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.
The campground is fine. Bathrooms seemed as clean as a state park during a global pandemic can get… my frustration came with the noise level and the site I booked. Sites 14, 16, 59, and 57 (I think) all share a common area. It lacked privacy and our inconsiderate neighbors partied alllllll niggghhtttt llooonngggg as well as many other people in the South campground. After 10pm, the music volume was high and campers were LOUD. I was smart enough to bring earplugs. It's buggy… to be expected but the general vibe here was not my thing. People here just wanted to get sloshed and loud. I wanted a place to crash after hiking and going to the beach all day. 🤣 Mostly my mistake for picking the site I did from lack of familiarity of this campground. Probably will not be back, unless during the week and a more secluded site.
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.
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!
I have stayed here many times over the years, usually for a long weekend. Longer trips were spent there with my parents when I was a kid. I prefer the south shore campsites to the north shore. The sites on the south shore offer a little more privacy and aren't as crammed. I'm particularly fond of the dog friendly loop, its a newer loop and the bathrooms are more modern than the others scattered around.
We have also stayed in the camping shelters a few times and a cabin once. The shelters offer no frills sleeping quarters with two bunks beds, so four beds and closet/pantry on both sides in the rear for food and gear, a wooden table in and pot belly stove for warmth or a one pot meal in the front room. Bathrooms are in a separate building across the road and are shared with the other shelters occupants. The exterior includes a fire pit, picnic table and a fire ring for larger meal prep.
The cabins are a two steps above the shelter with a full kitchen and bathroom with shower, but otherwise rustic, with three sets of bunk beds, a wooden table and two Adirondack chairs in front of a fire place. The screened in porch at the rear of the cabin overlooks the lake and has plenty of room for camp chairs. There is also a picnic table and a charcoal grill outside.
The beach is home to the cleanest, most wonderful lake I have ever set foot in. There are picnic tables and grills scattered all around the beach near the parking lot and it does get crowded in the summer months. There is also a concession stand open in the summer months, serving light fare -- burgers, dogs, ice cream, soda & chips.
