It is a nice drive to campground and the staff was very friendly. Check in was very fast. The bathroom is clean. The campground as a whole is very clean. The sites were big . It is an all around nice campground atmosphere. The only downfalls were no tv hook up, and the pool closes to early. I'd still love to stay here again. - Delaware camper

This campground caters to its seasonal sites. Not very many over night sites available. If you get a site on the river the view is amazing. Stayed here because it's local to family activities. Didn't notice any planned family activities. Restrooms are outdated but for the most part clean. Definitely caters to seasonal sites and not the traveling camper. I would not recommend this campground unless you need a place to lay your head for local activities. - mdbowhunter

This place needs a lot of work. Seasonals are in poor shape and overnight sites are very close together. - custras

Elevated views of the Chesapeake Bay and well-manicured sites highlight this campground just south of Rock Hall, MD. Ample, large sites for tents overlook the shore looking west, affording awesome sunsets; however, the 20- to 30-foot-high position above the Bay means no swimming or fishing from the shore. Most of the campground's sites are reserved for long-term campers. Most of the sites are narrow and well-shaded; the inner rows surround a grassy area with a playground, pond and volleyball court. No sewer or pump-out service. An ample number of dump stations exist; all are well-maintained. No planned activities for children or families. Place was pretty quiet by 11 each night. We would stay again. - Lancaster Camper

One of the most well maintained and beautiful parks we have stayed in. The showers could use some updating and they are a little on the small side but very doable. The owners & staff were very friendly and our visit could not have been any better. We would come here again anytime. - JOHN DEAS

This is a beautiful "resort" style park. The grounds are well landscaped and I don't blame them for not allowing parking or mats on the grass. The price is not high. This campground was full, and was turning away reservations, they must be doing something right. The wifi was strong in my site, the local antenna was incredible, you can pick-up Washington and Baltimore stations so no real need for cable. I have been here three times and have noticed that this campground has improved every time, and I am looking forward to my next visit. - Maryland Traveler

We had a waterfront site reserved for a week & stayed only one night. The first morning, we woke up to a flooded site, water lapping up on rv tires. We had to get the park owner to unplug our electricity because of 10" of water. They refunded our money. Apparently this is something they are used to. Didn't even apologize. - RV_Jim

We booked this site because of the sites on the water. Our site was well located for view of the Bush River. Unfortunately, there was high water when we were there that actually inundated our fire pit and made access to our car difficult because of the water. We had neighboring sites that people stepped out of their RV into inches of water. The day we got there, they had a high water event that left debris all over the sites and roadways; No-one from the park staff made any effort to clean up the mess. This an older family run park that is in real need of some TLC. - RPFawcett

This is an older park with a lot of full timers. There are a lot of flies that drive you crazy. It is a nice walk around the CG especially near the water edge. The park was clean. To reach the park, you must drive through a neighborhood with low hanging branches. Lots of scrapes and scratches. - Michael47

We were quite disappointed with this state park as our experience does not mesh well with other reviewers' comments. Signage is not good upon entering the park; we had to call the office to find out where to go. I had checked the sites online to find one that was large enough (our RV is only 31' so not huge) but we found most of the sites to be quite small. Our RV just fit in the spot and it was not very level. The whole park seems to be farmland that was converted into a campground - so it is pretty open. It did not seem that there was much to do in terms of trails or biking, but we did not stay long enough to fully investigate. The worst part was there was a horrid stench in the park. We called to complain and found out that chicken manure had just been spread all over the farmland because its "that time of year". It was incredibly bad - so bad, it burned your throat. We couldn't stay and the good thing is, they did refund our money. I would not stay here again even if it wasn't "chicken manure" season. - Cape Cod kayaker

The RV loop of this campground is heavily wooded, offering dense shade. However, the internal roads and sites are wide and easy to navigate, and there is excellent spacing between sites. The roads are paved, and the sites are level packed gravel. There is one bathroom/shower facility building serving the whole loop, which was not a problem in early October when there were few others staying there, but could get crowded in peak season. They were of average cleanliness, but the hot water supply was good. You can fill tank with fresh water at the well-positioned dump station upon entry, but it could use better signage to alert you to it. There is only 1 lane through it, so again, could get crowded in busy season. The camp store is minimally stocked, and in Fall is only open Fri-Sat-Sun. Firewood is for sale next to store on an honor system. There is no WiFi, but Verizon coverage is good. The state park has a nice frisbee golf course, and nice mixed use hiking/mountain biking trails, as well as a separate boating area on small lake. Site 32 was plenty big enough for both 33 foot RV and truck to park unhooked. Would definitely stay again, especially in off-season, when you can have place to yourself. - We Roamed and Rambled

