We stayed here for two weeks, including over Labor Day, and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Upon arrival at the gate, we were given a welcome packet with our site number and information on where the office is to check in after setting up. When you arrive, you will pull in through a large building which is the ID check. Stay in the right lane, since the left is for commercial deliveries. The sites are long and paved and very easy to back into, but the connections are not placed in the best spots. The power pedestal is located at the back of the pad, and was a stretch for the length of our cable, so check your power cable before you park. The sewer connection is the worst I've ever seen, it is located in the middle of the pad right under where our axels were. I had to crawl under the axels to connect the sewer, and had to remove part of the piping from the plug because it was sticking up four inches high. That aside, everything else was great.
It was quiet and you have enough room to not be on top of your neighbors. Although we did have an issue with one neighbor who had guests over and blocked our parking access, so I had to go ask them to move, even though they were sitting outside and watched us pull up and still did nothing until I asked. The utilities worked well, no cable TV, but over the air channels were fine and wifi is standard Navy GoWifi. The laundry room has three washers and dryers and all worked well. It was perfectly located to visit our family and be able to catch the train to NYC. There is no commissary or exchange on base, but a Super Walmart is about 10 minutes away, and I recommend visiting Delicious Orchards just up 34 for great baked goods, fruits, vegetables and deli meat. The base is small, but we still had plenty of areas to walk our dogs without worrying about traffic.
Aside from the connection locations, it is a very nice campground and we would definitely return. - pfogleboch

Very nice and clean. No frills but new Bath/Laundry. No pull throughs, but manageable. 100% ID check - if you are sponsored by an active or retired member, that member Must escort you through security, either in your vehicle or in another vehicle ahead of you. This is a weapons station and the security is airtight.. Be very watchful for deer, they are everywhere and not afraid of vehicles. Café and mini NEX, no gas, on site near RV area. Great MWR with pool, Gym playgrounds everywhere. - The Ear Vinery

Very basic campground for military of all types. Very neat and clean. Laundry and restroom facilities extremely tidy. No frills but would stay again. Large concrete pads. ID check every time you enter. Felt very safe and secure. Police patrol regularly 24/7. - Angelia

Very glad to have discovered this park. My daughter lives in Aberdeen NJ and I'm glad to have a place to park the RV while visiting her. This park has a marvelous network of trails through the pine barren woods and around the pond. There are playgrounds and beaches (although while I was there it was a little chilly to swim).
The campsites are well separated and quite large. The water hookup is shared so if you want to leave it hooked up you will probably need a second hose. There is no sewer at the campsites but a good dump station is available.
The place gets really busy on the weekends, but you get it to yourself during the week. - Clyndes

We arrived after a good rain and our site was pretty soupy. We saw some with standing water. All sites are "parallel" pull-through which put our rig, particularly the awning, in danger of being snagged by trees. The site was not level. - exceltraveler

Good local spot run through county parks. Sites have good spacing and are pull through. Dump station in seperate location.
No pool, but there is fishing, playground, and other activities. We did one night stay. Great Adventure is not far away. - Jerseyboy

This is an older, heavily wooded RV Park a couple miles from town. The landscaping is hit or miss, with dirt and sand mix roadways throughout. The numerous trees made it very difficult to maneuver our 30' travel trailer into our cramped site; moreover, they held dripping water which continued to drip onto the trailer all night long. The site itself was not level, and would have required two Lego blocks if we had bothered (we were only staying one night.). Sewer connection on our unlevel site was so high as to virtually prevent draining. There is a small camp store with a few essentials. Staff was polite but not exactly warm. We had no issues with cable TV (70 channels), but WiFi was so slow (0.1 Mbps, unsecured) as to be all but useless. For the money, this park is highly overvalued. - Llando88

Just a note that I stayed here for a month, which is the reason for the low rate. The nightly rate is much higher - about double. If I had to pay the nightly rate, my score for Value would be much lower.
The bathrooms were not clean. There were only two women's showers for the whole campground and you had to walk through the changing area of one to get to the other. Definitely wear shoes in the shower.
I spent quite a bit of time doing a thorough cleaning of the site, including removal of broken glass.
The staff was generally helpful but I would not call them friendly.
There was decent separation between the sites. Many of the sites are nicely wooded, but not the one I was in. There's an area for big rigs which is open and grassy.
The roads and the sites in the campground are essentially sand. The roads are rutted and turn into rivers when it rains. You're constantly tracking sand/dirt into the RV.
The wifi is useless. The laundry is $3.25 for a wash, and $3.25 for a dry, which is way too high.
Overall, it wasn't an awful place, but it wasn't great, either. If I have a choice, I will not stay here again. - CamperChris4

