Full Review

This was an unusual one-nighter for us at this modest 40 site campground. Normally we’ll just park at a rest stop or casino parking lot, but we planned to meet friends here and there was no other convenient place to park overnight. The campground worked very well for our purposes.

The park is convenient to the highway and only cost us $30 for the night. It was a long back in site, solid gravel, slightly sloped. We booked only a electric/water site (no sewer) because of our short stay. We didn’t even bother to put out our slides or hook up the water. The electric was 50/30 amp, perfectly adequate for our needs. Most of their other sites are full hook up.

The campground is fairly basic, but nice. The bath house is clean and functional. The one dumpster location was completely across the entire campground from our particular site, but walking is healthy. The campground has a coin laundry facility, dog walk area, playground and dump station. There is a small lake on property with a path around it (a half mile, I believe). We weren’t there long enough to assess wifi or TV stations. In and out!

We did have a great visit with our friends.

Bottom Line: Convenient spot if you are visiting the area.

    We’re eastbound heading back to Maryland ( time constraint) need to be there by Sunday morning Wish we could catch up, no telling when we’ll cross tracks this closely again. If you find yourself on the Chesapeake Eastern shore stop by, we have lots of parking.[Image] Get Outlook for iOS ________________________________
