Limited facility with about 25 of the 50 campsites open to campers up to about 22' in length. We camped here in the winter on a unusually warm weekend. The campground, like all NJ State Park campgrounds, has no hookups. The shower facility was open and hot showers are available all winter. Several of the campsites are along the lake and allow canoe / kayak access right from your site. (# 10 and # 25 seem to be the best but others are available). In the summer there is a functioning beach area for swimming. The lake is quiet except for the occasional ATV riders in the area of which the park police continually chase away or otherwise enforce their restrictions. The location is ok for a day or two if you're running on your own power and water. In addition to decent kayaking / canoeing there are a few small trails for hiking on the opposite side of the campground. There is a two night minimum when reserving online but if you reserve in person during non peak weeks the park staff will accommodate you. - Jim and Ben

We only stayed a weekend, barely used the restrooms, but saw enough to know this place has seen batter days. It's like it has the bones of a very nice resort: guard house (unattended for years), nice fences, large pool, wide sites, large grassy play area (used to be grassy), huge gathering hall, but now everything is in disrepair or needs maintenance badly. However, the staff here are super nice, eager to please, and helped us out when we got into a jam and had to leave early due to a family-related issue we couldn't control. That offsets a lot in my book. - ObjectsInMotion

Rate reflects 8 nights. No discounts. I did not use any of the facilities. The pool is large and there is a wide open play area for children. They gave me a pull-through that wasn't quite ready for an occupant. They are updating the sewer lines so the connection pipe was quite high making it difficult to use gravity to empty the tanks. I opted to just use the dump station on the way out. Site numbering is a bit wacky. When looking at the park map, I counted five #1s. So each section has a #1. Confusing to say the least. The roads need some attention but overall, I think they are trying to overcome the previous bad reviews. The park was close to empty except for the long-term guests that pretty much had their own area. I did have some difficulty getting the Wi-Fi. Pretty quiet. - RVingMe

This is a very busy camp ground. The spots are shaded and some, like mine was hard to level. The staff was nice to a point. - Vanslam

RV Resort?? More like the LAST RESORT. What a pit. One (barely working) shower for whole campground. No laundry, no amenities other then a overgrown pond.
Only good thing I can say about the office staff is they're rarely there: so the abuse they espouse is kept to a minimum. AVOID THIS PLACE unless of course it's your LAST RESORT.
Lots are very close and have a fire ring. Site surface is dirt. - Jeff AP

This park is mainly privately owned RV lots, with park model units ( they look like log cabins). There are a few RV lots, but most are in disrepair. The developer is presently in a legal battle with the HOA, thus all rents have to be paid to the County Sheriff. Our rate is based on a monthly rate. I would stay away from this park until legal issues are resolved. The wireless worked well; TV is very poor; the cable is just an old fashioned CATV. - BillI

Laurel Pond is a money making scam! We stayed here in our RV in one of their "Luxury" sites. The website shows beautiful, clean, well maintained sites. In reality you get a dirty, muddy site over grown with bushes. The "president" or "manager" moves you in, collects your money, and is never to be seen or heard from again until he wants more money. There has been a huge amount of problems with our stay at Laurel Pond: 1) Most importantly, the owner did not pay the electric bill for 3 months, therefore causing the office, wifi, and water well pump to shut down. Meaning we were without water for 2 days with no end in sight. The Health Department then came through and shut the campground down and ordered everyone to vacate or pay fines. Some of these people had just paid $1600.00 to stay in the lodge for a month and will not be refunded. We paid $585.00 to rent an RV site for a month and were told to leave with two weeks still left on our rental agreement. 2) The water is nasty! It is untreated well water and will ruin anything porcelain or plastic in your RV! It is a simple fix, but the owner refuses to remedy the situation. 3) The Sheriff's Department showed up with a Writ of Execution stating that the owner owed money, and a lien was placed on the property; therefore all those who are renting will now pay rent to the Sheriff's Department. Shortly after this was served, the owner came by and demanded that we pay him and not the sheriff which is illegal. He was hoping to be paid under the table. 4) There are zero amenities; everything is over grown and not taken care of at all! We did not even have a picnic table at our site which is pretty standard at even the most basic campgrounds. 5) Owner will not answer the phone, even in the event of an emergency on site. 6) Owner tries to intimidate you with legal mumbo jumbo that doesn't make any sense at all to get you to pay him cash instead of doing the legal thing. 7) The lodges are gross! The laundry (linens) is washed inside and hung out to dry, sometimes for weeks or days and placed on the beds with ticks, hair (human and pet) and other gross things on them. The lodges also stink like mold or trash. 8) The owner has horrible record keeping skills and "guesses" the meter readings. Some people were charged $400.00 for one month's electric from the owner's "best guess" at meter reading. We took pictures of ours and wrote it down and our bill was still wrong. I could go on and on, but these are the most important things you need to know. Do not stay here unless you like to give away money! - HappilyUprooted

