They are gone now. There were two test sites in either 1200 or 1300 off the main road. (Whichever loop is nearest the checkin area).

I guess they took them out around when they built the Premium sites a few years ago.

Campers are notoriously friendly and helpful. I'm sure anyone would be willing to help if he asks them
. It may also help to arrive earlier or later so the chances are better that people will be out. But make sure he gets there with plenty of daylight left to get checked in, parked and set up before dark.

Pilot/flyingJ have RV islands at some, but not all locations. But their prices are not always the best. However, I recommend getting their discount card (cash price even when paying credit, a small discount depending on the fuel type, 10c a gallon off propane, and half price dump fees if you ever find yourself camping where they do not have a dump station.

Like others have said, campers are a friendly group and shouldn't be too hard to find someone to help back in. But yes, practice lots before going and do at least one weekend trip before you go.
Our 1st trip in our Sunline the ring around the toilet leaked. That would have put a damper on a main camping trip.
Also grab the book "the Next Exit" it tells you the best places to pull over for gas/food/potty stops in your RV

I recommend the "Next Exit" book. It lists food and gas stations at each exit off the interstate, with RV friendly places in red. It's a life saver on a long trip like NJ-FL to not be worried about where to get gas/use the bathroom without having to manuever in too-tight parking lots.
