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

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

Just got back from a very disappointing weekend at Yogi Bear. We have been camping at this campground for over 25 years. I think the place has great amenities and the new owner has done a great job updating the place. That being said, maybe it is getting too big. We had trouble with the sites behind us. They played rap until after 2 am this morning. I finally had to call the emergency number only to have them call back and they had misunderstood what the issue was. I am not sure why no one spoke to them before I called or why they were aloud to play such vulgar lyrics all evening but between that and all the drinking at the pool I would no longer call this a family resort. We really did not get a good explanation or any satisfaction when we went to management. We are booked again in the fall but may have to reconsider. - LTCampers

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

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

Beautiful park, and great layout for peace and privacy. Not great for meeting your neighbors though, as the sites face away from the road. You end up camping behind your trailer. Still very nice. Very spotty cell phone coverage. We had to walk to the store to get any T Mobile service, none in the site. A little buggy, but not excessive. Some sites may be difficult for larger trailers to get into. - Kevco

Very well kept state park. Site #106 a bit tight for my 25' trailer but fit. Choptank Loop more well suited for tenters. Rainy weekend so hiking was limited to loop walks. - Doneitall

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

Rude lady at check in, $5.00 charge for 1 hour early check in at 2p, not told that water pressure is excessive which caused a leak in our water system and a trip to have this repaired. Close sites. Site was just long enough for motorhome but the hookups were 30-40 feet away. The park, not the campground, is quite nice. - User3020

We stayed at Muddy Run for a weekend. It is close to the Buck in Lancaster County. It is easily accessible from Route 372. The roads within the park are tight and windy. Most sites are not level. At all. The sites are tight and difficult to back into. Many sites are very short. The water and electric connections are shared with other sites. You need extension cords to access connections. There are no sewer connections and no honeywagon service. The only options for emptying tanks are to have a portable container, to call a local service for $30, or to hook up and go to the dump station. We didn't understand why people would stay there for more than a few days. The bathrooms were not clean. You will get charged if you park your car in a neighboring site, even if the campground is empty. There is a large lake but swimming is prohibited. There is no pool. There was a nice nature trail. There is a restaurant on site where we had breakfast, which wasn't bad. - Lori and Larry

The park is very spacious, with a large lake. Sites with electric & water are limited, so call ahead to see what is available. we stayed in site 57, but also like 120. ask how far connections are, they could be 60 to 70 ft. away because they are located to service a couple site. Other than that this a very nice park. Large grocery store about 10 min. away. About 30 min. to Lancaster. - vince/chestertown

We stayed at White Oak for our first trip in our camper. We have a 38' travel trailer, and had no problem getting in, and out. We had a nice pull through site. It was fairly level side to side, buy was sloped pretty slightly front to back. The sites were gravel. It rained pretty good on the day of arrival, but no problems. (one advantage to the sight being sloped I guess). The sites were well shaded. Very clean campground, and restrooms. Very nice, and friendly staff. Well stocked store. Very nice pool. There is a auction house next store with a snack bar with great food. An Amish girl comes on Saturday with fresh baked goods. Close to nearby attractions. Don't hesitate to stay here, as it's very nice, and we will come back. - AndyK

Positives about White Oak Campground: 1) Secluded location off main roadways with little traffic noise. 2) Shaded sites with many large trees. 3) Nice pool area. Negatives about White Oak Campground 1) Sites are way out of level with poorly graded approaches. We bottomed out our trailer just trying to drive into the pull through site. 2) Site utilities poorly laid out. Sewer connection was close, water spigot was at the far front of the space, electric was on the opposite side of the space. 3) Campground is cramped and crowded with lots of seasonals. We spent two nights at this campground, and it was average at best. While reasonably close to Lancaster, it is not a place we would choose to stay again. If the owners made the investment to level the sites and improve the approaches; this would be a much better place to stay. At $59 a night it is way overpriced. - Aircats

This is a nice clean campground with friendly staff. Clean pool, newly remodeled bathrooms. Great views. Plenty to do nearby, an auction house next door and a farm down the road sells produce and baked goodies. - Labomb

