We just returned from a 4 night trip to Baker's Acres. The staff was friendly, our site was large, clean, and the most level site we have ever camped on! We loved the nature trail. We saw deer every time we walked on it. My husband and daughter enjoyed the pool. The playground was nice. We enjoyed the scavenger hunt and Saturday night entertainment. There were very few golf carts and all the cars drove cautiously. We felt our daughter was safe to ride her bike.
Some people might complain about the condition of the roads. We didn't mind them - it kept people from driving too fast. The bathhouse at the pool could use an update but it was clean and the toilets flushed and the spigots worked! The red bathhouse was nice with separate shower/toilet rooms. Our campsite was a good 7 minute walk from the nearest bathroom which was a bit far so a small bathhouse near the nature trail would have been appreciated.
The trip into LBI was an easy one. We borrowed beach tags from the camp store for a fee and headed to the Brant Beach section of LBI.
We usually do all of our own cooking at our camper but we did decide to treat ourselves to a meal at Calloways (about 5 minutes away). They have outdoor dining and mini golf. In non-Covid times they have some amusement rides.
Lots of seasonal campers here give this campground a very homey feel. Our site was decently sized, level, and nicely bordered with trees that gives you a sense of privacy. We stayed here immediately after Covid restrictions were eased so the wifi and cable TV were both out but this was not a big deal for us. Backing my rig into the site, and exiting, was a bit challenging due to the angle and size of the service road but we managed well enough and really enjoyed the area as we were near a short hiking path that was great to take the dogs out. The staff was great, considering that they must have been totally busy from the rush of campers trying to get out after the lockdown. Would definitely return.
Quaint and rustic, heavily wooded. Makes you feel like your camping, not just lined up next to a bunch of campers. Great service and amenities, very friendly and helpful staff ⛺️⛺️⛺️⛺️
This was our 5th year camping at Baker's Acres. Their slogan is "Where friends are made for life" and they couldn't be any more right. This is the friendliest, family run for 50+ years, clean, fun, campground we've been to in a long time.
The Camp Store is large and well stocked. The salt pool is always clean!
Campsites are level and somewhat sandy (You're in the Pine Barrens, it should be expected). The bathhouses near our site were cleaned 2x daily and the best part is, they're private! (Shower, sink, toilet in a 10 room bathhouse).
Check the activities schedule, there is always something fun to do!
Close to LBI and a short drive to Smithville, I highly recommend Baker's Acres!
Clean, private wooded sites. Clean bathhouse, friendly staff. The pool was clean.
I enjoyed my visit. Level site, good for tents. Close to amenities.
