Ponderosa Campground is located close to some of the best fishing in Cape May County! The Avalon Hodge Podge, 2389 Ocean Drive, Avalon is just 4 miles away. They offer a wide array of fishing and crabbing supplies. One of our favorite places to fish is off the 80 Street Pier. The sunset is beautiful to watch and the atmosphere on the bay is so releaxing. Avalon Hodge Podge has live bait that will make your fishing trip a success. Public Docks in Avalon include: 8th Street, 20th & 5th Avenue, 22nd & 6th Avenue, 23rd Street, 24th & 5th Avenue, 33rd Street, 37th Street, 53rd Street, 57th Street, and 80th Street. Ocean Drive Boat Ramps are located at 53rd and 80th Streets.
We also enjoy renting a boat from Smugglers Cove, 370 83rd St, Stone Harbor. You can rent a boat from 7 am till 5pm and enjoy exploring the bay. The rental includes:
- 13-foot fiberglass boat & 8 hp Yamaha four-stroke motor
