Well, being a full-timer and having spent the last two summers at Earle, its still a fine place to stay. There is the hole left by the departure of Muriel and the obvious difference in management, but all in all, you probably won't be disappointed. Its great for folks trying to get into the city and do some site seeing, as well as folks that want to head down to the beach for the day. The $25 a night fee (no extended stay rate) might be a bit hard to swallow if you do much traveling around on the military bases like we do but as they have said "its cheaper than what you can find out in town." The wifi is very reliable and we have never had an issue with the laundry (1.25 wash/1.75 dry) room. The PX/class six is small but provides enough to survive until you can make it down the road to Walmart. The current manager does his job but we sure do miss what Muriel provided. She would always come through the park ask us if we needed anything and we never had any doubt we could count on her to take issues for action. The new regime looks at it as more of a job and less of a passion like Muriel. [sigh] But, if you are looking for a spot that's quiet and close to the Garden State Parkway, you can't go wrong.
We are currently staying at Earle NWS, we are enjoying the convenience of this location, as it is close to the shore, and also the Garden State Parkway. Being a first time New Jersey visitor, we find getting to the highlights that this state has to offer is a big challenge. The road signs are not as visibly or frequently displayed. Without a detailed map or GPS there have been some serious challenges, which we have turned into some laughable situation. We agree whole-heartedly with what Bob as previously stated this is a very pleasant place to stay and if we find ourselves in this are again, we'll be back. Jack USAF - Ret.
E.W. left this review using the Directory software: Pretty nice RV campground. Site setup is a little strange with the electrical hookups at the back of the area and the water nearer the front and the sewer in the middle of the pad (newer sewer pipe is also alongside the water, but was nearly 55 feet from the electrical outlets). Just be sure you look at the site and know where you want to park. Not hard we needed to use 30' of electrical cabling and about 25' of waterhose to span the distance between the two. The base is almost like a ghost town. I drove our car over to the small NEX and only saw 1 person and 1 car on base. Nothing to do on base, but if you like quiet, this is it. No shower room, no laundry room, no amenitites at all except for full service sites. Wildlife we've seen so far within just a few minutes include deer, groundhogs, and squirrels galore. We lived on this base several years ago and my dog got lyme disease here, so be careful of your pet and kids... ticks are everywhere.
Very nice campground. Nice level hardstand sites. Only stayed a couple of days to visit friends in the area. Did not find the strange sewer location to be a problem with my 31 foot trailer. Placed the hose in the sewer before backing the trailer over it and connecting to the termination valve. We will be returning and spending some more time there to visit the big city.