Pleased with site 29 for 25 ft motorhome - shaded, level, electric, good separation with adjacent sites. Sites 23, 25, 27 are similar to 29. Water faucet directly across campground road from 29. Sanitary dump available at campground exit. Entrance to campsite has a small store now. Bathhouse has ADA shower and toilet and was clean. Campgrounds separated from lake activities by a 3/4 mile one way walk. Advise driving to lake. Detailed trail map was only downloadable using a smart phone that can scan QR codes and has internet service. My Google Fi internet service was spotty, so downloading trail maps did not meet my needs. - Curious One

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. - RVerFamily

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. - usamacdonald2

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. - hdchickinfl

This is not an RV park. Instead, it is a mobile home park that happens to have three long-term RV sites nearby. Sites rent only on a monthly basis at $795/mo, including all utilities except cable and phone. You get a regular street address and USPS mailbox at the street. The sites are very bare bones, with gravel pads that are pretty level, picnic tables at two of the sites but no patios, full-hookups, and grass is mowed religiously by on-site caretaker who lives just two doors down and is a bit nosy. The sites sit right on Bull Neck Creek. This is a blessing and a curse. Great views of the water, fishing, and lots of waterfowl, but the area is prone to flooding, and the sites get boggy fast. We often find ourselves stepping out our door and into a puddle after a big rain. In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, or unusually high tides you will have to evacuate. The driveway into the sites is not paved so gets rutty and muddy in snow and rain. If you aren't careful, your vehicle and rig can get stuck very easily. Septic tanks sometime back up, but maintained man will pump them for you. Electric, water, and cable supplies reliable. Very quiet park and neighborhood. We've been here nearly a year and have never seen a police car or ambulance in the area. We've also had no neighbors in the other two sites during that time. The mobile home park sits right between two county parks with fishing and boat ramps, so recreation is readily available. Property manager (who is located off site) is very friendly and helpful and will work to accommodate your needs. Pets are allowed ONLY on the RV sites, not in the mobile home park or in the stick-built homes nearby. Large, open field nearby where you can walk your pets. You are responsible for taking your garbage to the curb once a week and supplying your own garbage can. Raccoons and stray cats in the area, so you don't want to sit your trash out unprotected. Sites are about a block away from railroad tracks, and trains do come through in the wee hours. High tension power immediately adjacent to the sites. This said, these are the ONLY RV sites near Baltimore that allow pets, have full hookups, cable access, AND allow long-term residents. Lots of mobile home parks in the area do allow RVers, but most won't allow pets. If you plan to winter over in this park, know that you'll get to shovel the 100 feet or so to the street in the event of a blizzard (we had three this last winter). The county does plow the streets, and there is some car parking about a block up, so you can park your car or truck there in the event of snow. Carpenter ants are a problem here, and they will eat the wood in your RV, so be careful. We haven't yet found a good remedy for them except keeping the tree branches over our rig trimmed back. Mosquitoes are also fierce because of the nearby creek. I'd give the park a higher rating if the sites and driveway were paved, if the drainage were better, and if the monthly rate was a bit lower, but I suppose this is the cost of living right on a tributary of the Chesapeake and only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. - Mary Jo

Very nice quiet CG. Sites were in a forested area with paved roads and driveways but gravel pads and patio areas. Branches were low and hanging in many areas and needed to be pruned. Roads were narrow with ruts along the sites entry and exit points and should be more tapered where they meet the roads. Some deep ruts in curves where longer RVs could not stay on the path. This is a beautiful CG best suited for smaller RVs. We camped in a 39' fifthwheel. - RoadEyePie

We camped here in our 30' travel trailer. Site 26 was excellent with plenty of room and privacy. The recent rains had left a little mud, but nothing we couldn't work around. There are many excellent sites here and all are full service. Our site was at the bottom of the hill, so if rains are forecast, you might want to stick with the lower number sites near the top of the hill. The rest rooms were very clean and well kept. We hiked many of the trails and they were well marked and in good shape considering the amount of rainfall we had while we were there. The rangers were very helpful and frequently patrolled the area. The hike out to the Turkey Point Lighthouse was easy and offered great views of the upper Chesapeake Bay. The nearby town of Northeast is a fun little town and offers all you would need to provision and dine. Cell phone coverage with Verizon was limited, but satisfactory with our WeBoost amplifier. OTA TV had a few local channels. We would definitely return here. - Capt Gerry

