33 Parks near Mays Landing, New Jersey

This park is more of a permanent trailer park than campground. The place is quite scary. Beat up dirty campers where I believe people live year round. The bathrooms were horrific. Bumpy dirt roads throughout. This place was probably once a nice place to camp as I heard so much about it. However, it is currently owned by one of those massive companies that are buying up campgrounds and running them in to the dirt. We left after one night. As I said the place was scary and we did not feel safe there at all. Not for children or families. - travlinfamily

Beware. My family and I stayed there Memorial Day weekend. We arrived on Friday and we were so unhappy we left Saturday even though we were supposed to stay until Monday.The park is in very poor shape with most seasonals who don't maintain their sites. Our electric kept going out to the point where we couldn't really use the A/C. The facilities where very dirty and the camp store was empty for the most part. I guess there's no quiet time as the radios where blaring late into the night and complaining didn't help. We will never stay there again. Guess I should have looked at reviews here first. - Tred66

Tired and neglected. Looks like this could have been a great camp ground decades ago. Water slide, mini golf, lake...all of which looked forgotten. Most sites were over grown. A good deal of seasonal campers; a few of their sites were nice, but most weren't. It wouldn't be a place we I'll return to or recommend to others. - Lisa and tom

In the last couple of years this park has been sold and is owned by one of those large companies that buy up campgrounds. When privately owned, this campground was a pleasure to stay in. Now it's a nightmare.
First, entering and being searched by security. I guess they need to make sure you aren't bringing in wood, but the way the guy acted you would've thought he was looking for a cache of weapons and a truck of drugs! We were a family that obviously had none of the above, but didn't even get a hello. He then visually inspected the inside of our truck and counted the people in it. His attitude is what made it creepy.
Pull over there and go inside. That was the direction given to us. We did and found a mildly chaotic office; nothing out of the norm. People checking in, buying stuff, etc. Our turn came up and we were again not met with a hello but a big ole eye roll. Ok, give me the map and let us get on our way.
Our site was not pond front, but was very tight for the 30 foot trailer. Extremely tight on the left and right. Our site had not been cleaned up from the prior campers and had beer cans, juice boxes, and smoldering logs in the fire pit.
I do not remember ever have an issue with the water at this campground, but the smell, even with a filter on the trailer was absolutely awful. Pure sulfur.
The restrooms were no better and what made them worse is they were dirty. It looks like they only clean them once a day. The staff acts as though you are bothering them, and there is NO SECURITY at night leaving the place loud, with people running all over. Awful, expensive stay. Will never return or ever stay at another place owned by this company. - travlinfamily

Second time staying at Big Timber. Check in takes quite a bit of time by front desk staff, and road can back from all units waiting to get in. Site 187 was mix of grass and sand; and very small width wise but was deep however the back end of the site dropped off so couldn't back RV to far back. Pool was crowded most of the days due to the heat; however it was never over crowded and always were able to find a place to relax in it. Kids enjoyed the lake and activities they provided. Location of campground is pretty much center of Cape May County so if you plan to leave the campground to explore there are plenty of options within a short car ride. - SJEAGLES609

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

Unfortunately this campground is in decline due to the death of the husband and the poor health of the wife. Virtually no activities. The seasonals are leaving and transients are nonexistent. While the other campground, a short drive away is packed. - GlennNJ

I almost don't want to tell you how great a time we had here. This is the most quiet park we have been too. And I don't want to spoil it. The site we had was HUGE!!! Everything worked perfect for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The store was much better than I expected and I saw TV cable for more half the price I had to pay at our previous campground. It rained very heavy this week end and water drained off the site without a problem. We most definitely will be returning. PS if you have a noisy bunch please don't stay here. - GlennNJ

Rate reflects 2 extra kids at $5 each. Overall a nice campground. All facilities are nice, but a little on the older side. Planned activities for the kids. The store had the basics for a campground. Every time we have been here it was very quiet at night. Only negatives were the water pressure was a little low and the grass needed to be cut. (It was a holiday weekend.) This was our third time here and we definitely will be going back. - v3coinshooter

