Bring your own campervan or stay in one of ours -- enjoy swimming, paddling, and tubing on the river, or hiking and mountain biking through our trails. We're located in rural, outdoorsy South Jersey, and while our property is only 1 acre, we're surrounded by trails, trees, and right on a National Wild and Scenic River. During the warmer months, the Great Egg Harbor River is one of the best birding spots in the U.S., and is fantastic for kayaking, river tubing, and fishing. You'll be able to use our rope swing, star-gaze while laying on the 6-person hammock, and cook on the fire pit. We're also walking distance from miles and miles of hiking, mountain biking, ATV-ing, and horseback riding trails for adventurous afternoons. Drop in your kayak at Penny Pot park and kayak straight our property, or leave from our dock and get picked up 5 miles down at Weymouth park. Spend an hour tubing down our river and walk right back to camp with a 15 minute walk in the woods, then do it all over again! The town of Hammonton (the "Blueberry Capital of The World") is just 15 minutes away, and has a super cute downtown where you can find awesome shops, restaurants, wineries and breweries. The beaches in Atlantic City are only 30 minutes out, and Philadelphia is 45 minutes by car or 1 hour by train. Local grocers like Bagliani's, or large stores like Walmart and Shoprite are located within a 10-15 minute drive. Gas stations, a WaWa, and three restaurants can be found within a 5-8 minute drive. Experience a relaxing weekend out in the woods and by the water, while staying close to amenities and other fun outings. If you bring your own Van, Schoolie, Trailaer, or mid-sized RV, we have 30amp and 15amp hookups available in our driveway. All trash brought into or created on site must be packed out when you leave.

Bring Your Own Tent
Feels very private even though you're right up against the house. Ground is sandy and mossy in spots... some of our stakes pulled out easily, so maybe bring sandbags/weights if heavy wind is expected. Otherwise there are a few trees around to tie off to. BRING BUG SPRAY! You're not roughing it, but you're in the woods. Tatiana went above and beyond as a host by providing detailed advice on EVERYTHING in the area and offering to shift our date when the weather was not in our favor. Highly recommend visiting the sunflower farm nearby, just make sure to put your cut flowers in by the bathroom. Ours did not do well in the heat outside with us. A very pleasant stay.

Very accommodating host!
There was some problems with Hipcamp's system in regards to my booking so when I arrived there were already some other campers there and the host was not expecting us - however Tatiana was incredibly accommodating and even allowed us to stay in the camper van on site since there was not a tent site available. The whole property is lovely and the indoor spa was fantastic, there was even a really neat exercise machine in there my partner was very excited about. Very accepting and friendly vibes, I'd absolutely stay again given the opportunity.

Creek camping
We loved camping on Tatis property. The river was so nice to swim in and kayak in. Our dog loved it! It was so peaceful and quiet, and the neighbors were so nice!

Vanlife By The River
Lots to offer
We loved our first van experience. Do yourself a favor and look at the add-ons—you won’t be disappointed. We wish we had a few more days to check out more of the area’s recreation, breweries, and farm stands. Save yourself down time though to just hang out at the van.

Vanlife By The River
Such a fun time!
We had such a nice time. The van was amazing, and so was the views of the backyard over looking the river. We we able to bring our dog, who enjoyed the hiking trails near the van. Tatiana was so helpful and made suggestions of local restaurants and activities in the area. We ended up going sunflower picking, per Tatiana’s suggestion. We will definitely visit again

Winding River Camp & Kayak
Tatiana’s space was absolutely stunning and so peaceful. She welcomed us when she arrived and showed us around the property and we felt totally safe and relaxed. Camping space was perfect with riverfront access and all the tools necessary for cooking over the fire. 10/10 would recommend
