“Tightly packed sites, but nice park overall, great location, and tons of amenities”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Site was not level at all, very tight, and oddly-shaped. However, it was definitely one of the more spacious RV sites in the campground. The bugs (mainly gnats, a few mosquitoes) were horrendous while we were setting up. After a few hours of burning citronella and mosquito coils, they were tolerable.

This campground was huge, and very crowded. We were there in the days leading up to 4th of July, and there was not a single empty site. Our section had mostly pop-ups and mid-size travel trailers, so the sites were all grassy. However, the area with pull-through sites for big rigs was just a huge RV parking lot. All roads were very narrow and winding. We did fine with the pup, but can’t imagine trying to navigate a large motorhome through there. Crowding/space issues aside, this is a really nice (albeit expensive) campground. Everything, from the grounds, to rec halls, to pool and laundry, was sparkling clean and beautifully maintained. Staff was very friendly, as well. Tons of stuff to do here, especially for families: arts & crafts, indoor movie theatre, games, civil war reenactments, wine tastings, etc. We were certainly never bored, and the kids thought they had died and gone to heaven. Bathrooms were very clean as well, and there was surprisingly never a wait for the showers. Free daily pancake breakfast is included during the on-season, which was nice.

Overall, this is a really nice place, but much more of a resort than a campground in my opinion. The kids loved it, but I’ll always prefer the wooded seclusion of a state or national park. However, if I was looking for a more action-packed, activities-filled “glamping” experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to return.

UPDATE- July 2017: Stayed here over 4th of July weekend for the 2nd year in a row, in site #119 this time, and we’re thinking of making it an annual family tradition. Same great activities, noise and crowds as last year, but we had a blast again. The bathhouses looked much shabbier and dirtier to me this year, for some reason. Still definitely usable, but I’ve been far more impressed with the cleanliness, ventilation and overall condition of MD State Park bathhouses. So, back to the peace and quiet of camping on public lands for a while. Til next time!
