This is a great state park. All the campsites have level, concrete pads and lots of space. There are trees around most of the sites that make them fairly private. The biggest draw of this campground, though is the lake and the dunes. There are miles of hiking trails along the dunes, most have a brochure. Be sure to check out the nature center you can get a birding list there and see many different species from their observation room.

This is a delightful little park. The sites are very close together, but level and easy to back into. There are only two restrooms, which is a bit of a concern when you don't have a bathroom (we don't), but always look like they've just been cleaned. The staff is wonderful--friendly and helpful. In spite of being right on a main road, the park is quiet at night.

This campground is outstanding! The rangers were very friendly--there was a problem with the site we had actually reserved, so she recommended two others and told us to pick one. The sites themselves are level and spacious. It's an easy walk to the visitor center (stop at the Troglobites snack shop--huge ice cream cones for $1.00 each!) After dark, the campground is very quiet. My kids were tickled with the deer and turkeys that wander through the campground in the morning. There are many activities in the park besides the cave tours (which are great)--lots of hikes, canoeing on the river (although you need to go outside the park to get a canoe to rent) and bike trails. I plan to go back.

This campground is utilitarian--the sites are crammed together, there is only one bathhouse so there was always a wait for the shower and sometimes for the toilets (at least one was always not working). The flies were horrible--we had to eat inside because of the number of flies that showed up when we made dinner. I would probably not go back to this park.

The only thing this site has going for it is it's location. The sites were not at all level, the pool was a concrete pit in the ground, and quiet hour only marginally enforced. The staff could give directions to local stores and the metro station, but weren't very friendly when they did so. I did like that it is close to both Baltimore and Washington, DC and that you could get to a Metro station easily, but that's about all.

Very nice campground. The staff is pleasant, the facilities are clean and the pool is large enough to accommodate everyone who showed up. The staff ran activities for the kids, gave great directions to all the local tourist sites and even helped us find our campsite and back in. The campground is bordered by a river and the campground offers canoes for rent for a very reasonable $7.00/hour! The only draw-backs to this campground are the road in--long and narrow--and the bathroom facilities which seemed small for the size of the campground and were up a steep hill. I'd recommend this campground to anyone who wants to camp in the Philadelphia area.

This campground is nice, but really caters more to the permanent people. The owners are extremely nice and helpful and fairly casual--for example, pool hours are posted, but often changed when the owners decide to close early or stay open longer. The campsites for overnighters without sewer are up on a hill with no chance of shade--a problem for us, since we're in a pop-up without an air conditioner. We did talk to the owner, though, who moved us--like I said, they are very nice. There are few amenities close by, so don't come in on an empty tank or stomach and hope to fill up easily. Overall, this was a nice campground if you want to relax or just camp overnight, but not really one to stay in for a week or so.
