Very nice and shady. Sites are not laid out very well. If you have an odd # site you have to ignore the one way signs or you'll have hook ups on wrong side. Some sites are very tight. All are pull through, but not typical pull through. The sites are parallel to roadway so your back is to the road and your front has a large area for fire ring and picnic table. Site was dirt/ grass but level. As others have said bring lots of hose. Rangers are super nice. Easy checkin. They sell firewood at check in. No cable. No wifi. But we got a few stations over antennae. Great kayak lake. Walmart etc less than 5 miles. Shower house needs a good scrubbing. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Freehold is a cute little town with shops and restaurants. Battle view orchard and store was fun. Picked apples at orchard. Hot apple donuts and cider at store. Monmouth battle site and museum was interesting. Washington crossing state park was nice.

Great county park with all pull through sites. We were in D-6 in our pop-up (W/E) (would be fine for up to a 30 foot travel trailer) a short walk to the restrooms, playground, laundry and showers. Bathroom and showers were in working condition and the area is air conditioned. Our site had lots of room with a nice fire ring and table. Great hiking trails and a short walk to the day use area that has areas to sit around the lake. The rangers patrol the campground and were always at the check in station. Other sites we liked were D 4,6,8,12 and C 2,4,5,7. Like others have mentioned, bring 100' of hose to reach the spigots. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful wooded state park with nicely set sites spread out. Sites are dirt but level. Water and electricity only but they have a dump station. Easy off the highway, but far enough away there is not a hint of traffic noise. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have a 36 foot class A motor home. I had no problem getting in or out. Yes, it’s tight, but still easy if you go slow. My site was MUCH bigger than most places I’ve stayed. There is a great playground for kids, clean bathrooms, nice trails, and even a free hayride this time of year. We went to Allaire haunted village which was a lot of fun. Only “warning” is that the fresh water spigots are far from the rv site. You’ll need double the hose you normally need. Other than that.... great time and great site We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

Surprisingly very nice campground. Lots to do with regards to the lake: fish, canoe, row boat, kayak and trails. The roads are tight but doable. Surprised that my 34 foot class A fit without a problem. Sites are a nice size plenty of room. There is a 30 and 20 amp hookup. No sewage on site but there is one dump site for the camp ground. There is a table and fire pit on site. Fire wood can be purchased for $10 or you can bring your own. There are three play grounds at the park, on at the camp grounds. Oh and lots of sand. Really neat place will stop by again. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, tight roads but we did OK in our 34' class A. Large site B8 though it leans a little. Lots to do, we rented kayaks and rowboat for fun, lots of trails to walk and fishing. Will definitely return. Can't do it all in a weekend! Oh yeah - Gonna need a lot of water hose I used about 90 feet. They have dump station on C loop We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are very large, but very tight. Great for tenters, not so much for larger RVs. The pull-through sites are curved and many of them are between large trees. Took 45 minutes to maneuver out of my site between the trees with only inches to spare. Also, all the sites on the left side of the road have the hookups on the wrong side so you have to run cords under the front of your trailer. Water hookups are about 50-75' away from the electrical hookups. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very wooded sites. Depending on where your hookups are located, you might need extra water and electric hoses. We were in site B 10 - very nice, clean site. We did not take advantage of the water activities or the archery range. We did take a short hike on one of the trails. We did not use the showers. The rooms were clean. We were not looking for any planned activities, just wanted to get away from the house for a weekend. This campground is only about 30 minutes from our home. We will be going back.

Great county park. Lots of trees and wonderful trails along with a small pretty lake. Rangers were very nice and drove through the campsites regularly. Sites spaced out very well. Needed an extra hose to reach the water. Site mostly level. Watch out for the tree limbs! We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a rustic campground. Two sites share a water spigot so you need 75 ft or so of water hose. It was near about full on a Saturday but pretty deserted by Sunday afternoon. It was tight for a 38 ft motorhome to get into the site. No satellite TV or over the air with an internal antenna. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Saturday night asphalt racing at Wall Stadium or New Egypt for dirt. Try the Amazing Escape Room for a new experience. It is the number 1 thing to do in Freehold according to Trip Adviser. A Super Wal-Mart is 4 miles away.

Very glad to have discovered this park. My daughter lives in Aberdeen NJ and I'm glad to have a place to park the RV while visiting her. This park has a marvelous network of trails through the pine barren woods and around the pond. There are playgrounds and beaches (although while I was there it was a little chilly to swim).

The campsites are well separated and quite large. The water hookup is shared so if you want to leave it hooked up you will probably need a second hose. There is no sewer at the campsites but a good dump station is available.

The place gets really busy on the weekends, but you get it to yourself during the week. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived after a good rain and our site was pretty soupy. We saw some with standing water. All sites are "parallel" pull-through which put our rig, particularly the awning, in danger of being snagged by trees. The site was not level. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good local spot run through county parks. Sites have good spacing and are pull through. Dump station in seperate location.

No pool, but there is fishing, playground, and other activities. We did one night stay. Great Adventure is not far away. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.

Turkey Swamp Park is a Monmouth County park in Freehold, NJ. We wanted to be able to visit New York City as well as Trenton and this location allowed us to do that. There just aren't many options for RV parks close in to NYC. The campground is heavily wooded which was welcome since it was quite hot when we were here. The driveways are sand which is nice since it does not give rise to dust. The sites are dirt. Most of the sites are the "pull along" style that sort of make a small detour from the roadway.

The sites are very long but the connections for water are located at the end of site, so two water spigots, one for each site. So you'd better have a long water hose, or two hoses. In addition, we had 30amp electric. No sewer but there is a dump station. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. We paid $40 per night. We camped at Turkey Swamp Park in a Motorhome.
