32 RV Parks near Fortescue, New Jersey
Jul 2016 - $65.00
This campground is located just South of Millville, NJ. Sitting right on the Delaware Bay, the views are absolutely amazing! Sunsets are spectacular! This park is basic. Water, electric, that's it. Way overpriced for what it is. There is NOTHING down this way. We have friends who live in Fortescue, so that makes it fun for us. If you are into saltwater fishing, it's your paradise, with charters running daily. Higbees Marina and Charlesworth House are both nice places to eat. If staying here, beware of greenheads! Just look them up! They are plentiful. Sites are stone, back-in, and VERY TIGHT. We may or may not stay again. We were able to pull into our site so we could face the bay. No picnic tables, fire rings. Pay showers. WiFi, but no info given for pass code. Bathrooms required pass code. Had to call, no staff on site. Overall, decent, only one in area, but there are better. If you are over 32 feet, don't even try it! - Chieftain1986

Basically, don't camp here unless you are racing or with some one who is racing. There are no cabins. There is nothing for kids to do other than watch racing. The camp sites really have the bare minimums, which is basically only electric. Not a bad area, though. - Jersey Devil

I stayed here to watch round 2 of the U.S. Rallycross National Championship. The first time in August, I stayed at the local state park (Parvins State Park) and found the showers/bathroom area absolutely disgusting. I decided to try staying directly at the racetrack. Pros: This was the first time staying at a racetrack where I would be watching races at all day and the convenience was awesome. The showers were pretty clean (you have to drive to the Thunderbolt track, they are in the same building as the Drivers Impression store). I was in the VIP lot at well...It was level. The place has security at the front gate, but going in and out was never a problem, even until late at night (11 PM, but I was told there was someone there 24 hours a day and I can come and go as I please). Cons: New facility and they are not really ready for campers. The VIP field (right near the Brighton Room restaurant) was a sandy/dirt field. No matter what, so much sand was tracked into the camper it was unreal. However, the worst part about this place was the flies. I don't know if this rests on an old landfill or what, but the flies were everywhere. At the track they were everywhere. You'd get in and out of your truck and there'd be a dozen flies inside the truck by the time you shut the door. The flies, from going in and out of the camper to bring the food on the grill in, there had to be 20. My wife visited for the day and she couldn't believe it! I wouldn't have gone and reviewed this place if these flies didn't absolutely turn me completely off to this place. Bug spray wouldn't do anything, they were just like houseflies. There was a steady breeze, but they were still everywhere. Just be warned...In talking to vendors and people that work at the track, it's a problem that NJMP could care less about. Since this place is new, they didn't give any maps of the complex telling me where the showers were or anything. I had to get a security guy to tell me where my VIP lot was (even though it was the worst lot out of the whole place). Once they get their act together, this place should be a world class facility! However, the $50 fee to camp there all weekend really did make it super convenient. Just be warned about the flies. - Craig R

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

This is a small but well kept campground with 10 campsites. We had full hookup with 50 amp service. There is no wifi available. The bathhouse was brand new with two stalls and one shower. The laundry room had one washer one dryer. We drove to the other side of Base to the rec office to have our frequent camper book stamped. The clerk couldn't have been nicer. Wish they were closer to the campground. You fill out the registration form and put your payment in a drop box. The campground is next to the AMC Museum. It is a must see!! But you cannot get in from on base. You must drive off base to enter the museum. - Melodycthomas

This is a small military campground located on Dover AFB. There ar 10 back in sites, 3 with 30 amp and 7 with 50 amp electric. At least half of the sites were filled with long term campers (homesteaders). One cannot make a reservation and we were lucky to get the last site available. One can self pay or go to the Outdoor Recreation and pay (we went to Outdoor Recreation) which is easy to find on base. A long term camper had recently departed our site and our water/power pedestal was completely covered in weeds. the mowing crew came by the next day and trimmed it all away taking care not to blow anything on our equipment. The bathhouse is new and there is no signage on either bathroom as to women or men's. Fortunately, the main door for each bathroom locked so when using the facilities, we just locked the door. Looks like the bathhouse has not even been added to the cleaning contract and though not filthy, the toilets needed a good scrubbing. There was no soap, toilet paper, or paper towel available in the bathhouse so we purchased some to use during our 3 night stay. No trash can either. The campground is located at the end of the runway but aircraft noise was not an issue for us. We were camping with a motorcycle and a motorcycle pop up tent trailer so the bathhouse and picnic table were important to us. Not sure where the dry camping is located as nothing is marked for those sites. A dump station is available and a $3 fee if not camping. We would stop here again. - roadking

On the plus side, there were a number of nice hiking trails (if at times poorly marked and a bit confusing), certain of the campsites offer spaciousness and privacy, regular patrols by New Jersey State Park police offered the appearance of security, and the park is welcoming to pets. These attributes were outweighed, however, by some distinctively negative features. The campground (and swimming area) restroom and shower facilities were very outdated (no soap, inoperative faucets and toilets, mirrors that were unusable due to the accumulation of rust at levels that made visibility near-zero) and invariably filthy (clogged toilets, used toilet paper and urine on the floors, feces-laden toilet seats, trash in abundance). The permissible swimming area is rather tiny and shallow, with swimming being limited largely to small children. And planned activities for campers (such as ranger naturalist talks) are few or nonexistent. With its current budgetary woes, the State of New Jersey appears to have found some convenient targets for financial cuts, and this campground appears to represent one of them. - TentingTimesTwo

This is a state park located in South Jersey. Living not too far from here, I decided to take a short, one night trip. When trying to reserve online through the Reserve America site, I was told there was a two night minimum. However I did call, and the office personal informed me to just come over on the day I would like to check in. Doing so, you will pay a walk- in fee. So $25.00 a night, still, not bad at all. After getting all the info, you will have to drive to the other side of the park to get your site. I had site 27, and informed them I have a 22 foot RV. I just about made it down the road to this particular site, but, being full that night, its was pretty much all that was available. Though, my RV did some tree and shrub trimming. The site was fairly large in width, it wasn't very deep. With the tight road, back in was a struggle, and, the site was very un-level. But, I had plenty of room to put the awning out. Very quite, and away from other sites. I just wish I did have another site;however, as I saw ones open that would be better access for me. I will however camp here again. State park- no hookups! - Chieftain1986

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

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

We stayed 2 nights - clean restrooms/showers and hookups worked well. The wifi is weak, especially in the evening. The majority of people here seem to stay for the entire season. It was interesting to see the variety of Airstreams while walking around, but they are very close and we could not open our windows due to our neighbors sitting outside smoking and listening to football games on an outdoor tv. The location is convenient to touring the area. - thesnus

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

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
