The site is mostly park homes and permanent trailers. Some of the sites are nice but many are incredibly trashy. I wouldn't call it a resort, it's just a camp ground. There is no laundry facility and they don't allow washing machines to be used. There is no Wi-Fi, no cable, no satellite reception. The campground web site says there is a camp store, however there isn't anything to it. We planed to stay long term but have decided differently after one month. Electric is metered for long term campers, however the rate they charge per KW is double of what the average is for the area. The price is way too high for what you get. We will not be staying again and wouldn't recommend the campground. - DWB

A lot of full timers, friendly staff, men's room clean and recently painted, many off season construction projects going on, my site was within a traffic circle and I only had 20 or 50A service available. - User3064

This is not a resort. Rather, a campground with 90% permanent residents. There are 2 sites in the campground with reasonably level gravel and FHU 30/50 amp service. We had to move to the 'overflow' on uneven grass with 30 amp and water only mid stay. Had to use leveling pads on one side of the coach get level. If this wasn't the closest to an event we were attending in New Castle, DE, we would have made other arrangements. There is a pool which we closed for the season. The price is way too high and we won't stay here again. - 2sunkid

Just spent two days at this park. We had just purchased our fifth wheel and needed a place to try out all the systems. This park is beautiful. All RV sites are FHU, unusual for a state park. We made on line reservations and also checked in on line. Glad I did that as there was no one at the check in kiosk when we arrived. The park is well laid out and no confusion getting to our site. Interior roads are roomy and asphalt so no dust. Sites are clearly marked and our site was tagged with our name and a tag for our truck. Sites are asphalt for the rv and additional space on back and one side is sand and fine gravel and very level. Sewer connection, water, and electric (both 30 or 50 amp) easy to reach. Water pressure was a tad low but did not present any problems. All sites are spacious but ours (41) was almost secluded on the right and left. Some sites were more shaded than others. Each site has a very large picnic table and fire pits are far enough away to avoid smoke in your windows. Only one bathhouse for the park but it was central and fairly new. It held 4 handicap rooms with toilet, shower, baby changing station, and sink. There were additional shower stalls, all were private rooms with just changing area and shower stall. All were very clean. On our second day a ranger stopped by to make sure everything was working out for us. We had no complaints. Park has no wifi, not unusual for state parks, but our Verizon service was strong and we used our hot spot to use our computers with no problems. No cable but OTA TV reception was good with many channels available. Many places to walk dogs (on leash only) but lots of fields to explore. There is a trail around the pond but if you drive to the main entrance there are many things to do in that part of the park. You can rent a boat canoe or kayak or fish, visit the nature store and not to forget Go Ape zip line course which I did before this trip. - Trainspotter

Lums Pond is a lovely little campground. When we arrived, our site (#70) was a mud pit on the passenger side of our truck. There was squishy grass all around and more rain was forecast. A gentleman from the site across from us came over to let us know he had been in site #70 before us, but it was too flooded for him to stay in. He wanted to spend one more night and moved across the road. When I booked our reservation online, there was no way to tell from a photo probably taken in summer that this site would turn into a bog with rain. Thankfully, the gentleman encouraged us to move before we hooked up to water and electric. He let us know that sites, I believe #1-4, are "walk-in" sites and not reservable online. He said if they were empty, we could take one. We took our 5th wheel and chose site #2 which ended up being spacious and as dry as could be expected for the rain we received. There was ample room for our 33' 5th wheel and Ford F350 crew cab, long bed pick-up truck. We called the campground host and found out the site was available for the nights we needed. The park itself is very nice with room between sites. We also found friends of ours staying in the park (a nice surprise). One morning, we hiked the Swamp Forest Trail which is beautiful, but pretty wet in spots. We did not use the bathhouse facilities because we're pretty well self-contained. - Travel Bug

Our first camping trip for 2019. We love this SP. Sites are quite large and level. Or too many trees to worry about but enough shade. Very relaxing! - Karen Fredrickson

