Okay, first of all the location is old. Very very very old. It is really really really in a beautiful location. Just amazing. Problem is if you need power ...literally at all, this is not the park for you. This is the worst power you will EVER find at any camp site. WARNING: Were barely getting 25 amps out of a 50 amp circuit. The power spikes are severe. Killed the washer and dryer. Freaked out all electronics. This is in a very beautiful area. You may have to run your generator the entire time here. Power is nearly none functional. Scenic and amazing place to camp, but the power will damage your systems. Sad! - ErikJ

One of the better options when visiting NYC, but I don't plan on returning. The electricity to the campground was intermittent, which posted a big problem on hot days. Most sites are on the small size for a big rig. The campsite is in need of renovation and investment. The county Park as a whole is huge and attracts hundreds and hundreds of people on the weekends. The train station is nearby, but probably too far to walk for most folks. The dumpster area is pretty rough. If the fix the electrical problems, I might give them a look again, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. - Undivided Nation

Been here several times, each time is worse. I don't plan on returning. County workers everywhere riding around on golf carts, but not doing much. Let's start with the bathrooms: heavy mold on the shower curtains, dead bugs everywhere (because the door doesn't close tight and the lights are on all night). Hair, mud, cigarette butts, empty shampoo bottles litter the restrooms. Windows are covered in cobwebs and dead bugs. I've been here a week so far and have only seen the restrooms cleaned once (they need to be cleaned 2x a day). Hoards of city kids bussed in for summer camp walk up from the tent sites and use the same 3 showers / 3 toilets on weekends. 2nd issue: Dumpster stinks and is overflowing most of the time, stray cats everywhere around dumpster. Big sign says "Don't Feed Cats". 3rd issue: Lot's of permanent trailers have been here for years, lots of work trucks, big propane tanks, messy sites. 4th issue: There is a field and hall adjacent to the campground used for family outings/company picnics. Last weekend a large group was there with loud music all day long, and they were playing softball in the field and several balls ended up under my RV and car; I was worried about my rig getting hit. No respect to the campers and kids were running through occupied sites to get water for squirt guns. I didn't drink the tap water because I think it's well water and the campground is adjacent to a huge closed landfill.??? 5th issue: Lots of low branches, the place needs a lot of tree work. All the campers around me have branches scraping their roofs. The Good: Proximity to NYC via train, full hookups, but only 30 amp. Grocery store within a mile. Nice area. - eventanman

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

If you are wondering why you cannot find any reviews on this "worst campground" in the USA, read on. This was our first time in the New Jersey area. Since we live out of state, we searched for hours online to find an rv park within reasonable proximity to the New York City area. We did a Google search and found Sun Air Campground. We phoned the owner to ask if he could accommodate a large motorhome, if it was easy to get to New York City by mass transit and what amenities they had. I was led to believe that everything was fine; no sewer, but good electric and water hookups, a dump station and fishing just steps away with a nice view of the lake. We believed we would be staying in a nice country setting with good access and modern amenities. So here is what we saw upon arriving in town. Without a GPS we never would have found this place. No directions were given on the website. When we turned onto Cozy Lake Rd, it was a very narrow road in a residential neighborhood with low overhanging trees. There were no signs along the road to provide direction until we finally came upon a small weathered sign nailed to a tree by a driveway. This was our first clue. The driveway entrance was rutted and rocky with pot holes, heavily wooded and very narrow. We pulled into a turn around area and straight ahead was a rundown modular residence with a little sign "Office" above the door. I knocked on the door (9:15 am) - no answer. My wife and I walked down the road into the campground only to be met by a vicious barking boxer, luckily on a chain in front of what looked to be a permanent trailer residence. The available sites were uneven, difficult to get into and covered in leaves and tree limbs. All occupied spots looked like permanent residents. We immediately decided this campground would not even rate a negative one star rating. There is a reason why there are no photos of the campground on the website. Cut-out areas in a heavily wooded area does not make a decent rv campground. We knew we were taking a chance on this place with so little information online, but we thought we'd check it out. Couldn't see any satellite images on Google maps because the area is so overgrown and the buildings are trashy and in horrible shape. In our 20+ years of motorhome travels, this is truly the worst place we have ever seen. Needless to say we drove on down the road. - cal corvette

Family owned, people are nice. Gravel roads that are not maintained, gravel sites, ours was not level even with the use of leveling blocks. We parked by the lake, which was full of algae. There had been a boat dock at one time, now the area is roped off with "do not enter" signs. There is only one bath house for showers that is in very poor condition. You have to pay to use the shower. There is another bathroom that is in even worse condition. Neither were clean. There is a dump station, but no sewer hook up. The majority of the sites are seasonal renters in run down trailers. This place only takes cash. - esta34950
