We were disappointed with the seemingly a lack of even warm water in the ladies shower rooms. Both the shower rooms and bathrooms were terribly unclean, mildew and in need of paint. Needs better upkeep and updating.
The water faucet was a good distance away from our coach connections. There is no pool and few lights in the rv area. - Charles and Joyce Dixon

One of the few dog friendly campgrounds in New Jersey! This quiet county park is perfect for someone looking to checkout the New Jersey countryside. For the price, it was an amazing find. The roads are well maintained, it was easy to find, and even though every site was full, it was very quiet! There is a large area of grass to walk your dogs (on leash) and the additional services (bathhouse, dump station, garbage) are convenient to all sites. The one downside for some might be the utilities. The power was steady but the water hookups can be pretty far away. You might want to arrive with a 50' hose. We got 3 bars of LTE on both our Verizon and AT&T lines. We'd stay here again. - technogypsies

Most affordable campground in vicinity of New York City. Went into the City by train to Penn Station; one hour ride, which we picked up just south in Dover. Park is scenic, well kept. Staff and hours of operation are part time, so repeated efforts to contact are required. Bathrooms are 'rustic', showers less so. Hilly, but sites are level front to back and a little off side-to-side. Not an issue with one or two minimal ramp. We have a 27 ft. 5th wheel and backing into site was tedious. Sites are big and well layed out, just a little too sharp of an entry given trees opposite which are right at the road. Would stay here again. No shopping or amenities to speak of outside park. We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon just 'camping'! - Mike from Bama

If you are wondering why you cannot find any reviews on this "worst campground" in the USA, read on. This was our first time in the New Jersey area. Since we live out of state, we searched for hours online to find an rv park within reasonable proximity to the New York City area. We did a Google search and found Sun Air Campground. We phoned the owner to ask if he could accommodate a large motorhome, if it was easy to get to New York City by mass transit and what amenities they had. I was led to believe that everything was fine; no sewer, but good electric and water hookups, a dump station and fishing just steps away with a nice view of the lake. We believed we would be staying in a nice country setting with good access and modern amenities. So here is what we saw upon arriving in town. Without a GPS we never would have found this place. No directions were given on the website. When we turned onto Cozy Lake Rd, it was a very narrow road in a residential neighborhood with low overhanging trees. There were no signs along the road to provide direction until we finally came upon a small weathered sign nailed to a tree by a driveway. This was our first clue. The driveway entrance was rutted and rocky with pot holes, heavily wooded and very narrow. We pulled into a turn around area and straight ahead was a rundown modular residence with a little sign "Office" above the door. I knocked on the door (9:15 am) - no answer. My wife and I walked down the road into the campground only to be met by a vicious barking boxer, luckily on a chain in front of what looked to be a permanent trailer residence. The available sites were uneven, difficult to get into and covered in leaves and tree limbs. All occupied spots looked like permanent residents. We immediately decided this campground would not even rate a negative one star rating. There is a reason why there are no photos of the campground on the website. Cut-out areas in a heavily wooded area does not make a decent rv campground. We knew we were taking a chance on this place with so little information online, but we thought we'd check it out. Couldn't see any satellite images on Google maps because the area is so overgrown and the buildings are trashy and in horrible shape. In our 20+ years of motorhome travels, this is truly the worst place we have ever seen. Needless to say we drove on down the road. - cal corvette

Family owned, people are nice. Gravel roads that are not maintained, gravel sites, ours was not level even with the use of leveling blocks. We parked by the lake, which was full of algae. There had been a boat dock at one time, now the area is roped off with "do not enter" signs. There is only one bath house for showers that is in very poor condition. You have to pay to use the shower. There is another bathroom that is in even worse condition. Neither were clean. There is a dump station, but no sewer hook up. The majority of the sites are seasonal renters in run down trailers. This place only takes cash. - esta34950

Super nice place: very clean, and well laid-out. The only complaint is the office hours are not very reliable. They close from 5-7pm and again at 10 pm each night: which is inconvenient. So I went down at 4:45 pm: they were already closed. We went for firewood at 9:30 pm: again they were already closed. Other than that, a great park! - ST59