The park appeared to be well managed. Grass had been cut the afternoon of our arrival. It was very hot the 1st day so the shade and breeze were a welcome relief. Front gate attendant was courteous and helpful. He was the only staff that we encountered. The map that we were given was easy to follow. Unfortunately, swimming was prohibited because of debris and filth in the water from when Conowingo Dam opened. There are many sites that were vacant so our stay was quiet and serene. Our site, #18 was the perfect set-up since we had our 3 grand kids with us ages 12, 10 and 8. There was a wide open space behind where the boys could toss a ball around or play hide-and-seek. There was also a playground right there which consisted of swings, a slide, and a climbing apparatus. Power pedestal was in good working order. Only sites in the North East Loop provide all three services - electric, sewage, and water. - Goldilocks39

This is a unique facility. The four sites are narrow, gravel, and fairly level. There is only electric (two with 30 amp and two with 50 amp service) and cable, no water or sewer. All this being said, it worked for us. RVs with slides on both sides would find the sites very tight. There was very good lighting. The members of the Lodge were extremely nice, and we were invited to dine with them. For $14 we had a wonderful meal, and were able to have wine for less than $3/glass. You need to time your arrival and departure carefully, because when Lodge members arrive, the parking lot is small, and cars will block egress to the sites. We would definitely return if in the area. If all sites were in use, it could get claustrophobic. - EdGuru

Prices have changed since previous review - 2015 new costs are $20 Elk member, $35 non. This is for electric only - or you can refill water by pulling up to front of building during times the place is closed. Closest dump is 10 miles away and is cost to sewer plant.
Other reviewer was right, get there early in the day to get your rig parked (4 sites, all back ins and the folks coming to the bar or meetings park on empty sites. Sites are really close - if you have opposing slides, you'll be inches to the next rig. And the landscaping between sites makes walking to the paved area difficult - and if it rains, it gets muddy quickly. Electric posts are at front edge of site, bring an extension cord if you plug in from the rear of your unit. Sites are right next to an outdoor bar and the horseshoe pits. They also hold turkey shoots on weekends so it gets rather noisy.
The plus to this location is proximity to Annapolis, just on the eastern side of the Bay Bridge. They have some picnic tables and a big fire ring near one site that's supposedly open to all campers. - yesmar

One of the nicer Elks Lodges - even open to non-members. Prices: $15 if member of this lodge, $20 if member of other Elks Lodge, $25 if non-member. Very nice people at lodge. There are 4 sites - 2 with 30-amp, 2 with 50-amp. Fresh water available at front of lodge to fill tanks. Sites are narrow, but plenty deep for the biggest of rigs. Try to come before 3pm when bar opens - if not, the lot may be difficult to maneuver to fill water and/or back into sites. We would stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

Since my last visit the campground has become populated with permanent party personnel, making reservations difficult. Effectively half of the sites are occupied by long term occupants. It has become more of a housing area, rather than a FAMCAMP. - hw8200

I would expect that a campground associated with the US Naval Academy would be more up to date. This campground needs an upgrade to bring to the standard you find at USMA and USAFA. - hw8200

The campground is not in the Academy section of the Navy base. That makes it hard to find and difficult to get to. One has to drive through a residential area on a curvy road where there is a lack of signs pointing to the campground. That is one issue that makes it not big rig friendly. Another reason is that the interior campground road is gravel and hilly with some sharp turns. Most of the sites are concrete pads, but they are not long enough to provide plenty of space for a longer RV. I noticed just one pull through. Power is only 30 amp. There is no sewer. I did not use the dump station. The bath house is an older, heated, cinderblock building. It was clean, but adequate only to serve its purpose. The Wi-Fi signal is not generated from within the campground and is weak. There is nothing for the kids to do. A primitive area exists for tent use, but sites aren’t marked. Verizon 3G was fine. During another season, I suspect there would be little satellite signal reception because there a lot of trees. Over the air TV channels are plentiful. The campground is half full of permanents; most likely service members who are stationed there. It is a short drive to the full service commissary, Exchange, gas station, and golf course. Check in is at the MWR/gym facility that is several blocks past the campground. There are no convenient places to park an RV while you register. They honor the America the Beautiful card for a 50% discount and that is reflected in my rate. This is just an OK campground that is better suited for shorter rigs and those who want an inexpensive place to stage from while being a tourist. It won’t be on my return list. - RLM
