I had to move the motorhome out of the driveway for three days while it was being sealed coated so that it could dry so the wife says let’s go down the shore OK. The only reservation I could get was sea Pines. I’ve been here before and knew what I was getting into. We got what seem to be the last sewer site on a Tuesday afternoon. It was a very tight spot between two permanent residence (see the pictures). My sewer hook up was on the wrong side of the RV but I prepare for things like this and had an extra long sewer hose that reached. We were parked within 5 feet of a fire pit but thankfully the neighbor did not use it. She also kept her garbage on the porch of her semi permanent rental unit. I thought this was supposed to be a campground or an RV resort but I’m afraid this is more of a cheap place for somebody to live. The roads are all sand and crushed down and when they are dry they are dusty and dust goes everywhere! When it rains the giant potholes filled with water and turn into mud pits. I have returned home but I have never felt so dirty before. The pool is very cloudy and I didn’t go in anyway because there is too many Rugrats that we’re just taking over there is no adult swim here. Water pressure is so low I had to use the water in the tanks to take a shower. This is a great location if you want to go to the Jersey shore but be prepared to feel dirty and smelly and lots of Ants and biting flies. While walking my dog this morning I observed daddy long legs protecting his territory against the other two daddy long legs they were fighting. Nature at its finest. I had to trim the branches that were hitting the top of the motorhome with the the pole pruner that I always carry for such a job. Many trees need trimming in this place. I think I’ve said enough please observe my pictures of the left and the right side of my campsite and noticed what I had to look at for my three day stay. Then notice how my car looked when I hooked it up to the tow dolly filthy. - Ski Bum

Trees and stumps trees and stumps and more trees and stumps. This place is NOT big rig friendly as a matter a fact it's dangerous! A place cleared for bigger rigs would be nice. Trim out trees would make it neat. In my opinion it's messy and dirty. Dust everywhere. Sites very narrow (again due to trees and stumps) no satellite. Staff was great. Pool nice. These are the only things I can say are nice. Everything else ruff. This place has potential but we will probably avoid this campground in the future. - PWMC58

Let''s start with the positive; we were here when the temperatures were in the 90's and the wooded sites protected us and gave us plenty of shade. The lake with the beach was a nice change from the pool, and was close by to our site. The gentleman that checked us in was wonderful and patient considering this was a holiday week. Kudo's to him!!! The rest of the staff was friendly enough, but it was an effort. Quiet hours are respected and followed. Downside: They take reservations but you have to find your own site, which I've experienced with other Thousand Trail campgrounds and feel that it is an incovenience to members of Thousand Trails. We have a 40' motorhome with a toad and had to unhook the toad so we could navigate the roads within the campground. Unless they have space near the front of the campground and/or you have kind neighbors(which we did)who help you navigate into your site, It is a tough campground for big rigs. The seasonals had the best sites that seemed to be large enough for two campsites, otherwise you are close to your neighbor. - leen

Thousand Trails/Encore Membership campground, $20 was add on rate, not full price rate. Enjoyed our stay there, seasonals around us were very nice people. - GerryBier54

I honestly worried coming into this park after reading online reviews. I stayed here with the Trails Collection program of my Thousand Trails stay, so it was only $20/night. We are in a 43' rig and I worried after hearing about how crazy tight the roads back into the campground were. Due to our size, we were put into the spots up front. They are grassy and in full sun. The one we got had a nice size yard between me and the next camper. The negatives to our spot: the water + electric hookups were on the wrong side of the camper and at the very rear. With an electric power inlet at the middle of my camper, I wouldn't have been able to plug in without an extension. The other negative is the sewer connection at the site: it's angled at like 45-degrees and wasn't threaded. Being able to hook into it meant I needed a weird stack of leveler blocks and rocks to hold it all together. The good, however- the pool area was absolutely stunning. We live in our rig and have traveled for years and this was literally one of the nicest pools we've seen. It's a great layout with the shallow 1' area up to the 5' area and then even over on that side is a ledge that's submerged. Our interactions with the staff - from the groundskeeper to the front office were all professional and pleasant. - LearnToRV

There are only 9 RV sites available at this time. The remaining sites are all permanent single-wides. All sites are tree shaded. No way to get satellite TV. Cable TV is very good with plenty of channels. Sites can be very rough, parking on dirt. Park amenities are quite a distance from the sites, as is the trash dumpsters and laundry. Must pay completely in advance when making reservations. PA discount available, but restricted. Check it out. This is a Morgan RV Resorts property. Good location, 8 miles from Ocean City and 25 miles from Atlantic City. Owners/manager(s) not on site when we arrived. Two young men helped us park, and we needed the help. Roads are very narrow. Drop towed before parking. - kipmeister

