We read about it in a few places and decided to visit since south jersey foliage is best in the state this season We were not disappointed. The lake area is great. We took the trail around the lake and enjoyed it. The park office personal were very nice and helpful. Good trip all around.

We made reservations for a three night stay and we were disappointed. First night we arrived late and as we were setting up camp we realized there was a large party in the site next to us, they were drinking and very loud, the party continued until 800 am the next morning. No Rangers patrol and the park office just... More

Only drawback, bathrooms and showers. Me, my teenage nephew, and eight year old son had a great time. Lake Nummy was cool and clean. The park staff were all very nice and respectful. I have to also add that this was not my first stay at Belleplaine. As a child my family went there many times. The place hasn't changed... More

This is a serene park with hiking trails & a pretty lake for swimming. It was very quiet even on the weekend before 7/4. There are many campsites, yurts & lean-tos in the campground so reserving a spot on a weekend should not be a problem. Sites are farther apart than other state parks' so they offer more privacy and... More

A great place to spend the day. Hiked the east creek trail and saw one other person in 7 miles. Be prepared for swampy conditions if there's been a lot of rain recently. Boardwalks in some areas but some can require bush wacking if you don't want to get wet.

Had an amazing time with family. Very accommodating and friendly. Only negative was the showers could have been cleaned better. But this is a cabin, the idea to have fun and enjoy the camp site.

Been camping in State parks for over twenty years now. Worst trip yet. 1.The campsites though nice and large, are infested with chiggers. The hundreds of red bite marks start on your feet and over the days work their way up and into the groin region. 2.The bathrooms haven't been cleaned since 1989. My wife named a hair clog in...
