With the world moving at a faster pace, the idea of camping in a natural setting by a river becomes a highly desirable concept.
Winding River Campground offers a relaxing getaway where you can experience, if only for a while, the simplicity of living among the trees in a tent, rustic cabin, or riverside site to park up your RV and get a complete hook-up of electricity (30 amp), sewer, and water.
The amenities are superb, with restrooms, hot showers, a laundry room, and Wi-Fi available, plus there are picnic tables, a general store, games room, and fire-rings for barbequing. The hosts love putting on fun-filled events and if its "Kentucky Derby" day, the entire camp can join in the racing fun. There are activities galore throughout the entire camping season which runs from May 1st through to October 15th.
If the kids have been upset at the prospect of leaving their dog behind, you can wipe the tears away as it’s all good to bring pooches to the campground. They must stay on a leash less than six feet in length and be on their best woofer behavior. Dogs can join you in the tent or RV but they are not allowed in any of the cabin rentals. Don’t forget to pack their vaccination certificates that will be asked for on arrival, plus poop bags so you can keep the camp clean.
Established trees dotted around the camp offer plenty of shade with patchy grass, dirt areas, and gravel roads. The Egg Harbor River is right on your doorstep where you can hire canoes, kayaks, and tubes. Experience gliding down the river in an authentic forest setting or take a dip in the heated swimming pool while your kids meet new friends at the cool camp playgrounds.
Camp rates start around $48 a day and you must stay at least two days on weekends and three days if you’re booked in for a well-deserved vacation. If you feel like seeing what Egg Harbor Township has to offer, take a walk through Storybook Land, where childhood nursery rhymes and tales are brought to life in an enchanting park atmosphere of fantasy and fun. Just under an hour will get you to Cape May, where seasonal whale watching is super-popular as is a visit to Cape May County Park & Zoo.
