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. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice campground with helpful hosts. Roads are narrow in places and some turns will be tight for big rigs. Sites are gravel, back in, and there are a lot of trees throughout the park. A nice store, but no book exchange. Our water filter was quite dirty after three days, so you may want to be sure to filter your water. Watch for the park entrance (340 Georgia Road), our GPS tried to take us to Love Lane which does not access the park. Watch carefully for the signs when coming from Jackson Mills Road; they are not easy to see and you can pass them up easily! We didn't use the restrooms or laundry. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

We used this park as our base to explore the area and NYC. You can take the commuter train from the Long Branch station into NYC Penn Station. Long Branch is about a little over an hour from the park.

My husband and I recently stayed at Pine Cone and had a great time! There was a beautiful well kept pool, spotless bathrooms, great water pressure, clean laundry facilities, well maintained grounds and we found the office staff to be quite engaging! We would definitely stay there again, the only thing to make it better would be a snack bar. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is by no means a "resort". The roads are only dirt and sand....no pavement anywhere. The laundry facility was horrible, dirty, and unkempt. The washers and dryers cost $3.25 each to use but the machines would not accept my coins and there was no one around to help or any signage to explain the problem with their use. The cable TV was down at first and, when we asked about it, we were told to go and try it the next day. The manner in which we were told was very rude and unfriendly and no on from the office offered to come to our site to check out the problem. In fairness, I will say that our site was spacious and the water pressure was good. But for the price we paid per night we feel we should have been made to feel more satisfied. We will never stay here again nor will we recommend this park to other RVers. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

This place could be OK if the sites were not in sand. The roads are soft dirt. The dust is very bad. Swimming pool is real nice behind office. Laundry clean but very high with small machines. We will never come back. Will stay at the state park 2 miles away. High price and nothing to do. Also big dogs (bull dogs and Chows) are always running loose. This is far from a resort.

Dirt/sand roads throughout. Mostly dirt/sand sites, heavily treed. Decent sized level sites. Lots of seasonal/long term folks. Several sites now used for overnight/short term visits are a mess since they used to be for long term use. Good Wifi and cable. Good location to visit Jersey shore, Six Flags Great Adventure, or to sight see in the area. Don't know the definition of "resort", but this is not it. Nice pool and play area for kids. Seems to be the best choice for this area. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

Lovely, quiet, woodsy setting even though it's near highways and shopping. Campsites are spacious, hookups easy. Would definitely go there again. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

It’s an OK place, but calling it a resort is a stretch. Water pressure is extremely low, roads and sites are muddy and rutted, and Wi-Fi is sporadic. The many permanent construction worker residents have turned sites into eyesores. It’s a good place to be close to Philadelphia and New York City. Each is about an hour away. Malls and other stores are close. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed a week. The men's restroom was cleaned once during that time. The staff was rude and unwelcoming. The setting is beautiful, but the sites are not well maintained. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

Great location. Right off 195 and route 9 but you don't hear any highway noise. Secluded, treed, a little tight in some areas for big rigs as others have noted. We had site 19. It has issues with power and sewer smell. Staff moved us, and our new site was awesome. GREAT pool, tennis courts, good camp store, and excellent shopping nearby. NJ is awful for RV parks. Just not enough choice. This is a very nice park and the staff was very friendly. We stayed here for over a week. It will be our regular NJ HQ when we travel here to visit with the kids/grandkids.

Nice, wooded area, surprising after weaseling the RV through lots of housing areas. We didn't have reservations, but phoned ahead to ensure campground was open. We arrived after dark. Staff checked us in. We were told that we could not have our hose hooked up due to winter temps. It happened to be warm enough that we could have left it attached all night, but we decided to obey the command to not have it attached. We used our hose until bedtime, then took it off, then re-attached it in the morning. Water spout was way in the back of the site. I thought the showers and bathrooms were ok... but my traveling companion thought the men's room could have been cleaner. Laundry was EXPENSIVE! Dryer and washer were $3.25 each! YIKES! Roadway was a bit dicey to travel through due to the woods, but it made for nice ambiance. Spacing was adequate between the sites. Each site has a nice wood built patio. If you are great at maneuvering your RV, maybe you can get it to go between the patio and the sewer spot. If you are lucky, you can get your RV to where the patio meets your doorway! Cable TV was snowy. As for the Wi-Fi, I think you need a code for it. We didn't use it. Verizon 4G Air Card, as well as wireless landline got good reception. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

We did not have the same problems that others had. The staff that checked us in was friendly and had our reservations, although the sites were not all together like we had requested. There where 3 coupes traveling together. They did try to get us as close as possible. The down side to this park is that it is heavily wooded and the roads in the park are tricky to maneuver. The park map that they give you is almost useless. It had been reproduced so many times that it was hard to read. If you camp here, you may want to find your site before moving into the park with your rig. This is especially true if arriving after dark. All of the sites are packed sand as are the roads. The Wi-Fi worked well. The park is centrally located for easy travel to New York City (via Park & Ride) and Philadelphia via car. It is also a short drive to the New Jersey coast. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.

We found the owner rude and unprofessional. We arrived and the office was closed even though it was almost 11am. When we tried to call the number they have on the door we got an electronic message saying the user has not set up a mail box on this account. When the owner finally showed up we found out she had given our site away even though I had confirmed our reservation. She was rude and didn't even apologize for the error. Her response was what do you want me to do about it we're all booked and it's not my fault. We have stayed at this campground for years and until this year never had a problem. It did not seem to matter to her that we were long time customers. In fact she seemed equally annoyed at the other campers who were all waiting for her to open the office/store. We are done with Pinecone and would not suggest it to others looking for a campground in this area. There are many others to choose from. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The restrooms and common areas in this campground are clean but could use some maintenance. The pool is in a nice sunny area but had a lot of broken edges one of which cut one of our young children. The playground also had broken equipment and the game room that's on their website isn't opened anymore. There was a strong smell of sewerage in some areas, I'm not sure what the issue was. The owners and staff were unfriendly not customer oriented people and seemed very unorganized. The store and office never seemed to opened at the posted hours or when we needed to purchase something. On the positive side, it's 15-20 min from Great Adventure and about 30 min from the beach, which was nice. They also had Free Wi-Fi. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Campground Cabin.

We chose this park because of the previous ratings and reviews for a family reunion in Colts Neck. When we made our reservation (in March) I thought the staff on the phone were rude. This was confirmed when I re-confirmed our reservation the day prior to arrival. The person on the phone couldn't find the reservation and had the wrong departure date when we found the reservation misfiled. We reserved a 50AMP, full hook up. Upon arrival we were told that there were no sewer hook ups available and we would have to pay $10 to dump! At $52/night and have to pay to dump, and making a reservation months in advance, is outrageous. We have traveled across the country for the past 3 years, and this is one of the worst campgrounds for customer service we have been in. We camped at Pine Cone Resort in a Motorhome.
