We stayed here for one night traveling from Yellowstone. We stayed at a pull though site that was shaded. The bathrooms were clean. The staff was very friendly. The campground was fine for a one night stay on the way to another destination.

We stayed in the North East loop of the state park. The campground has full hook ups. We stayed at site #23 which is a pull through and we think the best and roomiest site in the campground. We did have to level the trailer from side to side but that wasn't a problem. The bathrooms were clean. At night, most of the campers were respectful of quiet time and the rangers drove by regularly. The camp store is well stocked plus there is a small cafe that serves hot food. It is closed on Monday, though. The laundromat is next to the store. There is a pond behind the store where we took our inflatable raft out. There is a boat launch for the Chesapeake Bay, as well. There are many hiking trails that you can also mountain bike on. The trail to Turkey Swamp Lighthouse is a must especially at sunset. The town of North East (approx. 9 miles North) is charming with shops and restaurants. We recommend going to Woody's for crabcakes and warm lava cake. The beach was a big disappointment though. It is situated on the North East River and it is not like an ocean beach. The sand is not like ocean sand and there are many rocks along the shore and in the water. It is great for little boys though because the water is calm and shallow for quite a ways out. There is swimming in a pool (plus many other outdoor activities), however, at a place nearby called Cedar Cove which charges per family at a reasonable rate. We really enjoyed our stay.

We just stayed one night at this campground. It is convenient to Route 80. We called to check availability when we were about an hour and a half away. We also asked about rates because we have 9 children. The owner was very kind and quoted a rate not much over the usual 4 person rate (the above rate is for 4 people). When we arrived, the owner kindly guided us to our site and was extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities aren't all that fancy (though we had a great time playing pool), but the kindness of the owners more than make up for the campground's lack of amenities. The next time we need a place to stay enroute through Pennsylvania, we will definitely stay there.

We stayed just one night. All the sites are pull through and many are shady. The people there were very friendly and helpful.

This campground is a state park campground on a bluff overlooking the ocean (most sites do not have a view). We stayed at site #20 (no hookups). Most of the campsites have no hookups, but a few have electric. The shower/bathhouse is new, though there is a fee for showers. The beach is a short walk from the campground. Though, we could not see the ocean from our campsite, we could hear the ocean when we went to sleep. The rangers were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

The sites are somewhat tight, with neighbors close to you on three sides. There are small trees and a very small patch of grass that separate you from side neighbors. We did not have room to open our awning due to the trees. There are no picnic tables and little room to put a table out. Campfires are not allowed. Only hard sided RV's are allowed in this campground because of bear activity in the area. When we were there, bison roamed past our campsite. We were able to stay with our hybrid trailer with the bunkend closed. Laundry (very busy in the evening) and pay showers are nearby. Though there are many negatives, the location and access to hookups are a big plus. The campground is the only campground within the park with full hookups which makes staying at this campground well worth the hassles.

We were very disappointed with this campground. They are building a new indoor pool and because of construction, the place was a mess. We called early the day of our arrival to inform them that we will be checking in late (9 pm). We had reservations for a full hookup, pull thru site. They even told us on the phone, which site was reserved for us. When we arrived, they had changed our reservations and put us in a very out of the way back-in, elec/water site. Since we arrived late, everything was dark. We had a very difficult time finding our site because of all the construction. The least they could've done was send someone to help us. The rest of the campground was full of close campsites. Their "famous" buffet breakfast was not worth the price. The french toast was especially disappointing. I very much doubt that they will complete construction of their new indoor pool/spa by Memorial Day as they advertise. They could've at least kept the campsites in that area closed until they are finished with construction. We will never stay there again. It definitely gave a bad name for all KOAs in my opinion. At least their bathrooms were clean.

Nice, wooded, campground in county park. Level gravel sites are pull-thru with a fire ring and grate and picnic table. Water hookup is only available April 15 - November 15. Free dumpstation. Laundry facilities. Large lake for fishing. There are many hiking trails and 4 playgrounds. Rangers were very friendly and helpful. Since we stayed in early April, we had the campground nearly to ourselves so we do not know what it is like during the summer months. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely go back again.
