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

My family and I visited this campground for a 6-night stay. It was not a pleasant experience. Adventure Bound Campgrounds are not created and run equally as we have been to one in Lancaster County, PA that was wonderful. The staff at this resort pretended to be helpful, but weren't. We had issues with the electric that took them four days to fix. We had to plug into another site and that was fine until people checked in on that site. There was a TENT CITY that was filled with more people than should be allowed on a site and they just walked through the gate, many of them without paying. They stayed up all night playing their music very loudly and were quite rude. One man decided to just urinate outside near the other campsites. We told management about this and they were going to tell them to leave, but they didn't. It was the most horrible camping experience we have ever had. The arcade was misused (vandalized) so they locked that up. There weren't the activities for children that are normally available at campgrounds. Stay away from this "resort" unless you are into the tent city scene and then invite your 100 relatives to join you. Just park outside the gate and walk in with your coolers...it's all good. - brenehuns

My family and I have been camping for over 18 years. We have been to over 10 or more different campgrounds around PA and NJ. I have two major complaints about this place. One is that the bathrooms were very dirty at all different times of the day, the floors were always wet and muddy and trash was all over the place. Second is that the manager walks around at 11:05 p.m. and tells everyone to turn OFF their radios. I have never experienced this at any other campground I have been to. I always thought that "quiet hours" were meant to be considerate and courteous towards other campers. Here, it seems that quiet hours mean time to go to bed. My wife and I were listening to music on our cell phone at a very low volume and the owner insisted that we turn it off altogether. One more thing to mention and think about before camping here is that the campground consisted of almost 80%-90% Mexican/Brazilian campers. There is a large tenting section in the back of the campground which the sites were right on top of each other. It was like "Tent City". To sum it up, the biggest negative of this campground is the manager walking around at 11:00 p.m. and telling people that it was basically time to go to bed.

This is one of the worst campgrounds that we have stayed at. The bathrooms were filthy. The sites are small. Very few full hook up sites and only a few water & electric with 30/50 amp. This campground is more for tent's or pop ups. You only could get Wi-Fi in the office or by the pool.This campground is loud and noisy. The store was fairly well stocked with almost everything you would need. That's the only good thing about this park. I definitely would not stay here again. - ty1spooky2

We make an annual visit to Shellbay Campground and are never disappointed. The bathrooms and showers ($.25/4 min) were clean and uncrowded. The pool and hot tub were clean and refreshing. This is truly a family friendly campground. My children always meet new friends at the pool. They enjoy biking around the paved roads. They also enjoy the activities offered at the campground: Bingo Night, Sunday Church Services, the Cancer Fair (raise money for research), etc. I have been coming every summer for 40+ years and it gets better each year. - dmaerz

Pool was great, has water slide that kids loved, along with spa pool and kiddie pool. Playground was ok, was nice that they have toys to play in sand with. Also has basketball and tennis courts and bocce ball area. No scheduled activities. Mostly seasonals, but everyone was friendly and quiet. Roads were narrow (should be made one way streets in my opinion). Sites were nice and shady on sand/grass but were oddly positioned. - happytrails76

Every time we come to Shellbay Campground, we expect to spend a lot of time at the beach and some time at the campground. However, we enjoyed the amenities at Shellbay so much, we spent most of our days there. The large pool is great with a kiddie pool, hot tub, slide, and plenty of space to lay out. The kids enjoy swimming and playing. They also enjoy the playground and just riding their bikes around the campground. A new addition this year is a community bike path 1/4 mile from the campground entrance. This paved path allowed us to ride our bikes 2.8 miles to the Camp May County Zoo. The staff at Shellbay are always friendly and seek to make your stay memorable and pleasant. We have been coming here for years and find the campground better each time we come. - dmaerz

Campground is nice and quiet - mostly permanent sites though. The owners threw a nice labor day picnic for everyone which included free food and live music which made for a great time! My concerns were the playground is extremely outdated. There are also many rules accompanied by passive-aggressive signs - my favorite was "limit shower time to 5-7minutes - don't make us install a meter!" It's also posted that people with full hookups aren't allowed to use the restroom (see rule 5) in my photos. The bathrooms were clean though. I'd maybe consider returning if everywhere else was booked up but other then the picnic on Saturday it wasn't very kid friendly. The hiking trail was nice and clear but full of overgrown weeds leading up to the trail and not very well marked. - magnetic157

