Site sloped down from the rear to the front so entry stairs very high. Sewer cap behind the pad at the middle of the pad. Rear tires at the end of the pad. Thirty feet from sewer compartment uphill to a 7" pipe, not a 5". Unusable. Obviously never looked at an RV or talked with anyone. Envelope at gate says drop envelope at Bld C39. No map. Our site was on a poorly marked and gravel road. Been to numerous bases and camps. This is the first I would never return to. - Navychop

Nice park. Large concrete pads with (mostly) elbow room between the sites. Nicely mowed and manicured lawn. Blazing fast Wifi. It is quiet with some shady, some sunny sites. The base's location is very close to catching train or ferry for NYC and the Jersey Shore. The Jersey Shore came as a very pleasant surprise to me as it was new, clean, active with parallel boardwalks and pavilions. Gorgeous homes across the street. A real pleasure to go see. The base is small and the NEX isn't much more than a 7-11, but it is well kept and security is tight. There are a couple of things I would warn you about. When you first drive in to the base you will see a very strange entrance. Go left and make the big loop around to the big building. Yes, you'll drive in to the building to get ID'd. They will check the ID's of everyone in the vehicle. That's the first warning. The second warning is this. You'll be instructed to turn right on T-1 and if your assigned sight is 9 through 15 to make the first right off of T-1 into the park. Do not turn on that first right unless you're only 10' long. Go about 75 feet further, turn right then 75 feet and you'll see a gravel pass through to sites 9 through 15 that is actually wide enough. That first right is only about 10' wide with curbs on both side and a fire hydrant on the corner. You'll see what I mean when you get there. The sewer hook ups are at the back/wrong side of the sites. No bid deal, just have a long sewer hose. We enjoyed the park and the area. - jomark

We stayed here for two weeks, including over Labor Day, and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Upon arrival at the gate, we were given a welcome packet with our site number and information on where the office is to check in after setting up. When you arrive, you will pull in through a large building which is the ID check. Stay in the right lane, since the left is for commercial deliveries. The sites are long and paved and very easy to back into, but the connections are not placed in the best spots. The power pedestal is located at the back of the pad, and was a stretch for the length of our cable, so check your power cable before you park. The sewer connection is the worst I've ever seen, it is located in the middle of the pad right under where our axels were. I had to crawl under the axels to connect the sewer, and had to remove part of the piping from the plug because it was sticking up four inches high. That aside, everything else was great.
It was quiet and you have enough room to not be on top of your neighbors. Although we did have an issue with one neighbor who had guests over and blocked our parking access, so I had to go ask them to move, even though they were sitting outside and watched us pull up and still did nothing until I asked. The utilities worked well, no cable TV, but over the air channels were fine and wifi is standard Navy GoWifi. The laundry room has three washers and dryers and all worked well. It was perfectly located to visit our family and be able to catch the train to NYC. There is no commissary or exchange on base, but a Super Walmart is about 10 minutes away, and I recommend visiting Delicious Orchards just up 34 for great baked goods, fruits, vegetables and deli meat. The base is small, but we still had plenty of areas to walk our dogs without worrying about traffic.
Aside from the connection locations, it is a very nice campground and we would definitely return. - pfogleboch

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. - Jan Orlando

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. - bug512

We stayed in Pine Cone because we had to be in NJ & it was the closest to our family. This place should not be able to call itself a resort. Dirt & sand roads & sites, potholes & puddles all over to get around. Trees & shrubs not trimmed to accommodate a 45' bus. Tight turns to get to site with trees in the way. Scraped the awning of the bus on one of the trees. Getting out of the site was no picnic either. I had to hold back tree branches so that my husband could make a wide turn to get out. Most people in the "resort" live there permanently with sites that look exactly like that. Site was small with a tree close to door, no room to move around. Site was not long enough or wide enough. They should not tell you that they can fit a 45' bus, if they can't. We had to stay for 18 days & we could not wait to leave. It was $350/wk. We have stayed for an entire month in other campgrounds for what we paid for 18 days here. Never again unless they do some major work there. We stayed off season so the pool was already closed for the winter. Camp store was satisfactory, nothing special. Tennis court look old & not maintained. We did not use the showers or laundry. - Denise58

Grouchy personnel, small lots, overflowing dumpsters, nickel and dime you at every step, trees encroaching RV paths, pine sap covers your RV by the time you leave. I only stay here because I have to. Cable TV sucks, Internet virtually unusable, you pay extra if you have a washer/dryer, you cannot use sewer totes for non-sewer sites, you must use their honey wagon for a fee. - VagabondLove

Park is very sandy and uneven. Do not go after a rain storm. My problem is that during the night, my electricity went off. Went to the front office and called the emergency number five times with no answer. I then knocked on a campers door who was familiar with the park and he showed me a breaker box that had possible "tripped". It worked but where was the help from the front office. Spoke to the front office the next day and it was like no big deal to them. She says she was at the gym and didn't receive any calls. Stay away from this place. - Troy650

Once you get to the park it is well located to see NYC. The drive in is an adventure but the saying "go slow-go wide" makes it doable. The park itself is just a parking lot with the max number of space jammed in. We could not get reservations for electric and water so we were in the "overflow" area and if we return would stay there again, way more room and from our space we could see the NYC sky line and the Statue of Liberty. When we where leaving our slide would not come in after much work we got it in and left 40 minutes after check out time and they charged us $40 for a "late fee", seemed extreme but those were the rules. Given the few options we would stay there again. - sjones

One of the most expensive campgrounds we've ever been to other than Fort Wilderness in Disney. It is nothing more than a parking lot with water and electric. The office doesn't have ice or any other store items, but they have a very informative packet of information. This campground does give you direct access to New York City. Via the ferry or the path train you have easy access. Because you are so close and your neighbor's slides are over the line into your area, you get to know people quickly. - DebGA

The very good about this park is location, location, location. Ferries, PATH trains, etc. all close by. Love the restaurant/bar next door (Surf City) good food and great views of NYC. The bad: It is the worst dump of an RV park I have ever stayed in and paid so much for. Sites are jammed together. No sewer and the RV dump is in the corner and you have to back into it. The electricity is unusable a great percentage of the time. Many times the voltage is under 100. Occasionally it gets to 107. If you ask about the electricity shutting off AGAIN, they say the "park is old". Such low voltage could damage your AC, etc. I have been here 3 times over the years and the electricity is the same every time. I do think the "C" row is the worst. All that said, it is the only place to stay if you want to see New York. - Jhiggins