Very nice park. Rustic with sandy dirt roads, a little narrow but fine for our 33' mh. Sites were sandy, ours was shady, fire rings at each site, a little narrow but fine for 2 slide outs. Overall the campground is older and could use a little sprucing up, but had lots of activities for kids, two playgrounds, very nice clean pool, and a DJ on Sat. night. They had paddle boats for rent and fishing in the lake. Looked like several permanent sites. Staff was friendly. Pool was kept open another week because of hot weather. Visited family living in NJ, will definitely stay again. Close to Six Flags and the shore. - RockyRanch

Stayed for the weekend with very young grand-kids. They didn't notice the very small size of the pull thru site nor the fact that it was overgrown. Seemed like MOST of the sites were seasonal/permanent with many in great disrepair. Speed limit of 5 mph is a fantasy, no way to go that fast in a MH because of the many potholes/craters. Pool seemed very nice although not used. Many sites were WELL decorated for Christmas in July which the grand-kids enjoyed. While the campground is kinda rundown, the campers/guests were EXTREMELY friendly. Campground was chosen due to proximity to my kids' house. - Vrrmm Rydr

This CG is a bit on the old side. Dirt roads with ruts and uncut grass. There are some eye sore sites. - Michael47

This is the best campground I've ever been to! The staff was great and friendly. My kids spent a lot of time at the parks and at the craft shack. They loved it! We set up camp by the Wading River. The water and electric made life easier. We were able to plug in our radios and play music the whole time! Everyone followed the rule of no noise pass 10pm. The store and arcade were fun and entertaining! My kids would spend time playing games and buying slushies. The bathrooms were cleaned as much as they could be very frequently. I would always see staff cleaning the bathrooms and would always say hi. The ladies that worked the store were polite as well. They tried to speed up the signing in process to the best of their ability. The ATM inside the store helped too. If I was short on cash I could use it. It was so convenient. I trusted my kids to wander around because every one was so nice. Everyone watched out for the kids and helped them if they needed. My kids usually came back to our site on a golf cart! This was the best choice for a summer vacation ever! I would recommend this campground to anyone! - 00Camper00

Site fee covers two adults. Children/teens are extra and this boosted our site fee up to $80 per night for three nights. Check-in - The office/store appeared dirty. Not just dirt from the ground, but old and run down. The staff was just plain old nasty. A little further into our stay and we realized the employees all seem to be seasonal people or maybe they just lived there all year. Either way, not nice at all. Site - Was narrow and not deep at all. Had a constant smell of sewer. Asked to be moved and was accommodated, but new site smelled the same. The smell of sewage kept us from eating outdoors. Amenities - Bare bones. A hayride for little kids and that's about it. The pool was closed. This campground is not family friendly at all. All in all - The place seems to be a party place. Speeding golf carts all over the place driven round and round all day and night by people with drinks/beers in their hands. They stop to talk after a few hours, but by then they are so drunk you have no idea what they are saying. Just walk away from them. The river was nice but the "beach" area was completely littered with trash. We canoed and had a great time on the river. The bathrooms were deplorable. Not just old and run down but absolutely filthy. Thankfully we didn't have to use them. This place is so over rated it's not funny. Even if it were just the two of us, we wouldn't return. Just way too sleazy for me. - travlinfamily

This was our fourth stay in many years. I've reviewed this campground before. I wanted to review again now that I've had more experiences in other campgrounds. I feel that I can objectively tell you that if you want to get away, midweek, on a wilderness site, this is as good as it gets in South Jersey. It's good for short term. We found the front desk staff, as well as the workers around the campground to be pleasant. The pool was clean. Remember, this is the pines. Nothing fancy. Lots of families, lots of kid activities. Not a destination, but nice to sit by the river with friends. - monkeypants

The woman on duty said "cash only" for our 3 night stay, which surprised me. But we ponied up the cash. Finding this place is something of a challenge since it's partially down a dirt road and no signs to lead you to it. Our site was near the regulars because we wanted a SW exposure for our satellite antenna, so we were spared the overnight area, but trees still blocked us, so no TV. Also the sites are very close together and the trailers there look as if they haven't moved in years. Site was level but very sandy and without a rug we were dragging it through the trailer. Bathrooms were clean but rustic. The bottom of the doors on the lady's room stalls were very high and consequently not very private. Showers very well used but clean. - Wendywoods

