Park is very sandy and uneven. Do not go after a rain storm. My problem is that during the night, my electricity went off. Went to the front office and called the emergency number five times with no answer. I then knocked on a campers door who was familiar with the park and he showed me a breaker box that had possible "tripped". It worked but where was the help from the front office. Spoke to the front office the next day and it was like no big deal to them. She says she was at the gym and didn't receive any calls. Stay away from this place. - Troy650

We only stayed here one night after picking up our travel trailer from the dealership. The site was not level and was muddy since it had been raining for about 24 hours prior to arrival. It was difficult to get a reservation here; we had to call multiple times before we could get someone to confirm. Due to the time of year, the water was turned off. - ZimmyGo

This is an older, heavily wooded RV Park a couple miles from town. The landscaping is hit or miss, with dirt and sand mix roadways throughout. The numerous trees made it very difficult to maneuver our 30' travel trailer into our cramped site; moreover, they held dripping water which continued to drip onto the trailer all night long. The site itself was not level, and would have required two Lego blocks if we had bothered (we were only staying one night.). Sewer connection on our unlevel site was so high as to virtually prevent draining. There is a small camp store with a few essentials. Staff was polite but not exactly warm. We had no issues with cable TV (70 channels), but WiFi was so slow (0.1 Mbps, unsecured) as to be all but useless. For the money, this park is highly overvalued. - Llando88

Great county park. Lots of trees and wonderful trails along with a small pretty lake. Rangers were very nice and drove through the campsites regularly. Sites spaced out very well. Needed an extra hose to reach the water. Site mostly level. Watch out for the tree limbs! - Bonniem10

This is a rustic campground. Two sites share a water spigot so you need 75 ft or so of water hose. It was near about full on a Saturday but pretty deserted by Sunday afternoon. It was tight for a 38 ft motorhome to get into the site. No satellite TV or over the air with an internal antenna. - mrracechaser

Very glad to have discovered this park. My daughter lives in Aberdeen NJ and I'm glad to have a place to park the RV while visiting her. This park has a marvelous network of trails through the pine barren woods and around the pond. There are playgrounds and beaches (although while I was there it was a little chilly to swim).
The campsites are well separated and quite large. The water hookup is shared so if you want to leave it hooked up you will probably need a second hose. There is no sewer at the campsites but a good dump station is available.
The place gets really busy on the weekends, but you get it to yourself during the week. - Clyndes

We stayed two weeks in late September, and our trailer must have been pelted by 1000 acorns (no exaggeration, about 1 every 5 minutes) during our stay, and MANY during a storm one night. We need wifi for our jobs and it was not solid, dropping out 4-5 times per day, sometimes for 15 mins or more, and we were within 50 ft of the access point. Roads and sites are mainly dirt, and they get very messy when it has rained recently. We longed for grass or a better/bigger mat to wipe our feet on. Staff is very nice, and the campground is VERY quiet compared to others on the weekend. Seems like it's about 15 mins to get anywhere except to the gas station, but it's a nice quiet place. - ObjectsInMotion

This campground was recommended to us by our RV tech who had been working on doing some upgrades to our motor home. It did not disappoint. The road in is wide with no overhanging trees. The road to our site was also easy to navigate. And the site we had, one of two pull thru sites was actually almost perfectly level. All utilities were easy to reach making hookup a breeze. There was plenty of room to extend both slides. The WiFi was not working when we first arrived but a call to the office and it was corrected immediately and we never had a problem after that. The staff in the office were pleasant, polite, and professional. The price we felt was high, but since this was our first "shake down" run with our recently purchased motor home we were willing to pay it. We'll definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - William T

This park has really narrow gravel roads; we were told to NOT go one way as i'd hit a tree!! With the number of trees in this park (NOT a resort as the sign advertises) why not just cut it down?? We ended up in the one "pull through" site based on the length of our 41' fifth wheel. Good thing as most of the sites are way too short. Anybody hooking up their trailer as they were leaving? were sticking out into the road so you couldn't pass until he was gone. Dumb! Our "30 AMP" power could not even handle our smaller AC unit, first time in about 50 parks I've been to. I asked a worker who was driving by in a cart, he explained that the owners were "upgrading" the sites to 50 Amp. NOT! there was no sign of any upgrading as I drove through the whole park. The sewer pipe was sticking out of the ground way too high; with my supports under the hose, I still had 4" of uphill climb for my sewer. This park is not worth $63.00; should be in the $30 range. Not impressed with this "resort". - North America in 90 days

This was a nice resort, but we didn't use the facilities. They have 2 pools, bocce ball, basketball, mini golf, activities in the summer. We were there on a rainy week. Being all sand, it made for a mess walking the dog. I will say we got in and out with our 40' rig, but it was very difficult. There is an escort to help and he was very helpful. Lots of trees, no satellite, they had cable, we had fhu 50 amp, unhooked by office, verizon signal on and off, wifi available. Appreciated the recycle bin. The traffic noise is there if you are parked in back. Our spot was quiet. Spots were roomy, but felt crowded as they were every which way and no sense of privacy at all. - dorcol

