I went for the weekend for a birthday getaway with my friends and it was one of the best weekends! We stayed at the island and had plenty of space to set up a couple of tents, a sitting area by the fire and other tables for activities. The staff could not have been more hospitable and friendly. They helped...

This past weekend I had the pleasure of camping at Surf and Stream with a group of my friends for a little birthday camping trip. It was probably the most fun I've had in quite some time. We stayed at "The Island" which is strictly for tents and it was so cool. Even though there were people set up next...

We arrive late at night and had some problem getting into our campsite and the people there, Paula and Janice and the guys that she rounded up for so very helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we really enjoyed it and if you're ever in the area again we will be so happy...

Just left this place after a 2 day stay and it's nothing to write home about. I was there with my husband and 3 year old. We had a tent site on the island and it didn't look like anyone did any upkeep over there. There was trash left at every site and broken glass all over the place. The...

Campground views are beautiful if you are on the very end with the river. Entry pretty, outside campsite/office nice, public area with ping pong, shuffle board, plenty of seats and a large pretty fire pit which is kept burning. Pools both kiddie and adult are nice and sit up on a hill overlooking campground along with volleyball, basketball. Now, the...

Nothing but good vibes all around. Upon entering we were greeted by staff and campers alike in a welcoming manner. Movies were shown, games were played and fires were made. Myself, along with my brother and cousin, camped on the island which was very cute and roomy. One staff member that really stood out was Richard. He's friendly and helpful...

A great campground to spend a few nights down the shore. The tea-colored river gently flowing through the camp area is an added natural plus. The camp sites are large and not too close together when you are camping in a tent. Bring a load of wood and enjoy the picnic table and fire ring provided. There's a pretty nice...

While planning a family 4 hr. mini-reunion for crabbing at a pier in Seaside with 35 of us from 4 states in attendance, I chose not to drive home at 3am and wanted a home base for 2 or 3 days at the shore. Yes this place is tightly spaced as other reports have mentioned but also has a warm...

I would not recommend this campground at all. First, I really wouldn't call it a campground. 80% of the sites are permanent and most of these sites are run down with very old dilapidated "trailers" on them. There was a continous stench of Marijuana when walking around the campground. It seemed as though most of the staff were residents of...

I've been to Surf and Stream twice to camp with my family when we were hitting the beach at Island Beach State Park. It is reasonably close and the staff have things pretty well organized and the prices are reasonable. Sites are easy to access, restroom/shower facilities available, portable toilets are also placed around the campground. they have a very...
