Down by the water, fishing is a favorite pastime, and anglers can expect to catch tautog, striped bass, and flounder in the bay. Other popular activities include birdwatching and picnicking.Another state park just up the coast is Corson's Inlet State Park. This park is excellent for a peaceful day out, as it contains one of the last untouched seaside dune systems in New Jersey. Hikers will enjoy climbing the dunes, and during the walk, keep an eye out for local birds, such as herons, sandpipers, and plovers. The park's inlet makes this the perfect spot for watersports such as boating and fishing, and a boat launch is open to the public every day of the week. Anglers will have a ball here too, and common catches include weakfish, striped bass, and kingfish.Cape May campers may also be itching to explore some of the historic parks along the Delaware River.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
