Is Seasonal Camping For Me?

This year we have had a great deal of interest in campers looking for a seasonal campsite.  Our season at Holly Shores begins in early April and concludes at the end of October.  Our campers choose Holly Shores for the season for the convenience, safety, proximity to the many activities offered in the area, the many friends they have met and enjoy all summer, and the reasonable cost.

There are many reasons to consider a seasonal site at Holly Shores but first you need to consider what kind of camping experience you are seeking and in what equipment.  We have seasonal campers that spend the summer with us in all kinds of campers including:

Tag along campers-a trailer of various sizes pulled by a car or truck.


Fifth wheel campers are popular and must utilize a heavy duty truck to transport.


Self-contained motor home that has an engine and you can drive it.  They come in many sizes from 24’ to 45’.


Finally,  park model campers-usually 12’ wide and 35’ long and more like a real home with shingle roofs and more living area.  I have taken a photo of each of these for you to see.


The next considerations is to decide to have a camper like a park model with a deck and optional screen rooms or to have a camper that gives you the option to easily remove from the campground in order to take it home for the winter or to travel with your family.  The Park Model is like having a home at the shore.  With a deck and three season room attached you have more than 600 square feet of living space!  You can purchase a park model here at Holly Shores from our “for sale” list or go to reputable dealer who will deliver and set up your new home away from home.

Which ever type of camper you choose having a seasonal site offers to make your vacation time more convenient, and more enjoyable!

Convenience:  Once you have set up your camper for the season there is no more breaking down on Sunday, loading up all your stuff, and hauling it home.  Just get in the car on Thursday or Friday and ride to Holly Shores.  Open the door to your camper and immediately begin to relax and enjoy.  Sleep in your own bed!  You can also add up the fuel and toll savings every time you come; get 25 miles to a gallon and more just bringing the car versus the cost of trucking the camper to the shore and getting only 8-10 miles per gallon—the savings add up!!

There are no leaves to rake or grass to cut—our staff does it all!

Safety:  In your own camper you do not have to worry about social distancing.  We are following all necessary protocols to ensure your safety while here at Holly Shores.  We also have a 24 hour security gate which requires a card pass to enter the property.  In addition, our general managers and cabin staff live on the premises and are always available in the event you are in need.  Your children can ride their bikes, scooters, and walk around the campground like we used to as kids in our hometown neighborhood.

Social Activity:  Our seasonal campers tell us that living here at Holly Shores creates a comfortable social environment.  You will find that you really get to know your neighbors.  One seasonal said that it is so reassuring to know that their neighbors are just seconds away and always willing to give a helping hand.  Many enjoy sitting by the campfire together over a homecooked dinner on the grille. They love the idea of being able to enjoy all three seasons here at the park.  They watch as the leaves come in the spring and fall in the Autumn.

Family Activities:  Holly Shores offers activities throughout the summer for all the campers to enjoy.  We have a pool that is heated in the spring and fall, shuffleboard, volleyball, a jumping pillow that the kids love, and basketball.  Our hiking trail takes you back to the New Jersey Department of Fisheries where three pristine lakes offer fishing, and kayaking.  Just across the street from the park is a 12 mile paved bike and walking trail that goes south toward Cape May and North to our famous Cape May County Zoo.

Every year we have a seasonal BBQ to thank our seasonal guests for choosing Holly Shores as their “home” at the shore.

Just a few miles away is Historic Cape May and Iconic Wildwood.

We have award winning breweries and vineyards within minutes of the camping resort.

Too much to do and just not enough time!!!

Sound Investment:  Your seasonal site rental fee includes:  one car, two adults, and two unmarried children under the age of 18.  Two grandchildren under the age 18 can be substituted.  One pet is included and a second is permitted for a fee.  All you pay for is your electric usage; water and sewer, cable and Wifii are included.  We have been praised for the quality of our high speed Wifi available throughout the camping resort.  Based on a 180 day season the daily cost of enjoying a seasonal site at Holly Shores is just $33.00 per day!!!
