  • Cleanest and clearest swimming area in South Jersey. You would have to swim in a pool or at a Caribbean beach to get clearer water. Safety is definitely a priority there and can be appreciated. Plenty of public bathrooms and even a separate shower house. During their business hours they have food for sale, and almost anything you might have forgotten for your grill or festivity’s-being deep in the woods that’s a smart and convenient amenity. Love love love this place
  • I started going there in my teens with my parents....30 plus years ago. I love this place so many memories. We stayed every summer all summer long for many many years. The best camp ground ever! See you soon
