First off if not for the micro-sized campsites, I would have rated this place a top 10. Otherwise, Ceder Creek has everything, nice big and clean swimming pools, basket ball, vollyball and many many kids activities if your into family camping. The lands are very nice, from open well maintained gravel roads to some really nice wooded woods sites with full hookups. There's class three kayaking on the river that's pretty top notch fun and the Jersey shore near by. The staff is friendly and helpful, they include three actual parrots that you meet when you register. The camp store is well stocked and includes a cafe for dining or takeout. As stated initially, the only drawback here are the tiny weenie site lots, literally crammed in with 10-12' of space on many between your steps and your neighbors back slide. Made me nervous having a small fire. If I was to return. I would only do so on a corner site which are still small but a little bigger. We camped at Cedar Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Considering what you get for the high price, the value here is pretty good. The fees include daily access the park's water park which is great, especially for smaller children. The water park has a large kids pool with a slide play area in its center. It also includes a large water slide atop a large man made hill for bigger kids and adults and and has a large lazy river which one floats on in single or double tube inflatables. The water current is continuously moving so you can either just float around the large loop or go faster if you kick and swim in the tube. There is also a large swimming pool near the Marina and pavilion area in the main campground. Most sites have full hookups. Water electric sewer and cable access. The WiFi is either OK or terrible depending on how far you camp from a node and how crowded the park is. Another cool feature was the large dog playing area where you can set your dog free from its leash and watch him run and roam and meet new friends. They also have a good bus service to Ocean MD beaches and other attractions for only a buck. The camp store is well stocked and the roads are mostly easy to navigate with some tight spots, but this is not your worry when driving, the place literally packed with golf carts everywhere. This along with the small site sizes were my only issues with the campground, otherwise, it's a great place for the family and we've been going now four years in a row. Paid extra features include a Wild West town with a gun fight. A train robbery on a small tracked train that winds through the woods, a zip line, and a pretty decent rodeo. We camped at Frontier Town RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

I've camped here several times in a motorhome and tent. The sites are mostly seasonal with water electric and cable hookups. No site dumps but they do offer to clean out your tanks for a small fee - $12.00. There is also a dump station. You can also rent a trailer, park model, and cabins. The cabins are small but they are lake front and nice. The campground, located at the base of the Appalachian trail, is clean with a picturesque lake for fishing, a clean pool with a game room, volleyball, and a pavilion for weekends bands, DJ, and even Sunday church services. The baths and showers are decent but can get a bit overwhelmed on holiday weekends. The rental hook up sites range in size from small to very large and spacious. For me, the true gem of this place are the primitive wooded sites. All densely forested and large. About half are trailer and motorhome accessible. The rest are tent or popup only. They all offer a true boondocking experience. The staff is nice and accommodating. There are also many activities available. We camped at Camp Charles in a Motorhome.

Best government campground in New Jersey. The park is owned and run by Monmouth County Parks and Recreation. The sites are huge and heavily wooded. The rustic style structures--bath house showers, laundry and pavilions--have a wilderness feel. The park makes you feel like you are in a wilderness as it's huge, over 2,000 acres. It includes a 17 acre lake with a boardwalk and marina for fishing canoeing and paddle boating (small fee). Over 15 miles of hiking trails and a well maintained archery range. There are also three cabins for rent. Each of the 64 sites has water and electric hookups but bring a long hose, the spigots can be over 50 feet away from your RV. There is a central dump station but no individual ones at the sites. Despite the lack of pads, the site setups are sweet. They all include a table, lantern stand and a large heavy steel fire pit ring with a built in grill that can be adjusted and folded upward when just burning. The sandy soil may track into your camper but it doesn't retain heavy rainfall as it absorbs it very quickly, thus the sites never stay wet for long. The sand roads can be narrow and windy in spots but they are excellently maintained and always flat with no potholes. Firewood is available and trash picked up daily. The park rangers do have police powers so the grounds are quite safe. They are always very nice and accommodating. They do enforce their no fires rule after 11pm but often times will let you extend it later. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.