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

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

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

We booked this park as our first RV trip for the season. They advertised as being newly renovated from their previous owner (Blueberry Hill RV Park). When we arrived, we went into the office expecting to see a camping store (as advertised on their website). The store consisted of 4 shelves on a wall with minimal RV items, and a few freestanding snack racks with junk food. No bread, milk, or other items you would expect. I would not call this a "store". We were then lead to our site by a staff member. BTW... Their staff were very friendly (a plus for them). As we passed the pool, we noticed that is was NOT an Olympic sized pool. This again, was in contradiction to their website. Once in our site, we started looking for the "Private Gate to Wal-Mart" as advertised on their website. This gate did not exist for this campground. When we questioned it at the office, we were told that the description used is for their sister campground in Florida. I believe this is false advertising. As for their Activities... My son went to participate in their dodgeball game. No one showed up. Not even their staff came. So much for activities. I went to use their WiFi... It was not free. I would have had to pay (chose not to). Final straw was their sewer system. I did my final dump before leaving. Their system clogged up and I ended up flooding three sites next to me.
Once again... Their staff were very friendly. This is the only reason I'm giving them 3 stars rather then 1.
I would NOT visit here again. Sorry Atlantic Blueberry. You need to update your website to be more truthful. - Davetheroamer

This campground is being updated but it is still nice. The sites are level grass sites and many are pull-through with cable. The 50A sites do not have sewer but do have a gray water hookup with a water hose connection but it backed up the couple of times we tried to use it. They do have a daily pump out service if you sign up before noon. The park has a huge pool and hot tub but the hot tub was out of service. They have free Wi-Fi at the office and very fast pay Wi-Fi at the sites. The host are very nice and helpful and they have several activities going on during the weekends. We would stay here again. - dandg

My wife and I were escorted to our site by two nice gentlemen. They helped us back into site. Only problem was after setting up went to office and following one way signs I wasn't able to make a sharp right turn with just my truck. I asked about getting out at office and the manager was unhappy with the national reservations for putting us in this site because of the difficulty getting out, we wound up backing up out of the area with some assistance. Pool looked very clean and nice but too cold to use that night. Overall impression very nice and we will return. - GlennNJ

We stayed at Thousand Trails / Chestnut Lake while visiting family in the area. The rate was free for 30A hookup for Thousand Trails members / family courtesy card holders. The sites with sewer hookups were pretty nearly full, not a lot of options on where to park. For our 43' motorhome, the sites were a bit tight, particularly getting in/out since the sites are perpendicular to the roads, and the roads are rather narrow - multiple forward/backward passes to park and to leave. There are many geese and when we first arrived, our site was covered with goose poop, but we cleaned it up (plastic gloves and WalMart bags) and didn't have any more geese visit our site during our stay.
Getting to the campground was interesting because there isn't an exit off of Garden State Parkway northbound, so we went past the street, made a u-turn at the next exit, and then exited via southbound Garden State. There was a sign at the turnoff onto the road where the campground is located that there is a 3 ton weight limit bridge ahead, but it is well past the entrance to the campground.
In 20/20 hindsight, it probably would have been better for us to occupy a water/electric site and use the dump station - those sites appear to be much less frequently in use and we would not have had as close neighbors. But, on the positive, we got to meet our neighbors and, as is common in Thousand Trails parks, they were very neighborly! - pattic777

Pool and rec room to equal a top dollar park. Old park. grass and weed spots, with a small amount of gravel woven in as pad. Some have concrete patios. Like a parking lot. Lack of angling the sites is an issue when it comes to feeling boxed in. Staff is very willing to help. Nice lake or pond depends on how you look at it. I would have given cleanliness a 10, except, although clean, the shower curtains had mold on them. There are Geese and you do have to dodge their poop a bit. Lots of very cute goslings. Its ok for a few days. Not all have sewer. - User3274

Updated pool & Jacuzzi with club house. Updated 50A service. Playground. Most sites are grassy pull-through's. Sites appear to be somewhat level. Plenty of grassy area for pet's. - 8345
