  • North Shore of long Island, so its not isolated camping. If your looking for that head to PA. The campsites are good. Basic tent setup. Great for groups, but you need to book in advance. They fill up and get crowded during the summer. Walk the trails (stay on them though & check for ticks each night and once home) or walk down to the beach (again north shore - LI sound = no waves) and have a nice time.
  • Absolutely love our family reunions at Wildwood! It's always clean, we have an awesome time at square dancing (I've been going since I was 7!) And movie night. Thank you for hosting our family picnic/camping trip for the last 23 years. I have no doubt the next 20 years will be just as great.
  • Surprising camp with pretty good amenities tucked away on Long Island. However, most of the plots are pretty tightly packed. Plus when i went, no one seemed to care about respecting the quiet time. It got really loud with kids running around. At least it wasn't a ruckus of a more serious type. The beach is nice with a pretty good concession stand. The comfort station is big but gets dirty quick.
  • It's a beautiful place and I love the trails. They have varying lengths so you can go for a short or long walk. Stay quiet and you'll see a deer or five. Careful of the bluffs. They slide after every rainfall and you shouldn't climb on them for your own safety. Good campgrounds and right next to a beach with life guards.
  • Nice camp site, many of them are right next to each other. One car per site is stupid. Plus you have to pay $10 for the extra car at a second lot. Some people say they will not even let you unload the second car, we did- just drive it in when you 1st register upon arriving.The rules say you cant but that's crazy! What is nice is having the beach so close and included with camping. The beach has small rocks, not much sand so bring sandals or water shoes.
