  • Stayed here a few times, new Co - ed bath pavilion really nice. Heated floors a bit too warm. Caterpillars a bit of a nuisance but tolerable.
  • Loads of options for the day between the beach, a large playground, and the basketball court. Facilities were clean and the whole atmosphere was family friendly. Hiking trails were fun as well. Just wished the spent the couple of dollars to put nets on all the basketball hoops.
  • I normally don't write reviews but I felt I had to with the experience I just had. I've been coming to wildwood with my family for 15 years now. It's something my parents really enjoy, especially as a family. We understand the policies and regulations, in particular with one which is the car policy. You're allowed one vehicle to stay on campsite and the second you must pay $10 to be parked outside in a lot with a green pass to be kept on windshield. Our second car didn't arrive until the second day of our stay but to make things easier my father decided to pay for it upfront during check in to hold until the 2nd car arrived. He held onto both of them and kept on the windshield of the 1st vehicle. In a nutshell, the green ticket was taken away from him and told that once the second car arrived it would be handed back. No problem, my father understood. I arrive with the second car and the young lady, TRICIA, who was very rude and unhelpful told us that there was no way that the rangers who were at the shack by entrance took the pass from my father, because there was nothing under our name up at the desk. So I asked her if she's referring to my father being a liar, she said yes. I couldn't believe her, I couldn't believe her attitude and her lack of customer service but I requested to no longer speak to her considering she kept rolling her eyes as I was speaking and as if I was bothering her for requesting something that was ALREADY PAID FOR! Fortunately there was a supervisor whom was very helpful and stated that the green ticket would be issued but if there was a 3rd vehicle with the "supposedly missing" ticket that they would have to handle it. I had no problem considering there are only two vehicles with the campsite booked. I'm just disappointed in her nasty attitude speaking me from across the room being unhelpful assuming we were liars. Not cool.