Wooded park but road noise is evident. Jet traffic into and out of McGuire. A lot of rules (walk dogs only on your site, can't use your washer/dryer, no pitbull or pitbull mixes), seemingly ignored and not enforced. A lot of seasonal sites. Narrow roads, tight turns. Ok for an overnight.
Follow the web site directions rather than the GPS. Roads leading to the campground are good. - jplante4

Great mini golf course, very challenging. The owner was one of the most helpful and accommodating to all our needs. Propane is available upon arrival to park. - Tip Tam

We stayed at this park during the 4th of July. It is a run down trailer park more than an RV.Their are small children running around all day unsupervised with a lake and is very noisy all day and night. While we were there there was a car chase involving two drunks and one of them drove his truck into the lake. Cable did not work, water lines were full of air, bathrooms and showers were filthy, laundry room always flooded and machines not working.The worst was the geese every morning and the tons of crap they left at your campsite. We would not return if it was free. Would not recommend. - scb

We drove through this camp ground. Lots of full time campers with some very old campers. The grounds were not kept up at all. Nice lake. Pot holes in the driveway area that you could lose a small car in. Talked to some locals and they said to stay away due to plenty of drugs and convicts. - Jodee

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

This is a very rundown park. The roads are dirt roads with muddy ruts every couple of yards. Too many to avoid. The RV is on dirt. The grassy areas are all overgrown. There are some sites that are either permanent or semi permanent that someone has upgraded with pea gravel. Then there are other RVs that are trashy and an eyesore. It has great potential but needs lots and lots of work. Besides the horrible roads, the miniature golf has numerous holes that are unplayable because of broken items on the holes. The pool looks very nice, although it wasn't quite warm enough to use. I think it's a great place for little kids, as they have swings, slides, climbing equipment, bikes, etc. that appear to be in working order. The "beach" area is muddy dirt with goose poop all around. - Gusie

We chose this park despite it's reviews because of it's location near our family. I feel the reviews do not reflect fairly on this park. The pluses for us are it's location (right near Six Flags), the friendliness of the staff, and the shaded sites. It has an "outdoorsy" feel. It is not an RV Park but a family campground in the traditional sense. The main road in (Reed Rd) has now been paved. The campground roads still need some work but if you drive slowly, they won't cause any problems. The owners seem to be working non-stop in upgrading the park. We weren't there on the weekend but it looks like they have a full schedule of activities. My only complaint is that some of the seasonal sites have too much clutter but it is early in the season and maybe they will be cleaned up as the season gets started. - NH RVer

Stopped to spend 4 nights at this campground originally due to its proximity to New York City via train. We stayed in spite of the negative reviews and were prepared for the worse. What a pleasant surprise this turned out to be. Valid complaints were stated about the roads into and in the campground being bumpy and narrow. This was accurate and much work could be done to improve these conditions. None of the conditions are severe enough to damage the trailer or tow vehicle however and once you are in and set up it is a very nice place to camp. As I said to the clerk in the office we are set up, the site is level, the water, electric and sewer all work and we get great satellite reception. In addition, the office personnel are super nice and very accommodating. What more could you expect and the Passport rate was honored in the busy season which is something many of the Passport Parks do not do. To top things off in addition to providing me with a great rate they gave me an additional $20.00 first time customer discount which was not anticipated. I would highly recommend this as a great place to camp if your plans take you to NY City or to Six Flags which is about 4 miles from the CG. Enjoy. The train station to NY Penn Station is about 21 miles from the CG. Rate includes Passport discount in addition to a first-time customer discount and is averaged for the 4 days. The site was sunny because this is what I requested in order to get good satellite coverage. - Rvdixie1

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

We stayed here for a week because of its location. It is the closest campground to the beach in this area of NJ. Having said that, we will probably not stay here again. It is just not designed for a 30' motorhome.
We knew going in there were no hookups, but access to the dump station required contortionist maneuvers. Originally, we were going to use the campground showers and bathrooms, but they were just awful. It was incredibly difficult to get level. This campground is better for small rvs, tents, and pop ups. - Full-Time-RVer