This was our 2nd visit here. We weren't crazy about it the first time and even less so this time. The entry road is dirt with lots of large holes. It would be in your best interest to obey the 5 mph signs. The interior roads are no better. The pool was very clean but showed a few signs of neglect. The store was also good and pretty well stocked. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. The sites were small and very sandy, it was virtually impossible to keep sand out of the camper. The bathrooms and showers were clean but in need of updating. All in all it's not a bad place but I doubt if we'll be staying here again. - VinnyP

$25 plus a $5 transaction fee for walk-ins.
This is a New Jersey State park without hookups but it does have bathhouse with showers which need to be updated. There are only about 55 sites and the ones in the field can take large motor homes but most of the others within the trees and low branches were not a good choice except for those RV's like ours less than 26ft. No pets allowed in the campground but this might change in the next few years. There are hiking trails here and the best part is that the Allaire Village Historic Site is right next to the Park Office. At this time of year they are only open on weekends and charge $5 to park after Memorial Day, yet we parked in there and visitors are allowed and encouraged to walk around all the restored Howell Iron Works Company, Railroad, picnic area and its village. Interesting history! The General Store is open most of the year and the store keeper told us about the history of this village. Some of the buildings were open to look into but with gates up. In the summer interpreters dressed in clothing of that time walk around and answer any questions. There is a Visitor Center with exhibits and many programs offered throughout the summer. It was a beautiful when we were here and we enjoyed our one night stay at this State Park and would return. - gsnakehill

*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

This is a good park, for the area. It is hard to find a decent park in the area (resort style). My main con here is the price and some things connected to the price ($59). I was pretty much forced by management to pay for 50 amp even though I have 30 amp, he said because I am using both ACs. I tried to explain that many RVs use 30 amp and run both ACs. Finally, I realized I was beating my head against a wall. Also, after you pay your high price, if you want to do laundry it is 2 bucks a pop, I feel this is high. The showers are pay showers. The bathroom area is tight with no AC, not that big a deal, but lets the bugs in since door always open. I also extended one more day to make it a full week and was not given the weekly rate. Also, there are many junky old rundown moldy trailers in here. I don't mind full timers at all, I almost am one, but wow, keep things in a semi state of clean/repair. The pros, #1 Big Sites! Nice Shade. Pretty clean. Better than average WIFI, but not great. We had a tent set up for the kids, so they let you do that, nice. Good pool area, would be nice if they had a hot tub for the price. - queeksdraw

We have no idea how this campground got so many great reviews. Pros – woman in office is very, very nice. Now the cons – sites are tight – yes, they are wide, but not deep. Roads are tough to maneuver with a big rig as well. Sites are dirt, not grass. Sites are incredibly close together – so close that we are 5-feet from five different rigs – can’t believe this passes fire code. Lots of seasonals and their sites illustrate such. Lots of people very loud late into the evening – quiet hours do not start until 10:45. HUGE piles of bagged garbage in and around dumpsters that have not moved in days. Lots of rules – i.e. – no use of personal washers and dryers. Our favorite (note sarcasm) – dogs cannot be walked off ones site. What? Yes, that’s right. You can walk your dog in your dirt site, but not on any road. The owner offered that we can drive the ½ mile to her house, park, and walk the dog there, but seriously – we can’t even walk out the gate!?! When we asked why, we were told that there were too many “dog issues” and this is what her insurance company said to do. She wants to still be considered “dog friendly” since so many people travel with dogs, therefore they technically allow dogs, but you just can’t walk them in the campground. So basically, it’s a financial decision, as she’d have to turn away too many people who travel with their dogs. In three years of fulltiming, this is one of the few campgrounds that we would not stay in again – even if it wasn’t for their bizarre dog policy. Finally, a very “trailer park” feel, not campground. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to help make you feel welcome. The park is a quiet, family friendly campground close to lots of attractions. It is clean and well kept and I will definitely return. - SteveAZ