We chose this campground because it was close and offered a lot of amenities for kids. Best part? The very large playground - the kids had a BLAST. The mini golf course was cheesy to us adults but the kids thought it was great. The kids never got to use the beautiful pool because a large group of adults took over the whole pool area for water football. Bathrooms were yucky but luckily we had a camper! Walking trails were overgrown and not maintained. - Its Me

Nice location - rural. Bathrooms weren't very clean. The sites were not very level. There were many campers with a lot of junk all over their site. The entrance looks like it will be wonderful, but the sites and the junk take away from that perception. - bonniejames

Should have anticipated a problem when I did not get an email confirmation after 3 requests. Arrived after dark do to traffic issues. Park is not kept up very well. Narrow roads with trees not trimmed very well. Could not find site due to resident parking on site and lousy markings. The number is at back of site and is carved into wood post. Asked office for help. They stated they could not understand wife and hung up. Site had lot of trees that needed major trimming. Sites are very close together. The population is owners and some short term renters. Bathrooms are distant and only two dumpsters were present, which are very full. Campground is definitely showing its age. Did not see a wi fi availability. Cable was ok. Would not return. - JOHNGW

This is a large destination campground with lots to do. It is well staffed by friendly people who know their business. Its the first time I've actually seen the pool, hot tub and beach staffed with lifeguards at a private resort. Most of the interior roads are dirt with some paved roads with heavier traffic. It is an older campground that shows its age but most of the campgrounds in the north east are no better. The common grounds are well maintained but management could do a better job of getting some of the seasonals to clean their sites a little better. We stayed here for a month at the rate of $725 in season but the daily rate is over $40. The electric is only 30 amps which was a problem during the summer. The voltage tended to drop off during days with high heat. Cable TV in an internal analog only system with a poor signal on the lower channels. The Wi-Fi is a hot spot at a pavilion. The maintenance people indicated the owner is thinking of upgrading a portion of his park to 50 amps. If he does he will be one of the few parks in the area that would accommodate class A's with two A/C's. - D in Davie

Okay for a night or two. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park is more for park models/seasonal and tents. Price is for W/E only. - Minden Mike

Based on other reviews, we didn't go in with many expectations. However, we were pleasantly surprised....it turned out OK. We only stayed for 2 nights, but it was quiet and peaceful in what you would think would be an urban area. As other reviewers have mentioned, you need to make your entry to Flanders-Netcong Rd off of Old Ledgewood Road. If you try to come in off International, it deadends before you get to the park. The terrain is hilly, but we navigated it just fine with a 40' toyhauler (57' overall length). We had a pull-through site that was long enough. Water, power, and sewer worked just fine. Not a big site, but adequate. No cable. Satellite is unlikely due to lots and lots of trees. Over the air TV was VERY limited. There is WiFi, but as we have found in every park we've stayed in, it is slow. Our ATT & Verizon hotspots worked well. The owner is working on making things better, but it's not an overnight process. We would return if we were in the area. - FireFlyer

Fla-Net is a campground to avoid. GPS location is incorrect - it took us to a dead-end road. So we had to unhitch our towed vehicle to get turned around. The manager said they keep meaning to correct that. The campground was a mix of hills and valleys. It was the most uneven campground I've ever seen. The first spot they sent me to was way too narrow with overhanging trees that scraped my roof. After complaining they gave me the adjacent site. Thankfully I had a good surge protector. It caught the fact that the electric had no "ground" and the polarity was reversed. This could have fried my camper's electrical system. Had to add an extender to my electric cable to hook up to the next site over. This place is a wreck! - Vince & Charlette

Extremely tight spots. Some tough terrain to drive through to get to park and even more to get to your spot. The operator is nice enough and fairly helpful and provides a 10% discount just for asking while not officially part of a discount program.
The amenities seem quite nice though we didn't have an opportunity to use them. It seems popular as it was pretty full.
30A with water was $38/night. 30A with water and sewer was $43/night. 50A with water and sewer was $48, which we paid $43, discounted. In my opinion a little steep for such a cramped, fairly basic space. $10 less across the board and I'd up my rating for value. - Outlaw Pilots