Absolutely the worst place I ever stayed. 95% of the campground is seasonal with park model homes a campers set-up permanently . The campsites are at the back of the campground near the swamp. Site D10 where I was at was surrounded with 1960 vintage campers on blocks, paint peeling, and green mold. There was a rat the size of a small cat under the camper next to me. This is the first campground I ever stayed at without anti-siphon safety valves on the water. Then I get home to find I was charged a HIDDEN "Resort Fee" of $4/day but they had no "resort" amenities. It appears that the owners have absolutely no concerns about the quality of the campground in the back sections - the front where the permanent homes are had very nice upkeep. Don't stay here unless you absolutely need to. - CharlieVT

This is a great campground, located very strategically for visiting the best shore points. The staff are very efficient and professional, the facilities are clean and very well kept, the sites are pretty spacious. Our site had 4 small pieces of litter but we had arrived early so I expect they would have been cleaned up otherwise.
Seasonal campers definitely dominate the population, and Canadian campers make up a large portion of the transient population; everyone we met was friendly.
The pools are co-located and had a life guard for both. There were many families and the kids all behaved appropriately with plenty of room for our kids to play.
The roads were a bit narrow, but that meant there is plenty of tree cover.
The green head flies from the nearby marsh could be a real pain, but only affected us one day. Apparently this depends on the wind direction.
The marshlands that surround both of the camp locations have greater bird watching opportunities.
We checked out another local mega-campground; it had more amenities but it was too big for us to be sure we knew where are kids would be. It had a lot of golf carts for permanent sites which is a turn off as well. We saw no carts at Nummy.
The bathrooms at King Nummy were exceptionally clean. They charge 25 cents for a 5 minute shower which was plenty of time for me. A quick rinse shower is in the bath house but you have to hold the handle.
We will go to King Nummy again. - ArEfBee

This is a great park. Full hookups, clean and not overcrowded ! The location is perfect... you're less than 20 minutes from Cape May, Wildwood Stone Harbor. The park itself is very family oriented with lots of friendly people. The location might lend to biting bugs at times given conditions but this came and went. I really appreciated the clean bathrooms / I don't mind feeding quarters into a shower meter if the bathrooms are clean! - Jim and Ben

Been to this location at least 6 times over the past few years. Never had any major or minor issues till my last night on 10/12/17. I am sitting no less than 8 feet from the fire pit with all the wood contained inside the fire ring. I am a Eagle Scout and know how to watch a fire. A guy out of know where in the dark comes up to me asking me to make sure I watch out for the fire. ( I was sitting watching the fire as stated above). Told the guy I know how to watch a fire. In a Bragging tone he says he is the owner of the campground and starts to walk away. I guess my issue is-. What was the reason to come up to me? If I was not sitting in front of the fire, yes. Say something. But no reason to be bothered and Interrupt my evening that I paid for at the campground. I rented a 1 room cabin for 3 nights. The beds are very uncomfortable, a little better than sleeping on a rock and the air conditioning in the cabin did not work. I doubt I will return. Reported what happened the next morning to the manager (?) with a response of little care. - Mightyfur

