My son and I came for a long weekend for a baseball tournament, we had a wonderful time, the team had a party under the pavilion and there were no issues with us renting it out for our group, they even kept the pool open longer so the kids could swim for the entire party! Tom

I absolutely love this place!!! The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. The campground itself, immaculate! My 10U baseball team and families rented several cabins for a long weekend. Tom, the greatest campground manager in the world, allowed us to use the pavilion

Kate, We are deeply concerned here at Ponderosa Campground to have learned that this situation was not handled to your satisfaction as we take much pride in the happiness of our guests and our accommodations. When we learned about the issues with the refrigerator and our maintenance team member went out to inspect it and was not able to enter until the following day when you had already checked out as we do not enter the cabins if no one is around, at that point they discovered that the refrigerator had been turned down completely to zero, which caused you to lose the perishables you had in there. Unfortunately that is not something that is within our control, when the pre-check was done on that cabin, like every other cabin, the refrigerator was inspected and was operating properly. We would like to extend to you a stay for the length of time you lost at no cost to you. If you would like to take us up on this offer please contact us via email at Admin@PonderosaCampground.com or call us at (609)-465-7794 Thank you so much for your patronage.

Hello There are five cabin's close to the pool but they are all next to each other. If you wan't privacy there are a few not to far from the pool and you get a little more room to yourself. S6, Q1, Q14,Q15, Q2, Q13, and Q12 would be the one's your looking.

"Great Campground"
"Cabins are amazing!"
"Family friendly, not really friend friendly -does that make sense?"
"We stayed in Q6 last year and it was right next to the public baths and we actually loved that because it gave us a little more outside room"
"Pool is mostly empty until about 3pm when families come back from the beach."
