We loved staying here. Lots to do, swim, bingo, crafts and the beach is close. Sites are kinda close together but large. People were very nice and accommodating. We would stay here again. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Best thing about our stay was the location. Traveling in a big rig towing a car, the roads are tight and tree limbs are low. Very heavily wooded sites with still too many trees on each site to comfortably back in a big rig. Site was not cleaned, fire ring overflowing with past campers excess, and site needed to be raked. Had to ask the front desk to take care of. Last year it was already done when we arrived and that was right after Labor Day. This year we visited end of September and facilities were a disgrace. Half of the showers and toilets were closed with signs saying "closed for season" because they close October 31st. It was still a month away. There were two young men traveling around on a go cart cleaning bath houses, but you couldn't even tell they were there. A real disgrace. Big difference from a year ago. WiFi was only available at Camp Store or right outside at a picnic table. You had to pay for the internet access at your sight. Only reason to stay here was to have close access to Ocean City. I will not be staying here again. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is a great location for visiting Ocean City. Enterprise car rental comes to location if rental car is needed. Close to old bridge crossing bay where you can walk, rent boats, etc. Grocery shopping close by as well. Staff friendly and helpful. On site breakfast/lunch place. Large pool with activities. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground but the spaces are tight, though there are very nice staffers who are here to guide you into your site . The roads are very narrow. Too many seasonals. They are dog friendly but there is no where to walk the dogs or allow them to be off-leash for a little while. (That would be a major help in tiring them out and for us to enjoy our time camping too.) There are a lot of dogs. Still a nice place though. The pool was nice but had an adult spa rather than a kiddie pool, which would have been a better use for that little gated area. The staff was very nice. The girls in the camp store were very helpful . Smaller size trailers will do well here. It's close to the beach and well maintained. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is the 5th time we have stayed at this campground and will be back for sure. We always visit during the off season to avoid the crowds since we are retired. The discount rate is also nice during the off season. Yes, the roads are narrow but can be navigated easily if you just go slow. Backing into the sites has never been a problem. The sites are perfectly level and most are a very nice size. Our site is plenty deep and we still have room to park the car in front of the motorhome. On each side we have 25 to 30 feet of space to the next RV. Yes, there are seasonal park models here, but they are all very nicely maintained. We have been RV'ing for 37 years and rate this campground as a 7 or 8. You will not be disappointed. Oh, almost forgot to mention: it's only a short 3 miles drive to the boardwalk of Ocean City, NJ. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. It was our first time at this campground. Upon check in we were told that we would have to pay an extra fee because it was supposed to be a hot weekend and everyone would be using their air conditioners! A good percentage of the park is seasonal, park model trailers so it has the trailer park theme. It is NOT big rig friendly, roads are narrow with many trees and only one road out. Many trees also meant many bugs, gnats, mosquitoes, and ants on everything! The pool area was nice but open to the public so it got crowded along with parking near the entrance. Wi-Fi only in a small area. Playground nice and looks like they're upgrading around the tennis court. The younger staff were friendly and helpful but management was rude & discourteous. There are a lot of campgrounds in this area and we will stay somewhere else next time. Definitely won't be back! We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is located near Ocean City NJ and is convenient to Cape May County shore points. We were happy with the wood like setting and the location to the shore. However, this campground is NOT big rig friendly. There are NO pull-throughs in the campground and because of trees and narrow roads, it is virtually impossible to back in without major effort as well as inevitable damage to the coach. Wi-Fi is only available at the snack bar and the service is not reliable. Management has changed and the friendly atmosphere we knew for 5 years has disappeared. The pool is very nice and fairly well-kept. The downside is that the owners open it to the public so it can be extremely crowded at times. We are disappointed in the change of management and in the rudeness that was shown to so many campers.It is not very camper-friendly. We will not return to this campground.

We have stayed at this campground for 5 years. The woodsy setting is nice and the campground is close to Ocean City NJ. It is not suitable for large rigs. There are so many trees and the roads are narrow, so it is very hard to back in. There are no pull-in sites available. The pool is Olympic size and well-kept. The downside is that the owners open the pool to the public so it is pretty crowded most days. The owners are not friendly and the office manager is very abrupt and arrogant. We could not get out of our site when leaving because of the trees, so we were 10 minutes late for checkout. The manager would not give us the free nights we had earned until we persisted. If you have a small camper, it would be easier to back in. The activities are held on weekends only, but there is a great arts and crafts program on Thursdays and Saturdays. I would not return to this campground because of the changes that have occurred in management. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

When we arrived,site was full of cigarette butts and wood ashes. The overly solar heated to 95 degrees swimming pool is packed on the weekends, as it is open to the general public. Place is probably 75% permanents. Access roads are very narrow and turns are tight. I would have given it a slightly higher rating if it were about $40 /night.

We stayed at this campground just as a retreat from the rainy weekend near our home. It was only a two hour ride south so it was worth it. The staff seemed friendly enough and being off season, allowed us to essentially pick our own spot. What we found was a campground that was being allowed to become rundown. The picnic tables were rotting and the fencing around the tennis court had the gates lying on the ground. Perhaps since this was the next to last weekend they were planning on going over it after the park closed for the winter. We did notice that a high percentage of the seasonal occupants were living in the "Park Trailer" style mobile homes with attached sun rooms. It reminded me more of a trailer park then it did a campground. The main road in and out is pretty tight for a 37 foot MH so you have to look close to miss the trees. Although they advertise Wi-Fi, we were only 200 yards away from the office and had such a weak signal that it was useless. When we pulled out I decided to fill my Propane tank but found I should have asked how much first. At $4.00 per gallon that cost me $67.00. Live and learn. Although we did have a pleasant stay, this was near the shore so the sites were 100 percent sand and that was too much of a hassle keeping it out of the motor home that we most likely won't go back. I'll look for a place with cement or gravel when I do go back to the shore. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our first camping trip ever! Staff very nice. Campsites in good shape. Pleasantly quiet for Memorial Day weekend. They put in some great new play equipment. They still have some older things but my 3 year old daughter loved the big slide. We paid for firewood to be delivered to our campsite and all went well. Showers and bathrooms were very clean and looked to be recently remodeled. Only criticism was that the walkway to the restrooms was a little dark. Great campground!!

Nice family campground. Activities for the kids and nice swimming pool. Also it was a great location for visiting Ocean City Boardwalk and Beach. One drawback was it is definitely not big rig friendly. We have a 30 ft travel trailer and felt like we hit every tree branch from the front gate to our site. Roads are very narrow and winding. Other campers were really friendly seasonal and transient alike. Staff was knowledgeable about area. We would stay here again. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is just wonderful. The sites are wooded and well-landscaped. There are activities on the weekend such as bingo, ice cream, night swimming, dances. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We have been coming here for three years, and this year we are staying until August. The roads are a little tight, but we were able to put our 43 foot MH in our site with no problem. This is an excellent place for children because of the playground, pool, bike riding areas, and arts and crafts building. We camped at Whippoorwill Campground in a Motorhome.