The entrance to the park is very nice and clean; excellent impression. The staff was so/so. One was nice and pleasant, the next not so much. I called prior to arrival to see if we could check in early. I told the girl I would pay for the night but couldn't get there til the morning. She said the site was empty (2 weeks prior to checking in), but she would note my file and if it was empty the night before they would accommodate. I called the day before and the site was still open. Keep in mind I told them I would pay for the extra night, but couldn't get there until the next morning. I was told NO because someone may come in during the evening for a site. Really? I was willing to pay the $62 for an extra night, but they wanted to see if someone would come in off the street for a spot? I guess they thought maybe they could have gotten $100 for a last minute overnight rental. Either way their greed got the best of them and they lost the $62 I was willing to pay for early check in. Attached to the store is an adult lounge where the Wi-Fi is available. Next to that is a game room; air conditioned with a nice assortment of games. All three of these facilities are immaculate. The pool area is somewhat small for the size of this campground. Chairs that weren't broken were hard to find. On the weekend, both pools were packed to the point where you are just getting kicked in the back and jumped on. That was ok because we were here for the beach and used the pool very little. The showers, bathrooms and laundry across from the pool were also immaculate. Now on to the bad part which is the cause of the low rating. We were assigned to a spot in the "P" section behind the pool. Our site was so unlevel that one side of our camper was raised 4" off the ground! The site was made up of stones and what appeared to be concrete debris. This broken up stone destroyed our patio mat as when you walked on the mat the sharp pieces of concrete went right through it! It was also very hard on your ankles to walk across this site because the size of this debris varied (some pieces the size of tennis balls), and we all found our ankles to be rolling on the rocks. The water and cable hookup for the site next to ours was right in the middle of our own site! Not in the back; not in the front, but right smack in the middle of our site. Not very comfortable or convenient. We were thankful to have a very nice couple next to us at first. It seemed like minutes after they left in comes the next camper. This person had his son helping him and I'm not sure either one of them knew what they were doing because, yes, they pulled the lever for their BLACK TANKS! Gallons and gallons of crap came flying out. They were from out of the country, and apparently had a long trip. I was sitting not 3 feet away from this, on my postage stamp. Truly the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. While this is not the fault of the campground, they should have staff overseeing the transition of their campers. Needless to say that ended our trip of being able to sit out and eat dinner. They claim the site we were given, they put 40' rigs on. There is no way a rig of that size can fit onto these sites properly. I understand it's all about the money, but when you are being charged a premium to be packed in like a sardine, it's not worth it, especially if you can't open your slide or awning, or both. It also was a safety issue as we kept tripping over the water and cable lines for the next site that were placed in the middle of our site. Additionally, we believe this site must have been dug up repeatedly because of the high middle ground. Another issue with the site was the flies. Never have I seen flies so bad! Was this site a septic site? Behind our camper towards the brush had a horrible smell of urine. Possibly, or were people using the brush as a toilet. We did see campers down the row from us dumping garbage into the brush behind their camper. Once again, I believe that is the campground's fault. They have lots of staff sweeping and starting leaf blowers at 8:00 am, but no one to assist or make sure things are ok. The office just looks at you and says: "Sorry." The sites in the back of the park are wooded with a bit more breathing room, but appeared to be quite difficult to get into as some are between trees, sites, and at odd angles with very narrow one way roads. If our site wasn't so miserable, it would have been a good stay. - campincrew

My wife & I camped here to be near a butterfly exhibit. I'm also trying all of the CG's I can in NJ as we live in NJ and we are looking for a perm home CG. We had one of new sites behind the pool which was close to the pool which was nice. The negatives were broken stone for pad for trailer to set on; preventing me from going barefoot. Site were very close together and the maintenance people started early on Sat and Sun preventing late sleep in. A previous review said they were able to get Wi-Fi at these sites we weren't. - GlennNJ

A large park that is part of the Sun RV network. The park is very large with most of the sites occupied by park models. They have a few RV sites up front for the transient, or short stay, visitors. The park has great amenities with all of the standards, plus tennis, basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, and horseshoe courts along with two large pools. We were in a pull through site that was plenty long enough for a large rig and toad. The parking area of the sites are asphalt with a gravel area between sites that includes a fire pit and picnic table. The park has a gated security and working wifi.

Nice large campground now owned by Sun RV Resorts. Most of park is permanent mobile home sites. We were in a pull through site near the entrance. Good water pressure. Cable tv and Tengo wifi. The entrance is 13' 1" but there is an open entrance & exit to one side (right as you enter). The trees can be pruned a bit better to accommodate taller rigs especially when passing another vehicle and the site I was in. Overall, it's a nice park. - endlessreach

We stayed here only for a weekend, very clean park. The park is majority seasonal campers/residents. We were only able to get a water/electric hook up due to it being summer. We would stay here again if in that area. - EastPAcamper

Its is a seasonal park. Rates are $6500 to $7500+++.
Management is very unprofessional and ignorant. Power, internet WiFi, water, cable all are problems here.
There are better, more affordable, non-corporation owned campgrounds around. Do some research. There is a reason so many campers are for sale here. Fees go up a minimum of $200.00 every year. State police in here very often. Lots of items get stolen from your site.
Not the best around. - bbqman1968

