We would give this campground a 10 except for the tiny site. Because the sites are so close, your neighbor's sewer is right by your picnic table. Thank goodness we have no slide outs! Otherwise this is one of the best pools we have been at, two great playgrounds, friendly and helpful staff and so close to a lot of things! Super Walmart is only a mile and a half south on Route 9. Another shopping plaza with Shoprite is a little past that. This is important to us. But getting back to the campground-- the big, exotic birds out in cages on the weekends are so cool. The camp store is really nice, as is the cafe where you can get pizza and ice cream etc. The "game room" is lacking-- just a pool table and maybe an arcade game. BUT there are couches and board games available for rainy days when being in your camper with the kids might get cramped. And I thought their laundry room was the nicest I've ever been to. I enjoyed the seating area outside. A bonus-- they provide bags for and pick up your garbage and recyclables! We WILL come back here for sure - Camping Diva524

Nice park. Stayed for 10 days for family wedding. Crowded during 4th of July week. Front section mostly rv travelers, while back area has some seasonal and lots of tent sites. Great pool with two water slides that my grandkids loved. Personally met the owner and he seemed passionate about having a nice park and especially involved with kids and kids activities. He keeps 5 or 6 large birds (parrots?) onsite and kids loved them Not cheap ( no place at shore is during summer) but would stay here again. - MrMichael

Seems like a tale of two parks. The front area is where they put short term campers and is open and grassy, sparsely shaded and closely spaced between sites. The back area is nicely wooded and seems where they put the long term/permanent users. Good gravel roads but most pads were sand and grass. Sewer and utilities (30/50 amp) worked well and good water. Nice shower/restroom and laundry facilities. Cable has many channels available but you must use a cable box the park provides with a $50 refundable deposit. Saw some batwings up but the manager told me they don't get much. Wifi - don't bother. You pay extra and I paid 1 day for service that seldom worked. The park is very quiet and the owners very friendly and had suggestions for things to see. There are two pools (closed when we were there), playgrounds and game rooms for kids. We stayed for 4 days and took day trips to see the Statue of Liberty, Philadelphia and Long Beach island. There is a Walmart about 1.5 miles to the South. All in all a very nice place I just wish WiFi worked better. - utchaps

This campground is now closed - sold for development. Too bad too - it was the only half way decent campground in the Toms River area. - penguin

Not a very nice campground from what we've been to across the US. Full (30 amp) hookups is all they have going for them. Roads are gravel, filled with pot holes, and narrow with cars parking on each side. Sites are narrow and short for our 40 footer with very close neighbors. Had meters but no breakers at power post. Staff was put out by visiting campers. The park was mostly run down permanent sites. I just don't understand why people own parks like this? Smaller sized three foot deep pool wasn't inviting with kids running from the bouncey house back to the pool. Chickens, ducks and cats running around the park. Garbage left out at sites. The whole atmosphere of the place was just dirty. - Bavoo60

My husband selected this campground since choices near Toms River were limited. We only had 2 nights, and the other campground required a 3 night stay since it was Memorial Day weekend. The campground did put on a nice welcome BBQ Friday evening, which was a nice touch. However, we would not stay here again. Sites were extremely close, and there are many rundown trailers/campers in here. Our neighbors reported a loud argument was going on the night before we arrived, fueled by alcohol or other substances. The island was scary, with power cords running all over the place, and the rust colored stream was barely moving. Three stars for value, service are based on giving consideration to the location. - HelenEllen

Stayed here for three nights while visiting a friend. There aren't many choices in the area. This place is a dump. Mostly long term residents and clearly not a lot of rules regarding accumulation of junk around the campsites. Roads were very narrow and there was little to no signage to help you navigate the park. We ended up going the wrong way and had to unhook our toad in order to back out.
We were given a "pull through" site but had to back out when we left due to very close trees and other resident's cars parked near the front of our rig.
Could not find the water on my site so I hooked into the water on the next site. I had considerable difficulty finding the electric hook-up as well but finally found it on the back of a large sheet of plywood erected between our site and the site next to us. There was no cover over the electric outlet whatsoever.
I wouldn't stay here again. - RosieandThumper

The woman on duty said "cash only" for our 3 night stay, which surprised me. But we ponied up the cash. Finding this place is something of a challenge since it's partially down a dirt road and no signs to lead you to it. Our site was near the regulars because we wanted a SW exposure for our satellite antenna, so we were spared the overnight area, but trees still blocked us, so no TV. Also the sites are very close together and the trailers there look as if they haven't moved in years. Site was level but very sandy and without a rug we were dragging it through the trailer. Bathrooms were clean but rustic. The bottom of the doors on the lady's room stalls were very high and consequently not very private. Showers very well used but clean. - Wendywoods