One of our favorite campgrounds. Approximate 12 miles from Long Beach Island. Nice, friendly, quiet campground (with no scheduled activities). It is located in the Pine Barrens. WARNING: The entrance road is very rough. - artspe

What a wonderful campsite. Very clean and well maintained. There aren't many transient sites, mostly seasonal, but the seasonals are in a section by themselves, with a carded gate entry. All of us transients are together, which is great because you don't have to deal with all of the sheds, decks and fences the seasonals put up.
The staff was accommodating and friendly, especially when we wanted to stay a few hours longer to go to Long Beach Island. It's a short trip to LBI. The site is large with brush in the back. Only 30 amp, and we blew a circuit with our 2 air conditioners. First time this happened at any campground, but the staff came right out and reset the circuit breaker.
You have to back into the dump station, but they have a pump out person that comes around every day. Swimming pool and putt putt. The putt putt needs some work, but it was fine for us to play and spend some time. Will defintely go back! - Kevie

Checked into a premium site. I had no cable TV Friday night. Saturday went to office and was told I needed a cable box. That didn't work either. Water leaked and had to get an extra washer to fit in adaptor. Also on Friday requested to be first pumped out on Sunday, since there is no sewer or dump station. Sunday I was hooked up and ready to go. Had to go find lady to pump me out and she said was never told of my request (which I had double checked Saturday night ). Also went in pool area. Saw hot tub / whirlpool in pics. Was really looking forward to this after 8 hour trip, only to be told by pool attendant he cannot turn on the jets. He isn't allowed. Nice place, but very disappointing. And definitely NOT worth the $$$. - joanner

This park is undergoing long needed renovations under new ownership and the effort is paying off. My score is an "8" but I would not be surprised if it is a "9" soon. The buildings are looking good as are the pool and play areas. Gravel sites share utility pedestal area so campers are close on the "business" side while the living side is large with fire pit, charcoal grill and a picnic table. My site was pretty level but did require use of my Anderson leveler. WiFi and the Honey Truck are included. There are no sewer hook-ups. The seasonal area is separate and most sites show signs of long-time residence. We don't live far away so this may well be a twice a year pre and post busy season trip for us. Staff was excellent and very friendly. - Bandguy

Terrible campground. Overpriced compared to other campgrounds in the area, especially since they have no sewer hookups. The two mile dirt road leading to the campground was full of potholes and was washboard-like because of the rain. Interior roads and sites are narrow with low hanging branches. Many low hanging electrical or cable wires. The wire to the security camera broke off our vent hatch when we arrived because it was hanging so low and we couldn't see it at night. There was broken glass all over our campsite. Internet and cell phone service was almost non-existent. When we left we had to have someone get on top of our trailer to lift branches and wires out of the way as we drove out. We would not stay here again. - poema304

This is a rustic camping area located on the Wading River. Excellent location for canoing in Wharton State Forest. This is not for motorhomes or travel trailers. Perfect for tents and popups. There is drinking water available as well as a usable bath house. Nothing fancy. Lots of Scout groups camping in here. Watch out for loose sand spots, you can get your vehicle stuck. Patrolled by NJ Park rangers who do enforce posted regulations. This location for those that enjoy and are equipped for rustic camping only. - hiker1

The site was long & level enough so we did not have to unhook our TT. The Wifi worked well & we appreciated the $23/nite Passport America. But the park is more a trailer park with permanent, very old, unkempt trailers filling most spots. Old furniture, mattresses, heaps of rubbish & debris at many sites. Sewer hookups were open. We did not feel safe. We hooked up the electric & stayed inside for the night. We had difficulty getting out in the morning due to cars, boats, & work vehicles parked in the roadways. We would not return. - R&S

$60 / night ($30 w/ Passport America) for w/e/s/I/c. We generally don't use campground amenities so price is a big factor of where we choose to stay. I don't care if there are older units on site since I understand everybody has different financial resources. However, I don't understand the extreme reviews for this campground -- either 5 star or 1 star. This campground is mostly permanent residents in older trailers. No problem with that! However, the sites are very cluttered and not at all attractive. During quiet hours there were some dogs barking and some noisy residents but nothing extreme. The individual who greeted us in the office was very nice, escorted us to our site and helped us get parked. Very generous Passport American policy (any days up to 14 nights). - Teddi2

As many others have said, it is a seasonal or full timer park where nothing is enforced -- dogs without leashes, loud music, dirty/cluttered sites. In the office they have a flat top grill and right next to it I saw the manager put a bowl of cat food on counter and let the cat jump up to eat. It smelled like cat urine in the office. Bathrooms are blue - floor to ceiling. Spartan but clean. Wifi was only saving grace of park. - GConthemove