This is a good place to overnight. There are no utilities. Probably the worst part was we were parked on the north end and a train is right behind the trees there. Next time we will park as far south as we can. We felt very safe as there was security driving around all the time. We visited the casino and was surprised to find it was non-smoking....YEAH!! - jacknpeg

We were looking for a place near Wilmington but couldn't find one. So, we decided to "boondock" at the race track. It was very convenient and the weather cooperated and was cool. They don't mind if you camp in their parking lot, but want you to use the back parking spaces. There were quite a few truckers who overnighted too. I had to put a price, but there is no charge. - har-fl

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

We had stayed here about 10 years ago and when we had to visit Delaware again, we again found that this is the ONLY place to park an RV in Northern Delaware. The price is extremely high because there is no other place to go. Very difficult to get into the park as highway 40 and the Dupont Highway split right in front of the building and there are large traffic walls. We had to go North on the highway, do a huge U-turn in driving rain and rush hour traffic before we could reach the entrance. Also, the name on the sign is different. It's supposed to be Delaware Motel and RV Park but the sign says "Delaware Autocourt-motel and trailer park" Also it says "build to suit" indicating to me that the place is for sale as well. I had trouble calling them for reservations but finally got through. We had a large dumpster next to space one, where they put us but told us "it had just been emptied." One of the big surprises was "the siren". I had read about this in reviews of nearby motels. It seems that the fire department is two doors up and whenever they get a call, even at 12:30 a.m, this enormous civil defense siren starts wailing. I thought it was for a nuclear attack the first time I heard it. It is so loud, its beyond belief, and hard to comprehend that they still do this activity in New Castle, Delaware.
The site we were at had reliable 50 amp service, water, and sewer, and I would have to say, even with the abandoned semi trailers scattered about, the people staying there were very nice to us, didn't bother us, and the maintenance fellow checked us in during a huge rainstorm, and waited out by the site to help us hook up, and he was sopping wet, but took it all in stride. It's just too bad somebody doesn't spend the money to whip the place in shape. They have a nice large area for the RV's, but it seems that there are mostly monthly or semi-permanent residents. There is a motel to the East of the RV park which you drive past to get into the spaces. - elduque

This place was way over priced for what it offered , but it was about the only thing available along our route - there aren't many campgrounds in Delaware. It's along a very noisy road, and the fire department right next door adds to the chaos several times a day. As previously mentioned, this is a place for an overnight stop only. There is a lot of junk sitting around from the hotel, and some rather unsavory-looking folks walked through the park while we were there. Nothing more than a gravel lot behind a motel, but the full hookups worked well with strong 50-amp power and water. We don't plan to return. - LowesTravels

Good place for and overnight stay. When verifying directions with MapQuest use address 259 S. Dupont. And in the Woodalls book it says 50 Ft. where US 40 and US 13 divide, it is really right at the actually divide. There is a Walmart just down the road on the right, you could walk there. But when leaving if you are headed east and want to get on I295, just go down to the WalMart, pull into the parking lot, go out toward Wilton (the street that runs in front of WalMart) turn left onto Wilton, go to the light, cross over US 40/US30, you'll be turning left on to US 40E this will take you back up to I295. - Travelin Jenkins

My first time in a Maryland state park, so I wasn't prepared to decipher the 16 different camping prices, depending on electric/non-electric, state residency, Golden Age membership and the day of the week. Not sure what formula they use that causes most of the rates to end in 74 cents, payable only by cash or check - not the most convenient when the campground office is closed. To the ranger's credit, he did tally the fee box for the night and insisted on bringing me the $0.26 I overpaid. Only eight electric sites on the Acorn Loop, and we were lucky to snag one that wasn't reserved on a weeknight. Bathhouse looked very new and was fantastically clean. Sites are heavily wooded and quiet. Weak Verizon 3G service. - RVNed

