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. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

$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). We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Truck Camper.

Not a very nice campground from what we've been to across the US. Full (30 amp) hookups is all they have going for them. Roads are gravel, filled with pot holes, and narrow with cars parking on each side. Sites are narrow and short for our 40 footer with very close neighbors. Had meters but no breakers at power post. Staff was put out by visiting campers. The park was mostly run down permanent sites. I just don't understand why people own parks like this? Smaller sized three foot deep pool wasn't inviting with kids running from the bouncey house back to the pool. Chickens, ducks and cats running around the park. Garbage left out at sites. The whole atmosphere of the place was just dirty. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

My husband selected this campground since choices near Toms River were limited. We only had 2 nights, and the other campground required a 3 night stay since it was Memorial Day weekend. The campground did put on a nice welcome BBQ Friday evening, which was a nice touch. However, we would not stay here again. Sites were extremely close, and there are many rundown trailers/campers in here. Our neighbors reported a loud argument was going on the night before we arrived, fueled by alcohol or other substances. The island was scary, with power cords running all over the place, and the rust colored stream was barely moving. Three stars for value, service are based on giving consideration to the location. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for three nights while visiting a friend. There aren't many choices in the area. This place is a dump. Mostly long term residents and clearly not a lot of rules regarding accumulation of junk around the campsites. Roads were very narrow and there was little to no signage to help you navigate the park. We ended up going the wrong way and had to unhook our toad in order to back out.

We were given a "pull through" site but had to back out when we left due to very close trees and other resident's cars parked near the front of our rig.

Could not find the water on my site so I hooked into the water on the next site. I had considerable difficulty finding the electric hook-up as well but finally found it on the back of a large sheet of plywood erected between our site and the site next to us. There was no cover over the electric outlet whatsoever.

I wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

The owner and office help was extremely kind and helpful. The park was very quiet in the back but in front by the office on weekends, it was loud because of activities. I think it's great they try to offer activities for travelers, but it seemed like it was more for the full timers and they have so many full timers. The owner seemed like he keeps a tight rein on the full timers. I didn't have any problems, but I also didn't feel safe enough to take a walk. The entire park is in the woods and it is all gravel, no grass anywhere or patios. You are on top of each other like sardines.

No, I will not stay here again because it was too scary and we felt like we couldn't leave our coach with out the thought that someone would break into it. I feel bad saying this because I think the owner is trying his best. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Good enough. Nice shade. Looks like a lot of resident trailers and not at all like a Luxury Resort. Good laundry. Nice & quiet. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

It is an older park. The staff is very nice and some of the campers are too. Great location for a home base summer vacation. The beaches (20 mins) and other attractions (Six Flags 35 mins) are nearby. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.
