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. - travlinfamily

Beware. My family and I stayed there Memorial Day weekend. We arrived on Friday and we were so unhappy we left Saturday even though we were supposed to stay until Monday.The park is in very poor shape with most seasonals who don't maintain their sites. Our electric kept going out to the point where we couldn't really use the A/C. The facilities where very dirty and the camp store was empty for the most part. I guess there's no quiet time as the radios where blaring late into the night and complaining didn't help. We will never stay there again. Guess I should have looked at reviews here first. - Tred66

Tired and neglected. Looks like this could have been a great camp ground decades ago. Water slide, mini golf, lake...all of which looked forgotten. Most sites were over grown. A good deal of seasonal campers; a few of their sites were nice, but most weren't. It wouldn't be a place we I'll return to or recommend to others. - Lisa and tom

Unfortunately this campground is in decline due to the death of the husband and the poor health of the wife. Virtually no activities. The seasonals are leaving and transients are nonexistent. While the other campground, a short drive away is packed. - GlennNJ

I almost don't want to tell you how great a time we had here. This is the most quiet park we have been too. And I don't want to spoil it. The site we had was HUGE!!! Everything worked perfect for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The store was much better than I expected and I saw TV cable for more half the price I had to pay at our previous campground. It rained very heavy this week end and water drained off the site without a problem. We most definitely will be returning. PS if you have a noisy bunch please don't stay here. - GlennNJ

Rate reflects 2 extra kids at $5 each. Overall a nice campground. All facilities are nice, but a little on the older side. Planned activities for the kids. The store had the basics for a campground. Every time we have been here it was very quiet at night. Only negatives were the water pressure was a little low and the grass needed to be cut. (It was a holiday weekend.) This was our third time here and we definitely will be going back. - v3coinshooter

Whippoorwill raised the price this year, which isn't so bad for the proximity to OCNJ. The service and cleanliness are still top notch. We have been staying here for a number of years and, now that I have a larger camper, I must say that the trees and signs located on the very edges of every road make for a hazardous finale to our trek to Whippoorwill. It is stressful to tow in the park and backing in can be a challenge (to be kind) in some spots. I had to request a site change, as Site 18 is a bear to land our 28' travel trailer. Beach tag rental is a nice option, but I was none too pleased to be charged for an extra day when I turned them in at my checkout day/time. Apparently, they are due by 9am and 11am on checkout day nets you a one an additional days rent. In the end it was an extra $6, but I hate being "nickel and dimed" for something that I do not recall being told. Thankfully the ridiculous gates were out of service again, as seems to be the case on every visit. This time they removed the turnstiles. So, at least safety, was restored. Whippoorwill is a fine campground, but I think it is time to shop around for future visits. - rvparkreviews_cc

A heavily wooded campground conveniently located near Ocean City, NJ. Staff quite friendly, although male teenager who escorted us to our site was useless - didn't speak a word of advice or guidance while we parked the RV. A large quality pool, recreation area and snack bar are available. We'll be back. - Lancaster Camper

Short hop over the 34th Street bridge to Ocean City NJ. Very level, all sand sites...of course it's South Jersey.
Service is excellent.
Mostly seasonal, but they are so well kept that it makes for very enjoyable long walks around the campground.
Off-island camping is always buggy in the summer. Asian Tiger mosquitoes will get you during the day. Be prepared.
Olympic size pool is open to the public (for a fee) and it is fun to watch the kids swim team practice.
Everything that you need is nearby and it is nice to leave the beach and avoid the crowds at the end of your day. They rent beach tags which is very helpful and save a lot of money. Bring cash as you will need to leave large deposit for beach tags and key cards. But, it's nice to have that back in your pocket for your return home.
The only complaint that I have is with their turnstiles for entry and exit. They often malfunction. On our last trip, the power went out. Thank God for 12V battery and a tank full of fresh water. But, the turnstiles failed and there was no way to enter or exit the campground. Now, that's a small inconvenience for a vacationer. But, if an ambulance or fire truck must wait for someone in the office to run down and manually remove the turnstile, then there could be a dangerous situation. They really need to remove these stupid turnstiles, or at least the exit turnstile. It really doesn't serve much purpose other than to annoy. - rvparkreviews_cc

I stayed here for four days. Was the closest RV Park to Atlantic City beach and boardwalk. I would've gave them a higher star rating but their bathrooms needed to be updated a little bit. It is very rustic, lots of shade, Park was barely occupied. Would certainly stay here again. One member of staff very helpful for checking in. - Denise M Smith

