1 Park near Clarksboro, New Jersey
May 2016 - $44.00
Philadelphia is a relatively easy commute (12 miles) away so this campground is a mix of summer residents and short timers (like us) who were visiting Philadelphia. As other reviewers wrote: this is a busy campground and is full most nights (spring thru fall) so call and make a reservation. The office (understandably) puts the tourists at the front of the campground and the summer residents are in wider, more heavily-treed sites at the back. We were in one of the front sites (#2) and it was far enough off the highway that traffic noise was not a problem. Front sites are level dirt and gravel, have a picnic table, concrete patio pad, good cable. There is a dog walk area, a small camp store, game room and a swimming pool, Brochure says there is free Wi-Fi near the office, otherwise you must purchase Wi-Fi from a provider. (We have a Verizon hot spot and it worked well.) We will stay here again when we are in the area. The laundry room has 3 washers and dryers. We thought the $2.75 to wash and $1.75 to dry expensive so we went into town - only to discover that there the price was $4.00 + to wash and about $2.00 to dry. - Mom_of_Two

We stayed here for five nights to explore the Philadelphia area. We had a pull thru site with FHUs. The sites were very narrow. I was thankful that our neighbor was not home while we were hooking up as I felt we were invading his space. The sites were some gravel and lots of sand. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but the showers were very substandard. There was no hot and cold knob, but instead a push button on about a one minute time limit. Then you had to push the button again. The water temp was preset at a lukewarm temperature. This might be expected in a park when you pay $15-20/night, but not for $44/night with a GS discount. While it was easy access to I-295, we would not stay here again. - tlcmom

We chose this park because of the proximity to Philadelphia. It was a very easy drive and we made it often as we didn't see much to do in the area of the park. We did enjoy touring the USS New Jersey which is near by, however.
The park is located close enough to I295 that we could get to anything that we wanted (Shopping, Entertainment, Restaurants). It was secluded enough, however, that we could walk our dogs down the road without worrying about a lot of traffic. However steer clear of the neighborhood up the road as they have big signs prohibiting dog walking.
Our site was very narrow. So narrow that we didn't feel that we could use the fire ring or picnic table. In fact our neighbors had to move their picnic table under our slide just to get into their space. I had to re-position our rig several times and still had to use blocks to get it level. Our space had a tree in the way of our awnings that would drop acorns on our roof day and night for the whole time we were there. We noticed it happening on a lot of the sites.
The staff wasn't rude but I wouldn't call them friendly either. They were almost always busy as this park seems to have quite a few people coming and going every day. However, when we needed to extend our stay they were very accommodating.
I must say that if we were traveling back this way we would think twice about staying here again but from reviews of other parks in the area we would most likely end up here anyway.
At $42 per night, it just seemed a little expensive for the amenities. - Frisco Wolffman
