved from our assigned campsite because our neighbor had pitched a tent right next to our sewer hook up. The sites are red gravel, and very level. They are close together, but at the time we were there, most of the ones set aside for short-termers were empty.

Date of Stay:

At the time we stayed in late October, only the sites in the loop around the office were open. We liked it so much that we decided to stay for a second night. The first night (Thursday) the park was almost empty; Friday night it was full with mostly local folks. The campground was clean and well-run. Our site was level, gravel and the utilities were very convenient. The sites are very close together. The camp store was fabulous. This campground is very convenient to LBI and the Jersey Shore.

We stayed in this park 1 night. The campground was clean, if a little run-down. The campground spreads around a pretty little lake. It seemed like it was mostly seasonal campers, with a few sites set us aside for those of us passing through. We were there during October, and many of the campsites were really decorated for Halloween. This is a Passport America campground.

We like State Parks because they have trees and space, and this park is no exception. The campgrounds line 2 sides of a lovely lake. There is a dirt trail around the lake. We were in the dog loop, and were told to pick out a site that suited us. It was mid-week and pretty empty. The site was almost level, but the trees next to the entrance to the site made backing in a little trickier than usual. Our nightly rate mentioned above included the out of state fee plus the dog fee, less the senior citizen discount. This is a little off the road, but a nice getaway. Follow the directions of the lady at the registration hut, our GPS had us going a different way. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here to get off the road for the night between two long travel days. It is between two exits on the interstate, and we saw many other rigs pull in at the end of the day as well. They have lots of activities for folks who stay for a while, and a central grass/gravel areas for those of us who just need a spot to spend the night. By bedtime that area was mostly full. The grass area is near to an internet hotspot, so we had good internet. Our full-service site was level.

This cash only, 17-site campground is part of a community run park. There is an exhibition coal mine and miners village as part of the same park a short walk from the campground. The coal mine runs underneath the park and campground. We arrived just at night fall and got the last campsite. They only have staff on-site between 6-9:30 at night. Arrive earlier and you need to check in at the exhibition coal mine store. The unused campsites are chained off and ours was unlocked for us as we checked in. Our site was not level at all. You drive through town to get to the campground. The final roads are narrow, and a previous reviewer was correct, there is a sharp right turn to get to the campground road. Be careful not to take out the poorly placed telephone pole on the corner.

We stayed here for our visit to the wonderful Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill just 9 miles away. The park is well-maintained. It is on the cliffs over looking Lake Harrington, and crammed full of seasonal guests. We arrived late in the day and got a back-in spot that was a little short for our 30 feet, but we parked at an angle and were able to keep our nose off the road. There is a marina a short walk down the road. We swam our dog there. We were surprised to see the sign saying that the marina charges for launching kayaks and canoes as well as power boats. That area of Kentucky has mostly narrow windy roads, and the road into this campground is no exception.

This campground does not have electricity or water at the sites. There is potable water that you can fill up from near the Camp Store. Our pull-through spot was curved, almost level and easy to manage - we are 30 feet long. The campground was shady. Deer roamed through. The best part is that the campground is about a 1/4 mile walk on nicely maintained walkways to the Visitors Center of the Mammoth Cave. We arrived in mid-September and were told to drive around until we found a spot that suited us and then tell the Ranger at the entry area which one we had chosen. She provided us with a map on which she had highlighted the best spots for motor homes. We were in site 77 and liked it very much if you get to make that choice yourselves. There were a few other campers, but none so close that our generators bothered each other. Another reviewer noted that the firewood was green and didn't start well, we had the same experience. It also seemed like a small bundle for $5.00 However, you can't bring wood in lest you also bring in dangerous pests, so the wood was better than nothing. We would have rated this campsite a 10 if there had been electricity and water.

This cash or check only little campground is within walking distance of the York Beaches. We stopped in just for the night. There were lots of empty sites, but we heard the owners tell folks over the phone to call back the next day to see if sites were available. I got the impression that they were more interested in longer stays (a week), and took short stays on the day of. The sites were close together with good utilities. Seemed a bit overpriced though for what we got. We were near the office and wifi worked well. The York Beaches are full of beach town shops and activities. The beaches are lovely and unusually large for Maine.