Rate reflects monthly stay. The nightly rate for shorter stays is more. This is a nice campground in Lancaster County. Many of the sites are spacious and level. Sites in the wooded areas are smaller and more difficult to back into. The wifi worked well as did Verizon service. There is no cable TV but many channels come in using the antenna. The staff here are among the friendliest of any campground we've stayed at. There are multiple trails on the campground to walk, and there are two great parks within 2 miles. There are a lot of campers parked here full time with people staying here during the winter months. We were parked up on the hill which can get quite windy and cold. There are other campgrounds in the area that we've stayed at and Tucquan Park was by far our favorite in the Holtwood area. - Lori and Larry

First off no matter what way you go in there are some nasty hills getting into this place. Getting into their driveway off the road damaged the trailer, your coming down a hill, have to go through a dip then up their driveway. The road and driveway are scarred from all the dragging trailers. Terrible design. The driveway is well pruned once you get into it. Staff were friendly. We had a pull through site which was small. They claim WIFI, my phone found it once but couldn't get on. The "new" bathhouses were disgusting. No dumpsters for recycling. Lots of seasonals and they all looked to be pretty well maintained. Managed to get out of the driveway without any additional damage and won't be going back. - ferguson65

I camp at this park frequently and I disagree with the earlier reviews. The owners of the park are very accommodating, and this park is very family oriented. My children enjoy this park and there are many things for my children to do. the The people are friendly, restrooms are clean, park is clean. I disagree with the run down trailer park statement, camping is about being close to nature, and having a good time with friends and family, not about how something looks. If you are a true camper it doesn't matter whether you camp in a tent or a luxury motorhome, it is about family and this campground is just that! If you want luxury parks with all the bells and whistles, then maybe you should seek out the local Hilton Hotel! You will not be disappointed! - Trailblazrtracey

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

The sites in the campground are somewhat tight together. And there is not a lot of room for fire rings or kids to play. He site needs to have some maintenance overall with the grounds, the parking areas, and the roadways are very broken up. At one time I think the campground was very nice but you can tell that it has fallen into disrepair over the last several years as they have not put any money into maintaining the grounds or the utilities at the campground. The pool area appeared to be nice but we did not use it . There are several private residences in the middle of the campground which is somewhat odd and generates a lot of coming and going traffic. Do not follow GPS directions to the campground or it will take you on some dead and residential roads that do not connect to the campground I recommend looking at aerial photos of Google maps before you navigate to the campground. The road way back to the campground is very tight through residential neighborhood. The campground staff in the office was very nice and helpful. - Lspajm

Nice location. Nice big spaceous spots. Spots are on a hillside in the woods, which is nice. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because the water was temporarily run from a hose from another site, and the 50 amp didn't work. Owner's are very nice, and will go out of their way to help you, and make things right if a problem arises. The packet of area attractions they give you on arrival is amazing, and thick. This place has a lot of long term campers. The campers are very nice, just the majority of spots are long term. The downside is the campground is in need of renovation. It is clean, and has a lot of potential just needs some sprucing up. The roads have plenty of room, but be for warned this place is on the side of a hill. I had to put my truck in 4x4 to back into one spot. Owner will help spot you if needed. All in all they are making upgrades, and it is nice, and quiet family owned campground! - AndyK

Where should I start? Amish country is beautiful and very tourist friendly. This park has zero activities so it's purely a sleep site. If you have to run A/C in your camper then nothing else can be on because my AMP reader barely read 25AMPs on the input. Must use water pressure regulator because it fluctuates severely. Great wooded area with plenty of shade. If fixed up it would be a great place to drop anchor for a vacation. Short distance from a ton of great shops. - Derrick4

Nice family owners, friendly & helpful. Sites are in side of mountain, winds up, nice size private sites stone covered & level. Our favorite campground in Amish area......perfect place for a getaway. Wifi, tv, workers are helpful & friendly if needed. Highly recommend. - Cbh
