4 Parks near Cape May Court House, New Jersey
May 2015 - $92.00
My family and I have been camping for over 18 years. We have been to over 10 or more different campgrounds around PA and NJ. I have two major complaints about this place. One is that the bathrooms were very dirty at all different times of the day, the floors were always wet and muddy and trash was all over the place. Second is that the manager walks around at 11:05 p.m. and tells everyone to turn OFF their radios. I have never experienced this at any other campground I have been to. I always thought that "quiet hours" were meant to be considerate and courteous towards other campers. Here, it seems that quiet hours mean time to go to bed. My wife and I were listening to music on our cell phone at a very low volume and the owner insisted that we turn it off altogether. One more thing to mention and think about before camping here is that the campground consisted of almost 80%-90% Mexican/Brazilian campers. There is a large tenting section in the back of the campground which the sites were right on top of each other. It was like "Tent City". To sum it up, the biggest negative of this campground is the manager walking around at 11:00 p.m. and telling people that it was basically time to go to bed.

This is one of the worst campgrounds that we have stayed at. The bathrooms were filthy. The sites are small. Very few full hook up sites and only a few water & electric with 30/50 amp. This campground is more for tent's or pop ups. You only could get Wi-Fi in the office or by the pool.This campground is loud and noisy. The store was fairly well stocked with almost everything you would need. That's the only good thing about this park. I definitely would not stay here again. - ty1spooky2

Even though the staff was very friendly and accommodating, the campground was terrible. It was noisy all day and night, there is little privacy between campsites, and the children's playground is in need of repair. It was like camping in a parking lot with a few trees spread throughout. We could see every neighbor on every side with no seclusion. At night they had karaoke in the activity center, which was extremely loud and could be heard throughout the entire campground. There was no escape. On our way out of the campground we were held up in a line of traffic as some campers got into a fight with the gate attendant. Needless to say, we wouldn't return to the campground. - smdc

Big Timber Lake (Sun RV Resort), Cape May Courthouse, NJ $25 with PPA for water and electricity 542 sites May 4, 2015
We stayed for two nights at this campground and with PPA at $25 for water, electric, wifi and cable we got our money's worth. There are 542 sites - many seasonal and a lot of modular units. The campground is located off route 9 in Cape May Courthouse in a wooded area and away from all the traffic of the Jersey shore yet driving to Cape May, Wildwood and other Jersey shore destinations is about twenty min away. Since it was the first week in May there were very few people here so it was peaceful. The campground has showers (25 cents), heated pool, store, wood, dog park, restaurant, pavilion, game room, laundry, computer lounge, LP gas, dump station, horseshoes, bath Houses, fishing pier, volleyball, playground, bocce ball, basketball, shuffleboard, mini golf, a new rope course and kayaks. The owners and manager were very friendly and working hard to keep this massive campground all in tiptop shape. Since we don't tow with our 25.2 ft Fleetwood Sprinter RV they gave us great suggestions for where to go and park around the area. There are many notices that an RV can't drive down Beach Street in Cape May but the manager called the police for us and said it was untrue - we just can't park on the street. We were able to park at the Lobster House and had a very enjoyable lunch outside next to the docks and fishing boats in Cape May. We definitely would camp here again especially if we were taking the Cape May Ferry on our travels. Well worth a stop! - gsnakehill

Loved this RV Park. One of the nicest and cleanest I have ever been to. Great staff, fabulous miniature golf and having a swimming lake plus a pool was fabulous. Great location also. Will definately go back. - cancellm

All around nice park. Very clean bathrooms and showers, showers are 25 cents per 5 minutes. Sites are a mixture of sand, dirt, and grass. Lots of trees and most spots are shady. They have Wi-Fi, but you need a code for a free day of access. Nice lake swim area and very nice pool, but no chairs, so bring your own. Also have a fishing lake. A lot of seasonals, but mainly in one area. They do allow golf carts for their seasonal renters. Store was pretty well stocked but it was end of season. Make sure your site is clean, there is a neighborhood skunk that roams at night and I met him while sitting around the fire at night. Didn't get sprayed, but he seemed to be used to people so beware. Close to most shore areas (Wildwoods, Cape May, Avalon). Would stay here again. - acenorm

