Not only are the on-site facilities and activities geared for groups (dedicated group camping coordinator, private hayride, group photo) to enhance their camping experience, Holly Shores locale offers close proximity to educational and fun attractions for groups. Historic Cape May, the Cape May Lighthouse, and Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum make for educational spots to learn about our one-of-a-kind location and the Wildwood Beaches and Boardwalk offer fun for everyone. Holly Shores is in the midst of world-class birding and migratory grounds and is near other outdoor activities such as charter-fishing, whale-watching and golf...we are close to several wineries and breweries too! Close Encounters: Winter whale Sightings in Cape May County Nikolas Pattantyus took this amazing footage of a humpback off Stone Harbor in early December while on a paddle board. While Humpbacks are seen off the coast of Cape May year round, humpback whales have been visiting New Jersey’s coastline more often to feed on the high number of bunker in the water since early October.