One of our favorite campgrounds. Approximate 12 miles from Long Beach Island. Nice, friendly, quiet campground (with no scheduled activities). It is located in the Pine Barrens. WARNING: The entrance road is very rough. - artspe

What a wonderful campsite. Very clean and well maintained. There aren't many transient sites, mostly seasonal, but the seasonals are in a section by themselves, with a carded gate entry. All of us transients are together, which is great because you don't have to deal with all of the sheds, decks and fences the seasonals put up.
The staff was accommodating and friendly, especially when we wanted to stay a few hours longer to go to Long Beach Island. It's a short trip to LBI. The site is large with brush in the back. Only 30 amp, and we blew a circuit with our 2 air conditioners. First time this happened at any campground, but the staff came right out and reset the circuit breaker.
You have to back into the dump station, but they have a pump out person that comes around every day. Swimming pool and putt putt. The putt putt needs some work, but it was fine for us to play and spend some time. Will defintely go back! - Kevie

Checked into a premium site. I had no cable TV Friday night. Saturday went to office and was told I needed a cable box. That didn't work either. Water leaked and had to get an extra washer to fit in adaptor. Also on Friday requested to be first pumped out on Sunday, since there is no sewer or dump station. Sunday I was hooked up and ready to go. Had to go find lady to pump me out and she said was never told of my request (which I had double checked Saturday night ). Also went in pool area. Saw hot tub / whirlpool in pics. Was really looking forward to this after 8 hour trip, only to be told by pool attendant he cannot turn on the jets. He isn't allowed. Nice place, but very disappointing. And definitely NOT worth the $$$. - joanner

This park is undergoing long needed renovations under new ownership and the effort is paying off. My score is an "8" but I would not be surprised if it is a "9" soon. The buildings are looking good as are the pool and play areas. Gravel sites share utility pedestal area so campers are close on the "business" side while the living side is large with fire pit, charcoal grill and a picnic table. My site was pretty level but did require use of my Anderson leveler. WiFi and the Honey Truck are included. There are no sewer hook-ups. The seasonal area is separate and most sites show signs of long-time residence. We don't live far away so this may well be a twice a year pre and post busy season trip for us. Staff was excellent and very friendly. - Bandguy

We stayed at this park during the 4th of July. It is a run down trailer park more than an RV.Their are small children running around all day unsupervised with a lake and is very noisy all day and night. While we were there there was a car chase involving two drunks and one of them drove his truck into the lake. Cable did not work, water lines were full of air, bathrooms and showers were filthy, laundry room always flooded and machines not working.The worst was the geese every morning and the tons of crap they left at your campsite. We would not return if it was free. Would not recommend. - scb

We drove through this camp ground. Lots of full time campers with some very old campers. The grounds were not kept up at all. Nice lake. Pot holes in the driveway area that you could lose a small car in. Talked to some locals and they said to stay away due to plenty of drugs and convicts. - Jodee

Wooded park but road noise is evident. Jet traffic into and out of McGuire. A lot of rules (walk dogs only on your site, can't use your washer/dryer, no pitbull or pitbull mixes), seemingly ignored and not enforced. A lot of seasonal sites. Narrow roads, tight turns. Ok for an overnight.
Follow the web site directions rather than the GPS. Roads leading to the campground are good. - jplante4

Great mini golf course, very challenging. The owner was one of the most helpful and accommodating to all our needs. Propane is available upon arrival to park. - Tip Tam

Gravel interior roads and level sand sites. When I first put my jacks down one sunk deep into the sand so I had to move my rig forward a few feet. Park is loaded with trees and roads are narrow but was able to slowly negotiate my MH through many close trees to the roads. Needed 3 sewer links to access the drain connection. There were so many trees I was amazed I got satellite reception. Worker told me only a few sites can do this. Have security gates and picnic table and fire ring at each site. 20 mile drive to shore. - Tom Willing

We stayed two weeks in late September, and our trailer must have been pelted by 1000 acorns (no exaggeration, about 1 every 5 minutes) during our stay, and MANY during a storm one night. We need wifi for our jobs and it was not solid, dropping out 4-5 times per day, sometimes for 15 mins or more, and we were within 50 ft of the access point. Roads and sites are mainly dirt, and they get very messy when it has rained recently. We longed for grass or a better/bigger mat to wipe our feet on. Staff is very nice, and the campground is VERY quiet compared to others on the weekend. Seems like it's about 15 mins to get anywhere except to the gas station, but it's a nice quiet place. - ObjectsInMotion

