Review on AllStays seemed nice so we booked an overnight stay on our trip. We were given alternate directions on phone because of low hanging trees on the GPS route. Thank goodness for that. Even with the improved directions we hit leaves and branches about seven times but no damage. The campground is in the middle of nowhere so would never use for an overnight again. When we arrived we were offered two spots to choose from. After a tight tour around the campground we went back to office as both were really not very level. The gentleman said to my wife, "Oh, you are in the ginormous rig." We are 35' feet, hardly ginormous in the motorhome world. He told her about a couple other sites, both of which were fine. We had a great night. Electrical (30 amp) was fine, water fine. Did not use sewer but hookup was convenient. The staff was quite nice though they should have warned about the lack of big rig facilities. Area was quite rural and very full with campers having a great time. Lots of four wheelers. Lots of families. Lots of long term residents. Several of the long termers had really improved their lots with decks and cookers and tables. If you are looking for a longer stay with a fifth wheel or a camper, this would really be nice - certainly a four or five. I could receive no Wi-Fi but did not ask about details. Bathrooms were older but pretty clean and adequate. We were really concerned about the noise from the carts and four Wheelers but by bedtime all was nice. Evening was quiet. There was even a wedding that day along with a reception. We walked by the area while to reception was going on and thought the music was a bit loud until we realized the door was open. When the door shut, we could barely hear it. I guess I have a bit of a problem with campgrounds that want to be everything to all people. They should have let us know about the tightness of the spots. Our slot was a pull-through but we had to back out to keep from running over short stumps. I guess that is why I chose a three instead of a four. We enjoyed the people and the place but the initial hassle was not worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Just when we thought the roads into a campground couldn't get any worse, we found this place. And the low-hanging branches over my site were bad enough that I did my own pruning prior to leaving. It was very quiet while we were here, since we were located at the end of the "seasonal area" where nobody seemed to reside at the time. Bathrooms and showers were old but adequate. The park WiFi was good, Verizon signal was weak. Our site was an end spot very close to to the next one, but spacing was sufficient in most areas. The 30A power and water pressure were good. Our site included a picnic table and fire ring. The staff was very friendly. There was access to the fantastic C & O Canal Rail Trail from the park, which was nice. Services in the small town of Hancock were about a 15-minute drive away. This campground is probably fine for most folks traveling in smaller units for a weekend, but the roads and sites are not intended for larger rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is my second time at this campground. The major drawback here, is all the seasonal campers and their ATVs and 4 wheelers driving around all day. There are a few ATV type trails at the end of the campground that they ride at, but you can only have an ATV or 4 wheel vehicle if you are a seasonal camper, so this doesn't serve well for anyone wishing to check that out. The sites fairly level, we had w/e/s and cable. They offer wifi service, but you have to pay, and the cell signal here is very weak, so don't bother paying for the wifi. The campground is run by a family, and they offer weekend activities that are fun. Both of my trips here, they had a live band play on Saturday night, which was fun. If you want to ride your bike or walk, the Western Maryland Rail Trail ( a paved trail ) is 3/4 of a mile from the campground. You could also drive into the town of Hancock ( maybe 5 minutes ), and access the trail there. That trail is very nice, paved and flat, and mostly shady. They don't seem to be strict here for noise, and do not come around and monitor you, which is nice, so they let you enjoy your camping. There isn't a lot in the area besides the bike trail and a possible day trip to Berkley Springs. The Potamac River is nearby, but I am not sure how to access it near this campground. They could use more help in the office, which they also have a snack shop run by the same folks running the desk, so its very busy and not organized. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