The entrance to get in is only wide enough for 1 vehicle never mind 2 trucks pulling campers. The interior roads are a shambles, potholes, ruts and steep hills and super narrow. The electrical system is outdated with only 30 amp. The voltage was fluctuating the entire length of my stay. I had to shut down the pwr management system so the power would stay on. The water was on one side of the site and the electrical on the other. The cable TV wire was up in a tree and I had to search for it. The sites were a nice size but need serious amounts of gravel to level them out. We would not go back to this campground. - jambro

Overall the campground was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads are in poor shape, they are narrow and have with many pot holes and loose gravel on the up and down hill parts which makes pulling large heavy campers precarious when meeting oncoming traffic in blind areas. I will not stay here again. - Zinger Travels

Excellent friendly staff made the stay great. Pool is a good size and clean. Bathrooms were small, but clean. I did not use the showers, but did look at them and they seemed clean. The campsites have good room and a good mix of out in the open and tucked away in the shade. The weekend we stayed was a Christmas in July weekend so we figured it would be packed and out of control, but it was well run and even the campers were polite. We had a great time. The only downside if any is that the campground is very hilly and mostly unpaved (crushed gravel). If you camp way in the back (M section), you are going to want to have a bike or something because the walk is a nice one to the front were all the activities are. We stayed in the M section and loved it. We stayed here hoping to find a seasonal site for the future and we are seriously thinking about making this our seasonal home next year. We camped here in a 34' rig and had plenty of room. - ever1ast15

We have a 40 foot coach. This park is rated as "big rig friendly," and when we called to see if they had space for a 40 foot rig, they said yes. Technically this is true, I suppose. Our site was plenty long enough to park both the rig and toad. But getting to the site, and into the site was a nightmare. The roads are narrow, rutted, bumpy, and edged by trees (think forest) and rocks. We had to back and fill to get into the site, and got hung up on a rock trying to get in. I told them at the office about this, and a very nice lady there did apologize, but then told me, "other people have done it." Yes, and we did it too, but never again. - ZoAnn

The speed bumps at the campground will knock the fillings out of your teeth! Never mind what they do to your RV. Actually, if you want to see how secure your interior setup is or clean the grunge out of your blackwater tank, this is an EXCELLENT place to go.
We went at the beginning of camping season. Our site had a fire ring, picnic table, but there's no Wi-Fi.
There were only 2 sites open. Both back-in and these were all -gravel with no separation at all from adjacent sites.
The water spigot at our site was broken. We didn't want to bother the staff who had stayed late to check us in so we opted for no water hookup the first night.
We had an issue the next morning with rust in the drinking water that would not clear up after 20 minutes of running the water from the spigot.
A lot of full-timers live here but they were mostly very nice to us. Well... except for the guy who saw us trying to back into the first site next to his and cursed. We couldn't figure out how to get in there anyway so we took the other site.
We'd like to go back mid-season and give them another chance. - kalm_in_nj

Staff friendly and check-in efficient. Our site was located on the top of the hill at the backside of the campground. The roads were really narrow, rutty with speed bumps every 10' that were in need of repair or just needed removing. The sites are really large and the entire campground in wooded. Seems most sites are permanent and since we were there during the week, not many campers near us….in fact, none. Very secluded and quiet. Did not see many people except the occasional walkers going by. Except for the mama bear and 3 cubs visiting within 50' of our campsite….extra treat. Was surprised that the possible visitation of bears was not mentioned. The camp store is adequate but small. Grocery stores at least 15 miles away. - carol d

Only campground we've seen that charges per person ($15). Great price for 2 persons, not so much for a family of five or more. Campground gave us a great site by the pond. Staff was very friendly. Our site was electric (30 amp) and water only. Electric outlet was worn giving a loose connection. Owner said my plug was the problem but I've used it since in other campgrounds without a problem. Sewer dump is in front of office and can be difficult to access if vehicles are in the way. We were in the area visiting relatives and would stay here again. - halfdimes

Evaluating this park is tough because everything was frozen. The host did talk us through getting lost on the way to it and got us "unstuck" to get out of the park the next morning. For friendlineess/helpfulness they definitely get an A++ for 2 tired travelers looking for a place to land in a season of ice and for that we are very thankful. - ralinda