Site was very shaded, and probably the most secluded feel of anywhere we've camped. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. One of our bunk ends extended beyond the pad into the woods, which was just fine by me. Nice amount of space in between sites. Short walk to bathouse, through the woods behind us. There were also several, very private, "walk-up" type sites for tents.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was immaculate; by far the cleanest I have ever seen in a campground. Must have been recently renovated. Deer Creek day-use area was nice; had a big playground and a few pavilions. Picnic area was an open field with very little shade, and the amount of goose poop was unreal; like walking through a minefield. For that reason alone, I don't think I would host any events there. There is a little fishing pond there, which my husband and daughter enjoyed. We hiked back to the campground from here, which was a nice easy-to-moderate trail. The beginning was pretty rough for me, since I was wearing my infant son while navigating an uphill trail, but it quickly evened out. There are also plenty of areas to stop along the road in the campground, with access to the creek for wading. The water felt great, but the bottom was rather pebbly. There is a historic area in the park, with a working grist mill, mansion and other little buildings to view. Not really my thing, but was pretty neat. The views of the river are really nice from here. - Jenventola

The sites were large and flat and each had it's own grill. The bathrooms were cleaned several times a day and were always very clean. My kids enjoyed playing on the large play areas and fishing at the pond. Next time we will try the river. We were very happy with the park and the park rangers were extremely helpful. We will be going back. - Cfamily

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

Another Mother's Day trip to Yogi Bear Quarryville, another rainy weekend! Every year we go back to this campsite you can see improvements all over the campground. Site 312 is level and very wide. Verizon cell signal is marginal to spotty. Two sewer connections on site, one towards the back on the site and other towards the front. - SJEAGLES609

Another trip to Quarryville for our group another weekend of rain... Unfortunately we have gotten quite use to camping in the rain at Quarryville. The good news is the area of the campground we choose to stay in drains well. No issues with site other then the cable was a bit snowy on the lower channels. As usual the bathhouse was immaculate and staff was very friendly. - SJEAGLES609

My family and friends stayed at Quarryville Jellystone over the Labor Day holiday and had a fabulous trip. The pool area has plenty of chairs and the kids LOVED the water park. I loved the shaded sites and the bathrooms were super clean. I would only caution you on the JT sites that are downhill from the storm water runoff because we were flooded out during the heavy rainfall and it caused about 6 inches of rock and mud to wash onto my camper rug. - TanyaF

A nice peaceful park for a Halloween weekend to end our season. We enjoyed our stay. The park itself and amenities are very nice and clean. The ride to the park from route 1 is stressful. Route 82 has some low branches. The turn onto Embreeville road is tight, and Embreeville road is narrow and winding with lots of blind turns and questionable branches. I am sure glad my rig is only 12'4" tall. The bridge at the mill is doable if oncoming traffic yields properly......or at all. Personally I think the campground should contact the state about trimming the branches over the road to 14' plus. It's not an unreasonable request to help their business in a time when big (expensive) rigs are very common. Once in the campground the roads are steep, windy, narrow and off camber. Less than 8" bedrail clearance on a 5th wheel could easily result in a crunched truckbed here. It was very nice and relaxing once the trailer was dropped. Great view from the patio sites overlooking the office, activity center and pool. We would return for another quick weekend despite the access challenges. I would never recommend trying to get here in the dark though. - ferguson65

This RV Park would be a 9 if it was sunny out and two hurricanes had not just passed thru the area. It was thriving even though it was very soggy when we were here. There were kids every where dressed up in costume for a planned trick r treat night on Saturday from 6-6:30 pm. It was fun to see so many people out and about talking with each other. The pull thru sites were really long, but not that level, so have plenty of blocks around to help your auto leveling system do its job. The front desk staff were very helpful. - Vipermanden

Nice park, but bad location and even worse roads. The park is located off windy roads with narrow corners and a lot of low hanging branches. Consider other options if traveling with a large RV. The park has great amenities for the kids and family with a very popular pool, putt putt, jumpy, corn hole, etc. Their wifi was decent, which is a major plus. Being a KOA, it has the standard showers, bathrooms and laundry which were all reasonable. The park is a mix of pull through and back in sites that are all gravel, with most having a concrete pad with a table, chairs and firepit. The roads in the park are problematic to navigate with a large RV. See our full reviews and pictures at our blog at thegilliamsisland. - Gary Gilliam

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