This campground was recommended to us by our RV tech who had been working on doing some upgrades to our motor home. It did not disappoint. The road in is wide with no overhanging trees. The road to our site was also easy to navigate. And the site we had, one of two pull thru sites was actually almost perfectly level. All utilities were easy to reach making hookup a breeze. There was plenty of room to extend both slides. The WiFi was not working when we first arrived but a call to the office and it was corrected immediately and we never had a problem after that. The staff in the office were pleasant, polite, and professional. The price we felt was high, but since this was our first "shake down" run with our recently purchased motor home we were willing to pay it. We'll definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - William T

This park has really narrow gravel roads; we were told to NOT go one way as i'd hit a tree!! With the number of trees in this park (NOT a resort as the sign advertises) why not just cut it down?? We ended up in the one "pull through" site based on the length of our 41' fifth wheel. Good thing as most of the sites are way too short. Anybody hooking up their trailer as they were leaving? were sticking out into the road so you couldn't pass until he was gone. Dumb! Our "30 AMP" power could not even handle our smaller AC unit, first time in about 50 parks I've been to. I asked a worker who was driving by in a cart, he explained that the owners were "upgrading" the sites to 50 Amp. NOT! there was no sign of any upgrading as I drove through the whole park. The sewer pipe was sticking out of the ground way too high; with my supports under the hose, I still had 4" of uphill climb for my sewer. This park is not worth $63.00; should be in the $30 range. Not impressed with this "resort". - North America in 90 days

*Military and DoD Civilian only* This is a military campground and is open to active military, National Guard, Reserves, and DoD civilians. It's a small campground with 9 spots. The spots all seemed to be level. They do not have any pull-through sites, but the sites are plenty big to accommodate a larger RV. The campground is also very close to the beach that is also a part of the base, and is within walking distance. The bath house is fairly modern and was clean, though we were the only family here that weekend. There is also a playground next to the bathhouse. There's an inlet behind the campground where you can go crabbing or fishing. It's also worth checking out the small National Guard History museum while here as well, as it's free. We will be staying here again. - grim509

We stayed here for a week because of its location. It is the closest campground to the beach in this area of NJ. Having said that, we will probably not stay here again. It is just not designed for a 30' motorhome.
We knew going in there were no hookups, but access to the dump station required contortionist maneuvers. Originally, we were going to use the campground showers and bathrooms, but they were just awful. It was incredibly difficult to get level. This campground is better for small rvs, tents, and pop ups. - Full-Time-RVer

In over 2 years of full timing all over the US where we stay primarily in state parks this is hands down the worst we have been in. It's too bad since there are very few state parks in NJ that will allow RVs over 25' but that was the least of our problems. Add $5/day/pet and $17.50 "service charge" for a campground with no hook ups, no water available (see below) and an unacceptable women's showers. Registration is at a site 3/4 mile BEYOND the entrance to the campground in an area that cannot accommodate large rigs (we are 33' and could not have) The site we reserved (#4) was supposedly big enough for a 33' rig-it was 33'6" long-rutted and sloped, dirt, sand and small branches as a surface; and 11' 9" wide (between trees that would not allow extension of an awning) We were able to change though the site was still sloped-end to end and side to side. First attempt to get water from the pedal operated spigot was unsuccessful. The water spews from the pedal area but not the spigot. 2nd attempt at a further spigot-water still comes from pedal area but also from spigot UNTIL a hose is connected. Then it spews from the pedal area and every other opening on the apparatus-up, down and out, EXCEPT the spigot. The third spigot next to the bathhouse has no water at all. A call to the office brings the "full time maintenance man" within 15 min who proceeds in the face of a pump (#2) apparatus taped from bottom to top, to say "it needs to be fixed." To be fair, he was very nice and took us to the maintenance garage where we were able to fill our tank. The trip to the showers the next morning was as disappointing. 3 showers-2 had only cold and of those 1 no pressure since the shower head. The handicapped shower had warm water for about 10 seconds of the 15 sec push button allotment but ended with lukewarm with water spraying from both upper and lower heads and no control. I don't like to write bad reviews but we could not recommend this place at all. - edc1951

Not sure how this park got such good reviews unless it was for location and/or activities. $25/night (for non-NJ residents) and a $5 reservation fee and no hookups. I have to wonder what they're doing with the money, because it's certainly not campground improvements. The bathrooms are clean but in dire need of updating. Broken shower heads, no shelving in sink area, scratched mirrors, etc. Even though they say bears are active in the area, the dumpster lid was broken in half (perhaps the result of the bears?). I only saw staff in the campground twice (and that was probably for cleaning). Noise from the interstate is audible but bearable. I probably wouldn't stay here again. - MSSW
