  • I love the setting of this place! Prices for camping are not too bad either except the fee you are charged when you book through the website. They have canoe rentals, a swimming area on Lake Mummy with a life guard, a small gift shop where you can also buy firewood in case you forgot to bring some. The only thing I would like to see NJ state parks to change is their alcohol prohibited policy. Other than that, a great and safe place to take your family!
  • Love this place. If you choose a cabin with beds make sure you bring extra blankets cause they're kind of hard. But loved the sray bathrooms were clean buy lot of bugs. Mosquitos will bite. The lake is clean and love it . There's also a nice park for children. It's a lovely way to spend a weekend.
  • The experience was terrible. None of the rules were enforced, camp cite was loud until 3-4 am when quiet hours are between 10pm-6am, did not see any park rangers, bathrooms were not maintained at all and gross, and our camp site grill was bowed and hard to use. I would not recommend camp site to anyone over popular summer camping dates like Fourth of July ect.
  • My family and I had a great time at Belleplain this past Memorial Day weekend. The other campers were quiet and respectful. The lake was well kept and my son had a wonderful time swimming and playing with other kids. The only downside I could say is that we found several ticks... both big and small on ourselves and our gear. We were also chewed to pieces by mosquitos, gnats, and no see ums. Bug spray is a must! Also, the bathrooms are not the cleanest... lots of dead bugs everywhere. However, in terms of being $20 a night, you can't beat the price. The lake was definitely our favorite part of the trip!
  • Belleplain is a lesser know forest with a campground in the Jersey Pines. Close to Cape May, it makes for a nice place to camp in the spring and fall months when the temperature is not too high and the ticks aren't out in full swing. Lake Nummy, although small, is nice for kayaking especially in its two eastern reaches where one can discover a variety of flora including ferns and cedars. Paved and unpaved fire roads, hiking and biking trails also offer numerous outdoor activities. Nearby East Creek Pond and Pickle Factory Pond are also decent paddling ponds.