We booked this park as our first RV trip for the season. They advertised as being newly renovated from their previous owner (Blueberry Hill RV Park). When we arrived, we went into the office expecting to see a camping store (as advertised on their website). The store consisted of 4 shelves on a wall with minimal RV items, and a few freestanding snack racks with junk food. No bread, milk, or other items you would expect. I would not call this a "store". We were then lead to our site by a staff member. BTW... Their staff were very friendly (a plus for them). As we passed the pool, we noticed that is was NOT an Olympic sized pool. This again, was in contradiction to their website. Once in our site, we started looking for the "Private Gate to Wal-Mart" as advertised on their website. This gate did not exist for this campground. When we questioned it at the office, we were told that the description used is for their sister campground in Florida. I believe this is false advertising. As for their Activities... My son went to participate in their dodgeball game. No one showed up. Not even their staff came. So much for activities. I went to use their WiFi... It was not free. I would have had to pay (chose not to). Final straw was their sewer system. I did my final dump before leaving. Their system clogged up and I ended up flooding three sites next to me.
Once again... Their staff were very friendly. This is the only reason I'm giving them 3 stars rather then 1.
I would NOT visit here again. Sorry Atlantic Blueberry. You need to update your website to be more truthful. - Davetheroamer

This campground is being updated but it is still nice. The sites are level grass sites and many are pull-through with cable. The 50A sites do not have sewer but do have a gray water hookup with a water hose connection but it backed up the couple of times we tried to use it. They do have a daily pump out service if you sign up before noon. The park has a huge pool and hot tub but the hot tub was out of service. They have free Wi-Fi at the office and very fast pay Wi-Fi at the sites. The host are very nice and helpful and they have several activities going on during the weekends. We would stay here again. - dandg

My wife and I were escorted to our site by two nice gentlemen. They helped us back into site. Only problem was after setting up went to office and following one way signs I wasn't able to make a sharp right turn with just my truck. I asked about getting out at office and the manager was unhappy with the national reservations for putting us in this site because of the difficulty getting out, we wound up backing up out of the area with some assistance. Pool looked very clean and nice but too cold to use that night. Overall impression very nice and we will return. - GlennNJ

One of our favorites, a no frills campground with all the amenities you need. Everything was clean, the pool was fun. There were a lot of bugs and our site was a little cramped. A smaller trailer would fit nice where we were. Nothing much else to say about this place but we love coming here and will be back. - Jellystar

This is no longer a Yogi Bear Jellystone Park. I have stayed at this campground many years and have watched the deterioration right in front of my eyes. Since the takeover by a major corporation, the park has looked trashy. This year, though, it looked better. Most of the larger and shady sites have seasonal campers on them, leaving most of us that camp overnight in the sun. The Nascar arena is very nice but in the late afternoon and early evening hours the sun is shining right on the screen. Most of the time there was not any trash pickup. I had to dispose of it myself. The web homepage of this campground is very deceiving, most of the pictures are not from this campground. I have since changed my home campground to a different one. I decided to chose quality over quantity. I can live without all of the additional amenities for a weekend or a week and enjoy my camping experience without hassles. - niacmas

Now that I have returned from our weekend, I realize I should have read reviews before booking the place. We came here specifically for Mother's Day activities. Many of these were cancelled. Not enough staff? I saw quite a few staff members on the grounds. My kids said the activities were not real good and they felt rushed. The hayride was lame. The site we were registered for was impossible for us to get to with our 31' trailer. The roads were very narrow and near impossible to navigate through. It was not a problem to change to a better site. Camp store not very well stocked. Although this was not the best experience, we might return again when the pool is open. The playground was lots of fun. |Maybe more activities when the park is full. This weekend was mostly regulars with some of the kids thinking they run the place. - autismmom

Great little local campground. Very small but has a beautiful pool and lots of activities for the kids. Has good snack bar at the pool.
The seasonal folks are very friendly as are all of the staff. Not a big Nature trail type place, just good for a nice weekend and some horseshoes. Mostly very flat so biking is easy, stone roads though. They have some pull through premiums near the pool, but not too close.
We go at least once per year here. - NJPerry

Clean, level campground with a number of seasonal sites. Friendly owners who offer wagon rides for the kids. The biggest problem are the bathhouses which need attention. Push button shower only gets warm and shuts off quick, plenty of cobwebs and leaves in unheated shed. - travelin' guy

We continue to return to this campground and will now return more frequently. Although our site was large, unfortunately, there was only one tree. However, we were still able to find enough sun. The pool is large with a snack bar on the deck. Twice daily hayrides and activities continue to even keep my teens busy. Staff is friendly and helpful. No problems with noise from seasonals on this holiday weekend. There were little teeny tiny kids running all over, unsupervised, through sites, etc. This problem was addressed by staff and rules for the wagon ride changed due to this. Kids under 5 need supervision. Not unreasonable to me. Seasonals are always friendly and enjoy watching my children grow each year. Nice playground as well. My only problem was the kids running through campsites, unsupervised at the pool, and the toddlers running amok. - autismmom

P/A discount only accepted Monday-Thursday. Above rate reflects some days with P/A some with regular rate. Management always accommodating and friendly. As another poster noted water is plentiful but high iron. Would have no problem staying here again. - phyllen

