The Passport discount for 2 of the 3 nights allowed. I wouldn't think this park is good value at $55 a night. They don't have a clue on what sites can fit a 41' 5th wheel. We were given 183; I made it in but reeeal tight. Now considering there were over 100 sites open for all 3 nights they certainly could've given me a better fit to get in. I shouldn't have told them I have PA when I booked, I should've got a good site first then told them I'm PA. The hookups are at the back of sites; my cable wasn't long enough. Water was good. Roads a little tight for big rigs. 15 minutes from Cape May. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I would suggest that the two poor reviews here might reflect more on the reviewers and not the location. I called for a same day reservation and was told I could have my choice upon arrival. Being early in the season, we pretty much had the choice of any of the W/E sites. Yes, there are permanent model homes here but for the most part, the overnight spots are separate from them and closer to the main office, bath house, pool, etc. Very nice spot in a good location. As for the shower charge, if I was paying full price and not Passport America, I'd be a tad miffed but since no NJ state parks offer hookups, I can overlook that. Also, I found the staff to be quite nice and polite. One of the ladies even found us one of their old stickers for our trailer! We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Second time staying at Big Timber. Check in takes quite a bit of time by front desk staff, and road can back from all units waiting to get in. Site 187 was mix of grass and sand; and very small width wise but was deep however the back end of the site dropped off so couldn't back RV to far back. Pool was crowded most of the days due to the heat; however it was never over crowded and always were able to find a place to relax in it. Kids enjoyed the lake and activities they provided. Location of campground is pretty much center of Cape May County so if you plan to leave the campground to explore there are plenty of options within a short car ride. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

In the last couple of years this park has been sold and is owned by one of those large companies that buy up campgrounds. When privately owned, this campground was a pleasure to stay in. Now it's a nightmare.

First, entering and being searched by security. I guess they need to make sure you aren't bringing in wood, but the way the guy acted you would've thought he was looking for a cache of weapons and a truck of drugs! We were a family that obviously had none of the above, but didn't even get a hello. He then visually inspected the inside of our truck and counted the people in it. His attitude is what made it creepy.

Pull over there and go inside. That was the direction given to us. We did and found a mildly chaotic office; nothing out of the norm. People checking in, buying stuff, etc. Our turn came up and we were again not met with a hello but a big ole eye roll. Ok, give me the map and let us get on our way.

Our site was not pond front, but was very tight for the 30 foot trailer. Extremely tight on the left and right. Our site had not been cleaned up from the prior campers and had beer cans, juice boxes, and smoldering logs in the fire pit.

I do not remember ever have an issue with the water at this campground, but the smell, even with a filter on the trailer was absolutely awful. Pure sulfur.

The restrooms were no better and what made them worse is they were dirty. It looks like they only clean them once a day. The staff acts as though you are bothering them, and there is NO SECURITY at night leaving the place loud, with people running all over. Awful, expensive stay. Will never return or ever stay at another place owned by this company. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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! We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

This campground is in a good location to explore Cape May but, because of the tight turns and overhanging trees, this would be a difficult park for new big rig drivers. The entry way into the park is narrow with a brick pillar on each side so swing wide with your big rig when going in. Our 40ft Class A was fine on all roads leading to the park so you can avoid the tolls on the New Jersey turnpike. It is a large campground but only about half the sites are available to RVers for rent and the rest are occupied by permanent travel trailers. Of those sites to rent, two thirds are full hookups and the rest are power and water sites only. The roads in the park are hard packed gravel and the sites are level grass and gravel with a nice space for your table, chairs and fire ring. The trees are great for shade but make it nearly impossible to get your satellite to work. Sprint phone barely showed a bar and our hot spot was like dial-up at best. Bathrooms are large and clean but the showers were coin operated. Laundry room, pavilion, office and pool were all clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are a multitude of planned activities and there is a snack bar near the pool that serves fast food and ice cream. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Lovely campground with excellent amenities. The site was large and level with full hookups. There is a store with a bit more than the basics and reasonably priced. There is a swimming lake as well as a fishing lake. They have a mini golf course which was the best I've ever seen at a campground. The bathrooms and laundry facilities were immaculate. The hosts of this campground were extremely hospitable and that was very much appreciated! Without a doubt, we will return. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful campground with lots of amenities to choose from. We camped here with our three children and two dogs in our 30 RV. The sites were wide and offered nice privacy. Their were lots of activities planned out daily for the kids. Both showers and bathrooms were clean. The only drawback is that the office staff could be rude and short at times to both us and witnessed to others. This has become our favorite campground.

Real nice place. Met 4 other families with kids and now we're planning trips together. Very clean bath and restrooms. Nice for guests to drop by for 1hr without charge. Didn't like the Wi-Fi 45 minute time limit. Many French Canadians on grounds. Most don't speak English so cross your fingers. We were lucky to have great neighbors on the lake front. Free coffee in the morning. Trash pickup every day was nice. Plenty of activities for the kids, very secure campground. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I have to say that this is a fantastic campground. The people are very friendly. We had four small dogs, and everyone was very friendly towards them. The bath houses were spotless. There is plenty to do for kids of all ages. We camped with another adult only party and had two very quiet spots. There are a lot of seasonal campers, but they are very friendly. I would have rated a 10, but the only negative was the fact that the seasonals all have golf carts and some do not follow the one way rule. The pool was kept very clean. I would definitely return.

We really liked this campground. It was off season, so it was quite empty when we came here. The sites aren't level, but it didn't take much to level out our unit. There are way TOO MANY holly trees. I couldn't count the times I stuck my fingers while playing with our dog. Pay showers which was also disappointing. Cable was very snowy. In general though, a very nice campground.

We stayed here for three nights with our daughter, son-in-law and their one-year old and six year old. All in our 34' Bounder... 'nuff said. The park is very nice. The sites are well laid out with a good mix of seasonal and transient areas. Roadways are wide enough for even the biggest rigs to navigate. We saw several 5'ers that were huge even next to our motorhome. Bring your leveling jacks, though, as not all sites are perfectly level. Bathrooms, laundry and shower areas that we used were clean and well done. Camp store is well stocked, but typically expensive. Nice pool, two lakes, one for swimming, one for catch-and-release fishing. Couple or three playground areas. Activity room, etc, as described on their website. Lots of kids buzzing around on golf carts, but we didn't run across any delinquents. Overall, a nice place to stay, but make sure you have transportation; outside of the park, there's not much within walking or even bicycling distance. We camped at Big Timber Lake Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
