We have been searching for a spot near Cambridge, MD and found this "mom and pop" campground on the internet. They do not have a website but the following web address gives an aerial photograph: http://marinas.com/view/marina/5080_Madison_Bay_Campground_%26_Marina_MD_United_States There are about 8 transient sites which are situated in the right side of the photograph near the marina slips. The remainder of the sites are seasonal. There is no shade and water/electric sites only, but the dump out station is easily accessible and certainly adequate. We did not use the bath houses or laundry so cannot comment. There is an excellent small restaurant and bar on site with local crab and seafood dishes as well as steaks, hamburgers and sandwich items, open for lunch and dinner. Call ahead for a reservation at the campground. When you arrive, go to the R&R Restaurant and one of the very friendly bartenders or wait staff will direct you to a site. This is a simple campground with a nice water view. We were there for the Eagleman half triathlon in nearby Cambridge, enjoyed our visit, and plan to return. - M&M

We stayed on site #19 in Loop B (the electric loop). Our site was large, very level, and surrounded by pine and hardwood trees. All sites in this loop were fairly spread out, with ample tree separation between each one. I don't think there was a bad site in the loop. The loop had a wonderful, heated bath house which was centrally located and a very short walk from our site. It looked to be recently built (or renovated), and was impeccably clean with very nice-looking showers (which we didn't use this time). However, there were only 3 stalls and 2 showers, so I imagine the lines could get pretty long during peak season. There was also a nice outdoor dishwashing sink on the exterior of the bath house. The park itself is rather small, but very pretty and (mostly) peaceful. It's set on the Choptank River and Watts Creek, with a great amphitheatre and walking trails with beautiful water views. There is also a nature center (which was closed for the season), as well as several pavilions and playgrounds scattered throughout the park. The pavilions were in definite need of a facelift, and the playgrounds were older but decent. While the park was very quiet and enjoyable during the day, unfortunately I couldn't say the same for nighttime and early morning. The first night, we were awoken several times by the very loud firehouse siren from the neighboring town of Denton. It sounded like one of those older air raid-type sirens, with a really loud, jarring windup. My husband looked it up the next day, and discovered that Denton does in fact use that old fashioned alarm system to signal any type of emergency. In addition, we heard very loud gunshots from nearby goose hunters right at sunrise. Overall, while this a very pretty park with nicely wooded and spaced-out sites, we prefer the neighboring Tuckahoe SP for its slightly better trails, nicer day-use area with newer playground, and (most importantly) lack of midnight sirens. - Jenventola

We stayed at this park in a 30' Travel Trailer. The site was a little narrow, but very level and plenty long for our truck and trailer. We have stayed here a few times before and enjoy the convenient location. We had good cell phone coverage and OTA TV. Dump station has a fairly tight turn. The park is very close to shopping (Walmart and others about a mile away) and good places to eat in Denton. They have done some recent upgrades to the restrooms and they were very nice. - Capt Gerry

We were at Martinak during the annual Summerfest extravaganza the 3rd weekend in August, so there was a ton of activity in historic downtown Denton. There is only one section of the park (Loop B) that has electric (30 amp). No on-site water or sewer but there are spigots available on the loop to fill fresh water tanks, and there is a dump station. Sites near us were level. Most sites are wooded. Water access to the Choptank River from a convenient boat ramp. Canoe rentals are available at the park. Bath houses were super clean. The rate shown is for a senior Maryland park discount Sunday-Thursday. Weekend rate is 25.00. - Tin Can Twosome

Absolutely the worst camping experience in over ten years of camping. Facilities are old, run-down and just plain nasty. The nice view of the Bay was about the only positive on my visit. The "last straw" was the owner burning a huge pile of garbage a short distance from my campsite. - WNThee

Great location on the Bay. Good store,game room, laundry, clean bathrooms, nice boat launch, slips - all about fishing. Many seasonal sites,allowing additions (porches). Transient sites are back ins, 30 amp with great view and bay breeze. Propane refill, marine gas. Off season when I was there, but entry road pot holes were being filled, and hurricane/storm erosion was being addressed. Great owners/staff. - PattieAM

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

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

The 17 site daily campground is basically a sandy field alongside the beach. The sites 20-25 feet wide are separated by electric pedestals. Some sites have trees along side the beach so those sites get some shade. Tables and fire rings are also lined up along the beach. Sites are slightly messy. No big debris but lots of cigarette butts, bits of paper and plastic, plastic bottles, etc. The County does rake the beach. For a County as prosperous as Calvert they should do better. - RobertW

-Personal beach area
-Good power and water
-Nice warm water
-Boat and paddle board rental on site
-2 security gates
-Coincidentally spot 16 needs maintenance but we were given boards and assistance to get settled into the site
My family absolutely loved this campground! This was our first time staying at a public operated campground so some things took some getting used to. We were so pleased with the campground we are contemplating getting a seasonal site next year. We've been all the way to the Keys and haven't had as good of an experience as we had here.... - Slo Mo

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great.
Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also.
The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite.
Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland. - eb145