This campground is crowded and geared towards seasonals. The transient sites that are available are far and few between. Good luck trying to find out where your site ends and the other begins. This campground is owed and operated by a corporation and I guess they haven't been in the bathrooms or have had to take a shower in them lately. They do clean the bathroom/shower area but some of them are so old it just doesn't help. We were lucky I'm told in my area as far as the bathrooms go. But my friends had to had to enjoy the septic system being pumped out in that area while they had their breakfast. The pond is green with a nice beach and big slide, my six year old enjoyed playing in the area with the outdoor equipment. But we used the pool instead. They have their own restaurant on the grounds as well as a store. There were some activities available. I did find the speed limit a little fast for a campground but it is a big place. It wouldn't be my first choice but depending on what you want to spend there are other campgrounds in the area more expensive. It's a short ride to some great beaches in the area. - Hargus

We really like this place - it's our favorite at the Jersey shore. Clean, newer facilities, with a very nice pool. Much smaller park than Driftwood, which is across the street so it's quieter. Sites in the new section are easier to level. It's predominantly a seasonal park but they are newer and very well maintained. About 10 min drive to Sea Isle City and 15 min to Avalon. - JPMac

The Passport discount for 2 of the 3 nights allowed. I wouldn't think this park is good value at $55 a night. They don't have a clue on what sites can fit a 41' 5th wheel. We were given 183; I made it in but reeeal tight. Now considering there were over 100 sites open for all 3 nights they certainly could've given me a better fit to get in. I shouldn't have told them I have PA when I booked, I should've got a good site first then told them I'm PA. The hookups are at the back of sites; my cable wasn't long enough. Water was good. Roads a little tight for big rigs. 15 minutes from Cape May. - North America in 90 days

I would suggest that the two poor reviews here might reflect more on the reviewers and not the location. I called for a same day reservation and was told I could have my choice upon arrival. Being early in the season, we pretty much had the choice of any of the W/E sites. Yes, there are permanent model homes here but for the most part, the overnight spots are separate from them and closer to the main office, bath house, pool, etc. Very nice spot in a good location. As for the shower charge, if I was paying full price and not Passport America, I'd be a tad miffed but since no NJ state parks offer hookups, I can overlook that. Also, I found the staff to be quite nice and polite. One of the ladies even found us one of their old stickers for our trailer! - MSSW

This was our first time camping with our TT. We stayed close to home in order to learn how to use it. The staff was very helpful and helped us pick a site that was easy to navigate. Camped in early spring. Great park, very well stocked store. Nice and peaceful. Great 1st experience. Convenient to the beaches, restaurants and grocery stores. - Live Life - Keep It Simple

Huge place! Campsite was long, but not wide. We were between seasonals with solid structures and large decks. It was pretty claustrophobic. Most of the place is seasonals who have been here years and know each other. Everyone was friendly enough but it had a mobile home park feel of the place. The road to the site is very narrow and winding. Very difficult to maneuver in a motorhome. The "lake" consists of an area that was dug out and filled with water. They did have a lot of sand for the kids to enjoy. Large camp store and lots of activities for the kids. Will go somewhere else next time. - Kevie

The overall appearance of the park was very clean, cannot comment on restrooms or laundry as we did not use any facilities. We camped here knowing we would spend a great deal of our time at the shore towns so we brought our jetskis along with us. We did not engage in any of the planned activities or use the pools or lakes. There was ample parking in the overflow lot for our trailer and second vehicle. My only complaint about the place is the lack of a designated area to hose down boats/jetskis like many of the other campgrounds we visited this year. When asking the woman at the front gate where I could flush skis she told me to do it at my site. While parking my skis in the overflow lot I was approached by one of the staff members asking if I was the guy flushing my ski, he continued that he had someone complaining about flushing ski (my guess is one of the snobby nearby seasonals) at my site. I explained to him that I was instructed to flush skis at my site from a staff member at front gate due to the lack of designated area, he quickly replied that flushing or cleaning anything is strictly prohibited. Needless to say, if we plan on bringing our boat or jetskis on our next trip to the area we will not visit this campground again.. - Wjh1175

Wonderful campground, excellent location. Located midway between Cape May (lovely, lovely) and Atlantic City (not so lovely), this campground has lots of shade, good management, and many summertime activities (swimming pool, game room, snack bar, bingo, etc.) for everyone. Sites are spacious with sand added to level the forest floor, so pads are needed under jacks. Many of the sites are leased for the season and all properties were well maintained. In the summer time there is also a farm stand nearby so you don't have to leave the campground. Trees lining the exit lane at the barrier arm from the campground need to be trimmed back; but, other than that, we had no complaints and will definitely stay there on our return trip. - Mom_of_Two
