Located about 2 hours away from Washington, DC and nestled on the southernmost tip on a peninsula on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The campground has 143 total sites with 26 full hookups and 33 with electric. There are also 6 cabins available.



We checked in on a Thursday afternoon for a 2 night stay. They stay open until 10p on FRI and SAT and you can’t check-in and get in after closing.



We stayed at site 97 on the B Loop. It was a long driveway and a fairly even pad with a picnic table and a fire ring. We found that the B Loop had the most scenic sites that are right on the water. We had a fabulous view of the water. After visiting the wooded sites, I also found this loop to have less problems with mosquitoes (not that it doesn’t) but there’s better air flow. The mosquitoes are huge and can be ferocious.

We did have a scare with water encroaching our site causing us to move our tow vehicle closer to the loop road. We were told by the rangers that it’s high-tide and would subside around 11pm. Well 11pm came around and it did clear up. By morning, all the water was gone.

Camp host was non-existent if there was one. We had other campers that partied and blasted their music thru 2am. Luckily the next night we had rain and kept them quiet.

There are dump stations and potable water was available.

Overall, we had a great time at this campground with tons of activities and great seafood nearby if you don’t feel like cooking.
