Overall majority of spots are for RV and in full sun and "privacy" is not exactly what they boast. If you are going to tent it, be sure you get a wooded spot--there are a few. People seem to get up in arms about seasonal folks. The last time we went the seasonal folks were just fine but we had a less than desirable group of folks that were there for some sort of party or reunion that made the place feel a little claustrophobic and trashy (not the fault of the campground) . Staff did not exactly jump out as the Disney sort but not rude--just about what you would expect your typical interaction with a Wal-Mart employee to be. There are three pools outdoors, two seem heated but the kiddie pool which Is very nice in size and depth for kids under 4 or 5 was ice cold. I found the bathrooms to be very modern and very clean, for camping standards actually pretty impressed but the water in the shower seemed to have two temps hot or cold--and hot was very, very hot. They now rent cabanas by the pool which would be nice for a larger group. At full capacity you really need to not mind crowds by the pool, there are not that many beach chairs or places to drop your stuff, or as we found to do everything at less peak times. I think every time we went to the pool there was someone testing the water or cleaning it. We did not partake in any of the kids/family activities but I must say that it looked like everyone was having a blast doing what was going on. The playground gets super hot during summer days but it is quite nice with lots of places to climb. There were quite a few golf carts around that forgot that the roads were for both cars and pedestrians as well--but this is not the first or last place we have run into that. Overall, at a hotel the kind of activities and amenities offered would be well over $300 a night and even then you cannot know which weekends the fun, family people will be there and when it will be invaded by the Jersey Shore reunion party. I wouldn't drive any great distance to come here but if this is less than an hour or two a way and you want a nice family spot for a weekend I would give it a shot. Good luck finding the place. Try to get directions to the nearest street, and have printed directions as well as GPS because the signal can fail you.
