We went for the weekend. No breakdowns, no towing. Tow vehicle used a quart of oil. We stayed on the South Shore side of Lake Absegami within this forest campground because the sites there seemed larger. For your $20 per night you get a picnic table and rudimentary firebox grill. Potable drinking water pumps rise out of the ground every oh, 25 yards or so. There's clean restrooms, showers, laundry, and a black water dump station, and shade. That's about it. All the many campsites are very spacious, and some might be pull through, but don't count on that. We found it all to our liking, though on our weekend this boondocking campground was quite underutilized (read dead).

It's an easy drive from it to Atlantic City and the rest of the Jersey Shore points of interest, like the huge drive-through Brigantine wildlife refuge, where in winter tons of snow geese can be found. It's Jersey, so you're never far from gasoline, food, restaurants, etc. I even found a gas station selling it at $2.37 per gallon! (Ohmygoodness!)

The dirt there is a sandy mix so the smartest thing we did was bring along a small hand broom for cleaning out the egg floor. Second smartest thing was bringing a 5 gallon plastic bucket for carrying water. Third smartest thing was having California Merlot with the steaks. (Maybe that was number one.)

Oh, dear, upon re-reading all the above it sounds like a boring time was had by all. No no. I even drove my 4x4 onto the Brigantine City beaches where the jet skiers congregate. My 4wheel drive tested out well. A corner store on the main drag, Tony's in Brigantine City, sells absolutely the best ice cream in the state. And we went to the Trump Marina to watch the beautiful people, too. (But Oh, that Merlot!)

Actually, that sounds like my kind of place. That's why we bought a generator!
