We were a little concerned about the campground due to the ratings but we had a good experience and we will be returning. The restrooms were old but after the weekend they were clean. The water pressure and the air dryer was not good but the water was hot and there was soap in the dispenser. The campers were friendly regardless if they were permanent or short term. We did not use the pool or the fishing facilities. The new dock is really nice. We came in on a Saturday and left the following Saturday morning the noise was normal (quiet hours were 11 to 7) and they were followed. We did have an issue with the restrooms the first weekend and we contacted the emergency number and they were cleaned immediately and they were glad that they were notified. It is a pet friendly campground.

In my top five 'worst' places I have stayed over the last ten years, this campground ranks there twice! Our first stay, we were backed into a tiny spot between two couples who were extended campers. Without the aid of a camper there, I would have gotten the truck stuck. I'm not sure the spot was a 'spot.' The second trip was again, not a defined spot; very low and wet. The entire campground needs some upkeep, paint, and attention. It appears the facility has become a home for long-term vacationers and not those traveling through. Too bad as the workers are very nice.

older facility crowded with mostly permanent dwellers. actual few open travel sites , water view sites compact and littered with cigarette butts. some just grassy unpaved or graveled sites. Biggest disappointment was fishing pier was under construction. Part of my reason for selection was to enjoy fishing. Should have posted notice to effect so I could have chosen another weekend. a bit pricey for what was available. Pizza and wings are good at the grill though.

Just to be honest, I am not sure this campground even deserves a 1 star. Very disappointed in the facility. Did not get to use the pool for either of the two full days that we were there as someone had pooped in the pool. I thought there were rules in place for small children to have on the rubber pants?? But obviously the rules are not enforced at this campground. Small children that have to sit on the edge of the seat are driving around on golf carts, barely reaching the pedals, definitely not just licensed drivers behind the wheel of these golf carts. First day the shower house had no water pressure and no hot water, the second day, I did have water pressure, but still no hot water, and the mens shower house was closed. Very loud and noisy, not relaxing at all, with kids and adults running around on bikes and golf carts at all hours of the night. Very big disappointment, if this had been my first camping experience, it would have been my last. Will never return to this campground.

This is a great spot close to Surf City. The view of the water was exceptional. Most RVs are long-term with many short term sites available. It's very quiet except for the garbage trucks coming in at 4 am.
