Will not be returning

We did not have a great experience this time around. 7 hours after set up, the"camp host" came by and told us and all of our immediate neighbors we needed to move because we were all 3 feet back to far. Apparently we're not supposed to back up past the electrical boxes. There are no markings indicating that and also if that is the case, they should have people dedicated to guiding people into their sites. Our neighbors had already been there for over 2 days before being told to move. Upon arrival, the site was dirty(empty cups, bottle caps,& cigarette butts). The pool furniture was old and rusty. The day of check-out, someone was on my site, 3 hours before checkout cleaning out the fire ring and I hadn't even had a chance to cook breakfast over it yet. We paid resort prices and have stayed at MUCH better resorts for the same price. After this, we unfortunately will not be returning.

Beautiful state park with plenty to do!

We stayed in the Pickerel Point of the park. We had full hookups (20/30/50 amp, water & sewer). There's no cable but we were able to pickup about 6 channels with our digital antenna. This place is absolutely stunning. The lake is crystal clear and the beach is spotless. You absolutely have to bring a kayak/inflatable boat, but if you don't own one, don't worry, you can rent one. All of the sites were spacious. The only complaint I had (which really isn't a real complaint) was that the grass needed cutting as it was pretty long and uncomfortable to walk through. Pickerel point is the most action packed part of the park. LOTS of kids and people enjoying themselves. If you're looking for a more secluded experience, the park has sections for that as well. We'll definitely return!

Tight but fun

Sites were SUPER tight. We were packed in like sardines. We had a site right on the river which was absolutely beautiful. Navigating to the site itself definitely tests your skills when you have a total rig length of 52'. Electric ran below 110 volts the entire weekend and the water had a brownish tint to it. It was a VERY hot weekend so I should mention that everyone had their air running. Activities were cute and entertainment was fun. Playground was huge and well maintained. Staff was friendly and attentive. We witnessed a little girl poop in the pool. We immediately told the front office and they acted immediately and took the proper steps to ensure everyone's safety. Charging extra for certain activities(bumper boats, mini golf,& jump pillow) was strange to me. Golf cart rental was very reasonable($139 for the entire holiday weekend) but the golf cart definitely needed some repairs but we managed. The dog park could have been better maintained(overgrown). All in all, we had a fun weekend and depending on your type of camping, this place could have very mixed reviews. Not the nicest place we've stayed and not the worst either.

Too expensive for what you get

By reading the reviews some people love the place while others hated it. We we're somewhere in the middle. My reaction was"meh". We stayed on premium site number 54 from Wednesday until Sunday at a total of$343. At that price, I was expecting MUCH more. The place is very quiet until Friday but noise is no issue to us as we love being in the middle of the action. Most people also respected quiet time. The entire campground is sand and gets very dusty and messy. This was the dirtiest campground we've stayed at, meaning the trailer and truck needed a full bath once we got home. The activities were cute and the pool and splash pad was really the only main attraction. Site was gravel with a small concrete patio and decently sized. All hookups worked as required so no complaints there. Make sure you bring everything you need with you, because this place is literally in the middle of nowhere and a minimum 15 minutes ride to any type of civilization. Don't plan on arriving after dark as there is no type of lighting other than what the other campers have lit up. Overall we had a decent time, but for the price, we've stayed at much nicer places and most likely won't be coming back.

You get what you pay for!

This was absolutely a top notch park. Everything was pristine and we'll maintained. The campground was completely full and we had zero issues with amenities or unruly campers. Every facility was beautiful. We didn't even have to leave the park because there was always something to do. We rented a golf cart from an outside course which was SUPER expensive, so it would be nice if the campground offered their own rentals, but if that's our only complaint, we're happy campers. Our favorite part was the dog park. I've never seen anything like it and wish we had access to something like this everywhere. We we're on site 58 which backed up to the splash park. It was one of the largest sites we've ever stayed in. The sand/dirt was a bit of a nuisance but not a deal breaker. The water/electric was positioned perfectly that we could have gotten away with using 5 foot connections. The garbage cans on every site was a wonderful addition which they empty everyday for you. Love, love, loved it here. We will return!

Simple and close to Knoebels!

Very well maintained campground very close to Knoebels. This was the last weekend they were open. Kind of upset you do not get to choose your site. We would have preferred a site near the giant open field that backs up to the road, whereas people that were actually put there preferred the site we had instead. It is kind of noisy due to the traffic on the road but that would not have bothered us. Sites were pretty close to each other. You'll get to know your neighbors. Acorns fell off the trees and hit the camper all day and night. Playground is a bit too small, but the fishing pond is pretty. Most of the nicer "waterfront" sites are reserved for their seasonals. We weren't looking too much for an amenity filled campground but preferred a full hook up campground close to Knoebels. We will most likely stay here again next year. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Small but beautiful

Site #271

Full hookups: 20/30/50 amp water & sewer

Very nice/small campground on the Sinepuxent bay. Gets very busy during the weekend, even though it's considered off season but people respect quiet hours. We could hear the live band perfectly from our site which we liked. Not too many planned activities but free shuttle to nearby Berlin & Ocean City.Short drive to all Ocean City has to offer. Clean bath houses and golf cart rental was an added bonus! Highly recommend our site to anyone with littles as you can literally relax at your site while your child plays at the playground! All sites included a fire ring with cooking grate and picnic table. Fairly easy to back in but they do have pull throughs available as well. Site was fairly spacious and campground is SUPER pet friendly!

Great family get away!

We stayed here the last weekend in September and it was wonderful. It's only 6 miles from the famous Wildwood boardwalk but you never have to leave the campground because they have so many planned activities. We stayed in the Ultra VIP section and had plenty of room to back in (total combined length of our truck and trailer is 52'). Nice concrete patio and all hookups worked well.

Awesome location - Family Friendly

You literally CANNOT find a more conveniently located campground in the Pocono area. It is super close to all shopping, outlets, water parks and area attractions. Site I stayed at was huge and had plenty of room to pull through. Seasonals are super friendly. There are scheduled activities intermittently. A quick call to the office will give you an idea what's going on for the weekend.