The previous campers who had bathrooms in their trailers were probably unaware about the bathrooms. My husband saw human waste on the walls; the woman's bathroom had an over flowing toilette with brown water running from the toilette to the drain in the floor. It smelled like backed up sewer. The drywall was also just set up against the wall. It was slum for camping. The 2 big dumpsters for garbage was over-flowing. Bags of garbage ended up on the ground, which camper's dogs were eating and no one seemed to care. It looks like they are putting up a play structure from a McDonalds that wasn't finished, so it had orange tape around it. The pond was all brown and disgusting. The second bathrooms had the doors open so bird droppings were all over the stalls. The birds use it as a bird house: it was so gross. It just looks like they have too many projects going on at the same time, that aren't getting finished. They have a nice pool, a great baseball field with an electric score board and a roller hockey/ ice hockey arena. To me it seemed like one of the owners is into baseball and hockey, and the campground pays for it. If they knocked the bathrooms down and build new ones, and kept up: then this place could be a gem. The sites were big, but on the downside you had to share an electrical hook-up, so make sure you have at least a 50 foot electrical cord. It's so shady that there is lots of (moss) on the trees, that gets onto the camper and/or tent. The Wi-Fi didn't didn't work, which makes me wonder if they really have any. We were packed up by 8:00am and ready to leave, but since we got here at 6:00 on a weekday they had already left, so we were suppose to wait to check-in and out in the morning. They were suppose to open at 9:00 am but we left at 9:00 and no one was even here yet. We would never return and I would warn all others not to go. I hate to say that since this is someone's business, but I wished someone else would have warned us. - Chatterbox

Both the positive and negative reviews are correct in some ways. This campground is by a farm and has fishing ponds, small animals like small horses and goats, a nice pool, playground and dog park. The store is small but also sells ice cream and light food. Access is through High Point Park, a good climb off the interstate. The campground has many long-termers and is much like summer camp. The overnight sites are gravel and weeds and close to level. People are very friendly here and there are summer activities....tonight is a square dance. Its not like anywhere else we've stayed. It is in the country, activity (and not tourist attraction) oriented, quiet and spacious. It could be great, but I doubt it is worth the investment of improving the roads/sites to make it so. There are no real over the air TV stations available other than religious shows. We could not get any major network. We'd come back.. Why not, I loved summer camp as a kid. - Solem8s

Under no circumstances should you come to this campground for an overnighter. It is almost 10 miles off the highway down a small windy road. After paying $58 we were sent to the back of the park where there are a few pull-through sites, which are unpaved and even unmowed...a mess. We were surrounded by unoccupied park models and had no view. Fire pits in our section were full of trash. I didn't feel like digging through the plastic bags, etc. to get it ready for a fire. What a waste of money. We will never be back. - RVerMJ

Yes, I have to agree with other reviews, the views are amazing. However, this park is set up totally for seasonals, which isn't a bad thing it just doesn't cater to the one nighter. They to have some pull through sites and while they are plenty big they are very unlevel with very pronounced depressions next to the sewer inlet. We came here mostly because of the reviews, but I won't bother about coming back. It is a little out of the way and the entrance road is rather steep. I cannot in good conscious recommend this park to other than seasonals. - Jack&Wanda

I have been camping at this forest, mostly with groups, since the 1950s. It remains quite rustic with no RV facilities. Sites are located in two separate areas. There is one area by a pond that is on grass and will permit you to pull through. Roads can be narrow and you should discuss the area with the ranger before picking a site. Wooden cabins are also available. The park contains a beautiful lake with wonderful swimming, and is next to an excellent athletic field/playground -- a major attraction. While water supplies are not at the campsites, there is a spring fed pump that gives you some of the finest water in NJ. People come to the park in off hours to fill their bottles. The park is open year round, but don't expect immediate help if you are trapped there in a snowstorm. There is a nearby RV dealer, Escape RV, which offers excellent parts and service. Also nearby is Jumbo's, a super restaurant for comfort food and ice cream. - rvwanderer
