Site was very large and private, surrounded by beautiful forest. Plenty of room for our pup, TV, pop-up gazebo, and gear. We were right in front of the bath house, which was convenient, but the light was pretty bright at night. We were also the closest site to the loop entrance, so we could hear some traffic along the main park road. Didn't bother us too much, but I imagine it would have been pretty noisy if we'd been there during peak summer season. Camping loop overall was nice and quiet, though; we had two neighbors while we were there, and barely saw nor heard anything from either of them.
This park is absolutely gorgeous. Easily the most beautiful MD State Park we've visited. Everything, from the forest, to trails, to lake, to Meadow Mountain, is a camper/outdoor enthusiast's dream. The fall foliage made everything even more beautiful. Apparently, the park is very popular amongst cross-country skiers in the winter, especially since they have full-service cabins and a warming hut by the lake. I'm not into cold weather at all, but I imagine I would love to spend a day by the lake in the summer time. Said lake area also has a concession stand, boat rentals, swimming beach, rec hall, and nature center, but these were all closed since we were there out of season.
Bath house in our loop was old and small, but kept very clean. I never used the shower, as it was too cold, but it looked adequate. LOTS of spiders, which don't really bother me, but definitely a nightmare for arachnophobes. We drove through the two other, non-pet-friendly loops, which were also beautiful. Sites were spacious and private, just like in our loop, but with the addition of tall pines. Saw mostly tent campers, and a few small TTs. - Jenventola

Staff here is wonderful, and the setting is beautiful. The sites are private and large, but the actual usable space is rather small when you have a travel trailer. I guess these are fairly old sites. Very good discovery center and great places to explore in nearby towns. The only reason I would not give this park a higher rating is that the shower house is really in need of a good cleaning. The walls and the floors need regular power washing. - sheegs

We just returned from a camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend 2016. The location of the park is very good - close to the lake with a sandy beach. The problem with the park is for some reason a ton of trees have been cut down and are laying everywhere. It looks like a state of destruction as you are camping with piles of downed trees and branches everywhere. We were in John Garrett loop. It gave us a very bad feeling like we were survivors after a catastrophic event. The lower Meshach Browning loop was also not great because the campsites were very, very close together. We cancelled a later reservation that we had because of these problems. - Casey10

Quiet, surrounded by beautiful nature. Very economically priced. Staff was friendly. Down side - electric hookups are only on limited number of sites. Lots of tents. Bathrooms are clean but dark. Wish there were a dish washing stations at the bathrooms. State park beach is nice size and not overly crowded. Lots of hiking trails. Campfire rings and attached grills at every site. We enjoyed our week long stay despite losing power for several days because of a bad storm. Surrounding area full of things to do and see. - Beth B

We wanted to stay somewhere that was close to a couple of attractions we wanted to visit. A google maps search revealed Bumble Bee. What a gem!! When we arrived, one of the staff was there to guide us to our spot and offer any assistance with set up. The campground was beautiful. Quiet, wooded and immaculately kept. Also, the little details set this campground apart, such as landscapes between each site. - Road Kandy

This campground is a gem hidden in the woods. Where else does the owner meet you at the entrance and give you the choice of several sites, shady back-ins or sunny pull-throughs? Where else does the owner help you back in and offer his assistance connecting to the utilities? Where else does the owner tell you to stop at the office after you are settled in and then take care of the paperwork? All here at Bumble Bee. I also rate CG's by the "sleepability" and this one gets a 10 in that category. No road noise, no Interstates, no trains, no airplanes taking off and landing at night...just peace and quiet. There is a county airport just down the road, but in the time we were here I only heard one plane flying overhead. We were not close enough to hear the take-off's and landings, if there were any. Although I didn't use the rest rooms or showers, I did check them out and they were immaculate. They were clean, they were bright, and they smelled fresh. And the 10 or so seasonal rigs that were here were all clean and well-taken care of; none of those junky campers that hadn't been washed or used in years. Plus, no junk lying around, no abandoned vehicles, and no trash. Every site in the CG was clean and manicured. The owner was going to cut the grass on our first day here, but he held off because he didn't want to disturb us. Thank you! I do have to admit that we were here mid-week so it may be busier on the weekends, but that's one of the perks of being retired. This is not a resort, so don't look for a pool, or a dog park, or a children's playground, or a fully stocked camping store, or a restaurant. But if you want a nice, quiet, well-taken care of campground, this is the place to go. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone! Let's keep this our little secret. - Love To Travel 2

