Kite Island? What the fuck is Kite Island? I've lived in the area all my life, and I've nevr even heard of that before.
Its not an official place, and not much of a real island. Its just what the kiters call it. Is in Barnegnet Bay: http://newind.org/viewtopic.php?t=86
Just a place where we can escape all the tourists...and in my case, focus on learning with out killing said tourists!
HAHA The second picture on that page made me laugh so hard. Oh my god that's hilarious. It's like a 4 square foot pile of sand! Lol. So funny.
Edit: Meant to add some places to camp.http://www.state.nj....ps/shormap.html
The fourth one is the closest one with camping at about 40 minutes away. Hope this helps. Doubt it. NJ isn't really a place with many state parks, and for good reason I think.
Double edit: Actually, looking at the county right above that one, there's a state park with camping at the bottom tip of it, in a town called cheesequake: http://www.state.nj....heesequake.html
It's only a half hour away, but it might or might not be a better choice depending on where you're coming from. It's north of Deal, as opposed to south west of it.
I honestly recommend a hotel/motel or something. It'll be $20 to camp and with gas prices as they are (and who knows how they will be come August), since both of those parks are out of the way, it'll make a huge difference (either go to and setup, then go to Deal, then come back, and go to Kite Island, or go to Deal, go setup camp, next day to Kite Island). That's like $60+ worth of gas, making a $50-60 motel room much more practical.