In over 2 years of full timing all over the US where we stay primarily in state parks this is hands down the worst we have been in. It's too bad since there are very few state parks in NJ that will allow RVs over 25' but that was the least of our problems. Add $5/day/pet and $17.50 "service charge" for a campground with no hook ups, no water available (see below) and an unacceptable women's showers. Registration is at a site 3/4 mile BEYOND the entrance to the campground in an area that cannot accommodate large rigs (we are 33' and could not have) The site we reserved (#4) was supposedly big enough for a 33' rig-it was 33'6" long-rutted and sloped, dirt, sand and small branches as a surface; and 11' 9" wide (between trees that would not allow extension of an awning) We were able to change though the site was still sloped-end to end and side to side. First attempt to get water from the pedal operated spigot was unsuccessful. The water spews from the pedal area but not the spigot. 2nd attempt at a further spigot-water still comes from pedal area but also from spigot UNTIL a hose is connected. Then it spews from the pedal area and every other opening on the apparatus-up, down and out, EXCEPT the spigot. The third spigot next to the bathhouse has no water at all. A call to the office brings the "full time maintenance man" within 15 min who proceeds in the face of a pump (#2) apparatus taped from bottom to top, to say "it needs to be fixed." To be fair, he was very nice and took us to the maintenance garage where we were able to fill our tank. The trip to the showers the next morning was as disappointing. 3 showers-2 had only cold and of those 1 no pressure since the shower head. The handicapped shower had warm water for about 10 seconds of the 15 sec push button allotment but ended with lukewarm with water spraying from both upper and lower heads and no control. I don't like to write bad reviews but we could not recommend this place at all. - edc1951

Not sure how this park got such good reviews unless it was for location and/or activities. $25/night (for non-NJ residents) and a $5 reservation fee and no hookups. I have to wonder what they're doing with the money, because it's certainly not campground improvements. The bathrooms are clean but in dire need of updating. Broken shower heads, no shelving in sink area, scratched mirrors, etc. Even though they say bears are active in the area, the dumpster lid was broken in half (perhaps the result of the bears?). I only saw staff in the campground twice (and that was probably for cleaning). Noise from the interstate is audible but bearable. I probably wouldn't stay here again. - MSSW

Site sloped down from the rear to the front so entry stairs very high. Sewer cap behind the pad at the middle of the pad. Rear tires at the end of the pad. Thirty feet from sewer compartment uphill to a 7" pipe, not a 5". Unusable. Obviously never looked at an RV or talked with anyone. Envelope at gate says drop envelope at Bld C39. No map. Our site was on a poorly marked and gravel road. Been to numerous bases and camps. This is the first I would never return to. - Navychop

Nice park. Large concrete pads with (mostly) elbow room between the sites. Nicely mowed and manicured lawn. Blazing fast Wifi. It is quiet with some shady, some sunny sites. The base's location is very close to catching train or ferry for NYC and the Jersey Shore. The Jersey Shore came as a very pleasant surprise to me as it was new, clean, active with parallel boardwalks and pavilions. Gorgeous homes across the street. A real pleasure to go see. The base is small and the NEX isn't much more than a 7-11, but it is well kept and security is tight. There are a couple of things I would warn you about. When you first drive in to the base you will see a very strange entrance. Go left and make the big loop around to the big building. Yes, you'll drive in to the building to get ID'd. They will check the ID's of everyone in the vehicle. That's the first warning. The second warning is this. You'll be instructed to turn right on T-1 and if your assigned sight is 9 through 15 to make the first right off of T-1 into the park. Do not turn on that first right unless you're only 10' long. Go about 75 feet further, turn right then 75 feet and you'll see a gravel pass through to sites 9 through 15 that is actually wide enough. That first right is only about 10' wide with curbs on both side and a fire hydrant on the corner. You'll see what I mean when you get there. The sewer hook ups are at the back/wrong side of the sites. No bid deal, just have a long sewer hose. We enjoyed the park and the area. - jomark

We stayed here for two weeks, including over Labor Day, and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Upon arrival at the gate, we were given a welcome packet with our site number and information on where the office is to check in after setting up. When you arrive, you will pull in through a large building which is the ID check. Stay in the right lane, since the left is for commercial deliveries. The sites are long and paved and very easy to back into, but the connections are not placed in the best spots. The power pedestal is located at the back of the pad, and was a stretch for the length of our cable, so check your power cable before you park. The sewer connection is the worst I've ever seen, it is located in the middle of the pad right under where our axels were. I had to crawl under the axels to connect the sewer, and had to remove part of the piping from the plug because it was sticking up four inches high. That aside, everything else was great.
It was quiet and you have enough room to not be on top of your neighbors. Although we did have an issue with one neighbor who had guests over and blocked our parking access, so I had to go ask them to move, even though they were sitting outside and watched us pull up and still did nothing until I asked. The utilities worked well, no cable TV, but over the air channels were fine and wifi is standard Navy GoWifi. The laundry room has three washers and dryers and all worked well. It was perfectly located to visit our family and be able to catch the train to NYC. There is no commissary or exchange on base, but a Super Walmart is about 10 minutes away, and I recommend visiting Delicious Orchards just up 34 for great baked goods, fruits, vegetables and deli meat. The base is small, but we still had plenty of areas to walk our dogs without worrying about traffic.
Aside from the connection locations, it is a very nice campground and we would definitely return. - pfogleboch