We stayed here for a weekend while visiting Six Flags. This is a small campground. Pull thru sites were OK but all other sites were very small and would not have accommodated our motorhome. Wifi and cable were good (and free). Pool was nice. Bathrooms were very clean and looked pretty new. Campground was a 15 minute drive to Six Flags. Lots of restaurants nearby and also close to outlets. We'll definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - Bonnie66

This park was a pleasant surprise. We needed a two night stop to visit relatives in area. Our site was very large #48. The common areas were well maintained. Has a gorgeous pool (although we had no time to use) hours 10 am - 6 pm. Bathrooms very clean. Camp store well stocked w/camping as well as groceries. We camped in our 40' fifth wheel and could manuever through park even with mature trees. We would definitely stay here again- not fancy, just right. - Southern Snow

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

I've seen actual trailer parks that were better. Owners act as though they are doing you a favor letting you stay in their park. A laundry list of rule in small print, which they do not enforce for their 'special' friends. Costly compared with the other parks in the area, 750$/mth. New internet system which crashes frequently, and when it is up it is lousy. No cable connection and the park is covered in tree, preventing ANY satellite signal (don't let the dishes you see fool you, they don't work). Run down facilities that feel dingy. Everything needs at least some paint and repairs. If you complain about anything the owner will be banging on your door asking why you are being unreasonable, even if your complain is back be 3 other people around you. None of the utility connections are in standard places. Bring ALOT of hose to make RV connections. None of sewer pipes screw in so they have no seal. All over horrible place that caters to noisy offensive guests. Stayed here until my month was out and moved down the street. Every place in the area is better.When I checked out they charged me 170$ for a month of electricity, even though I turn everything, AC included, off during the day while I am at work; and I was away for 2 of the weekends. They did not have an accurate starting reading on the meter and took the last reading from whomever was in the slot before me, which was 2 months prior to my arrival. - Alex Spencer

This is a "resort" in name only. It has seen its best days a long, long time ago. Mostly seasonal sites, poorly maintained roads, trash and old camper parts, awnings, covers, etc., left where they fell. Store stuffed with junk, crowded and un-organized. Saw only one or two other non-seasonal RV's. Had our choice of 5-6 different sights, chose the best of the bunch and had a tough time backing in between the trees, junk, and other obstacles. We could not get into another nearby campground and had to settle for this. Luckily we were staying with friends and only had to sleep here 2 nights out of 7. - Ron & Pat

This resort is the "last resort" and we had no other choices in the area. This was as close as we could get to McGuire Air Force Base, where my son is stationed. The sites were long, but nowhere near level. Lots and lots of sand and rocks. Picnic tables covered with mold. Everything was old and falling apart. The whole place looked like a junk yard for old RVs. They had lots of unfriendly rules. For example, if I wanted to have my military son and his wife over for dinner, the "resort" wanted to charge them $10 each to enter the park. It was so patriotic I wanted to puke. Every Wal-Mart parking lot I've ever stayed in beat this place, hands down. I'll never stay there again. I gave this place a rating of 2 only because the site was long enough and the hookups worked. - azcartys

Location was handy but the road in and out was one lane. God forbid if you met another RV, it would require one to back up to one of the two wide spots on the quarter mIle road. No trees in our camping area. Not only the road into the camp but the roads all through the campground were horrible with massive holes, divots and wash outs. Very rough on my camper and vehicle. Too expensive for the site value. - MichaelRay

We stayed in this park 1 night. The campground was clean, if a little run-down. The campground spreads around a pretty little lake. It seemed like it was mostly seasonal campers, with a few sites set us aside for those of us passing through. We were there during October, and many of the campsites were really decorated for Halloween. This is a Passport America campground. - ShoreXplorers

Somewhat off the beaten path in the country in the woods only a few miles off the freeway and just down the road from Six Flags. The roadway through this older park is pretty rough and the sites are packed sand and not very level. They have a picnic table. They also have fire pits but fires were not allowed when we there due to the high fire danger. There a a lot of amenities; swimming pool, spa, miniture golf and a playground. They are on a small lake with fishing docks. This is an older park and could use some tender loving care. Even with the PA rate, it is still overpriced. - Michael Kibler