This place is a mystery. We stayed in a 31' class C RV the end of June 2018. There was almost no one there. A few tent campers, one guy camping out of his cargo van, a few seasonals, but that's it. It's empty. No staff, no amenities, no security, no garbage pick up. Huge wooden dumpster for garbage at back (Taylor Road) entrance was full when we arrived. RV sites are a nice width with foliage in between - some sites are small even for a tent. The picnic tables are OLD, like rotten - wouldn't hold us. The narrow site roads are NOT big rig friendly. They can say it's clean and quiet because NO ONE was there. The store/registration office is not regularly staffed during business hours. The "store" is NOT modern - very dark, wooden shelves, unkempt (kind of scary...). Nothing for kids. - James DeMonquay

A very wooded campground with plenty of activities and great location if you have family/friends staying in south Ocean City, NJ. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Site was very clean with abundant shade and sufficient distance from neighboring sites. Predominantly filled with permanent trailers, the park dedicated areas for tents and full-hookup RVs. Pool is large and in great condition. Only concern would be for large trailers - no pull-through sites means you have to back in while minding trees on both sides of the site. - Lancaster Camper

We decided after staying at this campground for several years, to come for the entire season in 2016. It is very helpful to explain the size of your rig for them to place you in the best location giving you the easiest access. Roads and turns are well maintained, however certain areas can be tight for a 4o foot diesel coach. The best sites for a large rig are around site 295. The location of this park is ideal for access to all of the beaches in South Jersey while still being a short ride from the AC Expressway. We have found this park to be the best option at the Jersey shore, so much so, that we have sold our RV and have built a park model on a seasonal site. The staff has been extremely helpful. - JasonG

Whippoorwill raised the price this year, which isn't so bad for the proximity to OCNJ. The service and cleanliness are still top notch. We have been staying here for a number of years and, now that I have a larger camper, I must say that the trees and signs located on the very edges of every road make for a hazardous finale to our trek to Whippoorwill. It is stressful to tow in the park and backing in can be a challenge (to be kind) in some spots. I had to request a site change, as Site 18 is a bear to land our 28' travel trailer. Beach tag rental is a nice option, but I was none too pleased to be charged for an extra day when I turned them in at my checkout day/time. Apparently, they are due by 9am and 11am on checkout day nets you a one an additional days rent. In the end it was an extra $6, but I hate being "nickel and dimed" for something that I do not recall being told. Thankfully the ridiculous gates were out of service again, as seems to be the case on every visit. This time they removed the turnstiles. So, at least safety, was restored. Whippoorwill is a fine campground, but I think it is time to shop around for future visits. - rvparkreviews_cc

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

This a great family run campground. From the time you stop in the office to register to the time you leave you can be sure that the owners will be there for your every need or to take care of any problems you may have. From their well stocked store, great swimming pools and clean bath and showers. Weather you are one of the seasonal residents or just there for a week or two rest assure you will have good time. This was the host site for the Annual King Nummy Trail Horseshoe Tour. for 20 years. All of the campers and participants want to Say THANK YOU to all those who helped for your support of this event each year. See you all soon. From the Back Yard Boys - skiphen

Very nice campground. The sites were large and shaded, on sandy soil. There are lots of seasonal sites but we were not near them so that was nice. The bathhouses are basic, but clean and very large. The pools are wonderful. One for playing games (volleyball) and one for relaxing (has a 1ft kiddie pool at the end). Only thing is that they close the pool at 7pm. Could have been until 9pm at least. The Wi-Fi is located at the game room and is perfect for checking emails and what not. Campground is close to grocerys and Wal-Mart and other stores. Also close to Wildwood beach. However there is a tremendous amount of traffic to reach the beach, we spent a lot of time stopped at red lights! Staff was friendly, park is very secure, with gate cards necessary to enter. Our kids could ride their bikes freely until 8pm as cars do not go fast in the campground, we very much appreciated that. Overall very nice campground, good price, close to beach, wonderful pool. - Mellybelly

Where to start? When we first booked, I was a little nervous because there have not been any recent reviews. Were my concerns warnted? Half and half. We had friendly service from the moment we booked till the time we left. We did arrive way before check in and we were not charged for that. There are 2 fishing ponds but not easily accessable. They are surrounded by seasonals, tall grass and a lot of bugs due to the stagnet water. There are also 2 pools, one has a 1ft. Kiddie pool which was nice. The hours to the pool were only from 11am - 7pm - didnt make sense since office was open till 10pm. There were no kid activities which we knew when booking. There were a lot of horse flies and the bugs were bad. We were not able to eat outside at all during the week. Like previous reviews, there are a lot of seasonals. We happened to be placed in between several of them. Many will walk right though your site (under your awning) as they feel a sence of ownership due to being a seasonal. We did not use the bathhouses but I did take a quick look inside. Looked clean and primative, nothing fancy. This campground is about 15mins. from the Wildwood beach. If we come to the area again, we will not stay here again unless we are on a very tight budget. They are cheaper than most campgrounds in the area and give the 7th night free. Our site flooded when we got a good rain. site was mostly sand with a little bit of gravel. Site was also well shadded. Just too many seasonals and not being able to use the fishing ponds and limited pool hours were not working for us. - mommabair

