& it was a great time! Need to go back now that I’m older…
We had a pop-up so I can’t speak to tent camping at this one!
Like most KOAs with standard activities, family friendly environment.
Campground overview: We visited here in the third week in April. This is a private campground located about 6 miles from Cape May Point and about 4 miles from the beaches. If you are looking at this area to camp- then you know this is an area of lots of history from the WWII lookout tower and lighthouse to the hawk watch observatory.and everything in between. You will not be bored here!
Lots of construction work was going on while we were here in preparation for their busy season which begins Memorial Day Weekend for the region. We were not bothered by this.
There is a small lake (with swimming area) that is stocked for fishing and the overall feel of this park is tranquil. There is a rec center, activity center, tennis courts, 3 pickle ball courts, playgrounds and pool to name a few things. This is off season so the campground did not have the usual KOA bustle and feel of a summer camp for adults.
Campsite : This is a well kept up park with plenty of wooded and shady sites that are a firm gravel and very level. Easy in and out of the park with our 40 feet of Rig. We had a premium pull thru site site with picnic table, grill, porch swing and patio table set along with a large concrete patio. (*note-placement of the sewer necessitated an extension to reach when we aligned our rig with the concrete patio.)
Activities close to park: In addition to the campground activities which are plentiful, the Cape May Bike trail is directly across the street. If you go right, you will be in a very active shopping center area in about 2.4 miles and if you go left you are on your way to the beaches in 4 miles.
The Cape May Ferry is only 4.4 miles away and could be a fun day trip because it will take you to Rebooth and you can explore Cape Henolpen State Park for the day . (We actually took our RV on the Ferry to our next campground) and that successful adventure will be documented at another time.
My take away for this campground is that it is a great location to explore the area and you even have the option of additional day trips in a way that you may not always get to experience….Ferry rides are fun!
Here is a great website that informs you of all the activities the area has to offer from Polar Plunges to wine and brewery trails.
Happy Camping! Pamela and Keith
We've stayed here 2 years in a row. We returned due to all the activities the campground offers for the kids. A nice lake with a giant inflatable slide, floating trampoline, kayak and paddle board rentals. A decent pool that tends to get a bit crowded, but does the trick. We had a blast with a golf cart rental. The campground is rather large, so it felt like a necessity to have a secondary way of getting around easily as a family. Plus it made checking out the entire campground manageable. Bathhouses were clean and well maintained. The campground is a short 5 minute drive from Cape May. Which is also a big reason we've returned. Sunset Beach, The Open Air Mall, and the charm of victorian Cape May are all great reasons to visit.
Campground has decent space at the campsites but you’ll be looking at your neighbors. Nice pool and some of the best looking seasonal Ive seen decked out with tiki bars, etc. Close to the boardwalk and beach.
We were very pleased with the size of our site. The campground was quiet and the bathhouses were clean. We happened to be there when it was 100 degrees so we definitely noticed that the bathhouses weren't air conditioned. We were really happy we didn't have to shower in them since they were so hot. The pool was warm but it could have been cleaner. The lake was so warm that it made us wonder what kind of bacteria was growing in it. Overall we were pleased with our stay and would return again.
The site was nite. We have a concrete pad with a picnic table on it. Gravel and level were we parked the camper. But the seasonal site people were very rude. They would have the music up loud were we could not talk civilly. One man left for over an hour and left his music on. The w/o is we bought was green and of course it smoked when we got it to burn. I will not be going back there again.