My wife and I stayed at Bumble Bee Campground while at Deep Creek Lake. The camp is about 10 minutes away from the lake. Very clean and quiet (besides the neighbors driving there trucks and 4-wheelers up and down the road they share). The owners are very nice and helpful. The sites were a little small for trailer and truck, but the wildlife was great... birds, chipmunks, deer & turkeys. It is a very small campground, but very nice. Had no problems backing in with a 33' trailer. They do sell firewood, but not many supplies in the camp store. We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. We will stay here again the next time we go to Deep Creek! - M D Hirsch

First time at Milleson's and on the 4th of July weekend. There are lots of lease sites here but the sites around us were very nice people. We stayed riverfront with electric only for 4 nights with 2 other trailers. Bathrooms are old but they try to keep them clean (hard to do on a holiday weekend). The stars were plentiful and the eagle's were soaring overhead. - coper2k

Passport America park with no restrictions on use of discount. Access road is 3 miles of hilly, winding, wooded gravel road that is sometimes one lane wide. Park is part of a working cattle ranch. Interior roads are rough and need work. Not all sites are numbered, but site map is accurate and easy to follow. The park is about 70% permanent trailer/camper sites. Since it is the end of the season, there aren't many people here during the week. We have been here for 10 days because it is quiet and peaceful. Large shade trees, but our site backs up to an open field. Satellite access is not a problem. We have phone with Verizon and are able to get a signal, but sometimes the signal is not perfect. The water has been unreliable - sometimes clear and sometimes brown. We were told it had a high iron content and was chlorinated. We use bottled water, but campground water is okay for showers. Campground has a laundry that needs updating. the regular sized washers and driers are not working but there is a commercial sized washer and dryer that worked well. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed our stay here. - cherlark

This is our third season camping at Milleson's and we love it. We have a season lease and we try to come every weekend. The management and staff are very helpful and friendly. There are many activities planned for the children. If I were to suggest anything, it would be to schedule a few activities for the adults, like music entertainment, karaoke or such. - csummerlin

Small campground, and mostly seasonal, but probably the best choice for the area with a big rig. Sites are not on the large side but will work with a little effort, they let us sit deep in our site which did partially block another site but here early in the week and not crowded. Staff nice and very friendly but would return when the sunflowers bloom for the wife to see. - DBLR

Park is in great setting in valley that overlooks lake. Mostly for seasonal RVs but has separate section with 12 sites for overnight/short term RVs. Very well maintained and owners are super people. We were in need of repairs and owners went well above the call of duty to help us finds parts and repair our rig. - jctbob55

We used the Golden Age pass to get 1/2 price camping Sunday - Thur. We stopped at the main gate to check in, but since it was off season there were no rangers on duty, but they did have a sign in sheet with a confirmation of our reservation. Even though no rangers were on regular duty, they did patrol the campground numerous times throughout the day. We booked site 23 in the Ash loop which is the only electric loop. The site backed into the wooded area, very roomy and very private with a nice path to the restroom and shower facilities. There was plenty of room in the pad area for our 15' teardrop and a 12 x 12 pop up canopy with additional seating around. The site was pretty level, only needed a thin strip of wood to level up under one side. Electric worked great, and the water spigot is very close if you need to get more water. The campground was not busy, mainly there were a lot of overnight campers. We had a regular family of 10 wild turkeys visiting our campsite and the neighboring sites throughout the park every morning and evening. Restrooms and showers were cleaned daily and were in good working order. We did walk around the campground and again scouted out different sites to stay in the future. We picked out site #14 for a future stay which is heavily wooded, backed into the woods and very roomy. The driveway is one of the few that are paved. The fire ring is outside of the camping pad which will give you even more room around your camping unit. See my comments October 2017 for additional reviews of the park and surrounding area. Looking forward to staying at Rocky Gap again, as I mention again that this is my favorite Md State Park. - Teardrop TAB320S owner

