Whippoorwill raised the price this year, which isn't so bad for the proximity to OCNJ. The service and cleanliness are still top notch. We have been staying here for a number of years and, now that I have a larger camper, I must say that the trees and signs located on the very edges of every road make for a hazardous finale to our trek to Whippoorwill. It is stressful to tow in the park and backing in can be a challenge (to be kind) in some spots. I had to request a site change, as Site 18 is a bear to land our 28' travel trailer. Beach tag rental is a nice option, but I was none too pleased to be charged for an extra day when I turned them in at my checkout day/time. Apparently, they are due by 9am and 11am on checkout day nets you a one an additional days rent. In the end it was an extra $6, but I hate being "nickel and dimed" for something that I do not recall being told. Thankfully the ridiculous gates were out of service again, as seems to be the case on every visit. This time they removed the turnstiles. So, at least safety, was restored. Whippoorwill is a fine campground, but I think it is time to shop around for future visits. - rvparkreviews_cc

A heavily wooded campground conveniently located near Ocean City, NJ. Staff quite friendly, although male teenager who escorted us to our site was useless - didn't speak a word of advice or guidance while we parked the RV. A large quality pool, recreation area and snack bar are available. We'll be back. - Lancaster Camper

Short hop over the 34th Street bridge to Ocean City NJ. Very level, all sand sites...of course it's South Jersey.
Service is excellent.
Mostly seasonal, but they are so well kept that it makes for very enjoyable long walks around the campground.
Off-island camping is always buggy in the summer. Asian Tiger mosquitoes will get you during the day. Be prepared.
Olympic size pool is open to the public (for a fee) and it is fun to watch the kids swim team practice.
Everything that you need is nearby and it is nice to leave the beach and avoid the crowds at the end of your day. They rent beach tags which is very helpful and save a lot of money. Bring cash as you will need to leave large deposit for beach tags and key cards. But, it's nice to have that back in your pocket for your return home.
The only complaint that I have is with their turnstiles for entry and exit. They often malfunction. On our last trip, the power went out. Thank God for 12V battery and a tank full of fresh water. But, the turnstiles failed and there was no way to enter or exit the campground. Now, that's a small inconvenience for a vacationer. But, if an ambulance or fire truck must wait for someone in the office to run down and manually remove the turnstile, then there could be a dangerous situation. They really need to remove these stupid turnstiles, or at least the exit turnstile. It really doesn't serve much purpose other than to annoy. - rvparkreviews_cc

There are only 9 RV sites available at this time. The remaining sites are all permanent single-wides. All sites are tree shaded. No way to get satellite TV. Cable TV is very good with plenty of channels. Sites can be very rough, parking on dirt. Park amenities are quite a distance from the sites, as is the trash dumpsters and laundry. Must pay completely in advance when making reservations. PA discount available, but restricted. Check it out. This is a Morgan RV Resorts property. Good location, 8 miles from Ocean City and 25 miles from Atlantic City. Owners/manager(s) not on site when we arrived. Two young men helped us park, and we needed the help. Roads are very narrow. Drop towed before parking. - kipmeister

Just your basic park, located right on the Tuckahoe River. A quite place, mostly seasonal with very reasonably priced seasonal sites. No junk or drunks on golf carts. - Zipster

Wonderful campground, excellent location. Located midway between Cape May (lovely, lovely) and Atlantic City (not so lovely), this campground has lots of shade, good management, and many summertime activities (swimming pool, game room, snack bar, bingo, etc.) for everyone. Sites are spacious with sand added to level the forest floor, so pads are needed under jacks. Many of the sites are leased for the season and all properties were well maintained. In the summer time there is also a farm stand nearby so you don't have to leave the campground. Trees lining the exit lane at the barrier arm from the campground need to be trimmed back; but, other than that, we had no complaints and will definitely stay there on our return trip. - Mom_of_Two

The campground is huge, probably a mile from one end to the other. Majority are seasonal residents in park models and converted trailers. Very few sites suitable for big rigs. Very forested. A few sites had gravel but most, including ours, were native dirt/sand. Very messy. No satellite reception. Cable was good. Utilities were good. Can't recall about the WiFi. Restrooms were plentiful and very nice. Staff was friendly but not very knowledgeable. Laundry was nice but seemed expensive at $2.50 a load but must say we rarely use laundries so not sure. Lots for the kids with lake, huge pool, cafe and fishing ponds. - VegasVagabonds

