This was our sixth trip to Old Mill Stream. Year after year, it never disappoints. Overall, the campground is expertly maintained. The sites in our area all appeared level and very clean. The staff is very friendly, even to our small children, which unfortunately seems to be rare nowadays, even in so-called family campgrounds. Most impressive are the shower facilities. They are extremely clean and well maintained. Vehicle traffic is average, and roads are nicely paved and safely rideable for small children. The small camp store is nicely stocked. Free coffee in the mornings! We will be back again next year.

We camped at the Cape Hatteras KOA for 1 week. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. After a long drive from Virginia battling severe storm after storm, we were welcomed into the campground by a helpful gentleman on a golf cart who backed us into our site and told us to check-in when we got settled...very nice touch! The pool is modern, huge, clean, and well stocked with modern chairs and tables. The pirate playground, complete with ship, wheel, and cannons is nice. The kids also enjoyed the large bouncer (think trampoline shaped like a whale's back. The Summer Shiners, who ran the activities for the kids, were also a lot of fun. On average, there are 3 to 4 planned activities a day for the kids/families, plus fitness activities for the adults. The wooden walkover to the beach provides easy access, although the beach was much narrower than we are used to (we camp yearly at Assateague State Park, MD), and the ocean was extremely rough. The sites were decent sized and mostly level. The bath house facilities were modern. Although the floors tend to get covered with sand, I still considered them to be acceptably clean. Plan on taking full advantage of the facilities and activities if you stay this far south in the Outer Banks, as there are just a few restaurants and shops in the immediate area.
Date of Stay: July, 2012
We camped here one night enroute to the Outer Banks. The office staff was courteous and helpful. We had an electric site which was available on a first come first served basis. The weather was horrible with heavy rain and storms throughout the night, so we did not do any exploring. The wife and kids advised the women's bathroom and shower facilities were dirty. Otherwise, our site was reasonably level and the park looked pretty nice. No issues maneuvering our rig, which is 53 feet long.

My family of five stayed three nights in electric loop H. This was our fifth trip to ASP. Nothing has changed: Friendly staff and Rangers, nice sites, great beach, reasonably clean showers. We will be back next year.
Date of Stay: October, 2011
This was our fifth family trip to Old Mill Stream. As in previous years, the campground was clean and quiet. The bath house facilities were spotless. The staff is courteous, hardworking, and accommodating. The campground is located on busy Route 30 but is just far enough in the woods to mask the majority of the traffic. The location affords access to many restaurants, outlets, and Amish attractions. I withheld a perfect "10" because (as mentioned in other reviews) the "T" configured sites can be a bit treacherous to get in and out of (we have a truck and trailer 53' long). Try and get one of the single sites, or arrive right at the 2pm check in for easiest access to the "T" sites. We will be back again next year!

We camped at Killen's Pond "C" Loop for two weeknights to take advantage of free waterpark and boat rental passes. Access to the loops is somewhat tight for larger rigs (our setup is 53 feet in length) but manageable. All of the sites were nicely shaded and seemed level. The bathrooms and showers were clean, and the staff was helpful. The campground (and park overall) are bike friendly (for children as well). As expected, the waterpark was somewhat crowded but very nice overall. The kids also enjoyed the park Nature Center. We would stay here again.
Date of Stay: May, 2010
As always, the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The restrooms and showers were clean, although the women's side in our loop did not always have hot water. Campground is well suited to families, with large paved bike path, nice playground, and a great beach. Sites are large and staggered, offering great privacy. Keep in mind that Assateague is a "wild" island, with plenty of ticks, wind, and frequent weather changes. We will definitely camp here again.
Date of Stay: August, 2009
The park staff was extremely courteous and helpful; among the nicest we have found in the four years our family has been camping. Our campsite, which was close to the entrance/exit and front bathhouse, was large and backed to trees and a fence. All sites and roads were well-maintained gravel, although we needed to use levelers for our camper. Our site, as well as many other areas throughout the park had well manicured grass and even mulched perennial flower gardens. The camp store was well stocked and had reasonable prices. Our only complaint was the pool area. While clean, the pool and surrounding "patio" was outdated. We would definitely stay here again.

