September, 2016 – October, 2016

SHADY PINES CAMPGROUNG RESORT – 443 6th Avenue – Galloway, New Jersey

Cleanliness – 8/10 – The restrooms are new and immaculate, but he grounds could really use some work.

WiFi –  1/10 – There is WiFi, but it doesn’t reach our rig.  Plus, the signal is very weak.  It is better in different areas of the park.  However, I feel that everyone pays the same rate, so the service should be the same at each site.

Amenities – 10/10 – Full hook-ups, restrooms, laundry.  Pool, exercise room, propane sales.  Club house, weekly activities.

Location – 9/10 – Near the water, about 15 – 20 minutes to the New Jersey shore areas, which are all easy to get to.

Sites – 4/10 – Sites are level and gravel.  They are fairly close.  The low score is due to the fact that there are at least two derelict trailers around the park, which should be removed.  We happen to be next to one of them.

Pet Friendly – 5/10 – Regular rules apply.There is a small dog walk area.

Would I return?  Yes

Note:  This park has recently been purchased by Carefree Resort Communities.  I believe this will improve the park substantially over time.

Note#2:  We are staying for 1 month.