Ocean View is a top notch campground. It is huge. Everything is super clean. The restrooms and showers are like brand new and super modern. They have a huge swimming lake and a pool. Both very nice. The lake has paddle boats for rent at a very inexpensive price. There are restaurants and snack shacks right on the property, as well as the biggest campground store I've seen. The roads are super tight going through some of the areas. And the sites are somewhat small. But they are level. And the hookups were all fine, and in good shape. The problem with this park for me is that it is predominantly a seasonal resident park. There many park model trailers everywhere. Lots of other trailers with large decks and sun rooms built on. It looks and feels more like a "trailer park" than a campground. But the amenities are top notch, and the activities for adults and children are fantastic. It's just not the atmosphere I am looking for in a campground. But I highly recommend anyone to give it a shot and spend a weekend there. It might be your thing. - Brad K

Simply awesome. I can't think of one thing less then awesome. Bathhouses are the cleanest part of the whole park. Lake, game room, laundry, store, movie night, ice cream, way above par. I can't wait to go back. BTW we stayed for ten days, it felt like two. Ten out of ten. - sasully

Its is a seasonal park. Rates are $6500 to $7500+++.
Management is very unprofessional and ignorant. Power, internet WiFi, water, cable all are problems here.
There are better, more affordable, non-corporation owned campgrounds around. Do some research. There is a reason so many campers are for sale here. Fees go up a minimum of $200.00 every year. State police in here very often. Lots of items get stolen from your site.
Not the best around. - bbqman1968

This campground is crowded and geared towards seasonals. The transient sites that are available are far and few between. Good luck trying to find out where your site ends and the other begins. This campground is owed and operated by a corporation and I guess they haven't been in the bathrooms or have had to take a shower in them lately. They do clean the bathroom/shower area but some of them are so old it just doesn't help. We were lucky I'm told in my area as far as the bathrooms go. But my friends had to had to enjoy the septic system being pumped out in that area while they had their breakfast. The pond is green with a nice beach and big slide, my six year old enjoyed playing in the area with the outdoor equipment. But we used the pool instead. They have their own restaurant on the grounds as well as a store. There were some activities available. I did find the speed limit a little fast for a campground but it is a big place. It wouldn't be my first choice but depending on what you want to spend there are other campgrounds in the area more expensive. It's a short ride to some great beaches in the area. - Hargus

We camped at Pine Haven in the off season in early April. The campground was very nice, sites were large and fairly easy to get onto. - rmiller110

This campground has sold out to the nearby Driftwood Resort and is being converted to an "all-seasonal" resort. Pass on it. - revdon64

My kids love the lake that you swim in, its fun and relaxing. And the camp is not really too far from Wildwood. - RDewitt

We were seasonal campers at Hidden Acres for years and before we became seasonal - we camped there in a pop-up for years. In the past 2 years - it has gone downhill. The new owner did not take pride in the campground like the original owners. Homeless people were given run down campers to live in all summer and the sites were dirty and full of junk. There was a rule in the contract that your site must be kept neat and orderly and your camper must look the same. I never saw so many campers with blue tarps over them and junk all over the site. Sometimes, the grass in the playground would be as tall as my knee - which became tick city! The recycling bins were filled for a whole weekend, with cans on the ground. The store is never stocked, you have to get in your car and go to WaWa or Acme just for a container of milk or eggs. And honestly - some of the seasonals there became out of control. Quiet hours start at 11. People stay up past that, which is fine, but these people would be loud, yelling. Their kids would be roaming all over the place. And the underage drinking, law suit waiting to happen! - JerseyGirl

