Beach resort campgrounds can be notoriously overcrowded, noisy and poorly maintained. Not so at Big Oaks in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Although every inch of space is utilized and your neighbors are very nearby, the wooded sites offer a feeling of privacy and are mostly well planned. Restrooms and showers are cleaned regularly and in excellent condition. My only criticism is that for the amount of people camping here, there should be a few more. Nice pool, game room, friendly helpful staff. The DART bus stops here every 1/2 hr. or so to take you to all beaches and boardwalk. Well worth the $2.25, ride all day fare since traffic and parking can be a mess near the beaches. Cape Henlopen State Park is a 1/2 mile down the road also. I will absolutely return.
My first trip to Nashville and I had the luck to pick the most beautiful and spacious campground I have ever stayed in. Huge sites, meticulously landscaped, sculpted stone tables and seats. The Army Corp of Engineers know how to do it right. Situated on a gorgeous lake, it was hard to believe I was twenty minutes from downtown Nashville. Only $20.00 a night for my pop up. If it wasn't 800 miles from my home I would be here every week.
Lovely park. Sites are a bit close together, but the abundance of woods and shade help it to seem more private. Gettysburg battlefield is less than 10 minutes away, and the campground has shuttle buses to tours if you so desire. Friendly helpful staff, clean facilities, nice pool. We'll be back!
We stayed in the Miles loop, which offers no hookups, but has some great sites. The bottom of the loop overlooks the river (bay?). On Sunday night there were only 3 sites occupied in the loop, very secluded, and this is the prime summer season. Well stocked camp store with a sit-down grill serving breakfast and lunch. However, if you want to eat out, the town of North East is 15 minutes away and offers some great restaurants. Park offers a beach with swimming, restrooms, snackbar. Boat launch and bait shop close by, lots of hiking, the walk out to Turkey Point Lighthouse is a must. We will absolutely return.
Very nice newly restored campground. New bathhouse with private shower/toilet/sink "suites". New pool, play area, newly landscaped. Many of the sites are seasonally occupied but the owners keep a supply of transient sites available. The campground is bordered by Marsh Creek State Park, which offers a huge lake for boating, fishing and hiking. There is a large rec-hall/gameroom that is used for potluck Wednesdays. Very accommodating and friendly owners.
I made a mistake with a previous review for this campground.( The last review for this year of 2007) The one I stayed in was Brandywine CREEK Campground. I will rewrite the review for the proper place. I have confirmed that Brandywine Meadows no longer exists.
This is a small bare bones park, but is located on the waterfront of the Chesapeake Bay with a spectacular view. Rock Hall is a small town known for crabbing and fishing, and down the road a few miles is the East Neck Wildlife Refuge. This is a great spot to experience the eastern shore, especially if your into hiking, birding, and relaxing. The owners of the park are very knowledgable and accommodating, I think the Grandad is an old "waterman". The waterfront of Rock Hall has some new development with a decent restaurant and lots of sailboats, but thankfully is still low-key.
There is a group of us who camp here every year in the beginning of May when the park opens for the season. At this time there are generally lots of open sites, but the water park is not yet operative. The amusement park is free to enter, tickets are required for the rides. Two big wooden roller coasters, that are just awesome, are the main attraction. The campsites are mostly close together, but there are some more spacious and secluded sites around the perimeter. Well stocked camp store and a few mini-marts close by for supplies. Of course, everyone comes here for the amusement park, not to just camp, so you don't spend much time at the site except at night. A wonderful place to spend a few days, very refreshing when compared to the big corporate amusement parks.
I camped at Brandywine Meadows in July 2007. After reading the previous reviews, I had to submit an update. The park has been completely redone, shower and bath "suites" new and modern. The new pool opened in May, along with the new play area. Improvements in drainage and landscaping have upgraded the sites dramatically. Many sites are still seasonal, but you can usually get a transient spot. The owners are great and make you feel at home. Bordered by Marsh Creek State Park, the hiking and fishing are tops. This Park is actually located in Lyndell, PA, appox. 4 miles above Downingtown.