This is a great campground, located very strategically for visiting the best shore points. The staff are very efficient and professional, the facilities are clean and very well kept, the sites are pretty spacious. Our site had 4 small pieces of litter but we had arrived early so I expect they would have been cleaned up otherwise.
Seasonal campers definitely dominate the population, and Canadian campers make up a large portion of the transient population; everyone we met was friendly.
The pools are co-located and had a life guard for both. There were many families and the kids all behaved appropriately with plenty of room for our kids to play.
The roads were a bit narrow, but that meant there is plenty of tree cover.
The green head flies from the nearby marsh could be a real pain, but only affected us one day. Apparently this depends on the wind direction.
The marshlands that surround both of the camp locations have greater bird watching opportunities.
We checked out another local mega-campground; it had more amenities but it was too big for us to be sure we knew where are kids would be. It had a lot of golf carts for permanent sites which is a turn off as well. We saw no carts at Nummy.
The bathrooms at King Nummy were exceptionally clean. They charge 25 cents for a 5 minute shower which was plenty of time for me. A quick rinse shower is in the bath house but you have to hold the handle.
We will go to King Nummy again. - ArEfBee

This is a great park. Full hookups, clean and not overcrowded ! The location is perfect... you're less than 20 minutes from Cape May, Wildwood Stone Harbor. The park itself is very family oriented with lots of friendly people. The location might lend to biting bugs at times given conditions but this came and went. I really appreciated the clean bathrooms / I don't mind feeding quarters into a shower meter if the bathrooms are clean! - Jim and Ben

This a great family run campground. From the time you stop in the office to register to the time you leave you can be sure that the owners will be there for your every need or to take care of any problems you may have. From their well stocked store, great swimming pools and clean bath and showers. Weather you are one of the seasonal residents or just there for a week or two rest assure you will have good time. This was the host site for the Annual King Nummy Trail Horseshoe Tour. for 20 years. All of the campers and participants want to Say THANK YOU to all those who helped for your support of this event each year. See you all soon. From the Back Yard Boys - skiphen

We make an annual visit to Shellbay Campground and are never disappointed. The bathrooms and showers ($.25/4 min) were clean and uncrowded. The pool and hot tub were clean and refreshing. This is truly a family friendly campground. My children always meet new friends at the pool. They enjoy biking around the paved roads. They also enjoy the activities offered at the campground: Bingo Night, Sunday Church Services, the Cancer Fair (raise money for research), etc. I have been coming every summer for 40+ years and it gets better each year. - dmaerz

Pool was great, has water slide that kids loved, along with spa pool and kiddie pool. Playground was ok, was nice that they have toys to play in sand with. Also has basketball and tennis courts and bocce ball area. No scheduled activities. Mostly seasonals, but everyone was friendly and quiet. Roads were narrow (should be made one way streets in my opinion). Sites were nice and shady on sand/grass but were oddly positioned. - happytrails76

Every time we come to Shellbay Campground, we expect to spend a lot of time at the beach and some time at the campground. However, we enjoyed the amenities at Shellbay so much, we spent most of our days there. The large pool is great with a kiddie pool, hot tub, slide, and plenty of space to lay out. The kids enjoy swimming and playing. They also enjoy the playground and just riding their bikes around the campground. A new addition this year is a community bike path 1/4 mile from the campground entrance. This paved path allowed us to ride our bikes 2.8 miles to the Camp May County Zoo. The staff at Shellbay are always friendly and seek to make your stay memorable and pleasant. We have been coming here for years and find the campground better each time we come. - dmaerz