The entrance to the park is very nice and clean; excellent impression. The staff was so/so. One was nice and pleasant, the next not so much. I called prior to arrival to see if we could check in early. I told the girl I would pay for the night but couldn't get there til the morning. She said the site was empty (2 weeks prior to checking in), but she would note my file and if it was empty the night before they would accommodate. I called the day before and the site was still open. Keep in mind I told them I would pay for the extra night, but couldn't get there until the next morning. I was told NO because someone may come in during the evening for a site. Really? I was willing to pay the $62 for an extra night, but they wanted to see if someone would come in off the street for a spot? I guess they thought maybe they could have gotten $100 for a last minute overnight rental. Either way their greed got the best of them and they lost the $62 I was willing to pay for early check in. Attached to the store is an adult lounge where the Wi-Fi is available. Next to that is a game room; air conditioned with a nice assortment of games. All three of these facilities are immaculate. The pool area is somewhat small for the size of this campground. Chairs that weren't broken were hard to find. On the weekend, both pools were packed to the point where you are just getting kicked in the back and jumped on. That was ok because we were here for the beach and used the pool very little. The showers, bathrooms and laundry across from the pool were also immaculate. Now on to the bad part which is the cause of the low rating. We were assigned to a spot in the "P" section behind the pool. Our site was so unlevel that one side of our camper was raised 4" off the ground! The site was made up of stones and what appeared to be concrete debris. This broken up stone destroyed our patio mat as when you walked on the mat the sharp pieces of concrete went right through it! It was also very hard on your ankles to walk across this site because the size of this debris varied (some pieces the size of tennis balls), and we all found our ankles to be rolling on the rocks. The water and cable hookup for the site next to ours was right in the middle of our own site! Not in the back; not in the front, but right smack in the middle of our site. Not very comfortable or convenient. We were thankful to have a very nice couple next to us at first. It seemed like minutes after they left in comes the next camper. This person had his son helping him and I'm not sure either one of them knew what they were doing because, yes, they pulled the lever for their BLACK TANKS! Gallons and gallons of crap came flying out. They were from out of the country, and apparently had a long trip. I was sitting not 3 feet away from this, on my postage stamp. Truly the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. While this is not the fault of the campground, they should have staff overseeing the transition of their campers. Needless to say that ended our trip of being able to sit out and eat dinner. They claim the site we were given, they put 40' rigs on. There is no way a rig of that size can fit onto these sites properly. I understand it's all about the money, but when you are being charged a premium to be packed in like a sardine, it's not worth it, especially if you can't open your slide or awning, or both. It also was a safety issue as we kept tripping over the water and cable lines for the next site that were placed in the middle of our site. Additionally, we believe this site must have been dug up repeatedly because of the high middle ground. Another issue with the site was the flies. Never have I seen flies so bad! Was this site a septic site? Behind our camper towards the brush had a horrible smell of urine. Possibly, or were people using the brush as a toilet. We did see campers down the row from us dumping garbage into the brush behind their camper. Once again, I believe that is the campground's fault. They have lots of staff sweeping and starting leaf blowers at 8:00 am, but no one to assist or make sure things are ok. The office just looks at you and says: "Sorry." The sites in the back of the park are wooded with a bit more breathing room, but appeared to be quite difficult to get into as some are between trees, sites, and at odd angles with very narrow one way roads. If our site wasn't so miserable, it would have been a good stay. - campincrew

My wife & I camped here to be near a butterfly exhibit. I'm also trying all of the CG's I can in NJ as we live in NJ and we are looking for a perm home CG. We had one of new sites behind the pool which was close to the pool which was nice. The negatives were broken stone for pad for trailer to set on; preventing me from going barefoot. Site were very close together and the maintenance people started early on Sat and Sun preventing late sleep in. A previous review said they were able to get Wi-Fi at these sites we weren't. - GlennNJ

This was the first time my family camped at Avalon Campground. As far as Jersey Shore campgrounds go I was impressed. I've stayed at several and this was the nicest I've stayed at. We were camped right behind the 2 pools. These are relatively new sites and could be a little wider, but had ample room for our two slideouts and awning. There were a lot of cable TV channels available and Wi-Fi was just receivable at our site. They do not offer Wi-Fi throughout the campground, we were just close enough to the source. They do require a username and password that is good for 6 hours. We camped for a week and enjoyed the campground. There are tons of amenities, 2 pools, a decent playground for little ones, a full basketball court, baseball diamond, horseshoes, miniature golf and a game room. The camp store was decent, not too expensive. If you stay in the original portion of the campground in the back, it is similar to most of the Jersey Shore campgrounds, real cramped with lots of seasonal sites. The main negative is the abundance of French Canadians. Most of our stay we were the minority. I have not experienced that at the other Jersey Shore campgrounds I've stayed at. We will definitely stay here again as long as we get one of the newer sites behind the pool. - mgirardo

We stayed here only for a weekend, very clean park. The park is majority seasonal campers/residents. We were only able to get a water/electric hook up due to it being summer. We would stay here again if in that area. - EastPAcamper

We had a great experience at this campground. The sites are pull through and level. There are only a few sites that aren't seasonal but the seasonals are very well kept and there is pride in ownership. The campground is very well located near Wildwood and Cape May and not far from the famous Ocean City, NJ. The Cape May zoo is right down the road and is a must (and it's free!). The staff at Driftwood are top notch and anything we needed was provided. The manager actually went above and beyond for us. Great place to stay if you are looking to enjoy Jersey's southern Shore. - Adrian'n'Rocky

I stayed here for four days. Was the closest RV Park to Atlantic City beach and boardwalk. I would've gave them a higher star rating but their bathrooms needed to be updated a little bit. It is very rustic, lots of shade, Park was barely occupied. Would certainly stay here again. One member of staff very helpful for checking in. - Denise M Smith
