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

We only stayed here one night after picking up our travel trailer from the dealership. The site was not level and was muddy since it had been raining for about 24 hours prior to arrival. It was difficult to get a reservation here; we had to call multiple times before we could get someone to confirm. Due to the time of year, the water was turned off. - ZimmyGo

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

In over 2 years of full timing all over the US where we stay primarily in state parks this is hands down the worst we have been in. It's too bad since there are very few state parks in NJ that will allow RVs over 25' but that was the least of our problems. Add $5/day/pet and $17.50 "service charge" for a campground with no hook ups, no water available (see below) and an unacceptable women's showers. Registration is at a site 3/4 mile BEYOND the entrance to the campground in an area that cannot accommodate large rigs (we are 33' and could not have) The site we reserved (#4) was supposedly big enough for a 33' rig-it was 33'6" long-rutted and sloped, dirt, sand and small branches as a surface; and 11' 9" wide (between trees that would not allow extension of an awning) We were able to change though the site was still sloped-end to end and side to side. First attempt to get water from the pedal operated spigot was unsuccessful. The water spews from the pedal area but not the spigot. 2nd attempt at a further spigot-water still comes from pedal area but also from spigot UNTIL a hose is connected. Then it spews from the pedal area and every other opening on the apparatus-up, down and out, EXCEPT the spigot. The third spigot next to the bathhouse has no water at all. A call to the office brings the "full time maintenance man" within 15 min who proceeds in the face of a pump (#2) apparatus taped from bottom to top, to say "it needs to be fixed." To be fair, he was very nice and took us to the maintenance garage where we were able to fill our tank. The trip to the showers the next morning was as disappointing. 3 showers-2 had only cold and of those 1 no pressure since the shower head. The handicapped shower had warm water for about 10 seconds of the 15 sec push button allotment but ended with lukewarm with water spraying from both upper and lower heads and no control. I don't like to write bad reviews but we could not recommend this place at all. - edc1951

Not sure how this park got such good reviews unless it was for location and/or activities. $25/night (for non-NJ residents) and a $5 reservation fee and no hookups. I have to wonder what they're doing with the money, because it's certainly not campground improvements. The bathrooms are clean but in dire need of updating. Broken shower heads, no shelving in sink area, scratched mirrors, etc. Even though they say bears are active in the area, the dumpster lid was broken in half (perhaps the result of the bears?). I only saw staff in the campground twice (and that was probably for cleaning). Noise from the interstate is audible but bearable. I probably wouldn't stay here again. - MSSW

$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 decent park for the area. Most of the campers were seasonal and 5th wheels. The staff was very friendly and over all the park was nice and quite. I would go back again. - Vanslam

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

This park has really narrow gravel roads; we were told to NOT go one way as i'd hit a tree!! With the number of trees in this park (NOT a resort as the sign advertises) why not just cut it down?? We ended up in the one "pull through" site based on the length of our 41' fifth wheel. Good thing as most of the sites are way too short. Anybody hooking up their trailer as they were leaving? were sticking out into the road so you couldn't pass until he was gone. Dumb! Our "30 AMP" power could not even handle our smaller AC unit, first time in about 50 parks I've been to. I asked a worker who was driving by in a cart, he explained that the owners were "upgrading" the sites to 50 Amp. NOT! there was no sign of any upgrading as I drove through the whole park. The sewer pipe was sticking out of the ground way too high; with my supports under the hose, I still had 4" of uphill climb for my sewer. This park is not worth $63.00; should be in the $30 range. Not impressed with this "resort". - North America in 90 days

The price reflects a month's stay. Stay was wonderful. Sites are all sand. Lots of activities on weekends. Park is chuck full of trees. We stayed a month as it was the closest park to our son in Brooklyn an hour 15minutes away. The sites are very spacious. - User3274

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

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

Worst camping experience ever. I chose this place because I wanted to camp near Great Adventure. The owner was very nice on the phone, but she asked that I come set up camp so that when I arrived late at night after being at the park I wouldn't disturb the other campers. I came to the park and set out my camping chairs and ground mat. When I returned from great adventure someone had stolen all of it. The owner said she would look around and ask around, but it never turned up. We couldn't use the toilets because they were clogged, my hose did not reach the water outlet because it was so far back and the sewer connection was facing the wrong direction and broken. The pool looks nice and the playground was nice but we didn't use them. The campground was expensive and in bad repair. It looks like a worn down seasonal place with a lot of creepy old campers. I will not go back to this campground. - lubby

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

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
