A Short Story by Long Time Camper Brian Wick
“Sunday Night at Camp″
“The mornings were glorious. Up around sunrise or so, I remember the scent of fresh air filtered through huckleberry bushes and dry pin-oak leaves. And the distinct aroma of our propane-fired Coleman stove. That little metal stove would clink and clank and rattle as Dad pumped the miniature red fuel tank. I couldn’t wait to eat. Watching the blue flames and hearing its low hiss, I’d stand close enough to feel its heat. Dad cooked pancakes and Taylor ham …

… Huck Finn would’ve loved this place. This was my Mississippi River, complete with hideouts, fictional bad guys, and general adventure. And it had a cast of characters …”

Lots of things at Baker’s Acres have changed since we opened our gates in 1968 but we will always remain the place, “Where Friends Are Made for Life”. Click here to read more of “Sunday Night at Camp” by long time camper, Brian Wick.
We planned our trip last minute and on a whim and I have to say we had the best time ever!!! The camp sites are spacious & clean and can accommodate most any type of camper! We were so impressed with the quiet time rule & how everyone around us just seemed to settle in around 11:00PM. It's the perfect time to just sit & unwind by the camp fire & listen to the sounds of nature instead of the daily hoopla of everyday life! The kids had a great time as the pool, playground, arcade, playing with the other kid campers and then taking a ride on the evening hay ride! The convenience store offered just about anything one may have needed or forgotten and the staff was super friendly! Bakers Acres allows pets which offered us an opportunity to experience a true “family vacation” without the worries of having to leave our new pup MiMi behind. We love, loved, LOVED the Saturday farm tractor that drove around selling fresh produce, honey & fruit...WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME IDEA!!! Also, we attended the Spaghetti Dinner & wanted to say THANKS to the staff & volunteers for all of their hard work & efforts...everything was so nice & delicious! We look forward to camping with you again Bakers Acres but this time we will be looking into making longer-term reservations! A+++++ all the way! Thank you Bakers Acres for the perfect family get away!
Sincerely, April, John, Mylam, Maylen & MiMi too!
My family and I have been going to Baker’s Acres for years, and we look forward to many more years to come. We have made many memories. I think your motto definitely suits the campground. One year we met two young boys and their caring and sweet father. We met them when we were at the playground. We went with them back to their trailer, and the kids played together while their Father and I sat on the porch and talked. The next day, they invited us to go with them to a nearby lighthouse. It was truly spectacular. To this day, we are still friends. Thanks so much for allowing us to have such a wonderful time. We look forward to coming back this year in August.

We’re so glad we tried this campground. We have been coming to Jersey at least once yearly for 19 years. This is the most comfortable and “home type” camping place we’ve stayed. Next time we come we can pack light and enjoy your campsite to the max.

We absolutely enjoyed every moment we were at your campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were nice size and (we) loved watching the different birds traveling thru them. This was one of the most enjoyable trips we’ve taken in a while. We will definitely be back to Baker’s Acres again.

Dear Jack, Mo, the entire Baker family and Staff at Baker’s Acres,

As you know, we sold our camper. Mike and I wanted to take the time to write a letter of appreciation for all the wonderful years here. There are not enough words to express our thanks for many years (10 plus) at Baker’s Acres Campground. It is hard to believe how fast the years have gone by!

When we first became seasonal, our sons were 16, 12 and 10 years old. Through the years we have enjoyed not only the camping but all the activities too. I remember we could not wait for the season to start! Memorial Day Weekend we never missed! We also especially loved Dixieland Afternoon with the band and the cookout. Every year the band would sing Happy Birthday to Paul because I would request it! The boys loved the hayrides and the activities too. And the pool with lifeguards Monica and Nikki … what fun! We had many campfires and, after the kids grew up, Mike and I would have quiet campfire evenings together listening to music and sometimes even slow dancing by the fire.

There are a lot of things that make Baker’s Acres special. Baker’s Acres gave us the opportunity for family time and to build relationships with people like us. Mike and I have friends there. Our neighbors, Mike and Loe, Mike and Donna and family were great! Even today, our children are still friends with people that they met from the campground. It was wonderful to watch the Baker kids grow up, too.

It was sad to sell our camper, but it was time. I am so grateful a family bought it because now they can enjoy what we had. Our family had so many wonderful times at Baker’s Acres.

Thanks again to all: Mo, Jack, family and staff for the many good years. We will always remember. Also, Jack a special thanks to you and the staff for driving the golf carts around at night. It always made us feel safe.

P.S. Thanks for all you do. You do make a difference in this world.
Dear Baker's Acres, Jack, Mo and crew, thank you for your hospitality. Phil and I were impressed with how organized and clean your campground is, you really have a great crew and are inviting to a very friendly family oriented group of campers. Our grandchildren are young, so we take them camping close to home, it's easy access for the parents. We thought your campground was the best place we ever stayed in New Jersey and we wouldn't go anywhere else. The boys had a great time at Wet Hay Ride and went home exhausted, what more can you ask for. Thank you again and we'll see soon.
Sue and Phil
