Summer is just around the corner and beach vacation destinations are booking up fast. Although we love our home state of Pennsylvania, its noticeably lacking in ocean views, so we’re hitching up the travel trailer, hopping in the truck and heading east to the Jersey Shore. Enjoy summer sunshine and peaceful ocean waves, splash around with the kids at the water park, or relax with a drink by the pool at these twelve gorgeous campgrounds by the Jersey Shore.
Ocean View Resort is easily one of the best campgrounds on the Jersey Shore with tons of water activities inside and outside the park. One camp amenity sure to be a hit is the Buccaneer Bay Splash Park – a pirate themed water park in the campground! Play on the “anchored” pirate ship, spray water on unsuspecting parents, and slide down the wreckage into the shallow waters. The campground is pet friendly and has access to Greenbriar Pond for relaxing catch and release fishing. Other notable camp amenities include the Ocean View Café, the lake pavilion, two playgrounds, an 18-hole mini golf course, free boat storage during your stay and more!
