Upon check-in we requested a site that we could renew beyond the three nights requested should we decide to stay longer. We were told no problem, and the camp had many open sites during our entire stay. We went to the office to renew and they refused to renew our site. The staff said that it was rented and if we wished to stay we would have to move to another site. NOW. We decided to just go on to our next destination if we had to pack any way due to the work involved. Nobody on the staff had bothered to warn us that we needed to move or leave, and we found out accidentally by going to the office to renew despite our previous request to potentially stay in that site longer. Instead of heading to the beach we now had one hour to pack and move our unit. We told them after packing that we would like to park the camper in their acres of empty parking lots while we went to the beach since our plans had been disrupted and they said NO! Yeah, I love good customer service. Frankly it wasn't worth renewing any way since our site was pathetic, way too small even for a pop up, and afforded zero privacy. We had to encroach on the neighbors to put out our tiny awning. Further the toilets were overflowing daily and the baths were not clean. The showers cramped my petite body, and my husband could barely fit into them. Quiet hours were not enforced and kids roamed late into the night, smoking, lighting fireworks, and cussing. A woman of mature age walked into the bathroom one night, smacked a beer down on the shelf, used the facilities and walked out. Tacky. I now see why the other campgrounds are booked every night of the summer and this one has tons of vacancies! Steer clear, as we will in the future. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We camped here three years in a row, and each time we ask ourselves why we keep coming back. The staff is so rude and uncaring, and not very helpful at all. The old guy driving in a golf kart was continuously yelling at the little kids, when confronted by an adult he would step off. The pool is only open from 1-7 and when we returned from the beach and wanted to keep swimming we could not, even though it was 90 degrees outside. The advertised shuttle to the beach takes an hour even though the beach is a 10 minute drive. There is no camp store on site, and have to leave to get anything. The game room is old and out dated and needs a serious upgrade. Showers should be free, are $ 0.50 for 5 minutes: unacceptable! If not for its close location to the beaches and other attractions, we would never camp here AGAIN! NEVER! It's not the campsite that is bad, I believe that it is the management.

Small sites in the sun. Two unclean small pools. Hours open 1-7 even though weather was over 90 degrees all day. No urinals in men's room-unsanitary. Rude uncaring employees. No quiet hour. No supervision of the playground or equipment. Playground in direct sun. Constant traffic on large gravel and sand roads. No recycling. Garbage picked up at 4 AM, loud trucks. I-95 nearby. No free shuttle to beach as described in brochure. Area is very nice, Hampton Beach is great, just don't plan to spend much time at the campground or don't plan to sleep. We camped at Black Bear Campground in a Tent Trailer.
