Clean park, excellent facilities. The hookups were really nice, with exception that the sewer was about 8 inches off the ground, which made downward flow impossible, even with our hose support. The base has check-in down to a science, with a combo to unlock your utilities. Plan ahead--washing clothes requires a laundry card. You have to go to MWR to purchase a card (which they round to the nearest dollar, so you lose .50 depending on the number of loads you want). You then turn in your card before you leave, or incur a fee. Sites are nice and level. We had deer walk through our site a couple of times. Nice location. We would stay here again. We camped at Aberdeen Proving Ground Campgrounds (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Shore Park Campground. New RV park on APG. Park appears less than 1 year old. All sites (about 30) have Water, Sewer and 20/30/50AMP electric service. Walking distance to small fishing area down a small hill. Pad site is level concrete. Interior roads at campground are asphalt, and easy to navigate. Road was a one-way road, but park was not crowded, so it wasn't a problem. We camped at Aberdeen Proving Ground Campgrounds (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Plan to arrive before MWR office closes (4PM M-F; Sat/Sun ??) You will need a code to unlock the water/sewer and electric boxes. No online reservations, either call 410-278-4124 for reservations, or email per APG website.

This review is for the new Shore Park Travel Camp that opened in June 2016.

There are 24 back-in sites and 5 cabins (cabins are not open at this time) on the campground site. Some sites will only accommodate RV's up to 30'. Most sites look fairly easy to get level on, but there are a few that a big rig might find difficult. The layout is a little "hinky" - depending on which site you have you could be backing in on your "bad/blind" side.

Right now it is pretty exposed but a large number of trees have been planted between and behind sites. Frankly, there may be some issues in the future with the placement of these. Even with the current openness we were not able to get a signal for our satellite at all due to the large trees on one side of the park. FYI - we use a tripod mounted dish that allows us to pretty much place it wherever. There was another Class A that pulled in on our side and soon moved to another site because they couldn't get a signal with their roof-mounted dish. They do not want ANYTHING placed on the grass areas without written permission.

Since everything is brand new and there haven't been a number of people there, the bathhouse is in excellent condition with the exception of some bad starters on the lights. Didn't use the laundry but 2 washers and 2 dryers may not make it going forward.

Sites are all concrete and the road is blacktop helping to keep things cleaner. The sewer connection is raised about 9" off the ground. No cable or wifi. We did not have an issue with service on either our Verizon Jetpack or T-Mobile phone hotspot.

Pet owners: APG is an active testing base so you do hear the blasting/gunfire - usually in the mornings. Not deafening but it can shake your rig if the gun is big enough. We camped at Aberdeen Proving Ground Campgrounds (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

APG is not a huge active duty military base (mostly civilian/contractor). The PX is very small but good for basics. Commissary is as good as any chain grocery store. Class VI is in the shoppette and is adequate. Fitness center is great. Gets pretty quiet after 5pm.

We stayed at the small 11 site RV park located where the mobile home park used to be. They are just now opening a new campground on APG with 25 RV sites and also rental cabins. Closest place to stay near grandkids. Price is good for the area. Difficult to get through on the phone to make reservations. Also reservations must be paid in full at the time of the reservation. We were able to get our roof mounted sat dish to come in by staying nearer to the front of the site. Still had room to park our minivan in front of the motor home. We camped at Aberdeen Proving Ground Campgrounds (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Newly added RV park on the military base. All sites were level concrete pads with picnic tables and fire rings to BBQ or have a fire. Very Big rig friendly. Quiet. Accepts reservations. Must make reservations through MWR, which is not near campground. Must arrive before MWR closes so you can get key to unlock your electic and water. MWR office is on Swan Creek Rd, just past the police station on Aberdeen St. Be aware you will need to use the 715 gate as the main gate off Rt. 40 is only open 0500 to 1900 Mon-Fri. Campground is off Patriot Way where the former mobile home park on post used to be. Watch for deer as they wander all times of day and night.
