On the doorstep of everything the Cape May Peninsula has to offer, the King Nummy Trail Campground is a family and pet-friendly campground near Delaware Bay. It offers a wealth of recreational facilities to keep all ages busy and overnight options to suit all styles of campers wanting to vacation in New Jersey.
RV camping at the King Nummy Trail Campground includes access to full hookup and water/electric-only sites, as well as cabins and tent-only sites. There are two bathhouses with clean restrooms and showers, a camp store where you can pick up essentials, and a couple of laundry rooms if you need to catch up on your washing.
Aside from a swimming pool where you can cool off during the summer months, the King Nummy Trail Campground also features a children’s playground and volleyball and basketball courts. Picnic sites are scattered throughout the campground, and there’s a game room for entertaining kids when the weather’s not favorable outside.
Camping at the King Nummy Trail Campground is a good base for visiting the Beaver Swamp Wildlife Management Area. It’s named after the beavers that once inhabited its freshwater swamp, which was created by the wooden dam of Clint Ludlam’s sawmill. While the dam has been restored, the beavers haven’t returned, although the WMA is now a popular birdwatching destination. Red-tailed hawks and a variety of wintering waterfowl can be spotted here, together with occasional bald eagles that can sometimes be seen soaring in the skies above.
The Beaver Swamp Fish and Wildlife Management Area lies adjacent to the Lizard Tail Swamp Nature Preserve, a landscape dominated by towering pine oaks, sweetgum, and red maples. The preserve lies at the headwaters of Bidwell Creek. It protects a rare tract of Cape May lowland swamp that’s managed by the Nature Conservancy. Follow one of the hiking trails that meander through the preserve while keeping your eyes peeled for migratory birds, such as songbirds and hawks that frequent the preserve on their annual migration north.
The King Nummy Trail Campground is a good base for exploring the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge, which sprawls across more than 11,000 acres and is renowned for its exceptional birdwatching. It provides critical habitat for a variety of migratory species, with hundreds of thousands of shorebirds flocking here each year on their journey from Central and South America to their Arctic breeding grounds. Highlights include sightings of threatened piping plovers and yellow-throated warblers, as well as peregrine falcons and Atlantic horseshoe crabs.
Campsites at the King Nummy Trail Campground are ten minutes' drive from the township of Cape May Court House, where you’ll find a couple of supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a good selection of fast-food restaurants and eateries.
Alternatively, you can make the 35-minute drive north to Ocean City, where you’ll find a more extensive choice of services, supermarkets, and eateries. Famed for its beaches, shopping malls, and amusement attractions, Ocean City is a vibrant destination along the Jersey Shore. It’s home to iconic entertainment venues such as Gillian’s Wonderland Pier and Playland’s Castaway Cove, where you’ll find rides to suit all ages. Stroll along the Ocean City Boardwalk to soak up the sights, sounds, and smells before taking a dip in the refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
A short drive north from Ocean City will see you in Atlantic City, another beachside resort that has established a reputation for its glitzy lifestyle. You can try your luck in one of the numerous casinos and get your retail fix in the designer stores or pick up bargains at the Tanger Outlets. If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to Storybook Land (whose rides are themed after popular children’s stories) and visit the famous statue of Lucy the Margate Elephant. She was constructed in 1881 and has now been designated as a National Historic Landmark, with sweeping views across the Atlantic Ocean on offer if you climb onto her back.
Just 15 minutes’ drive from the King Nummy Trail Campground is the Cape May County Park & Zoo, which provides a home to a variety of animals representing around 250 different species. Spot big game wildlife in the 57-acre African Savanna and watch the playful family of ring-tailed lemurs before getting up close to bald eagles in their naturally-inspired enclosure. The park also features landscaped country gardens where you can stretch your legs and a children’s carousel whose riding seats are inspired by global wildlife species.
