This is a very pretty park with a lot of trees. We had a very generous site. Cape May is a very nice town with a lot to do. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Cabin.

The park was nice for our week stay. The entrance could use more room for guests checking in while those guests already checked in are trying to get back into the park. Could also use more room for unhooking and hooking up your towed vehicle. The pool was nice and there is a 2 1/2 mile bike trail to Cold Springs Village right across the street. The site was gravel with a concrete pad for your chairs and picnic table. Cable hook up was also available at the breaker box. We would use this park again. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is nice but their sites are too close. We just came back from this campground today. I will never stay here again. Not enough room per site to handle a pop up camper and an easy up canopy. Don't stay here unless you like being squashed. If you have more then 4 people in your party don't stay here. At this campground you have to pay for showers .25 for like 3 mins, the showers were very cold. Staff was very slow. Must have camp fires out by 11:30 at night, don't know about you but in the summer we would just be getting back from the boardwalk and ready to make s'mores over the fire.

We stayed in a 31' Class C motorhome over Columbus Day weekend. The sites are VERY narrow and you are VERY close to neighbors. The resort advertised a hayride and other Halloween events. It became an excuse for chaos and madness all weekend, including some nut running around with a chainsaw to scare the "hayride." Roaming bands of unsupervised (loud) kids on skateboards and bikes. They do not enforce campground quiet hours. No management. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

It is a tight space but was fine. I was able to get my 39' motorhome in the lot OK but to get to the lot it was very tight. The guy there was very helpful. Was there on Harley weekend which I didn't know but was very quiet still. Lots of tall trees and the acorns were starting to fall. Wish they included WiFi, which was the only down side.

The service of the workers is excellent, but management is rude and disrespectful to camping guests. They claim to be dog friendly, but that is only if you have a dog that doesn't bark or like to play with other dogs. The owners are very unfriendly and do not act professional. I was a repeat customer who will not be returning. The campsites are very tiny and there is no privacy between campers. While it is convenient, its not worth the money and lack of professionalism.

This is a beautiful, heavily treed campground with room for big rigs. Daily rates was $47/day and $77/day during the 3 day Memorial holiday. There is a large staff that is working all day long keeping the park beautiful. There are many seasonal rigs set up - many with additional beautiful landscaping. It is obvious the seasonals add value to this park. There are also rental cabins which are very nice. During the week the wifi was nice but not on the weekends. Beautiful two pools plus spa and all day and evening weekend activities for the kids. We were told kids activities are every day during the summer. We stayed through Memorial Day and the kids were respectful and not too noisy at any time. Close to shopping and restaurants.We just wish we could have stayed at this park longer and will definitely be back. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

After staying at another camground in Cape May for the past few years, we decided to give Holly Shores a try over Labor Day weekend. Although there were a large number of seasonals, they were well-maintained and toward the back and sides of the property. The main thoroughfair was reserved for transients. All transient sites were well graveled and level, and most had a cement pad for setup. There was 6-10 feet of grass between sites, so we did not feel cramped at all. The sites were clean, and in fact we saw staff members sweeping the cement pads every time someone checked out. The pool was clean and heated, the bathrooms were modern and cleaned often, the camground constantly had activities going on, and the staff was very friendly. Overall we were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Decided to do a last minute trip since we had an open weekend. Very nice camp ground, mostly seasonal but a nice mix. We stayed in site M4 right along the main road. Due to configuration of our sites sewer connection and location of sewer hookup on our RV we came up short using our standard 20ft of hose. Just keep in mind if your trailer has a more forward sewer connection like ours does. The store had lots of things to choose from; however, they did not have any shirts over XL, would have bought one had they had larger sizes. Loved the wagon ride around the campground, driver did an amazing job of maneuvering around the tighter sections of the park. Lots of activities offered throughout our stay. We would definitely consider coming back to Holly Shores. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Holly shores is no doubt a nice campground - clean, well kept, lots of trees, quiet at night, friendly staff. You could argue, that during peak season a back-in site with partial hook-ups is worth 70 bucks. You could also argue, that at this rate, showers (where the shower heads don't come out of the ceiling and where you can adjust the temperature) should be included as well as Wi-Fi and a washer load should cost maybe 2.5 instead of 3.5(!). Also, the Wi-Fi signal is weak in some areas of the park, so use the one hour free access to make sure it works on your site before wasting money. This place has written 'greed' all over it and I won't return. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Truck Camper.

Park is nicely maintained. Roads and sites are gravel. Our site did require some leveling. Many, many trees but well trimmed to not be an issue. However, the roads and sites can be a little tight to maneuver. Sites have decent spacing. Park is mainly seasonals, but there is an area dedicated to transients. Wi-Fi is not free and was an issue during our stay. Park is close to Wildwoods and the boardwalk as well as other area attractions. Nice park, good value. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice Park. Very friendly staff. Requires a digital cable box, which they will supplied for a $10 deposit. We had Digital TV's, so we didn't need the box. Their cable system shut us down for a few hours when it detected no box - but it came back on. The showers were very clean, but they are Pay Showers. The sites are small and clean with cement pads and gravel, but still, very small. We would have no problem returning here. We camped at Holly Shores Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
