"Best campsite ever!"  August 2019

Enchanting resort like property 5 miles from the beach!  SO much more than a fabulous campsite!  Free firewood!  Complimentary beach passes!  Boats, SUPs, Kayaks, Hammocks, etc ALL INCLUDED for the length of your stay - and all on a private lake.   

Explore coastal beaches and attractions then retreat to a beautiful scenic lake with a dock, boating, fire pit, lookout-tower, trails, fishing, beach passes and chairs; ALL INCLUDED!

We are located on the edge of the NJ Pinelands on a clear sandy lake in the town of Cape May Court House, 5 miles from the pure white beaches of Stone Harbor and Avalon, and just 12 miles from historic Cape May!

We welcome solo travelers and couples looking for peace and tranquility and a reconnection with nature; quiet, mindful guests with a caretaker philosophy for the land and yourselves.  Because of the open body of water, and the other guests at the lake seeking solace, we prefer all guests to be at least 12 years old.  Extra guest charge applies to any guest after the first two.   

We ask you to leave our property as pristine as you find it so that those that follow you may enjoy fully.  Your spacious private site is surrounded by peaceful waters with an abundance of nature.  The site has an amazingly comfortable hammock for two, a picnic table, a fire pit and cooking grate.  Shower, bathroom as well as daily kayaks, canoe and paddle board use included with your booking.  Outdoor bathroom is closed mid Nov - late March.

Firewood provided; small fires please.  Over the fire cooking grate at site.  

Outdoor amenities (boats, trails, etc) are shared with my family and other guests.  There are 3 other accommodations on property for guests, though only one campsite.  Property and amenities are for registered guests ONLY - NO visitors.

We do not offer credits or refunds due to the discomforts of nature. The fun continues rain, shine or humidity.  

NEARBY ACTIVITIES: Beaches, Birding, Boating, Biking, Tennis, Fishing, Historical Sites, Surfing, Horseback, Museums, Vineyards, Golf Courses, Botanical Gardens, Lighthouses, County Park with Free Zoo, Cape May Lewes Ferry to Historic Lewes, Shopping, Dining, and so much more.

Quiet, lovely and private camping site. If you're looking to get away from everything, this is your spot. The site itself was pristine (as was the bathroom!!) , and I must say it's truly a gem in the land-sharing/camping niche. I have to admit I'm a bit of a groupie for this spot, as I've had the pleasure of staying at this lakeside location in their tiny cabin and in the main house rentals, and it has been incredible each time around. The campsite is off a path around the lake, about a 5-10 minute walk from where you park near the main house. You are surrounded by glorious water views, but the site itself is secluded and peaceful. Plus there are plenty of trees around for prime hammock hangs :) And did I mention the bathroom? They have the most amazing outdoor shower with twinkle lights and a pergola covered in beautiful flowering vines. It's incredible. I've been to plenty of campsites and cabins and at this point, this one is by far my favorite.

All in all, you can tell this is a lovingly maintained family owned property. Enjoy your stay, bring a hammock and a kayak (or use theirs), but most importantly: plan to arrive in time to catch the amazing sunset over the lake!

Views on views on views! Wow what a great spot. From the moment I stepped foot on the property serenity took over. You are welcomed by lush green everywhere and a spectacular lake. A 5 minute trail takes you to the campsite, a secluded spot surrounded by lake views. Don't forget to stop by "Ted's Tower" on your way! Swim, sail, paddle board, canoe, float... whatever you do, make sure to get in that lake because the water is perfect. Reflect on the dock or lounge in one of the many chairs or hammocks by the shore to take in all the beauty and peace around you. And what is camping without a campfire? Firewood is provided, making life even easier. The vine covered bathroom is cleanly and complete with fairy lights when night falls.

This place is the perfect getaway if you are looking for an intimate and beautiful spot. The grounds are well maintained and the host, Robin, was very attentive.

We had a great time at Robin's site. We were looking for something private but with access to facilities also in a good location for summer fun. This was exactly that. On top of that, Robin was an excellent host. She is very easy to communicate with and was eager to know if there was anything she could do to improve our experience.

The camping area is tucked away on the side of the lake away from the house and her other rentals. We had lot's of stuff with us but the walk never felt too long and she lent us a wagon to make it even easier. The site is pretty big and had everything we needed including a picnic table, fire ring, grill grate and shovel. It's right on the water so there were gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The outdoor bathroom is located back at the house. It was very clean, well stocked and spacious. There's lots to do on the property too including swimming/boating in the lake and walking the grounds. Just wish we had booked a couple more days to take full advantage of the amenities!

The whole Cape May area is really amazing and we had lots of options to explore beyond the property. The beaches are about 15 mins driving and lots of Shore attractions nearby. We would definitely come back!

The campsite was spectacular and I couldn't be more than happy with this place. Robin is an absolute darling and she was very attentive and accommodating. This is indeed a gem, perfect for couple and singles alike. I stayed for 2 nights with stargazing views, nice wind breeze and a comfortable hammock that I fell asleep on several times. As a female, I felt safe and relax to roam around w/o feeling any kind of threat. I took the kayak boat on my own and explored around the lake. Overall, it was one of the most relaxing and hands down the loveliest place I have ever stayed in. Thank you Robin for providing me this safe haven to re-center myself.

We had a lovely 4-night stay at Robin's campsite, and we'll definitely be looking for a time to come back soon! The site and the whole property are beautifully maintained, and every little detail has been considered. We spent a couple of mornings swimming in the lake, went to Stone Harbor and Avalon for great meals and beach time, and went birding and exploring around Cape May. We really enjoyed the quiet, peaceful nature of this campsite, and Robin was incredibly helpful with recommendations for restaurants and a loan of a couple of camp chairs when we forgot ours! The bathroom and shower access were the cherries on top - we couldn't have asked for a better getaway from DC life. Thank you to Robin for being such a super host and creating this amazing space!

I'm almost temped not to review this place so we can assure a future booking. The campsite was perfect! We spent all weekend watching fish, turtles and birds and alternating between the campsite and the access beach. It's a walk-in site with a 4-5 minute easy hike from the house (where you park) and shower/bathroom/water to get to the campsite. If you're car campers like we are and pack a lot of stuff, take note that you'll be doing a few trips back to the car. (If you're new to camping, it might not be the best option just because walk-ins add an extra layer of work.) It was worth it for the seclusion for us! If you're planning on arriving after dark definitely take the hike into account and bring headlamps/flashlights. Robin left out a very handy wagon that we used to cart our stuff.

Robin was great to work with and check-in was a breeze. She also offered some tips on great places to grab food if you want to take a break from campfire meals. :)

Bring bug spray - it's camping after all. We did see ticks, but no more than we usually do when we're out in the woods. The site has a picnic table, a lovely firepit / cooking grate, and gorgeous views. (And free firewood!) The outdoor shower was beautiful and the lake was perfect for swimming, paddle-boarding or just floating.

We're already discussing when we'll be back. Thanks for sharing this special spot with us Robin!

Amazing experience! Definitely exceeded our expectations! 5 mins walk from the main house but feels as private as it possibly can. Robin is an amazing host! I would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to get away from busy city life. 10 stars out of 5!!!
