we have been going there for just about 8 yrs. always have a nice time .
2 large pools , clean bath houses, and the owners have always be nice and helpful.
therre are grills right near the pool and nice play area for the kids.
i ve been comming to this campground, off and on for several years,i always found the staff very friendly,campground was always clean and maintained, never had a problem with noise or unruley people,would recomend this campground, i read some of these other reviews, of complaints, maybe it wasnt the campground, maybe they were just people that cant ever be satisied, i ll be back again,
2009 was my first summer there. It was the best summer in 30 years. The owners are very friendly, the place is impeccably well kept. The store actually has everything you need at supermarket prices. It is so nice and peaceful that we just love it.
We spent 2 weeks during the month of August 2008 at this campground with our two kids (5 and 8). We wanted to spend our vacation at the beach so we did not spend a lot of time on the campground, but we had a nice stay there. Here are my comments :
People at the desk were very nice and very helpful. The did their best to make our stay enjoyable and we really appreciated them.
The campground is clean. However they are close to a marsh and because of this there is a slight smell from time to time. We did not feel any discomfort about it.
The sites were clean and large enough for our pop up and screenhouse.
They have some activities on the site, but we did not participate in them or used their installation such as the pool, rec. room, etc.
There is hot water in the showers but you need quarters to operate them. They were not too busy. Everytime I went there was a free shower and did not have to wait, either in the morning or at night.
Bathroom are OK, thought they don't have any locks.
The campground is quiet after 11 pm. However, it was very noisy sometimes up to a few minutes before the quiet hours. We had a site just by the kids playground and the kids playing there up to 11 were VERY loud. This was the biggest inconvenient we found at that campground. I would recommend to choose a site as far as possible from that playground.
It is a little farther than other campround from the beaches, but it was still a short drive. (After comparing Cape May, Wildwood and Stone Harbor beaches, we went to Stone Harbor for the rest of our stay. There is a small fee to acces the beach and it is a lot cheaper if you pay for a weekly pass, but the beaches were nicer, parking was easy and it is not as long as at Wildwood to get to the water)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and would go again."
Within two hours of arriving at this campground we knew we would never camp there again.
The week we were there we saw two women working in the camp store. One of them was very nice and helpful. The other was rude and very condescending. She spoke to me like I was a small child. I didn't appreciate that at all.
The woman supervising the pool told me I could not take my daughter in the water with the type of swimsuit she was wearing. It has an attached floatation device. I saw at least 3 other kids wearing similar suits, in the pool. When I asked why she just replied that the type of suit my daughter was wearing is not allowed.
There was absolutely no shade at our campsite.
The flies were AWFUL. My oldest daughter and I were bitten up so badly by the horseflies (or whatever they were) we had to go to the WalMart on the 2nd day there to get Aveeno. No amount of insect repellent would keep those horrible flies away.
We were not told when we made the reservations that we would have to pay for the showers. 25-cents does not give you a very long shower. It cost us an extra $3/day just to shower. Also, the water smells terrible, like sulfur.
We camped at the nummy in july 2007. The campground is not close as the others known at wildwood (seashore, beachcomber, etc) but it's not really far away anyway.
The 2 pools are well maintained and the kids playgrounds looks new. The bathrooms had an average cleanliness level but i never found a shower for handicapped persons. Strangely it was the first time i saw a bathroom without any hand soap.
In the week it's very calm and we were close to be alone at the pool. But at the week-end it's a little messy because of all the seasonals that come at midday friday and leave at midday sunday. Nancy at the main office was very funny to talk everytime i come to the main office.
One night, some kids wanted to party past 11 pm but i didn't took long before the owner of the campground talked to them to be more quiet. They agreed without any problems. It's safe for the kids because it doesn't look to have any golf cart on the site and the cars a rolling slow. It's a nice place to sleep.
Sadly there's no activities like santa in july and evening movies as you can find at the seashore.
Maybe we were lucky but i'ld consider to come back to the nummy for my vacation.
owners of this campground are unprofessional and have no empathy for people.

I had a horrible experience here, the campgound owners have no compassion what so ever about people. One owner was rude and shorttempered with me and my children. The bathrooms are dirty, the water stinks, it actually has a odor of sulfur. I would never go to this campground again I would rather camp elsewhere
