Park has extremely tight, narrow, potholed roads going in. Sites are large which is nice, but it stops dead there. Pitbulls running around unleashed, lots of public drinking and intoxication especially in the front. They rent kayaks and canoes to large groups and they get pretty rowdy right in front of the kids playground. The pool is very small and very crowded. It was dirty and in bad shape; holes in the sides, cracked concrete. People that didn't seem to be staying but coming off tubing trips just hopping in and using the pool. The worst part of our stay was when we saw a seasonal tenant, which most of the campground seems to make up these spots, run out onto his deck with a makeshift spear and throw it at the squirrels that were on his site! His face was twisted up as he threw this spear, the hatred was in his eyes. Thankfully, he had awful aim and missed the four times we saw him do this. Very scary sight to see, all caught on video. I would never recommend this place. We camped at Winding River Campground in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a fun place to camp . It is a true campground nicely shaded with trees and a beautiful shallow river running right along side of it . Yes there are a few older seasonal trailers there but they do not dominate the scenery and all the seasonal campers we met were nice folks . Pool, showers, playground, and the whole campground were clean . A good place for families . Your kids will have a good time . We camped at Winding River Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Our stay was for 1 week. The people at the office were friendly and accommodating. The camp store was well stocked and reasonably priced. Aside from that, I was disappointed. Several seasonal sites resembled what you would find in a run-down trailer park: dirt-caked units with "week-end warrior" additions and/or modifications. I've never seen conditions like that in a campground. The pool experiance was surprising to say the least. Adults drinking alcohol in and around the pool(even though it was posted "No Alcohol"), and smoking around the pool with children present ??? There were no activities during the week, the campground turned into a ghost town Monday to Friday at noon. Our per day charge was $56, including $8/day for or daughter, and $4/day for our son. To me, that was steep considering what we found, saw, and was available. We've stayed at other places that offered much more w/o overcharging us for being a "traditional family."

This park is an older, well-maintained campground with owners who still care about their park, their customers and still give their campers breathing room to have fun. It may not have the technical amenities or the full-time babysitting activities that some campers like, but you can enjoy both worlds of camping; the busy activity weekends and/or the slower back-to-nature weekdays where you can enjoy nature, the river, or venture out for side trips including the beach, the boardwalk, or the excitement of the casinos. I have found Winding River-Mays Landing to be one of the few parks left in the area that still welcome the average camper. We camped at Winding River Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. I would have rated this CG a 9 if a few minor things were different. The site we had was difficult to get into, and once in it was found to be a little less level than I like. This is an older CG and in truth, I hope to see more just like it. Clean, well kept. If they level the sites a bit they will be great. I don't care if they have Wi-Fi or Cable. I personally go camping to camp. I am not looking for concrete pads, built in barbecues, or other items.

A very nice campground. Contrary to what other posts say, I felt the sites were rather spacious. I was, however, disappointed to see that you had to pay to operate the shower. The Egg Harbor river is the best thing about this campground. We went on a three hour tubing trip on the river. It was beautiful and clean cedar water. Didn't use the pool as it looked crowded. I will be camping there again in the future. We camped at Winding River Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The best asset to this campground is the fact that the Great Egg Harbor River runs alongside it. The campground offers canoe rental service, and they drop you off upriver. The Great Egg Harbor River is an excellent river to go canoeing or tubing on. The river is mainly in the shade, it is not deep, its perfect for novices, it has a few spots you can paddle over to the bank and stop and have something to eat (either a pic nic, or at the Palace Outfitters pizza joint). You end up your canoe trip right at the campsite. Just pull your canoe out of the river, and head back to your campsite. It's perfect! The owners are nice people. The pool is nice, but it gets overcrowded when its hot outside. We would prefer more space between sites, as we felt not very woodsy or private. However the other campers were courteous and friendly. This campground is also only like 15-20 minutes from Ocean City NJ, and our family likes going there at night to walk the boardwalk. Wether you are camping there, or just want a day canoe trip, this campground fits the bill! We camped at Winding River Campground in a Tent.
