I would advise you to come to Jersey on an empty stomach since it’s known as the “diner capital” of the U.S. There are no pretentious sculptured food fairs here, just fantastic recipes (many Italian) perfected through generations of cherished family love.
New Jersey is in our country’s northeastern region, bordering New York, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.
There are many stereotypical pop culture-infused notions of New Jersey; the reality is that it offers RVers an exciting and diverse camping experience. For me, the appeal is the combination of beaches, mountains, pinelands, and an opportunity to learn about a state rich in culture and history.
N.J. can be an excellent base to explore some of New York’s tourist staples, such as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
So get ready to hit the gas as I introduce you to some of the perfect summer campgrounds in N.J.!

Big Timberlake RV & Camping Resort, Cape May
I selected this one for all the families that like to go BIG or go home on vacation. This resort meets everyone’s expectations, but for the kids, it’s the ultimate fun destination.
Located on the Jersey Shore, this campground is set amongst the wilderness. It’s also close enough to visit Cape May, known back in the 18th century as the trendy and attractive town “you just had to be seen in.”
The camping resort has a lake for swimming and fishing. There is mini-golf, kayaks, paddleboards, and a massive pool for a cooling dip. The aerial zipline and rope courses are a fun challenge and thoughtfully erected across the lake.
For your R.V., there’s a full hookup with room for slide-outs and with space enough for a vehicle of 45 feet.
You’ll be pleased to know there are vineyards in the area if you need to stock up your R.V. wine rack.
Baker’s Acres Campground, Little Egg Harbour Township
This campground has a warm history centered around family values. Established in 1968, the Bakers family endured hard times to keep this friendly campground running.
You will find Baker’s Acres situated in the elegant Jersey pinelands amongst 60 acres of mountain laurel. As soon as I pick my R.V. spot, pull up the handbrake, and breathe the fresh mountain air, I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be.
There are two swimming pools, an arcade room, and a new ballfield to practice all manner of sports. The revamped site now has water/electric and cable hookups, plush new bathhouses, and site enlargements.
I would say this is a charismatic campground worthy of calling a temporary home. Close by you can visit the affluent Long Beach Island or you can treat the kids to a day at Six Flags Amusement Park.
Pleasant Acres Farm Campground, Sussex
This unique campground is set on a working farm. You get a real glimpse of country farm living.
You can milk a cow, get involved in the pig chase, or hitch a hayride. Your little ones can even get cuddly with the baby animals. With painting and ceramics to get the creative juices flowing, you can’t help but unwind.
If you time your visit right, you might even witness an air show.
Families will get the quality time they deserve at this fun and friendly campground. With an option of back-in and pull-through sites, a pool, and a hot tub, relaxation here is bliss.
Beachcomber Camping Resort, Cape May
This camp resort boasts a 100-acre wooded park. Two refreshing spring-fed lakes allow for a summer splash.
It’s hard to resist the three adult-sized swimming pools on-site, or the numerous opportunities for boating and fishing.
There are themed activities and a store offering a decent stock of camping and fishing supplies.
The sites are a mix of all sizes to allow space for your R.V., trailer, pop-up tent, and any other add ons accompanying you.
It’s easy to see that the campgrounds in New Jersey reflect the people who live in this state. They are refreshingly honest, friendly, outgoing, and know how to have fun and show people a good time. These charming qualities will keep you coming back for more.
