Mostly permanent. Although 55+ they had no problem with my young children. Full hookup site was level. Nice pool. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice little quiet campsite. Nice pool, level sites, easy to navigate to sites. Would definitely stay there again! We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Made reservation for a month plus sight unseen. A very small and very quiet park with mostly long term residents. Roads are paved, sites have small stone base. Sites have poor separation and little visual appeal. Some sites require work to get your rig level. Water, electric, and sewer worked well. Cable TV requires a box (campground provides) and offers at least 75 channels, some in HD. 3rd party WiFi was frustrating and mostly unusable. Small friendly staff. Amenities of note... pool, small dog park, small playground, laundry. This campground is a good choice for a short stop-over but not so much a destination unless Atlantic City appeals to you. Some Jersey beaches are 30 mins to 1 hr away. Plenty of shopping and dining options within 5 miles though nothing is a walkable distance. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Access to the Atlantic City Expwy and Garden State Pkwy are close and easy. Several places nearby to fuel up with easy egress for big rigs.

As mentioned this is a Passport America and Good Sam campground. A separate section is over 55 and has permanent trailers. The other section is family oriented with quite a few seasonal sites. These are very well maintained sites. The camp roads are asphalt and the red pea stone sites had a slight pitch and were plenty large enough for our 25ft Class C. The WiFi, water pressure, electric all good. Cable is available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for 4 nights and will definitely will stay here on our visit next year.

We stayed here 1 night after we visited Atlantic City. This is more of a permanent RV community than a campground. We moved from our assigned campsite because our neighbor had pitched a tent right next to our sewer hook up. The sites are red gravel, and very level. They are close together, but at the time we were there, most of the ones set aside for short-termers were empty. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This campground has both Good Sam and Passport America. It is not a fancy campground, but they have the friendliest caretaker and staff here, and the sites are clean and well kept, and the price cannot be beat. Each site has a fire ring, a picnic table and the sites are fairly level red stone with pavement pathways. We did have to put wood blocks under the back tires to get completely level. There are tall trees around, but we got a space where we could get our Dish signal with no problem. The caretaker put us in 2 back-ins that joined together to make one large pull-through. It was long enough that we could park our Jeep in front or behind. There is free WiFi with a code from TengoInternet, although we did have problems with the Internet being quite slow. The washrooms, showers and laundry rooms are old, but kept immaculately clean. It is so quiet in this park that other than a small bit on noise from the road outside the campground, and an occasional plane, the most noise we ever heard was from the acorns dropping on the roofs of the motorhomes and pavement. The campground is close to all the stores we needed, and very close to Atlantic City, the casinos and boardwalk there. We loved this park so much and we will come back here next time we are out this way. This is mainly due to the excellent staff who went out of their way to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 6 nights using a $99/wk coupon we'd obtained from The Tampa RV show. The park is mostly permanent cabins/homes/trailers, etc. Half of them are in nice condition but there are some really dilapidated ones. The pool was in the process of a minor renovation so we couldn't use it. The laundry room is small but reasonable ($1.25) and the equipment is relatively new. I did have to re-wash two loads because they never spun dry though. The clubhouse is cozy. The only activity was Bingo and we showed up but no one else did. Turns out it was canceled because of the rain (???). There are a lot of nearby services. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Getting to this park is a little tricky, but once here, well worth it. It's the closest park to Atlantic City. There are a lot of permanent trailers here. Our site was level both ways and close to the showers. The bath area is great. The only thing we could find wrong is that the office closes at 4:00 PM. We camped in a motorhome.

Our rate reflects Passport America. It was one PA park I was not disappointed in. We have a 35 ft fifth wheel and we fit fine. I am not sure if larger rigs can fit, call ahead and ask. If they are not crowded they will let you use two sites, that will create a pull through. Surprisingly clean and neat for a mobile home park. Nice quiet mobile home park. It is predominantly retired folks. It is well kept, about 8 mi from the boardwalk and casinos. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. Rating dropped because sites were unlevel and no cable. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, smaller park, mostly dedicated park modular s, well kept, nice staff, quiet and peaceful at night though it was off season, very close to Atlantic City. Would stay here again if in the area. No cable & No over the air reception so bring DVD's! We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This is a Carefree Park and we stayed on a special May rate of $20/night. This is a perfect park for access to Atlantic City - 10 miles away, to visit Philadelphia - 50 miles away and for hiking. We were close to the National Wildlife Refuge and state parks. Wi-Fi worked great it's through Tengo and is free for up to a month stay. There is NO cable and only a couple channels come in even with a booster. The clubhouse and pool are nice. I would recommend this park whenever visiting Atlantic City or this area. We would stay here again. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed on site 3 which was completely blocked from receiving satellite signal, and there was no cable to other than permanent residents, which is most of the site. The club house and adjoining restrooms and showers were exceptional, unfortunately it was the highlight of this park. Seven miles from casinos.

Overall Rating:

The Campground is very clean with all site covered in crushed red brick mulch, with beautiful landscaping. The previous owner took a great deal of pride in the park's overall appearance, and built one of the nicest bathroom buildings we have seen. Backing in a 40 foot rig can be nerve racking and not all sites will allow you to use your Sat. Dish, awnings, or some slides. There is a gated dog park to let fido run and our dogs feel very at home at this park. Unfortunately, not all dog owners are considerate, and some permanent site holders walk their dogs without leashes. Although there may be 140 sites, only 20 or so are not permanent. Of those, only 6 can accommodate big rigs. We camped at Shady Pines RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