Delaware Seashore State Park Campground is a good no-nonsense campground located on the Indian River Inlet between the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. We enjoyed the full hookups, short walk to the Inlet, and reasonably short walk to the beach. The beach was crowded yet enjoyable, and was staffed with lifeguards. The playground area was also very nice for my six year old. The campground staff (front gate) was courteous and helpful. All of the sites were pull-thru, although somewhat difficult to maneuver because they are so close together. The only negative was the small sites, which lacked privacy and enough space to park most larger trailers and tow vehicles together. We would stay here again in the future, but would request an end of row site for more space.
Date of Stay: August, 2008
We took advantage of a special 4 night package during the week for $45 nightly that included a "Red Carpet" Site (W/E/S/C), unlimited water park usage, 4 hour cart rental, and 2 free ice creams. This would have normally cost around $120 nightly. Having a "Red Carpet" site, we were quickly escorted by staff to our pull-thru site, which was a nice touch. The site (C-3) was well shaded, large, although slightly unlevel. The water park was extremely nice, clean, and large, with ample space and seating for our family. The game room, store, and pavilion were modern and well maintained. The staff were mostly helpful and friendly, except for one older "gentleman" who manned the store register, who felt the need to "shoosh" my 5 year old for calling her sister's name too loudly in an already crowded store. I was wondering if this was the same person who others have had issues with. Since it happened within the first 2 hours of our stay, it did not ruin it. The only other issue was found by my wife dealing with lack of cleanliness and overflowing of toilets and showers in the ladies bathhouse near the store. This, the normal rate of $120, and the grouchy guy in the store prevented us from giving Yogi's a 9 or a possible 10. We would stay here again, especially if we could find another discounted deal.
Date of Stay: July, 2008
Our site was private, shaded, and was located next to the catch-and-release fishing/swimming lake. The campground had very little vehicle and foot traffic in our area. The pool, store, restrooms, snack bar, and other facilities were clean and well maintained. The staff was courteous as well. We were particularly surprised at how well the seasonals were maintained, and how friendly most of the residents were. Overall, an excellent campground and a positive experience. We would camp here in the future.

We stayed at Eagle's Peak for three nights in one of two pull thru sites on "The Hill" with 30A/E/S/C. All of the sites here were well shaded, clean, and appeared to be mostly level. The showers were clean, although the water was extremely hot (in the men's). The family pool was great for the kids, especially the "walk-in" shallow end. However, we found that the pool became out of hand on Saturday. That is, many children and adults were running and rough housing, making it difficult to stay in the pool with our children. The pool definitely needs a lifeguard. This concern was expressed to CG management, who responded to our request within minutes, acknowledging that they probably need a lifeguard. Maintenance also responded to cable repair request within ten minutes! Nearly all interaction with CG personnel was positive, as they were polite and friendly. Overall condition of the campground was very good. Our 20 month old especially enjoyed the Sunday AM fire engine ride! We would recommend this campground to others, but would suggest using the pool during the weekday only.
Date of Stay: April, 2008
Excellent campground in oceanside setting. Wildlife was plentiful, deer, unusual birds, and of course the Assateague ponies. We camped for two nights with electric hookups in Loop H. Sites were paved and mostly level, each with a picnic table. Clean bathhouse, dumpsters, water, and dump station were located nearby. Loop was about 75% full during our stay, but the rest of the campground seemed to be around 10%, so the beach and paved biking trail were wide open. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Just remember that the campground is situated on a "wild" island, with many animals and insects (including ticks during our stay). Also, the weather, particularly the wind, can change from good to bad in a hurry. We will definitely camp here again.
Date of Stay: October, 2007
This is the third year that we have camped at Muddy Run. This park is clean and quiet. The sites and roads are paved, although our site (#25) was slightly unlevel. The paved roads make it easy for the kids to ride their bikes/scooters to the playgrounds, one of which is slightly more modern than the other, and is surrounded by finely shredded rubber mulch. Hiking on the trails to the lake is also enjoyable. The shower facilities are clean and acceptable. The gate personnel are friendly and helpful. Muddy Run is a great basic amenity park to relax and enjoy the change of seasons, since it is surrounded by mature trees, woods, and wildlife, particularly deer. We will be camping at Muddy Run again in the future.
Date of Stay: September, 2007
This was our second trip to Old Mill Stream in as many years. The campground is well shaded, clean, and quiet. The roads are paved, making bike riding easy for kids. The game room, store, and playground are minimal, yet acceptable. The showers and restrooms are very clean, air conditioned, and modern as well. The staff, including the owners, are extremely friendly and helpful. Back in sites however, are rather difficult to back into, a small price to pay for the overall relaxing experience at this campground. We will be returning next year.