This was a last minute reservation and the owner couldn't have been nicer. The park is made up of mostly seasonal campers but it was well maintained, quiet and friendly. Our site was part sandy-part gravel and was level. The only negatives were: sites were small but since we didn't have anyone next to us on one side, it wasn't a huge issue and the water was very hard. We had a water filter but towards the end of the trip I could smell the iron on my skin. A trip to the laundry room confirmed the high mineral content in the water as the washing machines were rust colored (we ended up not using them). Other than that we had a great time there as a base camp while visiting the shore sites. The owner and the seasonal campers were really really nice. I went to the store to see if I could buy a 1/2 gallon of milk. The owner was speaking with a seasonal guest and when he apologized for not having any in stock, the seasonal guest offered to pick some up for me on her way back from an errand. Another seasonal guest helped us back into our site. It was a really nice stay and both my husband and myself said we would go back there if in the area. - DeannaS

Beautiful park with friendly staff. Gravel and Grass with level pull in and back in sites. Good hookups. Lots of trees. Close to restaurants and beaches. Many seasonal RVs that in early May looked forlorn. This is our first time camping in New Jersey and now know that seasonal camping is the norm and we were probably at this camp before the seasonal campers come in to set up for the summer. The people were friendly and we wish we could have stayed longer. - JanneC

We stayed here travelling north from Virginia to Maine. RV parks are scarce along the route, especially after reading some of the reviews here. So we didn't mind a 20 minute detour off of the interstate to find a nice park. We were not disappointed. This is a resort park, with lots of activities and facilities, and is reflected in the price. We were looking for something private and quiet for our night, and the staff readily accommodated us by placing us in a site far from the pools and playgrounds. The site was large and quiet. The seasonal units were all well taken care of and neat. The only detractions were no WiFi, and the water connection was at the front of the site, so I had to be careful to position my unit but still needed 50' of water hose forward and 20' of sewer hose back. Word of warning: the rural drive to the park is not well signed and the county won't let the park put any up. The GPS was invaluable. We would return. - bigdipper

We selected this park based on one thing, it was close to Cowtown and we wanted to go to the Rodeo. We are so happy with this park that we are already looking forward to next year so we can go again. The sites are Large and for the most part seem pretty level. We did not have a concrete pad or patio at our sites, but so what? We had two adjacent sites for the weekend and could easily have parked two additional rigs in the sites with us! We had decent water pressure, Cable was excellent. The store had the basics as well as a few special items. There is a really nice water park/wet park here for the kids. The pool seemed very nice although we didn't use it, the pool hours are nice, 10am til 8pm. The Yogi Bear parks do one thing that I find especially nice, At 9am Yogi, Boo-Boo or Cindy along with a "Ranger" comes out an raises the Flag and leads the assembled campers in the Pledge. At 6pm they lower the flag after again leading the campers present in the Pledge. In the morning two of the young campers are selected to help raise the flag. In the evening two more are picked to help lower the flag and then they properly fold the flag. There was this week a DJ and a contest to win prizes by naming songs and artists. There were other activities as well. We didn't take part in most as we were there for the Rodeo and the Cowtown Flea Market. This is a great place to stay if you are in the area. - blues traveler

We camped here on Easter Weekend and there were several activities for the kids and adults alike. The campground had several guests, but there was no problem with noise. The playground is adequate for the kids. We didn't get to use the water facilities as it was too early in the season, but they looked like fun. The staff was very nice. You need to be buzzed into the gate and when the "Ranger Station" is busy, you may have to wait awhile. The sites were clean, but they are all dirt as are the roads. Very dusty. The store has some basic supplies, but anything other than that you have to travel at least 7 miles to the nearest department store. The usual golf carts are buzzing around, but it didn't seem to be an issue. What was an issue were the regular vehicles that didn't seem to care that several people were walking around as they drove way too fast. The bathrooms were clean and we didn't see any shower rooms to comment on. We would return here to experience the summer activities. - Jellystar

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. - travlinfamily

We found this to be a fun place to camp . It is a true campground nicely shaded with trees and a beautiful shallow river running right along side of it . Yes there are a few older seasonal trailers there but they do not dominate the scenery and all the seasonal campers we met were nice folks . Pool, showers, playground, and the whole campground were clean . A good place for families . Your kids will have a good time . - GDM

This park is an older, well-maintained campground with owners who still care about their park, their customers and still give their campers breathing room to have fun. It may not have the technical amenities or the full-time babysitting activities that some campers like, but you can enjoy both worlds of camping; the busy activity weekends and/or the slower back-to-nature weekdays where you can enjoy nature, the river, or venture out for side trips including the beach, the boardwalk, or the excitement of the casinos. I have found Winding River-Mays Landing to be one of the few parks left in the area that still welcome the average camper. - niacmas