We stayed here in a 28' travel trailer at site #A19. This was a very long site with plenty of room for us and well shaded (appreciated during this hot spell). We had verizon service with 4G and 4 bars. There were 5 channels of OTA TV. This site is right next to a water spigot, so if you had a long hose (100') you could fill from the site. All of the sites were spacious with good separation between sites. I think there were only 3 sites (out of 30 in the electric loop - Aspen) that weren't great and even those would be perfectly acceptable. The sites are within walking distance of the lake and the trail that circles it (about 5 miles if you complete the whole loop). There is a golf course and casino on the property for those who enjoy that sort of thing. The restaurants at the casino looked good, but we didn't try them out. The facility is only 8 miles from Cumberland, MD, so plenty of places to pick up things you may have forgotten and places to eat. This has been our favorite campground this year and we will try to make it back one more time before winter. - Capt Gerry

Sites were well spaced. Our site was on the outside loop which had lots of trees and low brush between most sites. A lot of the sites on the inside of the loop went back further into the trees and were very private, not at all visible to the bath house, which will be my choice on my next visit. The drive thru sites 11 and 13 were excellent. This is the only electric loop, which also allows pets, but I noticed a lot of owners did not follow the rules of pets on a leash at all times. Lots of wooded paths leading to the bath house from the inside sites. We could hear road noise, because our site was backed up to the woods and main entrance for incoming and outgoing vehicles to the camping loops, but the noise was not that bad. Rocky Gap seems to be more wooded than a lot of the other Md State Parks. Rocky Gap is a nice state park, rangers patrol on a regular basis. We will be going again next year. - Teardrop TAB320S owner

A great small town campground by the river. Nice beach area for sitting in a chair (it is stones, not sand), having little ones play in the water (you need shoes, it's river rocks), GREAT water for kayaking. You can also tube down the river if you wish. You can fish with a WV fishing license (purchase online). They have ice and ice cream for purchase at the office. A play area for kids (unshaded), basketball court, horseshoes. They have a pavilion with Wifi, we had wifi service (light) at our campsite. The bathhouse is decent, it is older but very very clean (cleaned twice a day, and done thoroughly). They also have a soda vending machine at the bathhouse. They have great riverfront lots (tents only), w/e and w/e/s hookups for campers (or tents if you want). My one complaint, they added sewer to several rows of sites, those sites are so sporadic and tight compared to many others. The odd number sites 53-95 are new to have sewer. However, the sewer hookups are in the MIDDLE of many of the lots. One spot had a random sewer hookup with no water or electric hookup?? They are MUCH tighter than the w/e sites (even number 52-94). The sites 0-24 are full hookup much better placed sewer hookup (next to the water and electric) but are much smaller than the even numbered w/e sites. So, think about what is most important to you when you are reserving. They have a free boat ramp, many other free boat ramps to drop off nearby. 3 dump stations. Fire pits and picnic tables at most sites. Well trimmed mature trees. Smooth gravel roads. Pet friendly but, they have signs many places indicating "no pit bulls". A great value for a weekend in the "country". Please note: They only accept check or cash, NO DEBIT OR CREDIT. - WVSunshine

This would be an ideal campground EXCEPT for the risk posed by an avoidable hazard. They know bears (plural) get into their dumpsters, but make no effort to enclose or lock them, and don't warn campers to avoid those areas at night. In fact, she chuckled and responded nonchalantly when told about our encounter. Other than that, it's a lovely, quiet campground with clean facilities, nice gravel roads and pads, and spacious sites. Just keep your kids and pets inside after dusk. And feel sorry for the bears, which will probably have to be destroyed after they become too habituated or, heaven forbid, hurt someone.
Follow directions on website, because GPS may lead you to Rice Rd. which is completely inappropriate for RVs. - Keeping up with the Joneses

We stay here every year for a family reunion. It's secluded but close enough to Rocky Cap Casino and the city of Cumberland, MD. New owners have taken over this year and we already noticed improvements as soon as we drove in. They are campers themselves and are living onsite. I am looking forward to our next visit to see the changes. - jltreadwell