As others have stated, there are FAR too many shanty style seasonal sites. We even saw a few pop-ups with additions and enclosed porches attached (yes, pop-ups). That being said, the store and game room were nice and clean, the pool and grounds in general were clean and well landscaped. If they did something to help clean up the folks that built second homes onto their campers they would have a very nice campground! We will be looking to stay elsewhere next year when we go to Wildwood, this campground was just too much like a trailer park for our tastes. - P.JDiesel

We stayed here the last weekend in September because we wanted to be close to the boardwalk for Monster trucks on the beach. It was wonderful. Only 6 miles to the boardwalk but there are so many planned activities here that you never have to leave. Site was easy to back in and it was our 1st time ever having to back into a site. We had zero issues and our combined length between trailer and truck is 52'. Nice concrete patio and shaded site. All hookups worked well. Park was clean and well maintained. Golf cart rentals were a plus! - SSport

Out of all the campground resorts I have visited, Beachcomber is the best. The personnel is friendly and the resort is very clean. There is constant activity for both adults and children. One of the best things to do is to relax at the lake. The view is absolutely beautiful. Beachcomber Resort is definitely one place you'll one to visit!! - velvetwind

Stayed here on (unfortunately) a rainy weekend in early Sept. Because of the weather, we didn't get to use the lake beach or pools, but they sure looked great. The cg roads were a bit tight getting to our site, and the first site we were assigned we couldn't manage to get into because of fences and lightposts, but the cg staff let us pick another that worked for us, and sent a fellow over to assist us in (we came in after dark, and appreciated the help!) The many seasonal sites were very well maintained, and some were downright beautiful, although they are spaced very close together. All of the seasonals we encountered during the weekend were very nice. Many golf carts, but only electric, and no speeders. Quiet at night after 11, and didn't encounter any "yahoos". The bathrooms and showers we used ($0.25/4mins) were clean. So we'll definitely be back, hopefully during better weather when we can enjoy more of the amenities. - Will Dennis

Courteous, competent and friendly staff; sites were level with cement pads, picnic table and fire ring. Very nice pool and hot tub as well as Dog park with large grassy area beside it. We will definitely stay here again. - JVRich

This weekend we stayed at Holly Shores Campground in Cape May, NJ. Overall the campground was very clean, pool area looked great as the pool is heated, has spa and hot tub. We stayed in site M10 which is one of the Ultra VIP sites. The concrete patio was nice, but the sites on our side of the road were tight. Hard to tell, but the sewer connection for the adjoiners are right next to the patio. When we arrived there was a new Allegro Class A and the slides came to about a foot from the edge of the concrete patio. Site was definitely long enough for our 43' 5er. No room to have a nice fire without being on top of your neighbor. I was glad we didn't go during peak season when this site would be at least $20 more per night. If you look at the campground map our site looks like it should be twice the size. There were plenty of other sites that look like they would fit our unit, but I haven't compared it to their rate sheet which has sites listed for various unit sizes. I should also note that our site was on the main road in and out of the campground so it was very busy. They do not accept the Good Sam's discount even though the GS site lists them as a participant. There is a nice dog park in the back of the park. Plenty of doggie stations with bags and trash cans throughout the resort. We wouldn't rule out staying here again, but would rather get a site that is a wider and off the main road. - ETyson

We were invited to visit friends' cabin . They made arrangements with office & paid $18 for us. Rude front gate girl. She told us to go to office & bring drivers lic where we had to pay another $18 (total cost $36 just to visit). Roads were poorly marked. Cabins were squeezed so close to each other - Fire pit was right next to the next cabin. Our friends were so disapppointed with the setup & cabin was dirty when they got there. Their cost for a week was well over $700. Don't waste your money here. Best advice is to go to Beach Combers 1/2 mile down the road which is less expensive and much nicer. - Firelup_12

Campsite was extremely large for a state park. Its was even pull through. Near the showers, but I did not need them. Sites are spaced apart nicely. Office staff was helpful. Bike trails are great too. Easy access for RVs, escpically our Class A. The only complaint was on the site, the fire pit was inbetween the rv and picnic table, but we could have parked another way. We were under fire ban anyway. A few bugs, but a great one night stay. - Chieftain1986

This is a great state park very clean. Quiet and out in the middle of no were for Jersey. They do have a dumping station other then that not much. There is a lot of hiking, a lake, biking, and a lot of other outdoor things it is about 20 min. to Sea Island and about 30 min from Cape May and Atlantic City. Great place to see for 2 to 3 Day. No Longer. - 4dvcfans
